6:05 pm
that eventually collects in the low-lying areas. a big, big problem. ernie: we've got a little rain in the forecast? nick: a couple of showers overnight. maybe about day break. other than that, we're okay. better day today. the humidity was down. ernie: much better. nick: more comfortable. 85 and 77 in new york city. a good day. little warm on the morning low. the average low should be 68. nowhere near records. the record high and record low of 95 and 56. did you hear thehu area. we had a hundredth of an inch in the city. 82. the humidity at 53 percent. the wind's out of the northwest at 9. it should be a dry evening. nothing really happening tonight. the action takes place overnight, more so the first part of tomorrow morning. it was mid 80s for the city and to the hudson valley, southern connecticut. no sea breeze today. wind coming out of the west and northwest. 87 at newark and islip and the east end. montauk, 82.

6:12 pm
affordable tough to define. watch. >> reporter: when people think about affordable housing, they think about apartments subsidized by the government. that's not always the case. the cost of living in manhattan is so high, that affordable housing programs are covering incomes high and low. >> the median rent in new york is more than $3,000. >> amy, the editor at curb new york, says that's why so many people are applying for affordable housing developers have been given incentives by mayor de administration to build more of it throughout the city. >> when the developer says we have apartments ready. we'll put them in the lottery system, they've earmarked typically about 20 percent of the housing in any particular building for affordable housing. >> reporter: affordable housing depends on income, neighborhood and on the developer. >> you can see affordable housing in new york is stretched so thin, especially when we're talking about market rate apartments which aren't
6:13 pm
one had 86 affordable apartments available and 56,000 applied. >> you have to make over $70,000 a year in order to apply for a studio or one bedroom apartment. the rent? more than $2,000. >> while it sounds kind of unbelievable to you and me like how can that be people who need to find affordable hous the case because it's so hard for all income brackets aside from the very, very wealthy to find affordable apartments. >> i went to college in baltimore and paid 626 a month for rent. that in new york city will get you a shoe box. >> reporter: to live comfortable, one shouldn't spend more than 30 percent of their income on rent. but that's not the case for new yorkers. >> a recent found that new yorkers are going to spend at
6:14 pm
>> reporter: i'm jessica formoso, fox 5 news. ernie: thank you very much. one of our regular guests is back. this is your beat. this is what you follow. and you certainly have been watching this. people are wondering is it really affordable housing? is that really what we can call it when you look at the numbers involved? >> there are some units defined as affordable where the applicants who win the units are making $120,000 for a family of four. make near 120,000. the fact is you can't have all your affordable units reserved for the very poor. if you concentrate poverty in one place, you end up with bad results. what you want is a mix of incomes. the city doesn't really have enough money to subsidize affordable housing for all of the very poor people. so it costs less to subsidize a middle class apartment. ernie: this has been a big push for the de blasio administration
6:15 pm
thousands of people trying to get these affordable apartments. your attitude is just keep going for it. even though you have all the competition? >> you have to be relentless. let's be honest. the odds of winning are one in a thousand. but you can apply to lots and lots. you can apply to a thousand over the years. you may win one and it may come in handy. so many are spending half of their income on rent or more than half. so they are one financial disa why not keep applying for the lotteries? the rent for these affordable units is no more than 30 percent of your income. that could be the cushion you need if you get into trouble. ernie: you talk to brokers. you can call 311 and the mayor's office for assistance. >> call 311. talk to your community board and get recommendations for organizations to walk you through the process. it is complicated.
6:16 pm
if your income is in a certain range and you have a certain family, you will qualify for some of these units, but you have to win them. ernie: does it look promising over the next five, 10 years? how's the future look? >> honestly -- the mayor sounds very optimistic when he talks about how many units he has created, affordable units. he has created record numbers of units. if you look at the broader new york city housing market, it's so tough. we have 8-1/2 million people. more than 3 million housi units. he's creating about 8,000 a year. ernie: a drop in the bucket. >> a drop in the bucket. it's a very small number. there are other programs outside of it you can get housing through and there are a million rent stabilized units. try to get those. ernie: good information. thank you for the advice. >> coming up next, our international food week continues with some of manhattan's best brazilian food. plus i've got a question for

my son has meningitis b. but how did we end up here? his mom thought he had the flu and that he was covered by the meningococcal meningitis vaccine he had received. until 2014 there were no vaccines for meningitis b in the u.s. now there are. while uncommon, meningitis b can lead to death within 24 hours. trumenba is a vaccine for 10 through 25 year olds to help prevent group b meningococcal disease. trumenba should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects were injection-site pain, fatigue... headache, muscle pain, and chills. ask your doctor or pharmacist about
6:19 pm
meningitis b can be spread by typical sharing like... a drink... a spoon... a kiss. it all started here... it might have been prevented with trumenba.

6:26 pm
>> i use the hand drier. ernie: you like the hand drier. why do you like that? >> quick dry and -- ernie: fast. just walk out. >> that's it. ernie: we're still asking the question. which do you prefer? >> i guess if it's one of those super driers that's really fast, i'll use that. but the paper towels are quicker. it just depends how much a hurry i'm in and where i'm heading. ernie: that makes sense. what do you prefer? >> i think because it's more -- it's better for the environment. ernie: oh, okay. >> which is important to me. yeah. ernie: you're careful about the environment, too. okay. >> i try to be. ernie: all right. take care, guys. we had a lot of reaction to that question. it was amazing. nick, you'll tell me, too. that's it for now. thank you for joining us tonight. for all of us in studio 5, our control room, big john, give us
