musician discrimination

Posted by Dan on May 21, 1997 at 14:07:02:

I am a bass violinist who earns a large amount of his livelihood through performance.
I recently answered an ad for a share in Park Slope and was accepted by the
lease holder of a two-bedroom apartment. As far as I am aware, it is within the
existing tenant's rights to take on a roommate (while the lease remains in
his or her name). But the landlords of this particular building made a huge
fuss about having a practicing musician in the building and basically told the
current tenant that he COULDN'T accept me as a roommate...
Could someone tell me if this is legal or not?
