Can I rent an apartment in NYC with this on the credit report?

I've paid my back taxes for New York State as of last year, but the judgment is still on my credit reports, although marked "paid". This is my only ding. Will landlords refuse to rent to me anyway? [more inside]

Darling, I am sorry, but I lost my key! (another NYC apartment hunting ?)

2 years ago while looking for NYC apartments I came across an Upper East Side Broker's office that allowed me to leave my license and in return get a list of apartment rentals and keys to check them out that afternoon, by myself with no agent. Now I need to actually make the NYC move. Help me find a place that will do this? please? [more inside]

Help With Apartment Hunting in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Moving to New York from Florida to take a job at the beginning of January, and i'm having some trouble finding a good place to live, mostly that I don't really know how to find good places that aren't on craigslist/padmapper. The friend i'm going to live with works in Greenpoint, so we're leaning heavily on that neighborhood, just off the Greenpoint or Nassau stops, so only one of us has to take the subway to work.

It's too darn hot. How to cool off my studio apartment?

How can I cool off my NY studio apartment this summer? Our building has central air conditioning, and while it's cold enough when I sit right next to the unit, the rest of the apartment gets boiling hot. During today's heat wave, when it was 82 outside, a thermometer sitting on the unit read 70 degrees. On the other side of the room, it was more like 75, and on the other side of of the apartment, almost 80. The building doesn't allow window air conditioners. This is making living here really uncomfortable -- what else can I do to cool this place off? [more inside]

The recession slashed 200 dollars off new apartment rentals, so now I want to renegotiate my existing contract and avoid the increase that's set for next month.

As contractually agreed by me one year ago, my NYC apartment rent is going up 9% starting next month - from $2,250 to $2,450. But today I found out that, because of the recession, an apartment like mine is now going for $2,050. And now I want to renegotiate. How do I do that? [more inside]
