Not-so-affordable housing lottery launches for 8 units in East Williamsburg, from $2,253/month

October 17, 2018

While 130 percent of the area median income is technically considered affordable in New York City, paying $2,253/ month for a one-bedroom apartment in East Williamsburg is still hard to swallow. The neighborhood does have a lot to offer in terms of nightlife and cultural activities, but the area’s transit options, mainly the soon-to-be-shuttered L train, leave a lot to be desired for those commuting to Manhattan. But if you can look past the price and the far-out location, consider applying for eight middle-income units at 310 Graham Avenue, a newly constructed seven-story building. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the AMI can apply for the apartments ranging from $2,253/month one-bedrooms to $3,132/month three-bedrooms.

Construction of the building wrapped up last year and leasing kicked off last July, with market-rate apartments starting at $2,699/month. Its located at the corner of Graham and Ainslie, near bustling Grand Avenue.

Amenities include a fitness center, on-site laundry, a roof deck, bike storage, and a virtual doorman. Nearest trains include the L at Graham Avenue and the G at Metropolitan Avenue, although this train is located a little over half of a mile away.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 310 Graham Avenue until November 8, 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.
