Applications are now open to snag an affordable housing unit in a Forest Hills apartments complex.

Applicants are vying for a place on a wait list in a 430-unit affordable housing complex at 62-27 108th St.

Most of the affordable units are currently occupied, and winners will get a chance to move in when an apartment becomes vacant. Two of the 430 units are set aside for the building superintendents.

The buildings are managed by the nonprofit Phipps Houses, the oldest and largest nonprofit developer in New York City.

The lottery lists 35 studios, 142 one-bedrooms, 179 two-bedrooms, and 72 three-bedroom units. The rent starts at $1,462 a month for a single person in a studio— available to lottery winners who make between $50,126 and $73,100 a year. 

The upper limit is $2,170 a month for a three to six-person family in a 3 bedroom unit. Such a family must make a minimum of $74,400 a year but no more than $121,000 a year to qualify.

Applications must be submitted by Sep. 10. A preference will be given to residents of New York City, according to NYC Housing Connect.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
