In NYS, you have the absolute right to assign your lease (find a replacement). If your landlord refuses consent unreasonably, you are released from the obligation to pay the remaining months. You have to follow the correct procedure. Read more about it here: search for 'assign' or for RPL 226-b (that's the law itself).
Other states require the landlord to 'mitigate damages': honestly look for a replacement, not just sit and wait to sue you. Search here for your state's name and go to TenantNet Home, Other States in right column. http://tenant.net/
