I did go to the police. I was told that the first act of my landlord 2 1/2 years was a crime and I should have come to them.
Also they took the latest harassments and took a look at the 30-day notice and letter my landlord had given me. They said that these were not legal notices as they do not have an agent of the court stamp or signature. Actually they are forms of harassment.
Went to DHCR and was told that in 2-family houses the landlord can do whatever he wants, he does not have to make repairs and he can charge whatever he can get. DHCR does not handle 2-family house matters.
Went to housing department they don't see you until you have been served with a notice for an eviction.
It looks like my landlord has not yet nor does not intend to file on me.
He wants to move in his girlfriends furniture to the basement should I allow this? Is it okay to stall him.
I don't want to tell him he has given me an invalid document as the more time I have the better for me. Is that okay to do?

: As for the eviction, it appears you are a month-to-month tenant which
: does not give you a whole lot of rights, but he would still need to
: take you to court to evict you, and you might be able to tie that up
: for a month or two while you are looking for a new place. You also
