I’m a big fan of Governors Island, that 172-acre park that sits just a quick, free ferry ride away from downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn’s Pier 6. For most of my life (and for more than 150 years before then) the place functioned as an active military base, for the US Navy and then the Coast [...]
Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a neighborhood that already enjoys an embarrassment of food- nightlife-music- shopping- oddball-art-related riches, just added a whole bunch of NEW really cool things to do. That’s because last week marked the opening of the newly-christened Havemeyer Park, formerly known as the empty lot across from the beautiful, soon-to-be-demolished Domino Sugar Factory complex on [...]
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 [...]
Phone battery dead (again)? Need a quick 10% (or more) to send those texts/read those emails/browse those tumblrs? This summer, if you’re in one of a dozen NYC parks located in all five boroughs, the excellent new Street Charge stations have got you covered. Street Charge is a marketing program which we all can get [...]
Any long-time NYC resident will tell you that one of the most welcome changes in this great town of ours over the past decade or so has been the widespread revitalization of city’s parks and public plazas.

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.
