3rd Ave & East 32nd St #14

Two-bedroom in Kips Bay, $2,500/month

This compact Kips Bay gem has plenty of recent renovations to make the place plenty worthy of becoming your new home. The kitchen offers a stainless steel gas stove, dishwasher and fridge, plus a pretty stone backsplash and marble countertop. It may be best suited to a family with one child, since the smaller bedroom seems a little tight. Nearby, you’ll find the 33rd St 6 train for easy travel around Manhattan, the NYU Langone Medical Center and St. Vartan’s Park for playtime with the kiddos.

Where can i register my grand child to take a swim class that are all taken up by the directors and employees informing their friends and families. I have been trying to put my child in a swim class with the YMCA for 14 Years . You see nothing but Caucasian  kids. What mommy and me swim class.Anything free is given to all of them. Someone let me enroll my grand child in a dance class or swim class. every time we try filled up . Try next time. I'm completely overwhelmed and turned off.

Who put this GARBAGE up . What family is this considered affordable for . NOT a AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY MAKING $47,000 annually . it's disgusting that our children can not even afford a simple dance class for our toddlers at 670.00 for 4 classes. this is not affordable housing for us. it is geared toward Caucasian families that can afford this. a single parent can not afford that . It's always going to be this way CHANGE WILL NEVER COME IF THIS IS THE MENTALITY FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING .
