The heart of historic Greenwich Village finally gets the world-class coffee shop it deserves. True, there’s no shortage of fine caffeine-fueled establishments both to the east and west (and north and south; NYC has truly become a great coffee town), a long list that would include Joe the Art of Coffee, Prodigy, Everyman Espresso, Roasting [...]
Fact: New Yorkers love to be right about things, and we’re maybe especially passionate about where you can get the best ________. It doesn’t really matter what fills in the blank. Martini, everything bagel, grandma slice, salad bar, cheeseburger, paella, cappuccino, chocolate chip cookie… the list of argument-inciters is almost literally endless. And that’s just [...]
Living in Greenpoint has recently become a whole lot more restaurant-y.

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.
