A couple of different posts recently on two of my favorite real estate websites–namely, Curbed and Brick Underground–reminded me how difficult, even discouraging, the process of finding that perfect new home can seem when approached from afar, but also how it all usually works out for the vast majority of NYC rental apartment seekers.

All up and down the East River there are plans afoot for making the waterfront as beautiful and as accessible for residents of Manhattan’s east side as west side residents have been enjoying these past years since the completion of the Hudson River Park.
It’s not a new idea, making Manhattan rental apartment buildings–or, really, any kind of building at all–more energy efficient and economical simply by painting the roof white.

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.
