  1. That reception desk…?

  2. “three studios with a $2,523 monthly rent” how is that considered affordable housing…

    • Indeed. Federal criteria is 30% of income is considered affordable. The minimum income of $86.5K would be paying more than 30% in what’s called “affordable” housing.

  3. I agree how in the world is that considered affordable housing ????
    This should be called ” income based ”
    not “affordable housing ”
    All the politicians and the developers bulls#% everybody wihen they say “affordable housing” what a joke!

  4. 3 studios for $2523. ??

    Yea. Okay. This is affordable housing? Wtf. Totally ridiculous. And now with covid, a lot of these affordable housing units are standing empty.

  6. I need affordable housing
    Only gets $800.00. From SSI I am Disabled with Multiple Sclerosis ( MS )

  7. Only to the Yimby folks (landlords laughing all the way to the bank with their tax abatements for their “affordable” housing). Looking forward to new leadership in NYC to revert back to what “affordable” really means.

  8. This isn’t affordable housing living in a city where we pay dearly for transit, food costs, etc the basics!

  9. “Affordable” is a relative term to the rest of the population projected to live here. What, did you think you’d get an apartment for under a grand a month? Be real!

    Affordable for whom Michael Dell, from Dell computers! Bill Gates son! I’ve had it with New York, all you need is a dollar and a green card!!!! From a New York City retired employee of 25 years I’m moving!

    $2500 rent for a studio is NOT affordable for anyone earning 85k to 100k. Who in the f comes up with these figures!? These high rents are out of control!!

  13. Thats supposed to be affordable.. yeah right..

  14. Affordable Housing is a myth

  15. I would like an apartment that I am able to pay a normal rent. I am a senior with social security and a pension from my job . When you mention affordable, affordable to who? Do you have any availability for someone like me? Thank you

  16. I’m a Senior, retired from Post Office. Live in LES. Looking for a Studio with lower rent.

  17. Affordable housing??? My son is a NY Fire Fighter & do not meet that income requirement!! rents are absolutely ridiculous! If these realtors need considered the average salary of the Ny population they wouldn’t be calling these apartments “affordable housing”. Let’s be real!

  18. Nice building but that ain’t affordable.

  19. More than $2,500 for a studio…no wonder people can’t save.

    If one needs affordable housing, how is it that the minimum incomes are so high ?

  21. A need a application for Luisortiz my phone 917 349 5195.

  22. Affordable to whom…?

  23. People from NY know that is less than anything else in the area! 3k a month?. Nyc, SF, Boston , Seattle , etc. Is for the rich. Better look for the projects on the East side or LES

    U need an application for 3bedrooms unit

  25. Affordable my foot, this is something I have yet to hear politicians speak about. House rent is ridiculously high and everyone who has a saving is moving south to stretch that dollar.

  27. I need a 1 bedroom, I live on SSDI im disabled, a widow n a son in college! I have a Section 8! How do I get into an apartment

  28. the owner is extending it’s 421a tax benefit. in exchange for the benefit, the owner is required to keep the existing 48 low income units affordable plus and add 12 middle income units. go to housing connect and find units that match your income levels.

  29. Most people in living in low income apartments are poor , how the F not everyone living in the Bronx and Brooklyn are doctors
