A Greenpoint rental building located near the foot of the Pulaski Bridge launched a housing lottery this week for eight middle-income apartments. The development, dubbed Freeman’s Corner, contains two buildings at 215 and 216 Freeman Street. Units boast oversized windows, polished concrete floors, built-in Bluetooth speakers and some feature private balconies. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, which include four $2,270/month one-bedrooms and four $2,733/month two-bedrooms.
Although the rental building is located on busy McGuiness Boulevard, it sits just a block from the many bars, restaurants and shops on Manhattan Avenue. Residents will also be able to enjoy a fitness center, yoga room, laundry room, roof deck, bike storage, and parking, for an additional fee.
While the G train is Greenpoint’s go-to subway, the many trains of Long Island City are just one stop, or a short bus trip, away. For those who love cycling, the Pulaski Bridge’s two-way protected bike lane make the ride to LIC and back even faster.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 215 Freeman Street until August 8, 2018. 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.
