If you’re looking for an Upper East Side rental apartment–and not in the “fancier” precincts along Fifth, Madison, or Park Avenues; or in Carnegie Hill, or Gracie Point, but in the more regular-people part of the neighborhood, between, say, Third and First Avenues, and 68th and 96th Streets–it’s always a good idea to get a [...]

What is one of the things that people love about trendy neighborhoods like the East Village, Lower East Side, Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen / Clinton?

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.
