Why do you keep a pad in New York if you live and own a business in Massachusetts ? You're just holding onto an apartment you don't need becuase the rent is artificially cheap to you. Its clowns like you (along with the politicians who advocate this) who have caused the housing crises this city has.

This is a tenant board, so I advise you to do what will benefit tenants: Immediately vacate your apartment and inform the landlord you will no longer live there. Landlord will fix the place up and rent it for big $$$, hopefully reinvesting some of his profits in other developments elsewhere. But more importantly, a tenant will have housing who otherwise wouldn't.

What's that ? You don't want to give up your sweet deal ? Fine, hold onto it even though you don't need it. Eventually you will pass away ... and some future landlord will do just what I've said.
