Applications opened this morning for affordable rentals at My Micro NY, the much-buzzed-about complex of micro-apartments just constructed at 335 East 27th Street in Kips Bay. A pet project of then-mayor Michael Bloomberg, the building consists of studios 360 square feet and under, all of which were put together at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, then stacked into the building, as Curbed NY reported earlier this summer.
There are two types of studios available,
per the listing on NYC Housing Connect: 11 $950/month studios for one person earning between $34,526 and $48,350, or two people making between $34,526 and $55,250; and three $1,492/month studios for one person making between $53,109 and $78,650, or two people making between $53,109 and $89,830. (Seems to us you could get a lot more space for $1,492 a month if you just moved uptown or to the outer boroughs, but nobody asked us.)
You can check out renderings of the project below (via
the NYC Mayor's Office Flickr account), as well as video of the units actually being stacked:
