In the Crotona Park East section of the Bronx, 79 affordable apartments are available for senior households earning between $0 and $51,200 annually. Those who qualify and have one household member who is 62 years of age or older will pay 30 percent of their income for the studio and one-bedroom apartments. Located at 1490 Southern Boulevard, the brand new building has a laundry room, fitness room, community room, elevator lobby lounge, bike, storage, and on-site social services. It also boasts a landscaped rear yard and a large outdoor terrace on the eighth floor with plantings and plenty of seating.

In total, the building has 115 units of senior housing. It was designed by Bernheimer Architecture. The on-site social services are provided by JASA, and the LGBT Network is operating a community facility on the first floor. It’s located just a few blocks from the 2 and 5 trains at both Freeman Street and 174th Street.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 4, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to Bronx residents. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
