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

Thanks to countless transportation options, Midtown is one of Manhattan's most convenient neighborhoods. It shows up three times on this week's Hot Dozen--the 12 rental apartments visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days.

A no-fee one-bedroom condo at 135 East 54th Street and Lexington Avenue is available for rent at $2,295/month. The roomy looking apartment is has sun-drenched south-facing windows (which must let in a LOT of light, judging by the thick white custom made shutters).  It's  located in a full-service, smoke-free postwar doorman building.

Further down in Murray Hill, you'll find a no-fee studio apartment at 314 East 41st Street and Second Avenue  listed at $1,600.  This one is also in a doorman building. The apartment features a separate galley kitchen and lots of prewar details.

one-bedroom apartment at 318 East 34th Street and Second Avenue  listed at $1,900/month with a low broker fee has been rented. The cozy apartment is bright, and pets are allowed, although any animal bigger than a fish may be unfit for the apartment's small size.

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.
