Lottery opens for two affordable units in prime Greenpoint, starting at $904/Month

November 3, 2016

The latest lottery through the city’s affordable housing portal is for two units in a brand-new Greenpoint building. Located at 126 India Street in the heart of the neighborhood–just a couple blocks from the Grenenpoint Avenue G train station, three blocks from the waterfront, and right near all the hot spots like Ovenly, Troost, and the Water Table–the eight-unit building has high ceilings, heated floors in the bathrooms, washers/dryers, and high-end appliances. The two apartments up for grabs are a $904/month studio and a $1,039/month one-bedroom.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 126 India Street until November 30, 2016. Residents of Brooklyn Community Board 1 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units.
