There no shortage of fun, food-filled fairs and fleas in New York City these days, from the great Brooklyn Fleas of Williamsburg and Fort Greene (as well as their food-only spin-off, Smorgasburg); to the shipping container “mall” in Downtown Brooklyn, the DeKalb Market; to the New Amsterdam Market, Sundays at the South Street Seaport.
The New York Times had a piece a few weeks ago titled “How Many People Can Manhattan Hold” that keeps popping into my thoughts as I go about my day, exploring New York City rental apartments and, more specifically, Manhattan neighborhoods: shiny and new, tired and creaky, everything in between.
Is Meatball Obsession an example of too much of a good thing?

The transformation of certain stretches of the Manhattan East River Waterfront from forbidding industrial dumping ground into easily accessible, pretty, and fun spaces got a step closer to reality last week, with a pair of announcements that will directly affect–and, one hopes, improve–the quality of life in certain Manhattan rental apartment neighborhoods.
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.
