COURT SQUARE — More than 100 affordable apartments are up for grabs inside a 50-story luxury rental tower in Long Island City — where applicants can snag a studio for $947 a month.
There are 128 affordable units still available at The Hayden, which opened earlier this year at 43-25 Hunter St. and was constructed by developer Rockrose with financing from the state's Homes and Community Renewal affordable housing program.

There are also two-bedroom apartments renting for two-person households earning between $42,172 and $45,840 a year, three-person households making between $42,172 and $51,540 a year, or four-person households earning between $42,172 and $57,240 a year.
The building — which houses 974 apartments in total — offers amenities such as a fitness center, basketball court, yoga studio, a landscaped rooftop and a dog grooming station, according to the developer's website.
