When I was staying at the HI New York City hotel around 103rd and Amsterdam, I noticed what appeared to be a public housing tower block a few hundred yards away from the hostel.

My question is: Are there any other subsidized housing projects south of 110th St., and especially in the Upper East Side and Midtown Manhattan, or the Nolita / Greenwich Village / etc. region? How long have residents lived there? I'm sure waiting lists are into the eternities.

There are many. Especially in Chelsea, the East Village and the Lower East Side. Yes, some of them are nowadays in prime locations, although they weren't when they were built.

In the 90s, even the Upper East Side has housing projects, and of course East Harlem has a number of projects south of 110th street. Further south, the east village and the lower east side have a number of housing projects.

On the west side, UWS and Chelsea have a lot of housing projects. Chelsea has other governmental housing, and there are a couple of SRO's in the UWS.

Waiting lists are long. If you look at other threads on this forum, the NYCA is leasing off project lands to private developers.

The East Village and Lower East Side have some of the highest concentration of public housing in the city, so definitely yeah, many projects below 96th street.

In New York, housing projects and luxury hi-rises are often side by side. Rich and poor are not that far apart.
