HARLEM, NY — A lottery for 32 Harlem apartments the city considers "affordable" is now accepting applications, but the units carry rents that are pricier than the typical apartment in the neighborhood and require high incomes.
The apartments at the newly-developed 251 W. 117TH St., located between St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, start at $2,357 per month for a studio and go as high as $3,044 per month for a two bedroom, according to the city's housing connect website. Renters must earn at least $80,812 per year to qualify for studios, $86,606 for a one-bedroom and $104,366 for a two-bedroom.
