So some of them assume that they're entitled to live that way, and others should provide them with the means to do so.

After rethinking it, I no longer feel sorry for her or him. I've made up my mind.

The couple are both idiots. Didn't they look at the paperwork before signing and giving up the funds for the apartment? Didn't they ask how much of the terrace they were going to get? They're stuck now. Those high rise new developments are so ugly anyway over there in LIC. They're tiny, have this open kitchen area and they're not worth the $. There's always some kind of a catch.

One only need to look at the pictures in the article. I have seen happier faces in a Nazi concentration camp. Those poor souls.

2 grand for that apartment and they even get ample balcony space like that? If I didn't know any better I'd have thought this was some Onion article lampooning entitled millennial yuppies.

Boo-freakin'-hoo.

There are people that pay over $3,000.00 a month for a 1 bedroom in the surrounding luxury hugh rise buildings and they don't have gigantic terraces, so I no longer feel bad for them. I'm so grateful and those 2 don't seem that way. Once again, that's just my opinion.

I feel bad for the person who is paying over $3,700.00 in rent for the 1 bedroom on the top floor because they told her that her amenity includes a gym and thats not even open yet. Theres no open date as of today. Who wants to pay close to 4K a month in rent and not have access to a gym that was advertised by the real estate agent? I know you wouldn't.

@Withdisp - I understand your frustration. This is the 1st middle income lottery in NYC, so I'm very thankful. I was never destitute enough to qualify for low income housing because I always made above 25K since graduating college. I never had 3 kids at 16 or a baby daddy beat me when he was drunk. I feel NYC and America always punishes the working class citizen.
I guess you don't know that HUD classifies a 30K ceiling as "very low income." Beyond that, you're still "low income" according to NYC standards. Above 25K after college is nothing to brag about, honey.

It's a stupid way to cordon off private balcony space. If I were paying that much rent, I'd get out some heavy duty bolt cutters.

I'm guessing the rent is 30% of income range? That would mean these people are basically paying what most of us SHOULD pay, but with some luxe amenities. Nice, but not enough to justify this much resentment.

They pay $2,188.00 to be in a 2 bedroom luxury condo type high rise and they're 1 stop from Manhattan. There in Queens version of Brooklyn Heights. The surrounding buildings charge around $3,500.00 to $4,200.00 for a 2 bedroom but in a full service building.

The Q41 doesn't have a concierge and the gym is not open yet. Some things to keep in mind.
