HARLEM — Applications for 24 below market rate apartments located in East and Central Harlem are now available through the city's affordable housing program.
Twenty-two of the apartments are at 2211 Third Ave. at a newly constructed HAP Developer's building in East Harlem. The 12-story building boasts 108 apartments in total, and will feature a supermarket on the first floor, according to the developer's site.
Applicants need to meet a 60 percent area median income (AMI) for all units, or between $33,189 to $57,240 depending on the size of the unit and how many people are in the household.
Applicants who snag one of these apartments will have access to amenities such as in-unit laundry, doorman service, a community gym and outdoor spaces as well as storage, bike racks and on-site parking.
Preference will be given to residents in Manhattan Community Board 11. The deadline to apply is Sept. 12.
