The New York Law Journal's September 15th online edition reports the case of ROXBOROUGH APTS. CORP. v. BECKER, where a housing court judge allowed a single tenant to have three roommates. Although Real Property Law §235-f allows only one roommate (occupant), the lease quoted uses the word "occupants" -- in the plural.
The lease provision quoted in the decision is from the standard apartment leases of the Real Estate Board of New York. If this decision stands, tenants with this very common lease form may be able to have more than one roommate.
