Easy commutes, beautiful old brownstones, a vibrant culture and history, the lure of reasonable rents: little wonder that both West and East Harlem have been near the top of everyone’s “next happening” NYC neighborhood list for the past decade or so.

Talk to 5 different people, and you may get 5 different opinions on living in Harlem. However, most of the negative opinions probably come from people who have never been to Harlem, or haven’t been there in quite some time.

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.
