Reversing its recent slump, Greenwich Village gained in popularity among prospective renters across Manhattan last week, according to apartment listings website Zumper.

The neighborhood nevertheless failed to crack the top five, led by the Upper West Side. The next four in line were the Upper East Side, West Village, Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea. The priciest inquiry was for a three-bedroom apartment in Chelsea seeking $6,500 per month. The cheapest was for a Central Harlem studio that be rented for $1,100 per month.

Two-bedrooms rose to having one-third of the leads, with a median inquiry of $2,700. One- and two-bedrooms trailed with 28 percent and 27 percent, respectively. Three-bedrooms, which saw a rare surge in popularity to 33 percent the previous week, is back to its old tricks. The apartment size had 12 percent of the leads.

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 July 6. — Mark Maurer
