With apartments ranging from $867/month studios to $1,123/month two-bedrooms, you might have some cash leftover to splurge on a Katz’s pastrami sandwich, frozen key lime pie, or smoked rack of ribs at Brooklyn’s largest food hall, DeKalb Market, just around the corner. You’ll also be just two blocks from all the action at 9 DeKalb Avenue, the borough’s future tallest tower. These 22 brand new residences at 237 Duffield Street, a 105-unit building designed by Karl Fischer, come online Tuesday through the city’s affordable housing lottery and are reserved for New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income.
