Both buildings are prewar, but the units listed here have been revamped; property amenities include an elevator, laundry room, and on-site resident manager. The location is appealing, too, with Jackie Robinson Park just a block away, and the A, B, C, D, and 3 train lines all within walking distance. The Sugar Hill neighborhood even has its very own beer—read about other area secrets here.
Typically, these lotteries devote half the units to current residents of the neighborhood, but that preference isn't noted here; five percent of the apartments are set aside for municipal employees, however.
