: In NYC does a person have to get permission from or inform his landlord of his (the sublettor) intentions to sublet an apartment?
Yes, if rent-regulated or if it is in your lease. Read whichever applies. NOTE: 'sublet' means you don't live there anymore.

:What about the sharing of an apartment? Does the person whose name is on the lease have the right to allow someone else to share the apartment with them without notifying the landlord?
Yes, for all tenants. But if the landlord asks, you must provide the roommate(s) name(s) within 30 days. (is it 30? look it up: search in this forum for 'roommate law')
