For those looking to move away from the soon-to-be-shuttered L train but remain in Brooklyn, this affordable housing lottery may be a decent solution. Applications are now being accepted for 67 middle-income apartments across two buildings in Bushwick, both conveniently near the J, M, Z subway lines. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, ranging from $1,759/month studios to $2,506/month two-bedrooms.
The newly constructed residences, at 889 Bushwick Avenue and 340 Evergreen Avenue, boast amenities like a gym, laundry room, outdoor parking, bike storage, and pet spa. In addition to being close to transit, the buildings sit near lots of art galleries, night-life spots, and restaurants.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 889 Bushwick Avenue and 340 Evergreen Avenue until December 31, 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.
