  1. Is this SUPPOSED to be AFFORDABLE for the average New York/Brooklyn resident? These rents are in competition with Manhattan. Smh. Obviously these committees and the people involved are creating more problems to the current disaster for NYC.

    With the lack of affordable housing for the low or mid salary worker and their families will further increase the Homeless population, relocation, and A LARGE VOLUME OF AVAILABLE EMPTY APARTMENTS while the upper and rich occasionally visit or reside at their apartments when it suits their purpose and the housing market will lose whatever potential housing income because of GREED and LACK OF STRATEGY.

  2. I can’t believe y’all call this affordable housing y’all gotta be out of your minds. I have to be making almost $100,000 to afford a 1 bedroom apartment. That sounds absolutely ridiculous!

  3. NONE of these are affordable. You’re still gentrifying and pricing out minorities and working class people. Greedy fucking bastards.

  4. Affordable to who? RIDICULOUS!!! This is not AFFORDABLE and not the Brooklyn I grew up in. They really need to be a shame of themselves.

  5. Those are NOT affordable housing!!! We need truly affordable housing in Brooklyn! For us working class!
    Those housing is not for us. We can’t afford it.

  6. SMH 🤦🏾‍♀️ These prices are pushing the average Black family out of the community—which is what they intend to do, very sad. Call your Congressman or congresswomen. Don’t just sit back and watch this happen.

  7. These new buildings that so affforsable ain’t really that affordable for a regular person working the average person working is not making 46000 to 5600 thousand of the requirements this is a disgrace to most residents of Brooklyn born and raised here . Really Brooklyn wake up already and do something we getting pushed out to segregated areas just in order to live normal this ain’t right!!!

  8. Really???? What’s affordable. I have a sister who’s been Waiting for almost 8 years sleeping on a couch waiting. A breast cancer survivor 2x. And lymphedema on her left leg! Makes less than 1000$ on social security!

  9. Minimum wage which is most jobs in this city comes to $1720 after taxes. How is this affordable? This city and some others are bonkers and trying to turn into Dubai’s? Where only the rich live… smh

  10. I can Believe it either. How to hell you can
    Afford this. I have a full-time job and I make $50,000 a year single. And I am 64 years old. Not sure why you can list us as affordable.

  11. whenever I hear politicians ( especially Black ones say we’re better than that ) when speaking of American values I think of blatant racism like this, who are they really trying to attract?

  12. How are these rents considered affordable??? Native New Yorkers can no longer afford to live in their own city!! I’ve tried looking for apartments but the sky rocketed rents are ridiculous!!

  13. Why is it difficult to understand the change in NYC…Brooklyn is being changed lil by lil a while ago, on it’s way to a more expensive housing area due to those muti – million $ houses in mostly all area,, they will not keep anything lower,meaning if you’re not a professional or making a descent salary, move on. Even probably more expensive than Manhattan.

  14. My 5 year old daughter and I are LITERALLY facing homelessness Becca of this BULLSH*T right here. I can’t seem to understand how I’m earning just over 50K and cannot fine even ONE apartment. Not one!!!! I am ANGRY, I am STRESSED, I am WORRIED.. I cannot sleep, eat, or hardly even think because I’m constantly worrying about my baby and I on the street. WHY is this happening!?

  15. This is a shame they r putting up these buildings n is low class people can not afford this apartments smh Homeless will be on the rise

  16. Are you serious? Why would someone making upwards of 100,00 needs are break on their rent! This isn’t affordable for the everyday working class person. Blooming berg started this trend of making rents astronomical. This is a damn shame! And what the hell is the asshole in city hall doing but further perpetuating the problem!

  17. Brooklyn is no longer Brooklyn! They push out the working class and minorities for their own gain. A long time ago no one wanted to live in Brooklyn now it’s a “hot spot.” No one seems to care !

  18. I live in Bushwick. These new buildings are not affordable. I been working for city 15 years. No way I’m pay over $2000 for one bedroom apt.
    Goal is to move everyone out. People are being buy out sell there homes. This is so sad. Homeless is on rise.
    This needs stop.

  19. Ofcourse its affordable to them whites moving from Manhattan gentrificationing neighborhoods making hard for those who been here smh

  20. Affordable hum for WHO? The damage is already done, blame your So -Called Congressman & women who was elected to represent your community that sat by and watched it happened. They put more time into rallying to get votes just to get into office , have a name & title and do nada.. As anyone might wonder who got the contracts to do it not no regular Joe and who will continue to benefit.

  21. We are currently being oppressed be in our own neighborhood that we grew up in.

    Politicianss do nothing!

    The people that move into the area are transients, they will never be long term and yes, look at the new unaffordable skyscraper apartments downtown Brooklyn…these buildings are more empty than full !

    Moving to New Jersey tomorrow!8

  22. They’re not affordable…just another slap in the face for the people born and raised in Brooklyn. What young adult makes almost $100k for a 1 bedroom at minimum wage.
    We can’t even live in our own city!! Sad very sad

  23. I remember growing up in Bedford Stuyvesant and that being the area no one wanted to be in. Now it’s the “hot spot” and more expensive than ever. The change is dramatic and forcing people who’ve once called this place home to be so stressed about minor things like how to get a meal on the table for dinner. It’s such a shame, the feel of the neighborhood isn’t even the same.

  24. How is this affordable please
    Somebody explain this to me like a two year old for one person to afford an one bedroom they have to make close to 100k how when and why. Now this is what should be on the news

  25. These aren’t low income apts this is taking over my neighborhood with these high rents I worked for 21 yrs with the city now I am disable and have a section eight certificate and can’t fine an apt Not fair I would like to continue living too

  26. How dare you@iambklyner! Many of us was born and raised here in bklyn. You are probably one of many bastards, that just came to our 5 boroughs. We are the bklyn middle class. We have applied for these apts, and have been denied. W/no reason! We’ve written to HPD and they refused to investigate. You don’t know what your talking about! I don’t need, or want a respond from you!

  27. Stop with white vs black. I’m white and can’t afford these rents and I know black people who can. This definitely is not fare and I don’t agree with it nor do I like the change in Bklyn but to the person who said Bed Sty isn’t the same well you’re right there aren’t lowlife drug dealing thugs all over the place or at least not like there use to be so now everyone is paying the price to have it cleaned up. Bklyn is the new Manhattan that’s just the way it is. I pray for those near to being homeless it’s just not right!

  28. Just unethical…..
    & we wont talk about the items / credentials that they want to secure the apartment once you are chosen …it would be simpler to just give a kidney. So it is very clear what tenants are desired
    Average New Yorker doesn’t make enough money by the hour to afford these UNAFFORDABLE APARTMENTS

  29. This list is a example of how blatantly disrespectful and greedy the council for housing “preservation” has become along with the ever so dunce mayor and constituents who watch as the lower to middle class suffer. People are leaving the city by the bus load and in a effort to further disrespect the residents of NY this is what has become affordable. Firstly it’s a abuse of the term affordable. There isn’t one single apt on that list that is priced low enough for ppl who need real affordable housing. The areas these place are located don’t even need to be priced that high building shiny buildings in rundown low income neighborhoods doing nothing with the surrounding areas makes it all the more ridiculous. It’s time to have all involved investigated enough Is enough. Also to the editor to this article please edit adding outrage and how bias and one sided this pricing is. The general public is tired of this crap!
