The monthly rental charges will vary, too (see the chart above), but these figures represent some of the more inclusive criteria for an NYC housing lottery.

The West Farms Apartments are part of a redevelopment plan that has helped revitalize this section of the Bronx. The area encompasses 17 acres and has brought new housing and community development to this formerly underutilized manufacturing district.

Qualified applicants can apply online via the NYC Housing Connect site. To request an application by mail, send a self-addressed envelope to: West Farms Apartments c/o The Wavecrest Management Team, 87-14 116th St., Richmond Hill, NY 11418. Applications must be postmarked or submitted online no later than Jan. 5, 2018.
