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

At the top of this week's Hot Dozen -- the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days -- we've got two midtown pads -- one spacious (and well-priced) and one just well-priced. There (was) a third well-priced place, too -- this one in the usually expensive West Village--though it's no longer available.

three-bedroom apartment at 354 West 44th Street and 9th Avenue is listed at $3,995/month with no broker's fee. The apartment is exceptionally spacious (by Manattan's standards) at 1,400 square feet, leaving room for a walk-in closet (!), decorative fireplaces, and skylights. Plus, the apartment takes up the whole floor, increasing its privacy to a certain extent, and there's a washer-dryer.

Just one block down in Clinton Hill, a studio apartment at 357 West 43rd Street and 9th Avenue is listed at $1,500/month. Although the apartment itself looks more like a senior citizen's garage than a place to call home, it's rent stabilized, and comes with an air conditioner for the hot summer months. And it comes with it's own small, dirty concrete "backyard" that is almost unheard of when it comes to inexpensive apartments or studios at all. This one's definitely a fixer-upper.

You're just a little too late for a one-bedroom apartment at 16 Christopher Street and West 8th Street, which was listed at the inexpensive-for-the-area price of $2,000/month. The tiny kitchen is almost non-existent, but the low price for the prime address is what makes this apartment at standout.

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.
