If you’ve been out there looking for a NYC rental apartment, you know it’s tough right now: record-high rents, low vacancy rates, and so, for obvious reasons, few landlord concessions. And I’m not just talking Manhattan! Certain areas of Brooklyn (Williamsburg, DUMBO, Park Slope) and even Queens (Long Island City) can now be as pricey [...]

If you’re new to the NYC rental apartment hunt, don’t worry: EVERYONE thinks it’s overwhelming. The city is huge, for one thing, and there are about a dozen different neighborhoods that would be “perfect” for each one of us, though your dozen could be different from mine, which is likely to be different from that [...]
The Brooklyn rental market continue to set records, both in terms of rental prices that, on average, have never been higher (up 10% in 2010, and another 7% last year), as well as for the sheer number of new construction and development that’s been pouring into the market of late.
Another month, another record for Manhattan rental apartments, and not in a good way for would-be Manhattan renters.

The NYC rental apartment market has never seen such high prices and low vacancy rates as we’re living through right now.

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.
