Manhattan renters were hungry for studios last week, searching out such modest digs with more frequency than any other type of apartment, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website.

Studios were 55 percent of total inquiries, and the median rent query was $1,795 per month. One-bedrooms, often the most popular type, had 35 percent of the leads and the median query was $1,895. Two-bedrooms had the smallest chunk of leads – 10 percent – and an average query of $2,695.

“The searched prices for studios remained stable, [while] one-bedrooms dropped 16 percent,” Zumper COO Taylor Glass-Moore told The Real Deal. “Two-bedrooms climbed 45 percent.”

The top five most in-demand neighborhoods in Manhattan were, in order, the Upper East Side, Greenwich Village, Upper West Side, Soho and Lower East Side, 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 ending Dec. 29.Mark Maurer
