Living within a few blocks on Central Park is a matter of envy to almost all New Yorkers, which may be why several apartments close to Manhattan's verdant heart are at the top of this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments Streeteasy.com visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.
A furnished studio at 340 Amsterdam Avenue and West 76th Street is listed at $1,250/month. Since the apartment can be rented short-term or long-term, it could be perfect for renters just moving to the city and looking to gain a footing, so long as you don't mind sharing a bathroom with one other apartment. (There is a sink, microwave and mini fridge, however.)
Just one block over is a no-fee sunny, one-bedroom apartment at 144 West 76th Street and Amsterdam Avenue listed at $2,500/month. The apartment is located in an owner-occupied townhouse and boasts a foyer and fireplace.
A three-bedroom apartment at 251 Central Park West and West 85th Street is listed at a whopping $10,000/month. Not only does the large apartment have direct views of that park that is only on the other side of the street, but the unit has great amenities like a washer and dryer hookup, ample storage, and the potential to be converted into a four-bedroom.

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.
