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 of neighborhoods getting the most heat were, in order, the Upper East Side, Chelsea, Gramercy and the Upper West Side, the data show. The East Village led the pack the prior week, but did not make the list this time. Of the top five, only the Upper East Side cracked it two weeks in a row.

In terms of unit types, two-bedroom apartments again were the most popular, comprising 48 percent of renter inquiries to brokers. The median inquiry was for monthly rent of $2,695, the data show.

Studios and one-bedrooms trailed closely, with 24 percent and 23.5 of the leads, respectively. Median inquiries were $1,700 for studios and $2,300 for one-bedrooms. Three-bedrooms apartment didn’t fare well, with 4.5 percent of the leads and a median inquiry of $3,600 a month.
