Hi again -- I found this on post from a few days ago, might just answer your question on the retaliation issue:

Real Property Law 223-b bars retaliatory evictions. The law applies to all residential premises in New
York state, except owner-occupied buildings with fewer than four units. If you made your complaints to
HPD within the last six months, the landlord would have to disprove the law's rebuttable presumption of

In any event, you don't have to move until a judge orders you to move. Even if the landlord could prove
that the eviction wasn't retaliatory, the housing court judge can give you up to six months to move.
