Here’s your chance to have the best of both worlds–live right off Myrtle Avenue and the J, M, Z stop in Bushwick but still have a nice, quiet place to come home to. The lottery is now open for eight affordable units in the brand new Karl Fischer-designed rental at 16 Charles Place, a rare dead-end street that, for years, has been adorned with the ‘hood’s signature graffiti. New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments that range from $856/month studios to $1,114/month two-bedrooms.

The five-story building has a total of 39 units, many of which have small balconies. Other building amenities include a laundry room, lounge, parking, and rooftop deck (some may require an additional fee). It’s located on the same block as the popular coffee shop Little Skips and close to other hip spots like Happyfun Hideaway and ramen shop Chuko. The only downside is that the elevated M train runs along Myrtle Avenue nearby.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the middle-income units at 16 Charles Place until March 6, 2018. Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Brooklyn Community Board 4. 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.
