It seems almost like a spoof, considering that “lack of space” is the most common topic for grumbling about NYC rental apartments, but according to a just-released study by the non-profit Citizens Housing and Planning Council, the problem is real: there’s a severe shortage of rental apartments in New York City for people who can [...]

Fewer New Yorkers are living by themselves now than in more than a decade, which means more of an emphasis on finding the best roommate for your situation.

New York University’s Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy is one of the great repositories of information about the way we physically live, today in New York City.
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.
