A few times every summer I get a total craving for exactly the sort of meal they offer at Littleneck, a friendly, clam shack sort of place in the somewhat unlikely (though rapidly changing) post-industrial neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn. It’s usually after a day at the beach–which for me usually means a day at the [...]

The Brooklyn rental market continue to set records, both in terms of rental prices that, on average, have never been higher (up 10% in 2010, and another 7% last year), as well as for the sheer number of new construction and development that’s been pouring into the market of late.
I finally completed my rounds of New York City’s great summertime outdoor fairs, food festivals, and fleas–a list that would include the Brooklyn Flea Markets (called Brooklyn Flea for short) of both Williamsburg and Fort Greene; the all-food flea offshoot, the Williamsburg Smorgasburg, the Hester Street Fair on the Lower East Side, the Dekalb Market [...]
Ask San Franciscans about their favorite restaurants and they will not shut up about Danny Bowien’s Mission Chinese Food, the totally dive-y, totally delicious Chinese spot that not only packs in the faithful night after night after night (except Wednesdays! because they’re closed), diners rapturous about the explosive flavors, the fresh ingredients, the love that [...]
Another month, another record for Manhattan rental apartments, and not in a good way for would-be Manhattan renters.

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.
