You might remember last month when we told you about the 200 units of affordable housing coming to Downtown Brooklyn as part of the City Point project. Or maybe you don’t, a month is a long time and your brain melted in the heat. Anyway, they’ll be open to welcome you in to your affordable home any day now, so it means that the application process for these apartments has begun. Even if you hate filling out forms, we think you should pay attention here, because for $651/month studios and $655 2-bedrooms, most of us would probably fill out a Mount Everest made of forms.
The full breakdown of the apartments can be found here, but needless to say, these are some dang affordable apartments that you can fight with the rest of the proletariat population for. 13 $651/month studios (and one $500/month one)! 15 $699/month 1-bedrooms! 14 $849/month 2-bedrooms! Keep in mind, those are just a few of the options in the $18,000 – $30,000/year income range. There are also quite a few apartments in what passes for middle class in crazy boomtown New York, if you’ve managed to put together a family making a combined $140,000/year at most. Want one? Apply today.
The usual caveats to this apply, like how 50% of the units are being set aside for Community Board 2 residents, and you’ll have to actually fill out your application correctly and have decent credit and also have the luck to win a lottery that close to 100,000 people will probably apply for. Not that we’re trying to make you discouraged and not apply for an apartment because we want one. We wouldn’t do that to you, we’re your pals!
