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

Manhattan's East Village is eternally popular--especially with New York newbies--partially because it's walking distance of other hot neighborhoods like Gramery Park, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and the Lower East Side, and partially because it has a bustling nightlife. Three apartments located in the enviable East Village appear on this week's Hot Dozen -- the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.

three-bedroom apartment at 50 East 3rd Street and Second Avenue (pictured) is listed at $5,150 and appears to be a dream listing for roommates. Not only is the apartment fully renovated with sleek new kitchen appliances, exposed brick walls, and oak floors, all three bedrooms (each exactly the same size, making squabbles about who should get the biggest room moot) have their own en-suite bathrooms and private storage space. Guarantors are welcome.

A two-bedroom apartment at 431 East 9th Street and Avenue A is listed at $2,400/month and has no broker fee. The Alphabet City pad has a laundry facility in the building (a plus), but note it's a little bit of a walking distance to the nearest subway stop (a minus).

One block west is a studio apartment at 160 First Avenue and East 10th Street listed at $1,655/month. Located on the third floor of a walk-up building, the studio is unique in that the space is divided up into two rooms, an eat-in kitchen and a "bedroom" that may give one the attractive illusion that they're in a tiny one-bedroom apartment instead of a regular-sized studio.

For more of the most popular listings of the week--from studios to three-bedrooms, elevators to walkups--check out the links below.

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. New to NYC? Check out our crash course in finding an apartment.
