The Upper East Side was the most in-demand Manhattan neighborhood with renters for the third week in a row.

The Upper West Side, never too far behind, took second place. Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen and NoMad rounded out the top five, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website. The common link? All neighborhoods are located north of 23rd Street. Renters asked brokers about two-bedroom apartments more than any other, with 41 percent of the inquiries and a median rent query of $2,850 a month.

The frequent front-runner, one-bedroom apartments, slipped a bit, with 19 percent and $2,230. Studios had 26 percent and $1,875 – as compared to $1,495 the previous week.

“We continue to see an increase in what renters are willing to pay for studios,” Zumper chief operating officer Taylor Glass-Moore told The Real Deal. “The demand for two-bedrooms increased by 20 percent.” – Mark Maurer

Methodology: Zumper determined the rankings by using a representative sample of emails and phone calls from renters interested in its Manhattan listings available during the week of Sept. 16.
