First, before I get to the map of celebrity homes, a word of warning: if you’re new in town, real New Yorkers do NOT acknowledge celebrities, whether you spot them on the streets, in the supermarket, at the playground, at your children’s school, eating out in your favorite restaurant, wherever.
A pair of Chelsea landmarks could be in for a major overhaul. And not necessarily in a good way, according to some residents. Chelsea apartment dwellars can go on and on about the things they love about their neighborhood.
And now, some choice amusements and entertainments for New York City rental apartment seekers: a quick look at my favorite posts from Curbed’s Renters Week 2011. Curbed is always a pleasure–well-informed and informative, lively and amusing–but they really seemed to enjoy their first-ever Renters Week, peppering their usual array of interesting real estate posts with [...]
Leading real estate blog Curbed ended their “Renters Week 2011″ with a test drive of 6 NYC rental websites, called The Masochist’s Guide to Test Driving Six Rental Websites. Guess who came out with the highest score? Urban Edge, of course!
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.
