East 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, Kips Bay, the Upper East Side, Gramercy and the Financial District, the data show. Midtown led the pack the prior week, but did not crack the top five this time around.

In terms of unit types, two-bedroom apartments were the most popular, comprising 40 percent of renter inquiries to brokers. The median rent inquiry was $2,740 per month. Studios trailed with 31 percent, and a median rent inquiry of $1,875 per month.

One-bedroom apartments’ three-week streak has been broken. Those units fell to third place, receiving 18 percent of the leads, with a median inquiry of $2,200. Three-bedrooms had 11 percent, with a median inquiry of $3,350.

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 27 through July 4.Mark Maurer
