197 Freeman Street via CityRealty
A $2,255/month one-bedroom might not be the deal of the century, but compared to the fact that the same market-rate apartment is asking $3,115, it sure seems like a steal. At 197 Freeman Street in Greenpoint, just a few blocks from the waterfront and right near cool spots like the Lobster Join and Troost, six apartments are available through the city’s affordable housing lottery to New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income. They range from $2,100/month studios to $2,715/month two-bedrooms, and the newly constructed building offers a gym, roof deck, and laundry.
The building went up last year and has just 20 apartments. It’s about a 12-minute walk to the Greenpoint stop on the NYC Ferry and six blocks to the M train at Greenpoint Avenue.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 197 Freeman Street until August 6, 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.
