|Affordable Housing for Actors, Artists Opens in Yonkers!|
Applications for Low-Cost Housing Being Accepted
As reported last year, a new performance space and living quarters for artists has been created as part of a large-scale revitalization of downtown Yonkers. The Greyston Foundation, with the assistance of the City of Yonkers and St. John's Church has renovated historic Philipsburgh Hall, originally built in 1904, incorporating artists studios, a 10,000 square foot performance space, and 28 apartments available to performing artists.
Studio rentals range from $650 to $850 per month. Each studio contains a living room/bedroom, eat-in kitchen, bathroom, wooden floors, heating and air-conditioning and other amenities.
Actors and other performing artists who are interested should contact the Greyston Foundation at 914-376-3900, ext. 222, or visit www. greyston.org. Income limits apply (a maximum of $38,400 for an individual and a maximum of $43,860 for a couple per year) and an interview and documentation is required.
