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

After a certain amount of time renting in the city, you may tire of the cracked white walls and poorly installed wood flooring omnipresent in our housing stock. For a slightly increased budget,  you can trade up to remodeled apartments and new buildings that aren't a painful eyesore. Three of the apartments on this week's Hot Dozen -- the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days -- have been newly remodeled or built.

Consider this two-bedroom apartment at 32 Thompson Street and Grand Street that is listed at $3,000/month and is no fee. The newly-remodeled apartment in the heart of SoHo has a brand new ktichen with granite countertops and a marble-tiled bathroom.

A three-bedroom apartment at 317 Second Avenue and 18th Street is listed at $5,000/month and is also no fee. The newly remodeled apartment (in a walk-up building) has exposed brick walls, granite countertops, marble bathrooms, crown molding, new hardwood floor, and is located a short distance to Union Square.

You're too late for this no-fee two-bedroom on 90 West Street and Albany Street, listed for $4,300/month, which is in contract. The Financial District apartment is located in a luxury building. The apartment has its own washer and dryer, stainless steel kitchen appliances, custom closet shelving, and a gym in the building. Plus, many subway lines ( R, 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, A, C, E, J, and Z) are only a short walk away.

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.
