    Call them and ask them why they think you owe them money.

    You best contact the housing authority immediately and explain your position. New York City has a unique rental policy where $2,500/month apartments rent for $400/month under grandfather clauses.

    As of late, and due to the economy, many tenants are being sued for underpayment of rent. You need an attorney that is familiary with these unusual laws. Good Luck!

    You are assuming that is the issue. OP has presented no claim as to substance of the claim.
