    for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $68,915 to $192,400.

    This building was never meant for low income people.The way things have change could mean they will have to lower the rent.

    Does this place take section 8

  11. Totally Ridiculous
    How is this low income
    Will anything be accessible for people on a low income; retired on social security

  12. What a joke. 75 “affordable” apartments? This building should have been 50-50 market affordable. This is why we’ll never be able to fix this city

  13. It’s unfathomable that the city allowed a tower so humongous to be placed in a predominantly lower and middle income neighborhood. And yet again, the city continues to prove that their Housing New York program is a farce that’s built more for a ideal populace that doesn’t exist than for rent-burdened and homeless people who are struggling to find housing now.

    This is luxury public housing. A person making 30% above the AMI doesn’t need the government’s help in getting an apartment. They could probably afford to buy a house.

  14. My disabled mother with a monthly income below the median income would not qualify for these units. I guess she will have no choice but to live in the rat infested building she lives in cutrently. Please build affordable housing for the disabled people with low income

  15. The absurdity of these exorbitant so-called affordable apartments, are misleading and condescending.

  16. Interested

  17. These rents are quite high to live in such a terrible high crime neighborhood!
