I'm not sure about the answer to your question, which requires legal knowledge I don't have.
But I do think your premise is incorrect. With the rental market being as it is in NYC -- particularly for stabilized apts. -- I doubt very much that it will take a few months to find a new tenant. The LL will probably be able to replace you right away. If he does, you are totally in the clear, I think.
Also, why not try to sublease the apt.?
: I am about to vacate a rent stabilized apartment in NYC with about 20 months to go on the lease. The LL will increase the rent substantially for the new tenant. Assume that it takes a few months to find a new tenant. When the LL comes after me for the rent for those months, will I be able to apply the amount of any increase that the new tenant is paying against those damages?
