You must to look into your lease and see if your landlord is able to do it,
Usually rent prices should not be raised this much, at cretin places there is a set percentage that you can raise the rent for.
Check with your local relator or simply call 311 and ask they will give you the best answer

Also if you live in a co-op or condo building that also does Not fall under rent stabilization laws

Do you live in a rent-stabilized building? A rent-stabilized building has 6 units or more. If you live in a rent-stabilized building your landlord can legally only raise your rent by a certain percentage each year (e.g 5 % for 1 year or 7 % for 2 years - it varies each year)

A lot of the rentals in Astoria are in smaller 2 or 3 families houses and so can raise the rent to whatever they feel like it once your lease is up as long as they give 30 days written notice

Is this a small building or house? This seems unreasonably high. Perhaps I missed something.
