As 6sqft reported in January, a lottery launched at StuyTown for households earning $86,670 to $170,115 per year. And prior to that lottery, applications were last accepted in February of 2017, for $2,805/month one-bedrooms and $3,366/month two-bedrooms.

Those who applied for previous lotteries (but not including lotteries from 2016 or earlier) do not need to apply again, as applicants remain on the waitlist for future vacancies. The spacious apartments feature parquet floors, an AC unit, lots of closet space and appliances, including a dishwasher. Most utilities are included.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units as of today until October 11, 2018. 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.
