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

By Alex Hughes  | April 16, 2013 - 1:07PM

There are highs and lows in this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days. Among the lower-end apartments are single room occupancy studios in the $1,000 per month range, and on the high-end an over-$7,000-per-month three-bedroom on Central Park West.

A compact, lofted $1,500 studio (pictured) at 20th Street and Eighth Avenue (another hip and convenient neighborhood) is a single room occupancy unit in a townhouse. Again, utilities are included and pets are allowed (if you can find room for one), but note that this apartment features a communal bathroom, shared with two other tenants.

Also in the SRO category: This $1,300 single room occupancy studio on East 7th Street and Second Avenue. It has a private bath and southern exposure. All utilites are included and the East Village location is pretty darn desirable.

On the high end of the spectrum is a $7,495 three-bedroom at Central Park West and West 83rd Street. This nearly 2,000-square-foot "classic six" co-op has a working fireplace, a washer-dryer, an eat-in kitchen and a dining room. Note: the third bedroom is actually a "maid's/nanny's room," meaning it's small.

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 here.
