HELP, Landlord Is Withholding Mail!!!

Posted by Rylin on May 07, 1998 at 15:06:14:

Okay, this is the situation...
...I'm sub-leasing an apartment in NYC from a friend of mine who is
currently studying abroad. Somehow, the landlord found out that I'm
living in the apartment and wants me out by the end of the month,
because I'm not the person on the lease. Fine.
....However, all of a sudden, he installed new mailboxes, and has
refused to give me the key, because I'm not the legal tenant.

Isn't withholding someone's mail a Federal offense?
Even though I'm not the legal tenant, isn't there anything I can do???

Any insight or information on this would be so gratefully appreciated!!
