A 4,500-name waitlist has just come online for affordable apartments in 14 buildings across the Bronx. The majority of the addresses are clustered just east of Woodlawn Cemetery, while another few are located farther south near the New Botanical Garden. The units are available to those earning 75, 80, 85, and 95 percent of the area median income and range from $1,056 studios to $2,366 three-bedrooms.
The buildings are all close to stops along the 2 and 5 trains. Specific details of each address aren’t provided, but the advertisement does say that some offer parking for an additional fee.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply to be randomly selected for the waitlist for future vacancies 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.
