Penn south lottery

Dreamernyc & Incog79, thank you!

To follow up, it sounds like you both had multiple viewing appointments? (Unless I am misunderstanding?) If you don’t like either of the apartments shown to you, can you wait for more to become available?

Sorry for the many questions!

I have to look at our old paperwork for the exact wording but after a viewing round, you fill out a sheet where you indicate , if offered the apartment, will you accept or decline it.

They make it very clear that if you reject two offered apartments, then you are off the waiting list.

I would add that there really isn’t that much variation in the apartments, or at least not enough to justify waiting for a better one. You might luck out and get one that was previously renovated, one with a nice view or one that is closer to the subway, but (a) the baseline quality of any apartment is high enough that unless someone has a really great/affordable place right now they are probably better off moving into PS as soon as possible and then putting themselves on the internal waiting list for a ‘better’ one (after they’ve been there for three years) and (b) the ‘better’ ones usually go to internal transfers anyway. In my case I did pass on the first studio I was offered, but that was only because it was one of the really small ones (no sleeping area and no eat-in kitchen) and two of us were going to live there. Had I been offered a normal size studio or it was just me I would have taken it, and would have been in PS six months earlier.

Most people seem to go through at least two or three rounds of viewing apartments before they are offered one, but I don’t know if that pattern will continue. When the 2014 lottery occurred there were many people on the list who had been on it for several years, increasing the chance that they either were ineligible or not interested when their number finally came up. When I moved in (2016), I was seventh in line, and ALL of the apartments I saw were offered to me, so all six of the people ahead of me either passed or didn’t qualify. With the shorter waits for 2014 and (probably) 2019 applicants, I think a higher percentage of people will take the apartments offered to them and PS will start to invite fewer people to view available apartments. On the other hand, most if not all of the six people ahead of me were probably also 2014 applicants, so maybe I’m completely wrong about this.
