June 23, 2008 03:41PM

Long Island City’s Hunters Point South development plans to make 60 percent of the 5,000 units affordable housing, available to families of four making $55,000 to $158,000 a year, and individuals with incomes of at least $35,000 a year. Housing advocates want the apartments to be more affordable, as LIC’s average income for a family of four is $44,000. Community Board 2 planned to vote on the project today.
