Residents in the waterfront neighborhoods of DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, and the Columbia Waterfront Area have received nothing but good news of late regarding that great long stretch of neighborhood public space, Brooklyn Bridge Park. For decades a bustling industrial waterfront, then mostly neglected for decades more, the area we now call Brooklyn Bridge [...]
If you’re a Fort Greene resident, you probably already know about No. 7, a lively, welcoming restaurant/bar nestled behind the C train entrance on Greene Avenue. The menu’s interesting and appealing, the prices gentle, the crowd convivial and slightly more grown-up than other nearby places… in other words, No. 7′s a terrific neighborhood place for [...]
“Have you tried the chorizo?” It’s not the usual question I hear when approaching the counter of a new ice cream parlor, even in Williamsburg, where it’s always best to expect the unexpected.

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.
