The 10 Most Popular Manhattan Rentals of the Past Week

New, 8 comments

Here now, the top ten most popular Manhattan rental listings of the last week, based on pageview data from our friends at StreetEasy. Top picks are all studios and one-bedrooms, mostly located downtown.


10) 161 West 16th Street, #16J, Chelsea
This popularity contest starts in Chelsea with a studio that has a walk-in closet, semi-separate kitchen, and a tiled bathroom. Rent is $3,000, and the building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, rooftop deck, bike storage, and a laundry room. The building allows pets and no co-op board approval is needed.


9) 55 Morton Street, #2B, West Village
The $2,750/month price tag has probably attracted viewers to this one-bedroom on Morton Street, but it's been on the market for 94 days, so clearly it has some issues—like the fact that it's on the ground floor. On the plus side, it has a working fireplace, and the building has an elevator if you ever want to venture upstairs.


8) 32 Jones Street, #2A (aka 377 Bleecker Street), West Village
Staying in the West Village, there's a very sterile-looking—the brokerbabble prefers "modern feel"—one-bedroom with hardwood floors and exposed brick. The kitchen has a dishwasher and new appliances, and while there are a decent amount of windows, most have a not-so-lovely view of a blank wall. Asking rent is current $3,600, which was just upped by $100.


7) 30 West 61st Street, #11A, Lincoln Square
This 1,247-square-foot two-bedroom has been on the market since late January and has seen two rentchops to the current ask of $4,800 per month. It's located in a full-service condo building, has two full bathrooms and an abundance of closets, but it looks like it needs some updating. It's also listed for sale for $1.7 million, and the brokers helpfully (?) digitally staged the place in case you can't imagine furniture in the unit.


6) 317 East 18th Street, #3E, Gramercy Park
A teeny tiny studio on East 18th Street between First and Second Avenues is asking $1,700. The living space measures just 12-feet by 12-feet, which is probably why it's not pictured. But hey, the kitchen has a window! It's available furnished or unfurnished.


5) 203 Spring Street, #1, Soho
This nice-looking one-bedroom has hardwood floors, 10-foot ceilings, and an open kitchen with a dishwasher.The bedroom can open into the living room through French doors, and the unit has a washer/dryer. Rent is $3,200.


4) 316 Mott Street, #3C, Noho
Also asking $3,200, this unit is a one-bedroom located on the fourth floor of a prewar walk-up. The listing says it's "newly gut-renovated," and the kitchen has stone countertops and stainless steel appliances (including a half-sized fridge).


3) 304 West 10th Street, #3A, West Village
This West Village studio doesn't have much going for it, except for the fact that there's no fee and the rent was recently reduced by $55 to $2,095 per month. It's on the second floor of a prewar walk-up, and the listing photos are terrible, but they do show how teeny tiny the open kitchen is.


2) 77 Seventh Avenue, #4C, Chelsea
A 625-square-foot one-bedroom in Chelsea is listed for $3,000, which includes electricity and gas. It looks quite spacious and has nice parquet floors, but the living room has no windows. The building has a rooftop deck and a doorman.

1) 111 West 16th Street, #1N Chelsea
And the week's most popular rental listing doesn't even have photos. But it does have a no-fee, $1,850 per month studio. It's only 250-square-feet, and three months security deposit is required to move in.
