More options to consider in what appears to be a slow trickle of affordable rentals arriving in Bushwick: Applications opened today for two affordable apartments at 37A Cooper Street, a brand-new building near the Chauncey J and Z stop. 

There's a single $820/month studio available to a tenant earning between $28,115 and $36,300 a year, as well as a $940/month one-bedroom available either to a single person earning between $32,229 and $36,300 or a couple with an annual income between $32,229 and and $41,460, per the listing on NYC Housing Connect. The apartments feature in-unit washer and dryers, and are a whole lot cheaper than the building's market-rate units, like this two-bedroom asking for $2,500/month (somehow we suspect a price chop is in its future):

If you're interested in applying, we've got tips here, and you can either apply through the NYC Housing Connect website or send a postcard or self-addressed envelope to 207 West 115th Street, New York, NY, 10026 to be mailed a paper application. Applications are due by June 10th, so move quickly.
