Over the years we’ve heard the story countless times: a young couple or new-in-town professional answers an ad (it used to be on a flyer, posted on the street; now Craigslist and the like are the preferred trolling grounds), get shown a NYC rental apartment by a broker, love the place, hand over a security [...]
Tagged: Renting in NYC
We’ve been seeing statistics and charts all summer here at Urban Edge about how finding and signing a New York City rental apartment has become more and more a landlord-friendly undertaking. Manhattan rents are up, vacancies are down, and owners aren’t nearly as ready to hand out concessions as they were as recently as a [...]
It should come as no surprise that the most heavily-hyped NYC rental apartment building in recent memory, Frank Gehry’s soaring residential tower at 8 Spruce Street, continues to generate lots of press. After all, the immodestly named New York by Gehry was designed–right down to the doorknobs!–by arguably the planet’s most famous architect, and it [...]
It’s a seemingly inevitable part of NYC living: at some time or another, no matter how much we love our homes, residents of NYC rental apartments will wish we had more space.

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.
