I talk a lot about the huge, neighborhood-changing projects that will make a difference not only for residents of NYC rental apartments in their immediate vicinity, but that will also have a lasting effect upon the city a whole.

A couple of different posts recently on two of my favorite real estate websites–namely, Curbed and Brick Underground–reminded me how difficult, even discouraging, the process of finding that perfect new home can seem when approached from afar, but also how it all usually works out for the vast majority of NYC rental apartment seekers.
Finding an apartment in the NYC area can be an arduous task. So everyone, especially those new to NYC, area always looking for renting tips to make the process go smoother. Below I will discuss a couple of important pointers for those of you starting your apartment search.
One of the best things to happen to this town in the past couple of decades has been the (for the most part) thoughtful, democratic and welcoming development of New York City’s long-neglected waterfront.
We’ve been hearing for years that the next hot neighborhoods for NYC rental apartments will be in Queens, particularly in the communities of Long Island City and Hunters Point, right across the East River from Midtown Manhattan.
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.
