I shouldn't be answering this, but here goes:

NYC is one of the most pro renter cities in the country. At times, it seems like the renter has more rights than the owner. If a tenant goes to tenant/landlord court and says they cannot afford to move at this time, the court will take whatever rent they have to pay each month for 6-8 months or more, put it in an escrow account and give it back to the tenant to help them move while all this time they can live for free where they currently are.

You can extend the time to eviction, but ultimately you need to pay or leave. Consider trying for section 8 assistance from the city.
