I recently signed a 1 year lease ending January 31, 2002 for a new apartment. I am a 9 to 5er, and I've just realized I've moved into a building completely occupied by 20 year old party animals who come stomping home at 3,4,5, and 6 am, seven days a week, and blast rock music at all hours. Sleeping, for me, is therefore unreliable, at best. I get woken up at all hours, or can't get to sleep because of the noise. I can't come in there and tell the whole building to be quiet, so I will have to move.
Is it fairly easy to get out of a lease in NYC, especially considering how easily rents can be raised when an occupant leaves? Alternately, do most landlords permit subletting in NYC?
