You have no "rights" other than whatever agreement you made with the coop shareholder

This situation may not be ideal for you, but its not illegal either. You agreed to pay the rent that you did; whatever the coop unit's maintainence fee is or the fact that your roommate has a bigger bedroom than you is irrelevant.

Do not confuse this situation with a subtenant in a rent stabilized apartment. You have no special "rights" other than what you agreed to with the owner, and if those aren't in writing (a lease) you are for all purposes a month to month tenant.

Since you're unhappy with the situation I would advise you to look for an apartment of your own elsewhere.
