      This is a joke. May you reap the hate you sow. You come into these communities trying to push out individuals who lived there for years. The very neighborhood you cursed as unredeemable. For everyone who thinks they are on top, remember there is someone greater than you. And they can be as cunning as you and will also squash you. That’s how this world works.

  22. How can you call this affordable housing if the income is around 80 thousand dollars to qualify. This is a bulling for hard workers who can’t fit this income.

  23. The devil comes only to rob steal and destroy. Affordable housing my foot. The devil is a liar! (Seriously)

  24. How can I get and the lottery me and my mom

    • I hope that all those comments will go in the ears of the developers. You should be concerned that the majority of the people are not fooled by the affordable housing scam developers have came up with. It is just a joke, a cover up.
      This is East Flatbush the niche for affordable income which are $35,$40 000,$45 000 and 50,000. What studies have you done to decide that affordable income on East Flatbush starts at $75,000. That is not the income of people in East Flatbush.And you know it. Developers have continued teasing, taunting people with the affordable housing scam knowing that the income requirements is way out of the neighborhood reach; you continue pushing people out of their building and the neighborhood. Enough. You want to have only high level income people in your building that s fine, that’s your building
      But please stop the affordable housing. affor6 income, housing lottery scam

  25. I’m very interested in becoming a resident in your property. I am a health care worker interested in either a studio or one bedroom. I am currently living in an illegal basement . Needs to move on up but it’s so difficult to find something legal that I can afford.
    Thx you for your time.

  26. Well Well am hoping I could get a studio or a one bedroom please am working i could pay $900 so please give me a chance thanks

  27. Bloody hell! Those who set these “affordable” rents must be livelin in a parallel universe. You can find actual affordable apartments only in Manhattan because the community boards there are strong and demand that developers and the City play by the rules.
