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

While many renters turn to studios if they want a space of their own, one-bedrooms are (obviously) even better if you can afford them. This week, three of these command the top of this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.

Take, for example, a one-bedroom apartment at 221 West 28th Street and Seventh Avenue listed at $1,895/month. It's right next to the Fashion Institute of Technology's campus and a short walk to commuter-friendly Penn station. Ample amounts of closet space in the apartment's living room means more storage and less bulky furniture, plus the building is pet-friendly and offers a Virtual Doorman.

On the Upper West Side, a one-bedroom apartment at 316 West 88th Street and West End Avenue is listed at $2,000/month. The apartment is located on the parlour-level of a brownstone with high ceilings and big windows facing a treelined street. Only cats (no dogs) are allowed in this traditional abode.

Down in the West Village, a  junior one-bedroom apartment at 165 Christopher Street and Washington Street is listed at $2,500/month. The apartment building boasts its own recreation and laundry facilities, as well as a live-in super. Unfortunately, the apartment is in contract.

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.
