A new rental development on the east end of Avenue D between 6th and 7th streets has launched an affordable housing lottery for 28 new units. The good news for NYC apartment hunters is that the eligible income range allows for low- and middle-earners, too. Rents for the new building at 79 Ave. D range from $596 for a studio up to $2,519, with 11 units all renting for less than $1,400.

Those 11 apartments are for tenants earning between $22,320 and $33,400 per year, which is 40 percent of the area median income. Another 11 will go to households earning between $35,554 and $72,600, or 60 percent AMI. Meanwhile, six apartments are earmarked for households earning at 130 percent of the AMI, or between $68,790 and $135,590.
