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. True, there are many NYC apartment buildings in need of repairs six months after the superstorm, and many more are still using exterior, “temporary” generators for their power. Also, the A train to Rockaway [...]
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. The menu is filled with crazy, kitchen-sink concoctions (several include crushed Fritos; most have at least two kinds of sauce) called things like the “Pablo Escobar” and the [...]
I recently visited John Kessler’s newest installation, The Web, at the Swiss Institute in Soho. If this is your kind of art, I urge you to make a visit.

The Whole Foods Bowery / Smorgasburg partnership has already brought some first-rate cheap eats to the second floor of that sprawling store, with Milk Truck’s quality grilled cheeses and Mighty Quinn’s sublime barbecue among the highlights since the program’s launch last fall.

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.
