A lot of times in this real-estate-crazy town you hear about a neighborhood, or even micro-neighborhood, that’s a sure-fire “next big thing.” New residential towers are coming, the hipsters say, along with new restaurants, new stores and services… everything about this unloved/undiscovered community’s about to explode. And then, often as not, nothing really happens, and [...]
Some NYC neighborhoods seem to pop on and drop off the “Next Happening NYC Neighborhood” list with frustrating frequency, as zoning plans change or the economy tanks or developers get distracted by the the next NEXT big thing. But the unlikely Brooklyn community of Gowanus seems to be a keeper. Up until a couple of [...]
There’s no slowing down the demand, the development, nor–most record-breaklingly–the price of Brooklyn rental apartments these days. According to the May Brooklyn rental apartment report released by MNS recently, overall rents were up, on average, a head-spinning 10% from last year… and the average cost of a Park Slope rental apartment rose an astounding 40%.

A few times every summer I get a total craving for exactly the sort of meal they offer at Littleneck, a friendly, clam shack sort of place in the somewhat unlikely (though rapidly changing) post-industrial neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn.

It wasn’t so long ago that the Brooklyn neighborhood of Gowanus had many of New York City’s (and the country’s) biggest developers chomping at the bit, throwing money around, planning huge residential projects that would transform the area’s post-industrial landscape.

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.
