Just two blocks inland from Newton Creek and right near hot spots like the Brooklyn Ice Cream Company, Saint Vitus Bar, and Milk & Roses, a stretch of Box Street is transforming from its industrial past to a more modern, residential block. At 56 Box Street, a new six-story rental, new Greenpoint tenants started moving in last August, and now a middle-income lottery has launched for six of the units, $2,253/month one-bedrooms and $2,716/month two-bedrooms. The market-rate units go from $2,650/month one-bedrooms to $3,300/month two-bedrooms. So while this isn’t the deal of the century, there are still some savings to be had in an up-and-coming ‘hood.
