If you were in New York all the time since you moved out of the apartment, the six-year statute of limitations for a contractual obligation has already expired, but you must plead the statute of limitations as a defense.

It's also strange that you're being sued in Supreme Court for less than $2,300. Normally, Supreme Court handles cases involving more than $25,000, while Civil Court handles cases involving less than $25,000.

You've raised other good potential defenses in your message, but they would probably require discovery and inspection to prove. The statute of limitations seems like your best defense.
