Marineview Applications

In case you stumbled by 3rd & Hudson and were wondering what that crowd gathering over at Marineview Plaza is, the owners are developing a new “waiting list” for the low-rent apartments in those buildings. They’re handing out only 325 total applications tomorrow morning. The waiting list order will be determined by “lottery” at 10am on October 10, 2007.

Income “limit” for living in the most expensive unit ($1188.89/month) is $85,600 per year! The line is now around the block.

Here’s the ad in last weeks paper:

I would try the new building on Adams St. I appears to me that people were initially picked for that one based on who they know, but I recently heard from a resident that they are evicting some people. He should find out who is taking care of that waiting list.

Has he looked into whether he is eligible for a Section 8 voucher? Applied Housing has a very long waiting list for those, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

There are a lot of good hard working people struggling in the middle class in this town and the housing costs are a huge issue that is compounded by all the shenanigans that may be going on with the waiting lists for subsidized housing.

Interesting to note, over 55% of the population of Hoboken is qualified (based on income less than $86K) to live here.

These are like most “low income” apartments.. It’s who you know, did or will do to get one. 😯

You know that the city does not receive real estate taxes on this propery while providing the many services for its tenants, so yes we all subsidize this with our tax dollars.
