This week, readers visited Brick Underground for the news that Governor Andrew Cuomo reopened the application window and expanded eligibility requirements for the state's Covid rent relief program. New York allocated up to $100 million in federal stimulus funds for rent relief, but so far only about $40 million has been distributed.

Also of interest: Five houses on the market in Woodstock, an artsy town in the Catskills that's even more popular with city dwellers looking to relocate during Covid.
