Here's the deal with all of the "affordable" housing projects being offered in and around NYC. They all use a so-called lottery to choose tenants, and they all get thousands (if not tens of thousands) of applicants for usually fewer than 100 apartments in each project. The system of how these lotteries actually operate is extremely closed to the public. They're not FCFS, not drawn in public view and no one seems to be forthright about how people are actually chosen. The need for housing for the elderly and indigent is overwhelming and these offerings are less than a drop in the bucket.
