I’m a big fan of Governors Island, that 172-acre park that sits just a quick, free ferry ride away from downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn’s Pier 6. For most of my life (and for more than 150 years before then) the place functioned as an active military base, for the US Navy and then the Coast [...]
Category: Things to Do in NYC & Beyond
Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a neighborhood that already enjoys an embarrassment of food- nightlife-music- shopping- oddball-art-related riches, just added a whole bunch of NEW really cool things to do. That’s because last week marked the opening of the newly-christened Havemeyer Park, formerly known as the empty lot across from the beautiful, soon-to-be-demolished Domino Sugar Factory complex on [...]
If you think it sounds cool and interesting to roam around and explore a rusty old ship from the early 1930s well, you’d be right. It IS fun and interesting, as I discovered for the first time last week aboard the Lilac, which was once a working, steam-powered Lighthouse Tender–those were ships that “carried supplies [...]
If you were to pick one object that embodies life here in New York City, what would it be?

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.
