Landlord refusing to repair (rent stabilized Astoria apt)

Posted by Lara on December 07, 1999 at 15:17:26:

Last week, I was in my bathroom having just finished a shower when my bathroom window broke.
It was on a particular cold day, and I think the heat from the shower and the cold
from the outside created a problem. Either way, I was no where near the window,
and hadn't touched it. When my super came to look at it, he refused to believe
I hadn't done anything to it, and told me to speak to the landlord directly about
repairs. The landlord responded by accusing me of breaking it, then trying to
get him to repair it. He said there was no way the window could have broken
this way. He's planning on having it repaired, then billing me for it. What, if
anything, can I do about this?

Also, there is a clause in my lease that allows the landlord unlimited access to
the apartment even for basic repairs. Is this legal?
