The area along Long Island City’s waterfront started to really take off as a residential neighborhood just five or so years ago and, really, it hasn’t slowed down since. 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 [...]
The Bruce High Quality Foundation is an anonymous collective–all members seem to be named Bruce, coincidentally–with a made-up past (their fictitious founder, Bruce High Quality, died on the attacks of September 11) and a mischievous sense of humor about creating public art spectacles.

Culturally savvy Upper West and Upper East Side residents know how to take advantage of the many amazing exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Because the Met’s admission price is always suggested, the best way to enjoy this massive, world-class wonderland of art and history is to pop in for about an hour, pay [...]
My advice to any NYC rental apartment resident looking to explore the world-famous Chelsea gallery district is always the same: 1. Treat it like a ten-block-long museum, and go as often as you can.

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.
