The StreetEasy Hot Dozen: 12 rentals that may or may not be available by the time you read this

By Alex Hughes  | March 13, 2012 - 1:03PM

There are three Greenwich Village apartments at the top of this week's Hot Dozen, meaning more visitors clicked on these rental listings over the past seven days than any others. 

As usual, these apartments are moving fast and, in some cases, are gone already.

Take the number-one-most-clicked-on, for instance.  The East Village studio at 93 East 7th Street has already been rented at $1,500/month. The apartment’s location is ideal, but the ubiquitous white walls and unattractive oak strip flooring may take away from the excitement stirred up by the hip neighborhood.

A one-bedroom apartment in the West Village at 226 West 4th Street also garnered high traffic this week--we presume for its large amount of space at a relatively reasonable $2,700/month. The apartment is located steps from the Christopher Street number 1 train stop and boasts an extra room, over-sized kitchen--along with a slightly worn overall condition.

Coming at third-most-clicked-on is a one-bedroom convertible to a two-bedroom at 124 Macdougal Street for $2,475/month. Like the other Village apartments that made the Hot Dozen this week, location is its best selling point. The opportunity to live in the blocks between Washington Square Park and Houston Street may convince one to give up certain aesthetics or amenities, and although this convertible two-bedroom isn’t hideous, the parquet-floored space is on the generic side.
