A second affordable housing lottery launched for the Lincoln Road Apartments, a two-tower rental building offering up 27 middle-income units. Located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, the rentals at 31-33 Lincoln Road sit directly across from sprawling Prospect Park. In addition to its proximity to the park, 33 Lincoln provides residents a common roof deck, fitness center, a lounge and lots of storage. The apartments sit less than 500 feet from the B and Q trains at the Prospect Park Subway stop. New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for units ranging from $1,807/month studios to $2,733/month two-bedroom apartments.
