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

Whether you’re looking uptown or downtown, apartments on the West side of Manhattan are the focus of this week's Hot Dozen--meaning more visitors clicked on these rental listings than any others.

A large one-bedroom “loft” at 228 West 4th Street and West 10th Street in the West Village is listed at $3,600/month and judging from the rather fabulous (and numerous) photos, is quite a potential catch. Aside from the picture-perfect neighborhood and proximity to the subway, the 900-square-foot prewar apartment has a separate kitchen, dining area, and living room. The building has a live-in super and remote doorman system. Downsides: There's no mention of laundry facilities, and the building is a walk-up. 

Further uptown, a three-bedroom 1,600-square foot garden duplex at 55 West 88th Street and Columbus Avenue is listed at $6,500 with no broker's fee, available July 1st. The 5-unit brownstone building is less than a block away from Central Park and the apartment features a decorative fireplace, 10-foot ceilings and a private patio. In the same building, a two-bedroom 1,400-square foot apartment with a large private terrace, is also available this summer for $6,500/month. But be forewarned: For each unit, the landlord is requiring 2 months security deposit plus first month's rent....that's $19,500 just to step inside.
