Starting today, qualified New Yorkers can apply for six affordable apartments at 28-22 Astoria Boulevard, a new mixed-use building just two blocks away from the Astoria Boulevard N, Q station and three blocks from the popular Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden. The seven-story, red-brick corner rental has 25 apartments with retail on the ground floor. The affordable units, reserved for those earning between 60 and 80 percent of the AMI, are three $1,158/month studios and three $1,330/month one-bedrooms, quite the deal considering market-rate units in the building are renting for around $3,000/month for one-bedrooms and $4,300/month for two-bedrooms.
