The West Village may have been the most in-demand Manhattan neighborhood for would-be renters last week, but the searches for listings along the Bowery more than doubled from previous weeks, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website.

Despite the Bowery’s surge in popularity, it did not crack the top five. The ones that did were the Upper East Side, East Village, the Upper West Side and Chelsea. When it comes to apartment size, one-bedrooms smoked the competition, with 42 percent of the leads and a median inquiry of $2,375 per month. Next, two-bedrooms had 33 percent and $2,800, followed by studios with 20 percent and $2,100 and three-bedrooms with 5 percent and $5,150, according to Zumper data. 

The priciest inquiry was for a two-bedroom in Greenwich Village asking $7,900 per month, while the cheapest inquiry was for a Hell’s Kitchen studio listed for $1,450.

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 27. — Mark Maurer
