Manhattan and Brooklyn, and the changes going on everywhere around those boroughs (seemingly all the time) take up most of my energy on this blog. But Queens is the city’s largest borough, size-wise, it’s second only to Brooklyn in terms of population, AND there have been at least three mega-scale developments (or possible developments) making [...]

Some feared that Hurricane Sandy would stifle the waterfront dreams of city planners and private development companies. They needn’t have worried. True, there are many NYC apartment buildings in need of repairs six months after the superstorm, and many more are still using exterior, “temporary” generators for their power. Also, the A train to Rockaway [...]
After Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc and disaster all over the city’s waterfront areas–or, at least, all over the lower-lying areas; this is, after all, a city in which four of the five boroughs are islands, so plenty of waterfront property is safely out of harm’s way–there was some talk about slowing down, or rethinking, a [...]
The transformation of certain stretches of the Manhattan East River Waterfront from forbidding industrial dumping ground into easily accessible, pretty, and fun spaces got a step closer to reality last week, with a pair of announcements that will directly affect–and, one hopes, improve–the quality of life in certain Manhattan rental apartment neighborhoods.

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.
