Manhattan and Brooklyn, and the changes going on everywhere around those boroughs (seemingly all the time) take up most of my energy on this blog.

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 [...]
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.

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.

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.
