Manhattan's Largest Source of No Broker Fee Apartments!
Manhattan Apartments & Manhattan Neighborhood Information for Renters
A Great Manhattan Apartment Is the Holy Grail for NYC Renters
The excitement starts building when you search online for "manhattan apartments" or "apartments for rent manhattan". Up come wonderful apartments. Exciting streets. The faces of young people ready to make their marks in the biggest apple of them all - Manhattan. The dreams start building and the excitement becomes real! Until you see the fine print - "brokers commission is 15% of the first year's rent".
You will never see those dreaded words working with RentDirectNewYork.com. That's because we were the original pioneer in No Fee Manhattan apartments for rent. Long before Google was born, we were announcing to the world, "Yes! you can find wonderful apartments for rent in Manhattan - without a broker's fee!", and we invited everyone to search our listings.
Now, almost 20 years later, we have helped thousands of renters find wonderful no fee Manhattan rentals. Starting with the finest inventory of Upper East Side apartments obtained directly from owners and managing agents, we've been knocking on doors for almost 20 years and inviting owners of Upper East Side apartments to discover the advantages of directly meeting and working with renters who want their apartments.
Then RentDirectNewYork.com branched out to scour the world of Upper West Side apartments - or as the folks in that part of Manhattan liked to say, "The Upper Best Side". We saw incredible changes happening to the world of Upper West Side apartment rentals. We saw the neighborhood literally expand, from the once imaginary border on West 86th Street to West 96th Street, and then push beyond, up to the neighborhood of Columbia University and beyond. The Upper West Side is vibrant, exciting, and... well, it's were Seinfeld was taped all those years ago.
Having lived for years in Greenwich Village, we knew the market for Village apartments for rent was always red hot, if for no other reason than there are simply very few Village rental apartment buildings that are over 6 floors! It's charm is due to being a low-rise neighborhood with lots of trees. The great old prewar apartments on Fifth Avenue had long been converted to co-ops and all the new West Village apartments were condos. So we picked and chose the best of the Village rental apartments. We know that some of you wanted to live in brownstones, and some of you wanted converted loft buildings. And we found a choice selection of Village rentals that were traditional walkup apartments.
But the world of apartments for rent in Manhattan means always finding the 'next new thing'. Over the past 20 years, we've found lots of old Manhattan apartment neighborhoods becoming new again. Take Gramercy Park and Murray Hill. Great old places to live if you wanted to be in Manhattan, but also wanted a bit of peace and quiet. Umm... have you taken a walk on Park Avenue South in the past few years on a Friday night? The crowds and mobs at the best restaurants are amazing. And so are the martini's by the way.
These days, Gramercy Park apartments rentals are hard to come by, but we get them. And of course, with RentDirectNewYork.com, they are always 100% no fee - Guaranteed. Murray Hill apartments have some new buildings to fill our the selections. Come to RDNY.com and search our Murray Hill apartments.
But if you're really searching for the next new Manhattan rental apartment neighborhood - look uptown. I can't say enough good things about the apartments in Inwood. Beautiful older prewar buildings now being renovated and rented at reasonable prices. This is the place for family-sized rental apartments. But it's not just the Inwood apartments that I love, it's Inwood itself. If you haven't been to Inwood Park, you've missed a real Manhattan treat. You can still find Indian arrow heads there!
And to really discover GREAT apartments at affordable rents, go a little South of Inwood to Fort Washington, where the prewar apartments on Riverside Drive face the most beautiful park in New York. On your way there, stop by to explore 12th century monastery, The Cloisters, in Hudson Heights, where apartments are great. (Trivia question: How do you get a 12th Century Monastery in New York (which wasn't found by Europeans until the 16th century?) The answer: stone by stone. Yup, the original John D. Rockefeller brought it over from France, stone by stone and reassembled it here.)
Yes, RentDirectNewYork.com's success at finding great no fee NYC apartments directly from owners and managing agents was the reason so many rental agents started subscribing to RDNY.com - and using the very same information to rent apartments to their clients while charging them full fees!
In response, we created a no fee NYC apartment rental information service for the brokerage community, Acmelistings.com. Today, over 500 Manhattan brokers and agents use Acmelistings.com to supplement their inventory of available rental apartments to rent to their prospects. That is why we can honestly say, " With RentDirectNewYork.com, you get the same information brokers have - but without having to pay the broker's fee!".
