A housing lottery launched Friday for just three one-bedroom apartments in the northern section of Crown Heights. Located at 730 Prospect Place, the building rises five stories and contains eight units. It sits between the colorful, Rafael Viñoly-designed Brooklyn Children’s Museum and Brower Park and the myriad of food and drink options of Franklin and Washington Avenues. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the three $2,253/month one-bedroom units.
