Will Brooklyn’s Williamsburg ever going to stop getting so much attention? Uh, probably not. Because as long as this dynamic neighborhood keeps changing, and people keep opening interesting new restaurants and stores and movie theaters and galleries, and especially, if people keep building new Williamsburg apartments, we are going to keep talking about it.

These days it seems that indoor swimming pools have become almost an expected amenity in a certain class of newly constructed luxury rental apartment buildings in Manhattan, and to a lesser extent, the outerboroughs.

Neighborhoods in New York City are constantly changing, or being renamed (Clinton, anyone?), or completely reinvented, as a community’s dominant character shifts, sometimes slowly, sometimes quite suddenly, from, say, industrial to residential.

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.
