Manhattan’s Lower East Side just won’t stand still. Even by New York City standards, a town where constant change has always been our core characteristic, LES apartment residents have witnessed a wild ride over the past decade or so, as long-established businesses are shuttered and replaced (for better or worse), and vacant spaces developed into [...]
Category: Real Estate Trends & News
Tracts of unused (or underused) Manhattan real estate have become increasingly rare in the past decade or so, and development-fever, which had slowed down for a bit in the recessionary years of late aughts, is revving up again. With a vengeance. The story plays out all over town–especially across the East River, in Brooklyn and [...]
Tired of hearing about the “next hot kind of undiscovered Brooklyn neighborhood”? Not me. Not with last week’s first quarter rental market report coming in, telling us that rents just keep getting higher in the fantastic Borough of Kings. In fact, Brooklyn rents overall were 11.3 percent higher than last year at this time, and [...]
A lot of times in this real-estate-crazy town you hear about a neighborhood, or even micro-neighborhood, that’s a sure-fire “next big thing.” New residential towers are coming, the hipsters say, along with new restaurants, new stores and services… everything about this unloved/undiscovered community’s about to explode. And then, often as not, nothing really happens, and [...]
After Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc and disaster all over the city’s waterfront areas–or, at least, all over the lower-lying areas; this is, after all, a city in which four of the five boroughs are islands, so plenty of waterfront property is safely out of harm’s way–there was some talk about slowing down, or rethinking, a [...]
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.
