  1. Don’t see what is affordable about these apartments. They are the same rent range as any regular apartments.

  2. I am looking for a one bedroom apartment it studio apartment in Brownsville , or Bushwick area

  3. Most of these affordable.housing units are not affordable unless you work for Donald Trump or someother big realtor.

  4. Nick said it best. These apartments are no where near affordable housing minorities can’t affotd these, so these are for the rich

  5. I am 53 years old legally blind in living in the shelter system for the last 10 months I am on numerous lotteries but they receive so many applications 60000 70000 I feel like I would never get picked and the voucher that the city provides will not even provide me with a one-bedroom rent base

  6. Literally a joke. Affordable? Only one has an apartment with a minimum income of 50k and that is not…affordable conaidering there are workers and people in NYC making less than 12k a year.

  7. Hi, I would like to know if there are some building which are take section 8. Thanks you

  8. Confused as to how/why these and most “affordable “apts are listed as such because they are not affordable for most. Why is it mandated that a one family must rent a one bedroom of studio? If a person’s salary is to be used to determine if I can rent why cant I qualify for a 2 or 3 bedroom if my salary states that I can afford it? Why is there not a salary base for the rentals on Lovinia Ave, underneath the train station?..

  9. What is affordable with these apartment no way people why they’re so expensive what is affordable about this.

  10. I agree with Nick how are these affordable housing. I want to retire in 2021 or 2022 will I be able to afford o e of these apartments since I will be living on a fix income.

  11. These apartments are too expensive..if you are a senior on a fixed income..you can’t afford to pay the rent and buy food to eat..this is not affordable..

  12. I need a 2 bedroom at livonia how can it ok about it .how can I get the the application

  13. Affordable housing this is a joke. This is a shame I know a lot of people who are working but cannot afford these apartments

  14. We need to do something this is not affortable Cuomo needs to make new rules for better housing I am a mother of 2 and how can I pay so much rent for a 2 bedroom apartment because the money they required to qualify is not the money I take home.. Shame on NY

  15. This is why the city sucks think about it some scumbag landlord is sitting back getting tax breaks for calling his apartment affordable what a joke

  16. I agree with Nick also these apartment’s are way too expensive for me who’s working minimum wage…

  17. Hi, I’m looking for a two bedroom apartment in Williamsburg or Brownsville. Please I’m asking you kindly send me an application. Thank you

  18. Good afternoon,
    I’m would like to know how to apply for a 1 bedroom Apt. I will be retiring in 2022.
    I will be living with a fixed income.
    I hopefully can find a place that I would t have to move and then move out.
    Searching all over again.
    I’m interested in 7 Livonia Ave.

  19. I am also a single mother of three with a crowded living situation. I can barely afford a studio at these prices. I have been looking and filling out applications since August. I refuse to go to a shelter with my children and they have it where 1,000 people are going for 3 units apts smh. Also how can you survive paying rent, buying food, taking care of your children’s need and God forbid if you have a car or pay for you’re children to be in activities to keep them off the streets and/or child care to work smh. If we could do all of this we wouldn’t need help. I don’t want or need a hand out, we just need more of logical understanding and help.

  20. Then if you do get “HELP”, they put you through so much and its not enough to get fully on your feet. Smh

  21. In order for you to live in a nice community with a beautiful scenery instead of abandon buildings and torn up sidewalks. You have to pretty much be well out or move out of NY, which is a shame. EVERYONE should be entitled to living decently. Tear all those raggedy projects down and start anew. Give NY and everyone in NY a fresh start. Because these Housing units are beautiful and unaffordable.

  22. (Corrections)
    1. You have to be pretty much well off or move out of
    New York to afford these Housing units. Which is a shame.

    2. EVERYONE should be ABLE to live decently.

    People are coming into the neighborhood where you have lived for 10-30yrs. Building up complexes that you can’t afford to live in and can no longer live in that neighborhood. Due to hikes up prices now.
