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

The Upper West Side offers a wide array of surprisingly (by Manhattan standards) affordable apartments and this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days--mixes comfort and affordability.

Among the choicest options this week: A two-bedroom apartment at 370 Columbus Avenue and 78th Street is listed at $2,895/month. The freshly renovated apartment is at the top floor of an elevator building with a live-in super and is across the street from the Natural History Museum. The apartment also has a new granite kitchen (though it's tiny), its own washer and dryer, and a skylight in the living room adding significant natural light.

A few blocks away, a furnished studio apartment at 340 Amsterdam Avenue and West 76th Street is listed at $1,250/month. The downside? The apartment has its own sink, but lacks its own private bathroom. The unit shares a communal bathroom with another apartment, which seriously detracts from the pad's free furnishings and minute-long walk to Broadway.

Further north on 661 West End Avenue and 92nd Street is a studio apartment listed at $1,350/month. The walk-up apartment boasts a large closet and the building has its own laundry facilities, saving you the tiring trip to the laundromat. Guarantors are also accepted, making this apartment attractive to new/recently graduated students.

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.
