If you have a receipt or cancelled check or written statement of some kind from the LL proving that you issued a security deposit to the LL and how much it was, and you can also prove that no damage was done to the apartment, you get your security deposit back, and if you don't you can go to small claims court to get it back with interest.
If you have the above type of documentation and you end up staying there with the new LL"s permisson (see my earlier post on what some options might be), then your old LL is supposed to give your security deposit to the new owner of the property.
Ace is right churches and schools are good places to look for apts. Maybe you can put a notice on the bulletin boards or in the church newsletter, or make a flyer stating that you are looking for an apt., how much you can pay, etc., and post it in the neighborhood. You can put it in laundromats, grocery stores, etc., but the BEST place to put a flyer looking for a new place to stay is any place where a homeowner might go to buy renovation supplies, for example, a hardware or paint store, or your local Home Depot or something. Sometimes, you can post an "apt wanted" ad in your local community newspaper for free or at low cost. HPD has apartment listings, too. Check www.nyc.gov/hpd for the number to call for city apartment listings.
