hi C-D,

They are requesting a 200 dollar application fee, is this normal?

Is the Masaryk Towers projects, or are they actual apartment buildings?

theyre not projects, they are not part of NYCHA. the list you are being put on is to buy, they are rentals and co-ops.
the 200 is standard on city owned HPD coops. i also put in an application, and have paid the 200.00
my daughter used to go to a babysitter there, they are nice big apacious apartments, some with terraces, some without. they are always cleaned. they are across the street from baruch projectsl, but they are ina good location. close to the F train and the bus stops right across the street. best part is a 2 bedroom coop is only $12,000 to buy

I have a number in the 2000's. The management office said it would be at least a 3 year wait.
Yes, they are giving preference to Vets, so your wait should not be too long! Good luck to you.

I am number 2855 on the list. I have made some research before going there and check it out. Here is what I found in regards to these towers:
"Conley: I grew up in Masaryk Towers. When I was born we were living in that tower over there, #73 and then we moved to #81, the corner one back there. #81 borders on Hamilton Fish Park, which was a cement park filled with lots of broken glass, malt liquor bottles and the like. We would play our baseball there. Masaryk Towers is Mitchell-Lama. The Mitchell-Lama Housing Program is geared towards low-income families, but ones that were better off than the people across the street in NYCHA housing for extremely poor folks. Masaryk was sandwiched on the other side by more NYCHA housing. There are Mitchell-Lama projects all over the city, like Co-op City for example in the Bronx, which is pretty middle class now, I think. But by virtue of the fact that Masaryk Towers is sandwiched between NYCHA buildings, it shared much of the crime and other problems that were rampant in public housing in those days."
I am thinking towards not applying.
