Last summer(ish) in Brooklyn, a fresh and inventive sandwich shop sprouted in the back of a popular Franklin Avenue cocktail bar, The Crown Inn. Called Black Tree and run by Brooklynites Sandy Hall and Macnair “Mac” Sillick, the space-within-a-space was an instant hit with drinkers, both for its locally-sourced, high-quality ingredients as well as the [...]

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.
