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

Among the apartments making it onto this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days--are some no-fee options on the Upper West and Far Upper West Side.

At 244 West 99th Street and Broadway, you'll find six floors of furnished rooms for rent from $1,400-$2,300/month. The listing calls them studios, but you will be sharing a bathroom and kitchen with your neighbors. They're available on a flexible short-term basis, from one to 10 months. On the bright side, the bathrooms are cleaned daily by the staff and they're newly renovated.  The apartments sounds like an adult dormitory and may be suitable for those in a pinch, or for interns looking for summer housing.

Nearby at 150 West 92nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue a two-bedroom condo is for rent at $3,300/month  The apartment's furnished and shares a common roof top with the rest of the building. Plus, there's an elevator and a laundry room in the building's basement, making any tenant's life easier.

Further north, a (very small!) one-bedroom apartment at 29 West 118th Street and Fifth Avenue in Central Harlem is listed at $866/month and has no broker's fee. There are no photos and the apartment is income specific: it is reserved for renters who make less than $39,000/year. 

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 here.
