Feeling restless? Looking to start an argument with your fellow Brooklyn residents, especially those of the bookish bent, of which there are legions? It’s easy. State with enthusiastic authority that So-and-so Bookstore is the best in the borough. “WHAT?!” will be the reaction. “Sure, So-and-so’s not bad, but SO-AND-SO’s got a much better selection, and [...]
Do you like mini-doughnuts? Then Doughnuttery may be just for you. No question, Chelsea Market is one of New York City’s great revitalization success stories of the past decade.

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.
