How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

Applications have opened for 11 affordable rentals in a new construction Murray Hill building, according to a new listing posted on NYC Housing Connect. Successful applicants will get access to a mix of one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms (plus one studio), with units priced from $833 to $1,082 for renters with household incomes between $30,446 and $54,360, depending on apartment and family size. 

You can check out the full list of apartments, prices, and income ranges below:

The building is at 210 East 39th Street; it's a new construction 19-story mixed-used project, as Curbed has reported, and amenities include a 24-hour doorman, roofdeck lounges, in-building laundry, and for extra fees, a resident's lounge, fitness center, and bike storage.

Per usual with this kind of affordable housing development, preference for half of the discounted units will go to current residents of the neighborhood, in this case Manhattan's Community Board 6. If you're interested and think you qualify, you can create a profile and apply online via NYC Housing Connect, or request a paper application by mailing a self-addressed envelope to 210E39, c/o Housing Partnership Development Corporation, 242 West 36th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10018. (Note: don't send in more than one application, or you could be diqualified altogether.)

You should move quickly: Applications are due February 28th.

Note: Brick Underground is in no way affiliated with New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development or the Housing Development Corporation. If you are interested in applying to this or other affordable housing developments, please go to the NYC Housing Connect website for information and instructions.
