New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. Everyone panics that they aren’t 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 these 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.

207 Madison St #20A

Three-bedroom in Two Bridges, $3,400/month ($1,133 per person)

“What’s that neighborhood south of Lower East Side between those two bridges?” It’s a question many of us have asked ourselves while spending a night venturing south of East Broadway. Turns out, it’s called Two Bridges, lending new credence to the theory that the easiest answer is often the right one. Snatch up this steal of a three-bedroom on Madison Street and you can spend the remainder of your lease quietly chuckling at all your friends who refer to your ‘hood as, “Chinatown, but like, on the water.”
