The New York Police Department Patrol Guide, Procedure No. 117-11, Unlawful Evictions, is intended for the NYPD to help to restore people who have been illegally evicted. It is not authority for the NYPD to evict people.

The woman who started this long thread created her own problems. Roommate situations can always have difficulties. She should have moved into the new apartment and got the feel of things. If things seemed to going fine (not that they can't change in the future), she could have tried to legally sublet her old apartment. Maybe she would have lost her share of a month's rent at her old place, but look at the situation that she, her caught-in-the-middle roommate, and her illegal subtenant are in now.
