A housing lottery launched on Friday for 23 middle-income apartments in one of Brookyn’s most bustling and transit-friendly neighborhoods, Boerum Hill. Located at 346 Bergen Street, the six-story rental sits two blocks from the Atlantic Avenue Terminal, which holds the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, R, and Long Island Rail Road trains. New Yorkers earning 70 or 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, which range from $1,262/month one-bedroom to a $2,803/month two-bedroom.
Residents have access to on-site parking, a laundry room, and balconies for some units. Bklyner reported in 2016 that the plan to turn the vacant lot into a residential building took nearly a decade.
In addition to the number of subway trains available, the building sits between the best of neighboring areas like Park Slope, Prospect Heights, and Gowanus, which all have a plethora of bars, restaurants, and cafes. Plus, the five-floor Atlantic Terminal Mall conveniently offers a Target, Best Buy, Uniqlo, and many more.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until July 29, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Brooklyn Community Board 2. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
