While the Bronx has been busting at the seams with affordable housing lotteries, most of them have been clustered in the southern areas of the borough. The latest, however, takes us up to the historic Fieldston neighborhood of Riverdale, considered one of the city’s best preserved early 20th century suburbs. These nine available units, $1,230/month one-bedrooms and $1,403/month two-bedrooms, may not be located in one of the area’s signature revival style homes, but they are in a brand new building at 6155 Broadway, right on Van Cortlandt Park and steps away from the prestigious Horace Mann school.

The six-story building was completed this year by the Stagg Group through the city’s 421-a program and has a total of 44 units. The listing notes that amenities include hardwood floors, an elevator, gym, recreation room, laundry room, cameras, intercom, and bicycle parking.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 6155 Broadway until September 2, 2016. Residents of Bronx Community Board 8 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
