Just ask the landlord hes required to tell you the numbers that it
was for your apartment. other then that, perhaps, call the power company
and ask them what apartment number was listed for your meter before
you moved in .Also, you cam read the file from DHCR under FOIL
the freedom of information law . you can go there in person and read
the whole file for your building. and if not under FOIL they
are required to find it for you for just such reasons as your
explaing. Thats why the Freedom of information law was created
in the first plave in the 1960's to prevent fraud.DHCR has to have a file
for all the apartments in your building, even before he changed the
numbers.Acll the phone company to they might have a listing of the apartment
number from bilss of former tenants or cable companies.

: After doing some renovations in my building, the landlord changed the apartment numbers to letters (and raised the rents by triple in some cases). When I went to DHCR to find the rent history on my place, they could only give me the current rent and nothing earlier.
: I could use the older rent history but DHCR says this os all that's on their computers.
: Any suggestions how I can get the earlier history?
: Thanks for any help. Really.
