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

In what is perhaps a sign of the college grads about to descend upon Manhattan and in need of shelter, all but two of this week's Hot Dozen (the rental listings clicked on more than any others on during the past 7 days) are located downtown, south of 23rd Street.

In the heart of the West Village is this three-bedroom, one-bathroom share-friendly duplex apartment at 40 Morton Street and Bedford Street listed at $4,995/month. Half of it appears to be underground, and some of the rooms have a claustrophobic, bunker-ish feeling but a washer/dryer and a private “garden”—well, concrete backyard—certainly sweeten the deal of this very sweetly located place.

A bit further north is a recently renovated one-bedroom apartment at 304 West 14th Street and 8th Avenue listed at $1,995/month. The renovation added some nice new wood floors, stainless steel appliances, a re-tiled bathroom and what looks like a resurfaced clawfoot tub...where you may need to chillax after hauling your laundry and groceries up five flights of stairs. The bedroom is on the small side but there's the compensatory pleasures of having a live-in super and a nice view of the West Village from one of the apartment's many windows.
