625 Jefferson Pl., one of two buildings that are being fixed up through a city program.


Applications are open for 16 discounted apartments in two buildings undergoing renovations in Morrisania, the Bronx. The apartments are available through the city's housing lottery.

The units are studios and one and two bedrooms in two prewar buildings, one at 625 Jefferson Pl., and the other at 3531 Third Ave. The apartments are set aside for households making $33,223-$110,160 a year, with rents starting at $897 a month, for studios.

The buildings are being fixed up as part of the city's Third Party Transfer Program, in which the city helps organizations buy and fix up dilapidated buildings and preserve them as low- and moderate-income housing.

Full income eligibility and rent details are here:


The Jefferson Place building is a block south of Crotona Park, and seven blocks from the 2 and 5 trains at Freeman Street. The Third Avenue building is near a more bustling intersection, populated with tire shops, a halal slaughterhouse, and a Retro Fitness gym, and down the block from Harriet Tubman Charter School. That building is eight blocks from the Melrose Metro-North station, and 12 blocks from the 167th Street B and D station.

If you're interested and think you might qualify for one of these apartments, you can create a profile and apply online via NYC Housing Connect. Don't apply more than once, or you could be disqualified. Details for applying to these particular buildings are here.
