With the exception of very specific reasons/causes, (landlord wants property for himself/immediate family, you're in breach of serious terms of your lease, etc.), the lanldord must offer you a renewal on your lease. Even if you wihhold rent and go to court for legitimate reasons, the same applies (I speak from personal experience as well as information gathered from various DHCR and HPD resources).
You were supposed to have received your renewal notice at least 120 days before your current lease expires.
If it's getting close to the expiration of your current lease, forget about DHCR and HPD and get in touch with the landlord directly, in writing, sent certified, return receipt and keep copies. If it gets too close for comfort to the expiration date, head for the courts to bring it to someon's attention.
