See DHCR Fact Sheet #4 - Lease Renewal at http://www.dhcr.state.ny.us/ora/pubs/html/orafac4.htm and note that the tenant has a right to renew the lease unless the landlord gave a notice of non-renewal 150 days to 90 days before the current lease expires.
There still may be a problem because your status seems to have changed from roommate to subtenant, because the tenant no longer lives in the apartment and also did not get the landlord's permission to sublet to you.
: I moved in as a roommate a year & a half ago to a rent stabalized building in Manhattan. I
signed a lease provided by my roommate but did
not sign one through our landlord.
: About 6 months ago, my roomate accepted a job
upstate NY but didn't want to legally sign over
the lease to me since she would keep her things
in her room and visit occassionally.
: The landlord recently caught wind of her not
living here 100% of the time and decided not to
renew the apartment lease when it is up in a
couple of weeks.
: Do I have any rights in this situation?
