The 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, the Upper West Side, Gramercy, the Upper East Side and Nolita, the data show. The East Village topped the West Village, which held the top spot the prior week but is nowhere to be seen this time. Nolita, meanwhile, made its debut on the list.

In terms of unit types, one-bedrooms were the most popular, comprising 44 percent of renter inquiries to brokers. The median inquiry was for monthly rent of $2,345, the data show.

Two-bedrooms, the previous week’s most wanted, trailed with 23 percent of the leads and a median inquiry of $3,182 a month. Studios and three-bedrooms saw 19 and 12 percent of leads, with median inquiries of $1,775 and $3,425 a month, respectively. Two percent of the leads were for four-bedrooms and above.

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 July 11 through July 18.Mark Maurer
