“Downtown” NYC apartments actually span a number of neighborhoods, from the Village (West Village, Greenwich Village, East Village) all the way down to FiDi. Basically, anything below 14th Street is considered downtown.
If you want to avoid a series of (escalating) problems, it’s important that you pay your rent on time. Every month. First and foremost, the lease you signed is a legally binding contract.

The Upper East Side, or UES, is actually composed of several sub-neighborhoods, including Yorkville, Carnegie Hill, Gracie Point, Lenox Hill and, believe it or not, Roosevelt Island.

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.
