Some surprisingly affordable apartments (by New York standards) make up many of this week's Hot Dozen--the apartments Streeteasy.com visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.
A studio apartment at 155 East 77th Street and Lexington Avenue is in a great location and is listed at $1,400/month. There's no fee on the lease, the building has an elevator and a laundry room, and the live-in super accepts packages while you're away. The hardwood flooring looks rough, but that's nothing a good rug can't fix.
A studio apartment at 625 Greenwich Street and Leroy Street (pictured) is listed at $1,800/month. The apartment is tiny but looks newly-renovated with a sparkling white kitchen and bathroom. You also have your own private entrance to the street, which could cut either way depending on your privacy vs security needs.
Not too far away, a studio apartment at 181 Thompson Street and Bleecker Street was rented for the surprisingly low price of $1,300/month. The studio is in the heart of Greenwich Village and boasts high ceilings and windows. No interior pictures of the apartment were posted online, but it must not have been too bad as it's already been snatched off the market.
A one-bedroom condo at 449 West 46th Street and 10th Avenue is listed at $1,570/month and is available for either short-term or long-term rental. The apartment comes furnished with a queen-sized bed and flatscreen TV, among other amenities, which could be enough to convince someone to move within a block or so of Times Square.

If the apartment you like requires a guarantor that you don't have, see if the landlord accepts Insurent, a great solution from one of BrickUnderground's sponsors.
