RentHop is the best source for New York City listings, mapping photos, descriptions and street views. You can browse by feature, such as doorman, elevator, fitness center, in-bulding laundry or roof deck.

Bonus: Each post connects you directly with the broker or landlord who posted the listing, so you can avoid tiring content forms and emails.

If you’ve ever looked for an apartment to rent online, chances are you’ve had a go at Craigslist.

If you’re interested in keeping your apartment hunt online, but don’t know where to look aside from Craigslist, we’ve got the roundup for you. Here are 10 sites to help you find the perfect home in your neighborhood of choice and your price range.
