Just two blocks inland from Newton Creek and right near hot spots like the Brooklyn Ice Cream Company, Saint Vitus Bar, and Milk & Roses, a stretch of Box Street is transforming from its industrial past to a more modern, residential block. At 56 Box Street, a new six-story rental, new Greenpoint tenants started moving in last August, and now a middle-income lottery has launched for six of the units, $2,253/month one-bedrooms and $2,716/month two-bedrooms. The market-rate units go from $2,650/month one-bedrooms to $3,300/month two-bedrooms. So while this isn’t the deal of the century, there are still some savings to be had in an up-and-coming ‘hood.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 56 Box Street until June 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.
