We’re eligible for a three bedroom however they only have two bedrooms available which is fine for us. We’re in the 165% AREA MEDIAN INCOME (AMI). We love the unit, management company seems great and fell in love with the island. We don’t mind the space probably cause we’re a very minimalist family. I felt a little discounted due to our log number being so high 31,000s however Jeremy let us know remain optimistic and they will be in contact with us we signed some hdc and income forms. Hopefully they will reach back out when they reached our log number.
You want to live in a smaller unit then the one you have? Sounds like a downgrade to me. Are you a rental subsidy tenant? If so, you have options. I wish I had that. Sheesh. I know people who live in beautifully spacious units with a rental subsidy.

Check out the article below:

“what began as a “poor door” has now evolved into the concept of a “poor building.”

Honestly not opposed to this.

I live in a low income building, and the people here don't give a crap about common decency and respect for living with others. Marijuana smoke fills the halls daily and music is played at concert level at all times of the day.

If I payed 5k rent for a 1 bed and had to live with that, those apartments would be continually empty.

Yes, I understand. That’s why personally I won’t apply for a lottery apartment in a distressed community with CB preference or for a building with more 40, 60, and 80% AMIs than 100, 120 or 165%.

I get it. I feel the same about those types of tenants. A while back, I did see ghetto ass tenants coming out of the RI Riverwalk affordable housing building talking all loud and smelling like weed. They should put all those ghetto ass people in NYCHA and everyone else who are just low income and cause no problems should get the new affordable housing units. I'm sick of those nycha types. they make all low income look bad.
