If you think it sounds cool and interesting to roam around and explore a rusty old ship from the early 1930s well, you’d be right. It IS fun and interesting, as I discovered for the first time last week aboard the Lilac, which was once a working, steam-powered Lighthouse Tender–those were ships that “carried supplies [...]

Fact: New Yorkers love to be right about things, and we’re maybe especially passionate about where you can get the best ________. It doesn’t really matter what fills in the blank. Martini, everything bagel, grandma slice, salad bar, cheeseburger, paella, cappuccino, chocolate chip cookie… the list of argument-inciters is almost literally endless. And that’s just [...]
Manhattan’s Lower East Side just won’t stand still. Even by New York City standards, a town where constant change has always been our core characteristic, LES apartment residents have witnessed a wild ride over the past decade or so, as long-established businesses are shuttered and replaced (for better or worse), and vacant spaces developed into [...]
Some feared that Hurricane Sandy would stifle the waterfront dreams of city planners and private development companies. They needn’t have worried.

At first glance (and second… and third…), the newish Los Perros Locos, specializing in Colombian hot dogs, looks like just another drunk-food joint, all you need to know, done.

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.
