Waterfront luxury living in New York City doesn’t have to be out of reach. Located on the East River in Hunter’s Point South, Gotham Point is a mixed-use complex with over 1,100 apartments, 75 percent of which are priced below the market rate. Applications are now being accepted for 270 rent-stabilized apartments at the Long Island City development’s South tower. The building is open to New Yorkers with a wide range of household income levels, between 30 percent and 165 percent of the area median income (AMI), or between $15,806 and $244,200 annually.
