You need to expand your search. If your income is $77,000. and you have good credit, you should be able to find a rental without LINC in the Bronx, Staten Island and parts of Queens. You can also rent in better neighborhoods than Bed-Stuy & Crown Heights. Some good neighborhoods in the Bronx - Pelham Parkway, Allerton Ave., City Island, Eastchester Rd., Cruger Ave., Williamsbridge Rd., Bronx Park East, etc.

I would also try Nassau County. Your LINC voucher won't work but on a $77,000. income, you should find a rental that is affordable.

True, I just had a client she had a 544 Credit Score and Makes 110k.

She got denied A million Times so the best bet is just to repair your credit Landlords are scared of getting bad tenants that do not pay their bills.

And they do not want to go through the dreaded eviction Process.

Work on your credit score and everybody will be beggin for you guys.

Tim Moore answered:
One looks around the area where you are to see what others are paying and then the owner decides to ask for an amount. If 100 people apply then they know they asked to little. If no one applies, they know they asked too much. Then they adjust. Rent is all Supply and Demand. More demand = higher rent. ... more

Not sure how that would impact your insurance. Best to contact some insurance brokers directly.

Good Morning!
Only outside changes of your building, such as front facade, windows, doors, columns, architraves and other outside details, need a permission from Landmark for renovation.
If you need an architect who can help you with that, you always contact with me.
Good luck!

No, sorry to say.
You may find it in Crown Heights, that some will market as Prospect Heights.
Other areas to look is Prospect Park South & Ditmas Park or Sunset Park. All have good subway lines and some great apartments.
