Astoria Post – The latest “affordable” housing lottery has opened in Astoria and seven apartments in a 23-unit building are now on offer. The seven apartments, located at 30-68 38th St., are comprised of three one-bedroom and four two-bedroom units. The one-bedroom units are priced at $2,000 a month and are available for household sizes of up to two people. The minimum income to qualify begins at $68,572 and goes up to $100,200. The two-bedroom affordable apartments will rent for $2,400 and are available for household sizes between two and four people. An annual household income starting at $82,286 and going up to $125,160 is required to qualify—depending on family size.
…Or you can leave that cesspool of a city, not deal with piles of garbage overflowing on the streets, bums, and a crumbling public transit system and buy an entire goddamn house instead. Ya know, not live like a savage. Not making six figure income and spending all of it to live in a Fyre Festival tent.
Let me get this straight. Your household income can be up to $125,160 and they’re basically saying you’re a poor person who’s eligible for “affordable” housing – a 2 bedroom apartment for $2,400/month. And there are only FOUR available. Guess what. You’re not getting it, and those same units are probably >$3000/month if you don’t qualify. What a JOKE. You have to have rocks in your head to deal with this kind of shit.
Do yourself a favor and live anywhere else. Your quality of life will improve 1000%. Mine did.
