NEW YORK (AP) - An agreement has been reached to protect nearly 1,000 affordable apartments in Harlem.

City officials say the deal benefits current and future residents of the Riverton Houses.

Ex-Mayor David Dinkins, a former resident of the complex, calls Riverton “part of Harlem’s soul.”

Officials say an overleveraged sale in 2006 left the complex in jeopardy. Its sale to a new owner ensures the working and middle-class community will remain protected through 2046.

Douglas Eisenberg of A&E; Real Estate says the community has beautiful grounds, along with great access to public transportation and neighborhood amenities.
