Vibrant, historic, sprawling, frustrating: Harlem, whether east, west, or central, has long been one of our favorite neighborhoods-to-watch. Despite popular misconceptions, Harlem is not homogeneous. In fact, Harlem (including East Harlem) is the single largest neighborhood in Manhattan, and as such has a wide range of housing, restaurants, entertainment, etc. And prior to the economic [...]
All the numbers about the increasingly competitive New York rental market might be interesting in the abstract–the lowest vacancy rate in a decade! fewer concessions by landlords! the highest prices in Manhattan in years!–but they can really hit home if you’re looking for a Manhattan rental apartment right now, or if your current lease is [...]

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.
