    I’m guessing 130% of AMI with $1,850 “affordable” studios helps to keep out the riff raff.

      Did you see that one of the studios is 6.5″ WIDE!!! Insane. That would be small even as a college dorm room! Sure to inspire depression in any unfortunate inhabitants.

  8. What is riff rat ? Please explain

  9. Apply online nyhousing lottery be careful of phone calls

  10. Such a lovely project. May i have a apply for affordable house.?

  11. Riff raff but what happened to affordable to all and not just those who have more than others cause community is creating through equality and not what’s in your wallets and allowing landlords exploit and deny folks of race creed or color!!!

  12. Again, the “affordable” title they keep putting on these new developments which ;ultimately, displace’s residents from the surrounding community due to, rent increases, COL increases, and removal of the community’s cultural identity. What A SHAME. Rip NYC.

  13. It’s unbelievable how high the “affordable” rent is. You have to be rich to live here. I’m moving to Buffalo!

  18. These are not affordable apartments.

  19. Good luck opening the refrigerator.

  20. I live in an “affordable housing” in Yonkers,NY, they asked for $45.000 minimum. Within 11 years the building has been basically looks like a shelter.
    They asked for so much money income, and you end up living in danger.

    Now, I’m asking ¿What’s “Affordable”?, with a $65.000 a year, I can pay a $2.000 monthly and have not to go every year with a lease and showing my Taxes.
    Anyway,my income is not that high like to dream to go back to my old County. I wish!

  21. 1850 for a studio. WTH is affordable about that. It’s LIC not the UES.

  22. Do you take program?
