Nearly 3,000 people submitted 30-second videos in a bid to win a massively discounted 10-month rental lease for a fully furnished 1,380-square-foot luxury apartment in the West Village. The winning contestant would receive a whopping 90 percent off of the estimated monthly rental value of $7,000 and pay a mere $700 a month for the two-bedroom property at One 7th Avenue South.
