211 New Affordable Apartments Available in Soundview

Applications are now being accepted for 211 brand new apartments at 1530 Story Avenue via NYC’s Affordable Housing lottery.

The building is located just a short walk across the Bruckner Expressway to the Morrison Ave/Soundview Station on the 6 line or a short bus or bike ride to the new Soundview Ferry landing in Clason Point.

These particular units are part of a new two-building expansion of Lafayette Boynton, a 972 unit affordable housing development and the new buildings will add another 435 units to this development which was originally constructed almost 50 years ago.

Rents range as low as $865 for studio units for individuals making 60% of the area median income which is $31,543-$43,680 and as high as $2,184 for a three bedroom apartment for families making 125% of the AMI which is $77,418-$151,250 (the latter doesn’t sound too affordable does it?).

Go to the city’s website to apply and as always, good luck!
