The StreetEasy Hot Dozen: 12 rentals that may or may not be available by the time you read this
New Yorkers went on a renting spree this week (it is rental high season after all), with 11 out of 12 of this week's Hot Dozen --the apartments Streeteasy.com visitors clicked on most often over the past 7 days--already rented.
The only apartment that's still available is a somewhat shabby looking $2,575 two-bedroom at 124 MacDougal Street and Minetta Lane - $2,575. At least one of the bedrooms appears to be a sleep loft, but that might be overlooked when you consider the central Greenwich Village location and the fact that there is no broker's fee.
Among the already-rented:
- A one bedroom apartment at 429 East 65th Street and York Avenue with an open kitchen (including dishwasher) and hardwood floors. There was no broker's fee, which is probably one reason someone snatched it up at $1,895/month.
- A three-bedroom apartment at 331 Lexington Avenue and 39th Street that was listed at $3,995 and was no fee as well. The corner unit boasted stainless steel kitchen appliances, a marble bathroom, pet friendliness and a 3 block walk from Grand Central.
- A $3,500/month three-bedroom apartment at 138 East 74th Street and Lexington Avenue in a pre-war townhouse a few blocks from Central Park.
