  1. Please ✋ STOP saying affordable housing. This mixed housing isn’t affordable and many of don’t or won’t qualify & you & the community board knows this.

    It’s disappointing, disheartening, dishonest. I’m was life long Bedford Stuyvesant resident who worked,served my community,and went to church there. My home of 10yrs had a lien yet was sold in a short sale. We were told to vacate to fix & it was sold & it wasn’t affordable nor suitable after a 4 bedroom went to a 1 bedroom for over$2,000 & I paid $1700 for 10 yrs. It was a scam. My family of 5 was displaced & now I can no longer afford to move back & I’m living with disabilities that were made worse by moving 5 times in 4yrs. I need help & housing yet again lease is expiring soon. Help me & my now family of 2 come back to our community.

  2. Hey my name is Kevin Davila. Im interested for a Studio apartment. I receive SSI and a Voucher of $1047 nonthly and i pay the remaining balance. I got it from the government which pays for 5yrs. I could move in asap i am also in school and work for Djing and a chef. Please accept my income thank you stay safe covid19 pandemic is crazy. Hope all is great god bless

    • I have been looking for affordable housing for over six years. Due to covid-19 last year, I was furloughed and had to go on unemployment from April 1 to July 19. Will I still be eligible to rent a one bedroom? If not, I will take a studio for the time being. Also, I am considering to adopt a shelter pet, so I need to know if it is okay to do so

  3. I need STUDIO
