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 [...]

As has been widely reported–and, as anyone searching for a Brooklyn rental apartment already knows–the cost of renting in the great Borough of Kings went through the roof in 2012. In fact, in such sought-after places as Williamsburg and DUMBO, mean rental prices actually passed most of Manhattan neighborhoods. Just to throw out a couple [...]
Easy commutes, beautiful old brownstones, a vibrant culture and history, the lure of reasonable rents: little wonder that both West and East Harlem have been near the top of everyone’s “next happening” NYC neighborhood list for the past decade or so. And though both communities have seen a welcome infusion of first-rate neighborhood restaurants, cafes, [...]
Two concurrent trends, seeming in opposition to each other, are running through the Manhattan rental apartment market right now.

No fee rental apartments in Chelsea have been among the most coveted properties in Manhattan for over a decade now. No surprise, really: families, young professionals, and creative types of all kinds love the community’s rather unique combination of nightlife (there are scads of first-rate neighborhood restaurants here), its opportunities for both recreation and relaxation [...]
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.
