New York City may be a great place to live, but it’s one major drawback is the high cost of housing. Until readily available (and totally affordable) micro-apartments become a reality–or until the world decides that every job deserves banker-sized bonuses–we all have to figure out ways to live in this beautiful, thrilling city without [...]
Long Island City rental apartment residents have seen the Clocktower building a million times, one of those geographic landmarks you use almost without thinking when you’re in the Court Square part of the neighborhood. And though the once-mighty Bank Of America headquarters–built in 1927 (the tallest building in Queens!), abandoned in 1980s, overshadowed by the [...]
I was a huge fan of M. Wells, the short-lived, much-mourned Long Island City diner from Chef Hugue Dufour (late of Montreal and the great Au Pied de Cochon) and his partner Sarah Obraitis.

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.
