The hurricane that wasn't has passed and it's time you come out of your bunker and get back to apartment hunting. This week's Hot Dozen roundup of the most popular rental listings on Streeteasy.com is a good place to start.
Whether you're going for practical (like this sun-drenched, newly renovated $3,000/month 2-bedroom in the East Village) or over-the-top (see photo and caption!) the dozen should inspire you enough to start clicking and calling around.
If the place you set your sights on requires a guarantor and you don't have one, check the listing or ask to see if the landlord accepts Insurent, a simple solution from one of BrickUnderground's sponsors.
