Here’s your chance to live in pretty Prospect-Lefferts Gardens for, perhaps, less than the neighborhood’s market-rate rents. An affordable housing lottery is opening for seven units in a new, eight-story building at 212 Linden Boulevard. As 6sqft recently uncovered, many middle-income apartments throughout the city serve more to subsidize the truly affordable units, and therefore, don’t come in that much cheaper. Here, the homes are available to those earning 130 percent of the median income and range from $1,800/month studios to $2,714/month two-bedrooms. By comparison, the market-rate rentals range from $1,850/one bedrooms to $3,000/month two-bedrooms.

The building is just six blocks from the east end of Prospect Park and two blocks from the 2 and 5 trains at Church Avenue. It has a secured intercom system, remote building entry, elevator, rooftop recreation space, bike storage, laundry room, and private parking (for which additional fees apply).
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 212 Linden Boulevard until May 9, 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.
