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

If you're sick of roommates, your best and most affordable bet for living alone in Manhattan is to get a studio. And it seems a lot of New Yorkers are yearning to go this route. Inexpensive studios are at the top of this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.

The studio apartment at 346 East 77th Street and Second Avenue is listed at $822/month. Not only is the apartment almost half the price of the other relatively inexpensive apartments on this list, but it is also no fee. However, the apartment is restricted to a certain income bracket, and guarantors are not allowed.

A studio apartment at 49 West 11th Street and Sixth Avenue is listed at $1,450/month. The apartment is very small, but is rent-stabilized and in a great West Village location. The landlord welcomes students and guarantors.

The studio apartment at 304 East 28th Street and Second Avenue is listed at $1,600/month. The apartment has a separate kitchen and is on the second floor of a walk-up building. Pets are allowed, and there is a live-in super. The apartment is a trek from the closest subway and is right next door to the Queens-Midtown Tunnel, making the price seem, well, pricey.

For more of the most popular listings of the week--from studios to three- bedrooms, elevator buildings to walkups--check out the links below.

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.
