A nice mixture of spanking new, amenities-laden development, plus plenty of historic industrial character, plus a burgeoning food and nightlife scene, AND plenty of local cultural [...]

Manhattan and Brooklyn, and the changes going on everywhere around those boroughs (seemingly all the time) take up most of my energy on this blog. But Queens is the city’s largest borough, size-wise, it’s second only to Brooklyn in terms of population, AND there have been at least three mega-scale developments (or possible developments) making [...]
We’ve known for a while that the days are numbered for Long Island City’s fantastic street-art mecca, 5Pointz. Called the “Aerosol Art Center” by current curator Meres One, this massive old warehouse has for some 20 years now been covered in a constantly-changing collection of pieces by the world’s best graffiti artists.

Long Island City rental apartment residents have seen the Clocktower building a million times, one of those geographic landmarks you use almost without thinking when you’re in the Court Square part of the neighborhood.

I was a huge fan of M. Wells, the short-lived, much-mourned Long Island City diner from Chef Hugue Dufour (late of Montreal and the great Au Pied de Cochon) and his partner Sarah Obraitis.

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.
