Not far from Brooklyn’s Broadway Junction transit hub, a new building dubbed 50 Penn has launched an affordable housing lottery for 175 apartments, ranging from $354/month studios to $1,993/month three-bedrooms. Located at 2628 Fulton Street, it’s in the East New York neighborhood, close to both Atlantic and Jamaica Avenues and a quick walk to Forest Park. The ground floor offers retail space, including a grocery store. The units are open to those earning 30, 40, 50, 60, and 80 percent of the area median income.

Though Broadway Junction is close (where you can get the A, C, J, Z, and L trains), the J and Z trains at Alabama Avenue are just around the corner. Building amenities include an outdoor terrace, laundry room, bike storage, and community rooms.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 9, 2021. Fifty percent of units are set aside for residents of Brooklyn Community Board 5. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
