: Of course he can keep the deposit.....he agreed for you to stay untill the end of the lease and YOU didnt......

Not necessarily. The landlord just can't take the guy's money. He may lose the security deposit but maybe not. Maybe the landlord can find a short-term tenant. Maybe the tenant can sublease the apartment. Lots of people need apartments for the short haul. Hells Kitchen is near midtown. If it is a desirable building, it will be snapped up quickly.

Don't give the guy advice if you don't know what you're talking about.
