Dinosaur Bar-B-Que routinely finds its way onto a fair number of Best NYC BBQ lists, but though the massive Harlem restaurant has been open since 2005, tales of long lines and epic waits always kept me away. The Dino BBQ family keeps growing however, so when a new outpost opened on a semi-sleepy stretch of [...]
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.

There’s no slowing down the demand, the development, nor–most record-breaklingly–the price of Brooklyn rental apartments these days.

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.
