In Bushwick it’s not terribly unusual to be a little bonkers in your professional presentation–see any of the nutso promo videos put out by the great Roberta’s… or, better yet, go to their awesome Bushwick Block Party on July 27. But even in a neighborhood where the preferred aesthetic is graffiti, glitchy gifs and 8-bit clip art, the brand new “Pop-Asian” restaurant King Noodle stands out for the sheer wacko-ness of its design. Which, by the way, I think is a good thing. Especially when your kitchen can turn out food as lively and satisfying as you’ll find here. (more…)
At first glance it seemed like one of those silly, obvious-trend pieces for which the New York Times has become increasingly famous. Basically: New York City is loud (and the NY Times is ON IT). But you know what? The city IS loud. And despite some noteworthy aural improvements, quality-of-life-wise (remember when everyone first got car alarms, and they used to go off ALL THE TIME? Or when the door between subway cars stayed open for your entire ride because that hook thing wouldn’t latch and it was like listening to a jackhammer all the way home?), it seems to only be getting more noisy every year. Forget the promised jet packs… where are our whisper-quiet jet packs?!? (more…)
If you were to pick one object that embodies life here in New York City, what would it be? Not monuments like the Empire State Building surely, or Yankee Stadium, Rockefeller Center, the Brooklyn Bridge… those and a hundred other icons may be emblematic at postcard-y level, but they also really belong to the world. No what I’m talking about are the things that have become a part of OUR daily landscape; the humble objects that, for true New Yorkers (whether life-long or newly-arrived), can instantly evoke day-to-day living here in the big town.

Last summer(ish) in Brooklyn, a fresh and inventive sandwich shop sprouted in the back of a popular Franklin Avenue cocktail bar, The Crown Inn. Called Black Tree and run by Brooklynites Sandy Hall and Macnair “Mac” Sillick, the space-within-a-space was an instant hit with drinkers, both for its locally-sourced, high-quality ingredients as well as the hefty size of the sandwiches themselves, especially considering the cheap-eats prices. If you’re a resident of Crown Heights, or just like to go out drinking in interesting new places, Crown Inn/Black Tree is definitely worth putting on your list. (more…)
The area along Long Island City’s waterfront started to really take off as a residential neighborhood just five or so years ago and, really, it hasn’t slowed down since. A nice mixture of spanking new, amenities-laden development, plus plenty of historic industrial character, plus a burgeoning food and nightlife scene, AND plenty of local cultural options, of both the grass roots as well as the major-museum-backed variety, LIC has quickly turned into one of the city’s most desireable communities. And things are about to change around here even more. (more…)
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.
