Well that is weird, I was just about to post the same link to the photos! Although the paint/decorating job is terrible especially in the bedroom, I am liking the size of the rooms and the kitchen looks good (would be even better with a nicer paint job ).

Wonder if the sublettor got into trouble, this wasn't exactly on the downlow.

Great minds think alike! I was wondering the same thing. I think they should get in trouble. I think it's wrong for someone to sublet especially when there are people who really need a place to live.


The room looks horrible it kinda looks like a hospital room.

Plus, I think some developments give you leeway whether or not you want to report your state or federal AGI, I assume most people go with the lowest. I've also seen "take a deduction of 1,000 if you filed a New York State tax return, in addition to the federal return".

What if you were on the waiting list and then you ended up making over 125% of the AMI while you were just waiting to be called? What happens if you end up over their limits by the time you get called in?

You will almost certainly be denied then. The absolute limits for entry are towards the bottom of this page (the 2nd set of ranges, for all coops), which as far as I can tell do work out to 125% of AMI.

The ad also calls it a loft - gotta love these brokers!

I am excited though that there is indeed a pool in the complex that is pretty cheap to join, I like to swim. That, plus there is a good, reasonably priced yoga studio two blocks away on Stanton and I think free yoga (as well as a full gym that is cheap to join) in the Hamilton Fish rec center next door. (it's really helped my leg circulation and overall strength/flexibility)

I stopped by the office today. I was taken aback by the condition of the office it was a bit outdated.
I had a number of questions to ask but I chose not to ask any.

Lets hope this darn list moves fast!!! I'm stuffed in an apartment with a teenager and a toddler!!!!

I'm worried that I'm putting all of this energy into and then I don't qualify :-(
But I'll hope for the best!!!

Good Luck Everyone.

Did anyone get any confirmation from them that they received their money order and application back?
I think its kind of weird a management company doesnt even send anything back as they are asking for $200.00lol
When I sent back my application for the UWS Mitchell Lama coop I got a letter back 1 week letter stating they received it. It seems Masaryk works way slower. My # is in the 40s on the waiting list so Im hoping I hear something soon.
