If you’re dreaming of finding a rental apartment anywhere near Washington Square Park–and, especially, if you’re planning on sticking around for awhile–you should know this: that whole area, from the park to Houston street, is going to change, thanks to NYU 2031, aka The Sexton Plan.
Opponents of the NYU expansion plans have won round one. To Greenwich Village residents: the neighborhood as you know it (and, one hopes, love it) appears NOT to be heading toward complete takeover by New York University’s monstrous, multiple-building, two-MILLION-square-feet construction project, at least for the moment.

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.
