A housing lottery launched this week for three middle-income units in the Crown Heights area of Weeksville, a historic Brooklyn neighborhood founded by freed African Americans about 180 years ago. Conveniently, the newly constructed rental at 233 Buffalo Avenue sits just a few blocks from the Weeksville Heritage Center, a museum dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African American community. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the $2,700/month three-bedroom units.

Located in between Sterling and Park Place, the building rises four stories and contains nine apartments, including two duplex penthouses. As CityRealty learned nearly two years ago, permits detail the average apartment size as measuring roughly 675 square feet.

There will also be a 225-square-foot recreation space within the building. Amenities include roof access, central air conditioning, laundry and state-of-the-art appliances.Nearest transit options include the 3, 4 and 5 trains.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 233 Buffalo Avenue until June 15, 2018. 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.
