: My landlord just placed two smokers sharing a studio below me. The building was converted from a house to 4 units and the smoke comes up through the pipe and the cracks in teh floor. Building is NOT rent stabilized. Standard NY lease. What are my rights?

Rights re single family house converted to 4 units: are you sure the conversion is legal? (not legal could mean no rent due) What does the Certificate of Occupancy say? Read this:
