So it’s been exactly 6 weeks since I started sleeping at the crack hotel. In that time, My housing application for Harmony House has been returned without explanation, the housing specialist at the crack hotel, when ask about what was going on with my case said, “Wait a minute! You’re suppose to be on Ms. X’s caseload!”, the very earnest young man at Housing Works said he knew a guy who had “… new one bedroom apartments in the Bronx!” That was the last I heard from him.
I have been to see exactly zero apartments and I just went on Craigslist and found literally hundreds of apartments in HASA’s price range.
I have an appointment on the 29th with the HRA psychiatrist for the NY, NY 1,2, or 3, apartments which I will keep. Oh, both the housing specialist at HASA and the housing specialist at the crack hotel are insistent that I qualify for the NY, NY 3 housing. The earnest, young man at Housing Works assured me I wasn’t.
April 1 I start cold calling Craigslist apartments.
