Living in Greenpoint has recently become a whole lot more restaurant-y. Just in the past month three new hype-worthy spots have opened up down around Transmitter Park (now with an awesome new pier!), including Alameda, a terrific-looking bar on Franklin Street, with food via a couple of Brooklyn Star vets; River Styx, on Greenpoint Avenue, [...]
Is fried chicken the perfect food? It’s fast and cheap. It’s fun to eat, familiar and satisfying. Lots of people make it well. And it usually comes with excellent sides. So: possibly perfect? Either way, there has been an explosion of southern-style joints opening all over this great city of late, so I decided to [...]
We’re heading into some of the hottest months of the year for the NYC rental apartment market (figuratively and literally), as recent college graduates from all over planet try their hand at life in the best city in the world.

We’ve known for a while that the days are numbered for Long Island City’s fantastic street-art mecca, 5Pointz.

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.
