    1. I have also submitted an application through NYC Housing Connect and would be utterly thrilled to be able to live there. I, too, am frustrated because my profile does say I am a senior and disabled, but does not say I am an artist.

      I visited P.S. 109. It is still under construction, but the only phone number is for the construction company (718-522-1981)

      I cannot find out how to contact other than writing this and getting on their mailing list. I just checked the NYC Housing Connect site, and found that you can put in Artist under:
      “update the Household Member Information section in Step 3 of Edit Profile/Create Profile”.
