Yeah I can't afford that either.
Oh well
1300 to 1500 maybe

I donít like the kitchen. That subway tile is a no-no. Major plus, every apt comes with W/D.

That's the only plus. Can see lots of wasted space in the bathroom and kind of tacky choices. Tiny mirrors and didn't do floor to ceiling tiles.

For $2150 for a studio in that area, would expect more. They skimped on the finishes.

I agree. Look at them cheap ass handles on the bathroom cabinets. U want good looking apts? Look at 1770 Madison. For East Harlem the whole building including the interiors are nicely done

If talking about Madison and 116th, am in agreement. Only thing is wondering if that ground-level space will ever be filled with something. No retail so far...

Yep! That’s the one. They made the grocery store a little better. Don’t know if it’s the same owners of the last one at the corner of 117th. Hope they put something EH needs in that ground floor space

makes no god damn sense.

It took me a while to understand this until I researched it and found out the following. (I researched it because they wanted to tag me with a 2500+ rent for the ridiculous Stuyvesant Houses):

A single person who makes 55K is supposed to be between 80% and 100%AMI. She or he is supposed to pay between $1,375 and $1,733 for a one bedroom apartment.

Here's the way they calculate "affordability," though: A tenant is not supposed to have more than 30% of overall debt - with debt that includes credit cards, medical bills, and student loans. If you make 100K, and you have 30K and one cent over worth of debt, you're out.

If in one month, you pay more than 60% worth of bills (includes the new affordable rent tagged on to your overall monthly debt load), you will be automatically disqualified.
