One- and two-person households earning 50 or 60 percent of the area median income (between $21,978 and $51,240 annually) can now apply for 20 affordable studios at 212 Hegeman Avenue, a newly constructed, 71-unit rental in Brownsville. Sixty percent of the units are set aside as supportive housing for formerly homeless and disabled New Yorkers, while 29 percent are open to the public. Residents can take advantage of on-site social services, a computer lab, landscaped rear yard, and laundry room.

Recently constructed on a vacant lot, the building is just a quick walk to the New Lots Avenue L train station and is also close to the 3 train at Saratoga Avenue. On the next block is the Brownsville Recreation Center and playground.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the apartments at 212 Hegeman Avenue until February 10, 2020. Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Brooklyn Community Board 16. 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.
