A Park Slope two-bedroom for $1070 a month—way below the $3,000 a month median rent? There are two affordable housing units of that size up for grabs at this new 17-unit building at 65 Park Place, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
The caveat: The minimum income to qualify is $36,686; the maximum for a family of two is $41,460; for a family of three, $46,620; and for a family of four it's $51,780. Also, one-bedroom apartments priced at $945 a month—to qualify, you must make between $32,400 and $36,300 for a single person, and between $32,400 and $41,460 for a couple—are also available, but there are only two.
And you also have to win the housing lottery, of course.
Apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows and parking spots can be had for an additional fee. Most market rate two-bedrooms in the building have gone for upwards of $4,000 a month. There are currently two three-bedrooms on the market for over $6,000 a piece.
Applications are due October 13th.
