Chelsea's combination of convenience and hip neighborhood reputation makes the nabe an enviable place to live. It's not exactly known as affordable though, which may be why several lower-priced Chelsea listings made this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments Streeteasy.com visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.
A renovated studio is at 319 West 29th Street and Eighth Avenue is listed at $1,575/month. The walk-up building is convenient to almost every form of public transportation due to its close proximity to Penn Station. Electricity is also included in the apartment's rent, which could add up to a couple hundred bucks a month or more.
A two-bedroom, one-bath apartment at 101 West 27th Street and Sixth Avenue (pictured) is listed at $3,500/month. Not only does the apartment have a separate dining and office area, but it also has a kitchen with nice granite countertops. Enviable even more than the cooking facilities is that the apartment has its own set of washer and dryer, saving you the annoying trip to the laundromat.
A little further south is this two-bedroom, one-bath no-fee apartment at 240 West 15th Street and Eighth Avenue listed at $3,300/month. The building is in lower Chelsea, close to trendy West Village. The apartment is also less than 500 feet away from the A, C, E, and L lines, making commuting for work or fun a breeze.

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.
