Last week was food trucks, this week the topic is community gardens in NYC, specifically the East Village and Lower East Side. Our intrepid intern Brian scouts out some gems in the Lower East Side and the East Village that you may not know about. Talk about an oasis in the city.
Fresh off his tour last week of BoCoCA, Brian has returned this week with a rundown on some of the many NYC food trucks, whose profileration in the last few years can only be described as an explosion. There’s a bit of an “arms race” to offer the most unique and quality food, right off [...]

What is Urban Edge?
Urban Edge is a FREE no fee apartment website. Apartments for rent are listed by the owners, property managers, and leasing agents. Many of them connect their database directly to ours, so you're not looking at listings that have already been rented.
Here's what you WON'T find: bait and switch ads, brokers pretending to be owners, the same apartment posted by 20 different agents, and scam postings. How, you ask, do we do that?
This is how: no one posts an apartment for rent without their account first being approved by our top notch staff, trained to sniff out evil-doers (and brokers charging a fee).
Nabes we cover: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Staten Island, Westchester County, Nassau County, Northern New Jersey (Hudson, Bergen and Essex Counties), and Fairfield County in CT.
C’mon, Follow Us, You Know You Want To
