How long does it take for you to hear a response? I have been applying like crazy! Even to some areas I'm not so fond of. (Bronx and Queens ) Hopefully I will get picked.

And to anyone who has applied as well, Good Luck!

These 80/20 apartment lotteries are the next *big* thing in NYC real estate. Everyone is applying which is pushing a strain on the "system" charged with processing and vetting applications.

In this new and improved "safe/clean" NYC you have some of these projects going up in very desirable parts of Manhattan. What used to be seen as housing for only a certain demographic is now sought by many. Game changer was the City requiring that the "affordable" component of these housing schemes be located onsite, rather than elsewhere. So instead of the main project going up say in Chelsea with the affordable in some God forsaken part of the Bronx, now everything is in one spot.

Am hearing and or seeing all sorts of persons of all races, sexual preferences, households, etc... circling those adverts and sending in applications.

The 80/20 process does a pretty good job of weeding out any potentially disruptive tenants. In my building the repairman always tells me it's usually the market rate tenants that leave the apartments in shambles. He attributes it to too many roommates that know they are only going to be there for a short time and so have very little concern for taking care of the apartment.
