The West 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 heat were, in order, the Upper West Side, Hell’s Kitchen, the Theater District and a tie between Greenwich Village and the Upper East Side, the data show.
