Midtown 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.

“Midtown’s popularity seems to coincide with a lot of the professionals relocating to New York City who want to be close to work,” Taylor Glass-Moore, co-founder and chief operating officer of Zumper, told The Real Deal.

Rounding out the top five neighborhoods getting the most heat were, in order, the West Village, the Upper East Side, the East Village and Harlem, the data show. The West Village led the pack the prior week.

“Harlem’s popularity shows that renters priced out of some of the usually popular neighborhoods are now looking at other areas,” Glass-Moore said.

In terms of unit types, one-bedroom apartments were the most popular for the third consecutive week, comprising almost 55.2 percent of renter inquiries to brokers. The median rent query was for $2,650 per month. Last week, one-bedrooms had 55.8 percent of renter queries.

Two-bedroom apartments trailed with 31 percent, with a median rent inquiry of $3,200.

Studios and three-bedrooms had 10.3 percent and nearly 3.5 percent of leads, with a median inquiry of $2,000 and $3,000, respectively.

The rankings were determined by a representative sample of emails and phone calls sent by Zumper users in response to Manhattan rental listings available on the site during the week of June 20 through June 27.Mark Maurer
