You Can Apply for a $613 Apartment in Chelsea
Yeah, you read that right… that’s an apartment in Chelsea for the ludicrously low price of $615. How can you get a Manhattan pad for that price? We have the all the details right here. Don’t miss out.

If you’re looking for cheap digs, you’re probably not considering a move to New York City. One of the biggest reasons that New Yorkers flock away from the city is in search of a lower cost of living.  On Friday, an affordable housing lottery open up for a group of apartments in Manhattan… and they are cheap enough to make you reconsider that move to the suburbs.

The units up for grabs, 63 in total, are in a brand new building in Chelsea (515 West 36th Street) ranging between $613 per month to $2,733.

It is unheard of to see rent at that price in New York City… let alone Manhattan. There are 18 units going for under $700 for those earning between $22,903 and $30,560.

The building, although it states Chelsea, is actually part of the Hudson Yards development on the West Side.

You have until April 3 to submit your application, HERE, and you’ll have to be quick because they won’t accept late submissions. After April 3 the applications are selected for review through a lottery process. If yours is chosen you will be invited to an interview to determining your eligibility. Interviews are usually scheduled from 2 to 10 months after the application deadline and you’ll have to bring documents that verify the info on your application. Good luck!
