Summer in NYC is traditionally the busiest time of year for renting apartments. Starting in May, new college graduates from across the country, job offers in hand, flood the city, along with a substantial number of current students looking for housing for the upcoming school year. This is exacerbated by the fact that recent transplants [...]
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 [...]
A milestone was passed in the second quarter of this year, but it’s not a happy one for New York City rental apartment seekers: the average rent in this great, glorious city of ours surpassed the $3,000-a-month mark. Yup, a month. In fact, it’s $3,017, if you want to be precise. Don’t be dismayed if [...]
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 [...]
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.

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.
