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.

What's AMI:
HPD - About - What Is Affordable Housing

Page 51 on the marketing handbook:

And yet they almost never have anything for 80 to 100AMI

^^^^ That handbook is a passel of reading.


I gave it the once over this morning, but anyone still in "the game" should read it thoroughly at least twice. There are lots of pitfalls.

Passed by this place on Saturday, and boy does it help that part of 3rd Avenue. I didn't see so many scabs hanging around either, so maybe they'll take the hint and move further up along 3rd.

Not from what I saw. The Bronx express buses stop in front now. The 101 and 102 stop just down the block. Either way, it's still better than having to wait by the Taino Towers with that scaffolding. All of the scabs hang out under there and it is extremely dirty.

That's great news. Much nicer there. I'm sure that new building will have a doorman too which should deter loiterers and the like.
