Prospective renters’ interest in two-bedroom rental units in Manhattan held strong last week, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website. The apartment type hung on to 41 percent of the leads, down slightly from 44 percent the week before.

Studio apartments had 24 percent of the leads, while one-bedrooms and three-bedrooms had 23 percent and 12 percent respectively. The median rental inquiry for two-bedrooms was $2,650 per month, Zumper data show.

The priciest rental inquiry last week was for a two-bedroom penthouse on the Upper East Side renting for $8,000 per month. The most popular neighborhoods were, in order, Upper East Side, East Village, the Upper West Side, Hell’s Kitchen and Kip’s Bay. Hell’s Kitchen snuck into the top five, which is nearly identical to the week prior.

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 June 15. — Mark Maurer
