Brooklyn and Manhattan residents know that the NYC Parks Department, often with help from privately-funded non-profits, have done a terrific job in the past decade or so renovating, redesigning and even creating parks in many of our formerly-forlorn public spaces. Madison Square Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Hudson River Park, Transmitter Park, the High Line, the [...]

The unfathomably super-rich don’t always plunk down $90 million for a trophy pied-a-terre–a duplex, penthouse pied-a-terre, no less–in One57, the soaring, still-under-construction midtown condo that will soon be one of the tallest residential buildings on the continent. Who cares if they may only actually stay in their spectacular sky-mansion a few weeks a year; the [...]
Whoa. Just: whoa. First of all, Houston Hall, owned by Jon Bloostein of Heartland Brewery and just opened on the borderlands between the West Village, Soho, and Hudson Square, is freaking enormous. As in, one of the largest single rooms you’re likely to enter this year, with 5,000 square feet of open space made [...]
Here’s another first for Brooklyn residents in Williamsburg, East Williamsburg, Bushwick, Greenpoint, Bed Stuy: Bklyn Beast, the city’s first and only training center for those urban acrobatics/sports of Parkour, Capoeira, and Breaking.

No fee rental apartments in Chelsea have been among the most coveted properties in Manhattan for over a decade now. No surprise, really: families, young professionals, and creative types of all kinds love the community’s rather unique combination of nightlife (there are scads of first-rate neighborhood restaurants here), its opportunities for both recreation and relaxation [...]
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.
