Does that mean some people have started moving into the building?

Hi Fireginger,


Thanks for posting the link to the pics.

One of the pics had this comment - "During the marketing phase, residents of Manhattan Community Board 4 received a preference for 50% of the units and New Yorkers displaced by Hurricane Sandy received a preference for 25% of the units. All of the co-op units at the Park Clinton have been filled with eligible applicants having been randomly selected through a City-supervised housing lottery."


So, does that mean that all of the units have already been filled???? Does anyone know if they already selected enough applicants from the different preferences?

I have no idea. I just thought to post the link because of the visuals.

They are still interviewing and no one has moved in. HPD made a misstatement . Building looks great.

I had my income eligibility interview and was asked to come in to check out available apartments after my credit was approved. The day before my appointment I was told that the appointment needs to be cancelled as there may not be any more 1br's available based on my lottery number, and that they will need to call me back. Any sense of my chances now?

Hi, I just read this post and was wondering how you found out about the information session. How do people find out about any of these lotteries and affordable housing. I'd really appreciate you help since I'm new at this. Thanks! Arley

Hi AptHunter,


That's a tough situation. I would say it's slim but I hear people can be flakey in these lotteries so I'd remain cautiously optimistic.


If you don't mind me asking, what income bracket were you in? Also, did you have any application preferences? (disability, community board) I'm in the 34-48K so I'm just trying to gauge my own chances. Thanks!

I was the second bracket, so up to ~103k. No preference.
