We're responding to both your emails here. You seem to have some

: try 156 william street 9fl
That's DHCR enforcement. They will not do anything because she is not a
tenant in occupancy and they don't deal with discriminationn issues.
It's beyond their jurisdiction. Even if it were,
DHCR is notorious for giving landlords green lights.
: or call mayor action line they area in chamber street nyc downtown
If you need to talk to someone but don't expect much "action".

The "Tan Book" is a good book (essential for a real tenant advocate), but it is
just text of various laws (none dealing with discrimination) -- and we have
the important laws online here anyway.
The best place is the NYC Human Rights Commission.
