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.
Like to find a nice no-fee rental apartment in a hot neighborhood in Brooklyn? You’re not alone. Silly trend pieces (“Freegan Food Co-ops now a thing!” “Man-buns take over Williamsburg!”) and pockets of too-self-congratulatory residents aside, Brooklyn rental apartments, both to the north (e.g., Williamsburg) and the south (Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, et al) continue [...]
What’s that you say? You’ve never heard of Hudson Square in Manhattan? Take solace in the fact that you’re not alone. Hudson Square does exist, and it’s not a new made-up nabe… it’s been around for quite some time. It’s bounded by Houston Street (and the West Village) to the north, Sixth Avenue–some would argue [...]
Talk to 5 different people, and you may get 5 different opinions on living in Harlem.

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.
