Greenwich Village was the most in-demand neighborhood for tenants looking for a rental apartment in Manhattan in the last week, according to data from apartment listings website Zumper.

Rounding out the top five neighborhoods getting the most attention were, in order, the Upper West Side, West Village, Gramercy and a tie between Chelsea and Soho, the data show.

In terms of unit types, one-bedroom apartments were the most popular, comprising 60 percent of renter inquiries to brokers. The median rent query was for $2,700 a month.

The median query for two-bedrooms — trailing one-bedrooms with 23 percent of the leads — was for $3,072. During the previous week, two-bedrooms dominated, with 54 percent of renter queries.
