It was a stupid mistake, I hope I'll be called for an interview no sooner then two months, my score will jump again in two months...
Any of you who have been in an interview do you know the score minimum required?

We just this week got an e-mail asking for documentation. My application # was 57xxx or thereabouts and my log # is 18xx. They said we were "randomly selected" to submit documents. I was pretty surprised, knowing all the people just on here waiting to hear anything, and knowing they only have 142 apartments, some of which are already taken. I can't believe that with all the people in this city who need an affordable place to live that it would take them this long to fill 142 apartments. Self employment, schedule C, 1099 all apply in our case, too, so I expect to go through a lot of aggro. I have no expectations, but will let everyone know what happens.

Did anyone who applied through the affordable housing, actually get chosen? And have an interview yet? I had a unit viewing and the apartments are nice ofcourse not much of a view(which I expected)amenities were way too expensive($900 a year which was the "low income discount" as opposed to the 1,000 a month for the other tenants.

The interviewer never told me what score you have to have but my score was in your range and I went on to have an interview. You should be fine

What amenities does that include, gym, lounge, roof, etc? $900 for the year is not bad, my friend is in an 80/20 and they have no discount for the lower people and she has to pay $100 a month. $75 is on point with gym like NYSC, Crunch etc.

The units look to be quite small with not much living space, especially in the studios. What size did you look at? Did it have good closet space?

I believe the amenities included gym, pool, basketball court, golf course simulator and a couple other things. Don't get me wrong that's not a bad price at all when you do the math. However, they said you would have to pay the full $900 up front. On top of having to spend money on carpet installation(yes you MUST have carpet)for the unit, that's just too much money on top of a deposit also. Yes, the units weren't as big as I imagined, but here in NYC everything seems to be getting smaller & I saw a one bedroom. The kitchen/living room were combined which I didn't like and there were two closets which were decent sized.

My friend had to have carpet installed in her apt 80/20 apt too. Well actually they just installed it so she didn't pay.
Whats sad is the the think the "poor" people make too much noise so they have to have carpet so they don't bother the people below them. Mean while the people above them can keep the wood floor and make as much noise as possible.
