you did not say where this old apt was. hard to suggest solutions for apts on Mars or Pluto.
anyway: gary is right: after the tenant's failure to show up in a residential nonpayment proceeding, the landlord must obtain a default judgment. to do this, the landlord must demonstrate that an investigation was conducted to determine whether the tenant is either in the military or a dependant of a person in the service. (attorney affidavit). New York Military Law 303(3); 50 USCA 520(1)
to read more, goto the housing court section on tenant.net and type military into the search bar.
any half competent attorney can get this default overturned, which would get the judgement off your record. you can probably do it yourself. if in NYC, start with the free Pro Se attorney in the courthouse; if Manhattan, go Thurs evening.
