Full disclosure: in my 30+ years of living in Manhattan and Brooklyn rental apartments, I have never had a doorman.

Apartment pests: no matter how perfect your dream Manhattan or Brooklyn rental apartment, at some point during your years or decades or lifetime in this amazing city it’s likely you will have to deal with undesirable, unwanted neighbors–or, even more unfortunate, unwanted housemates–whether of the animal, insect, or human variety.

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.
