: Is it possible that my landlord misled me when I signed my lease,
No: we have no dishonest landlords in New York City: they are all saints who provide more than enough heat and never never overcharge us.
: and that my unit is actually rent stabilized as well?
Probably is, regardless of what your landlord says or what amount of rent you pay. Frequent scam: "renovate" then illegally charge the next schmoo >$200 & tell him it's legal!
: How can I find out whether it is stabilized or free-market?
Read about this subject here and on the homepage. Call DHCR 718.739.6400.. and get a "rent history" and an overcharge fact sheet. Bring both to your local tenant clionic to decipher.
