A housing lottery is launching to replenish the waitlist for a number of rental buildings in East Harlem. Starting Monday, applications will be accepted for 2,000 spots on a waitlist for buildings at 1890-1990 Lexington Avenue, 1940-1962 First Avenue, 420-455 East 102nd Street, 1295-1309 Fifth Avenue, and 1660 Madison Avenue. New Yorkers earning 150 and 160 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, ranging from $1,667/month studios to $3,714/month four-bedroom apartments. Eligible applicants will be randomly selected and placed on the waitlist for future vacancies.

Most of the buildings, which are managed by C+C Apartment Management LLC, feature community rooms, parking, an on-site super, and some include a laundry room. The apartments span the width of the neighborhood, from 1940-1962 First Avenue on the East River to 1660 Madison, near the near Central Park’s Northeastern end.

Transit options are decent, with access to the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and Q trains, depending on the building. More details regarding each individual property can be found here.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for a spot on the waitlist at these apartments until July 1, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf).

Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311. If you don’t qualify for the housing lotteries mentioned, visit CityRealty.com’s no-fee rentals page for other apartment deals in the city.
