$368 PER MONTH STUDIOS UP FOR LOTTERY IN LOCUST MANOR IN JAMAICA AS WELL AS 1 & 2 BEDROOMS APARTMENTS

Let’s try not to get hood rats in here who pimp out young underage girls, like St. Alban’s Joseph Gilbert did for 4 months with a 15 year old girl in Rev. Floyd Flake’s Greater Allen Senior Residence on Merrick Blvd, which the Flake nor Greater Allen Church have still not made any comment or returned phone calls for reporters since this broke on June 1st (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/09/flake-dynasty-greater-allen-a-m-e-church-still-refusing-to-speak-to-press-in-regards-to-15-year-old-girl-being-pimped-out-for-4-months-in-their-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence/).

QUEENS — More than 80 affordable units — including studios that will rent for as low as $368 a month — are up for grabs in a new residential building in South Jamaica.

The eight-story Pavilion at Locust Manor, at 171-04 Baisley Blvd. near Marsden Street, is located less than a mile away from the LIRR Locust Manor station.

The newly constructed smoke-free building features elevators, security cameras, a visual intercom system, parking lot, laundry and community rooms, and bicycle storage, according to the listing posted on the NYC Housing Connect website.

Those earning 30, 40, 50, 60 and 100 percent of the area median income can apply for eight studios, 31 one-bedrooms and 45 two-bedrooms, which are priced between $368 and $1,511 a month, depending on income and the size of the family.

For example, the listing includes three studios that will rent for $368 a month available to single applicants who earn between $14,503 and $20,040 a year.

There will also be six one-bedroom units for $558 a month for one person making between $21,086 and $26,720a year or two people earning between $21,086 and $30,560 a year.

The listing also includes 20 two-bedroom units for $1,065 a month for two people making between $36,503 and $45,840 a year, three people earning between $38,503 and $51,540 a year or four-person households making between $38,503 and $57,240 a year, according to the income requirements.

Applicants who live in Queens Community Board 12, which includes Jamaica, St. Albans, Hollis, South Ozone Park and Springfield Gardens, will get a preference for half of the units.

The property belongs to the D&F Development Group LLC, a Long Island-based developer who is receiving a tax exemption under the 421-a program in exchange for providing the affordable units. The developer is also currently constructing a 53-unit, eight-story building nearby called the Horizon at Locust Manor, which will include some Section 8 units, according to the company’s website.

The lottery opened on June 14 and the deadline to apply is Aug. 14. Those interested can apply by mail or online through the city’s Housing Connect system.

  1. I make too much for that. This sucks. I guess I have to slack off a bit or just go indie and collect bottles, cans and scrap metal.

    This affordable housing program is bullshit, and it is not sufficient to alleviate the housing needs of working poor people and even the middle class.

    • This whole program sucks on so many levels and the income ranges for the rent is way off. $1,065 a month for two people making between $36,503 and $45,840. Someone making that kind of money especially on the lower end, would have a hard time paying $1,065. Even at $45,840, you don’t have much left for too many other things, like necessities, not even frivolous shit every now and then. AND forget about trying to save any money for emergencies.

  2. Or even money for leisure activities. I haven’t seen a movie in a theater in 12 years. Not just for the reason that the majority of movies in that time span is garbage.

  3. Why is it that only half the units are priority for residents of CB12? It should be the whole building! CB12 has a large population of people that need affordable housing. Also, interesting that the developer that owns this building, D&F, is the same one that was a partner in the senior housing unit with Floyd Flake.
