Streeteasy.com -- advanced search tools including searching by commute time.
UrbanEdgeNY.com -- no fee apartment listings directly from landlords.
InsideDigs -- connects you to the current apartment occupants of units up for rent.
NYBits.com -- aggregates units for rent from other sites.
NakedApartments.com -- landlords/brokers pay monthly fee, but renters do not pay to search. Allows for reviews of brokers.
