Retain an attorney. I would say that if you've been living there for 12 years, your tenancy should be considered "open and notorious", meaning the fact you've been living there for so long is obvious. The building staff knows who you are. To Whom do you pay your rent?. You could/should also be considered the "tenant of record" since the primary tenant is an illusiory prime tenant. Your lengthy tenancy there is in your favor for obtaining the primary lease. You could become the first rent stabilized tenant for that apt, but you will most certainly need a good lawyer. If you become the tanant of record, the rent will increase by a significant amount.
