For as long as I can remember, it’s been like this: the city is for renting; the suburbs are for when you want to buy a house. Today, though, all that’s changing, with the rise of suburban apartments.
Residents of Long Island City rental apartments have been hearing for years what they already know: this once-industrial, increasingly-residential neighborhood has just about fully come into its own, offering an appealing combination of local character, first-rate food and cultural offerings, and super-convenient transportation to both Midtown West and Midtown East in Manhattan and, thus, everywhere [...]

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.
