We all have different, if overlapping, criteria for our ideal New York City community, and there are no shortage of good neighborhood portraits out there to help you find you way… including, of course, our own NYC Neighborhood Guide right here on Urban Edge. But recently I’ve seen two new, very specific ways of look [...]
Thanks to the nightmare of Sandy last fall, Rockaway Beach, the best subway beach in the city, was in danger of remaining inaccessible by rail all summer. Yes, there’s now the Rockabus option, which provides roundtrip, street-to-sand express bus service from three locations: Williamsburg, the East Village/Lower East Side, and Grand Army Plaza.

Manhattan and Brooklyn, and the changes going on everywhere around those boroughs (seemingly all the time) take up most of my energy on this blog.

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.
