As East Village rental apartments get more and more luxurious and family-friendly–even those all the way over in the once no-go zones of Alphabet City, near Avenues C and D–it seems like a good time to honor that neighborhood’s rapidly receding past as the gritty domain of anarchists and activists, punks and squatters.

This week Brian gives us the history of Admiral’s Row at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, along with an update on it’s current condition.
Last week Brian, gave us some background on the Hudson River Park’s origins. This week, he gives us the history of the lesser known (except by locals), East River Park, which is just finishing an $84 million renovation.

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.
