Let's analysize just a bit of what you wrote:

: I just received a huge rent increase (35%) that we really can't afford.
--Maybe someone else can.

: I just had a baby

: I've put up with 2 winters of shoddy heat, leaky roofs and pipes, rotten wood floors, missing bathroom tiles, holes in the walls and ceilings
--You chose to put up with quite a lot.

:I would have to move to a very bad area in order to afford something, and as a professional with 2 small children, i'm not willing to do that.
-- Too bad. What's a "very bad area" to you ? Many professionals with small children live in what you probably consider "bad areas" like the South Bronx, Harlem, and Bed-Stuy. Guess you think you are above everyone else. What entitlement do you have to live in a certain neighborhood ?

:Can I try to lower the rent increase in court
--Yeah right. Pay lawyers big $$$, lose in court, and still get evicted and a judgement against yourself.

: I don't know what to do.
--Pay up ... or leave.
