Brooklyn and Manhattan residents know that the NYC Parks Department, often with help from privately-funded non-profits, have done a terrific job in the past decade or so renovating, redesigning and even creating parks in many of our formerly-forlorn public spaces.

Tagged: Clinton / Hell’s Kitchen
What is one of the things that people love about trendy neighborhoods like the East Village, Lower East Side, Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen / Clinton? Unlike some slightly more, shall we say, barren (boring?) neighborhoods in Manhattan, there are always plenty of solid options for food and fun right near your home.
For decades Manhattan turned its back on the Hudson River: access was limited and, frankly, mostly decrepit; development was minimal (with a few notable exceptions, especially downtown, and especially Battery Park City) with real estate barons preferring to grow their goods towards the center of our island.
“Downtown” NYC apartments actually span a number of neighborhoods, from the Village (West Village, Greenwich Village, East Village) all the way down to FiDi. Basically, anything below 14th Street is considered downtown.
Manhattan rental apartment seekers have been keenly watching the news that keeps coming from the Far West Side (aka Hudson Yards), that stretch of real estate including parts of Chelsea and Clinton / Hell’s Kitchen, to the west of 9th Avenue, that developers have had their eyes on of late.
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.
