One-bedroom apartments comprised more than half of the Manhattan apartment searches from prospective renters last week, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website. Fifty-six percent of the leads were for that apartment size. The median inquiry for one-bedrooms was $2,800 per month.

Studios and two-bedrooms were far behind, with 21 percent and 20 percent of the leads apiece. The former had a median inquiry of $2,100, while the latter had a median inquiry of $3,000. Three-bedrooms again had the thinnest sliver of the pie – with 3 percent of the leads and a $3,295 inquiry.

For the second-straight week, the West Village was the most in-demand borough in the neighborhood for would-be renters, Zumper data show. Following that neighborhood were, in order, Chelsea, Upper West Side, Upper East Side and Kips Bay.

Methodology: Zumper determined the rankings by using a representative sample of emails and phone calls from renters interested in its Manhattan listings available for the week ending April 6. — Mark Maurer
