New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. People panic about not getting enough for their money, which is why we’re taking a weekly look at what you can get in this town for around $1,000 per person (and we promise, there’ll be no nightmare apartment listing). No one wants to end up in the world’s most depressing apartment (and equally, not everyone has the cash to get the kind of place Obama could afford to rent if he moves to New York), so take a look at these attractive, spacious places—but do it quickly, because they will be gone before you know it. Come back next week for more of our top picks from real-estate site Zumper’s inventory. And if you’re still struggling, try our NYC apartments guide.

Lincoln Place

Five-bedroom in Crown Heights, $4,800/month ($960 per person)

First off, five bedrooms? Who even has that many friends? But hey, if you somehow won the friendship lottery, this massive Crown Heights flat would be a pretty rad place to call home. The photos show a work in progress, which is how you know the renovations are fresh: a brand-new kitchen (with a skylight!), washer and dryer, high ceilings and exposed brick, plus a pretty spacious (private!) roof deck.

29-10 Astoria Blvd

Two-bedroom in Astoria, $2,350/month ($1,175 per person)

This Queens pad has convenience in spades, being practically under the N and Q trains and a stone’s throw from both Bohemian Beer Garden and Sweet Afton (plus a host of other local bars and eateries). Aside from that, it boasts the most plentiful pantry space we’ve seen in a while (finally, room for your vintage dishware/jam collection/Costco stockpiling) and spacious, hardwood-floored bedrooms.

Leonard St & Meserole St

Three-bedroom in Williamsburg, $2,799/month ($933 per person)

We were already sold once we spotted the private garden at this duplex—it’s never too early to start planning for next summer’s barbecues—but the adorable, well-lit kitchen nook, sizable bedrooms, central heat and killer East Williamsburg location sealed the deal.

E 46th St #2F

Four-bedroom in Midtown, $4,900/month ($1,225 per person)

This may be the priciest apartment on this list, but for a prime Manhattan location it ain’t too shabby a deal, with Grand Central, Bryant Park and the East River all within a 10-minute walk (and if you work in the area, a next-to-nonexistent commute). On top of that, the layout is surprisingly roomy, and there’s a washer/dryer in the unit.

Central Park West & West 109th St

Four bedroom on the Upper West Side, $3,600/month ($900 per person)

Yes, you can live on Central Park for just a scant $900 a month. For some reason the listing's photos all seem to focus on the floors (they are nice and shiny, to be fair), but the kitchen appears to be clean and updated, and we’re not mad that there's ample closet space.
