This is New York, I take it?
My question is, what did you sign in the way of a contract, and did they cash your check? Were you assigned the lease? Even if not--what the hell, sue.
This is one of those disputes which are too small to interest a lawyer. So your best bet is to carefully tote up your damages and sue in small claims court. The judge will determine if you have a case. I really can't think of any better alternative. You cannot force these rats to give you an apartment.
Now I really hope that somebody doesn't post "you shoulda done this or you shoulda done that and it's a life lesson." Give this pour soul a break.
