The Upper East Side is the most in-demand Manhattan neighborhood for another week, extending its reign to nearly one straight month, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website.

The other popular spots, in order, are the Upper West Side, NoMad, Kips Bay and Murray Hill. All but the Upper West Side are located in eastern Manhattan. Renters again asked brokers about two-bedroom apartments more than any other, with 41 percent of the inquiries and a median rent query of $2,948 a month. The previous week, the query was $2,850 a month.

“The search price for one-, two- and three-bedroom units increased, with one-bedrooms increasing the most – at more than 20 percent,” Zumper COO Taylor Glass-Moore told The Real Deal.

One-bedrooms had 19 percent and $2,698, while three-bedrooms had 14 percent in $3,950. The median prices were $2,230 and $3,350, respectively, the week before, data show.

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. 23.Mark Maurer
