I read @ Housingnyc
that "[SIZE=1]You are entitled to request permission to sublet from the owner, and the owner may not unreasonably refuse such permission"
Correct me if I'm wrong but that does NOT mean they have to allow it.
What is the best way to sub lease a rent stab. apt?
What does the law allow?
Thanks in advance.

I'm no authority, but common sense would dictate that the first two steps would be reading the rent stabilization regulations on subletting (I believe there's a maximum) and writing a preliminary letter to your landlord.

I did read it, but I'm a little unsure if the landlord can refuse to allow me.
When I called them last week they said they would not discuss the matter with me.
Not very helpful I know.

I think you can legally sublet for a limited period,like 1 year.You cannot sublet at a profit.There has to be a sublease,approved by the landlord, with the stated rent identical to the rent on your lease.Any other arrangement would be illegal.
Landlords frequently "go after" people who move out of and sublet stabilized/controlled apartments illegally and sometimes have cameras placed on the apartment doors to document what is going on or hire detectives to follow the primary tenant to prove they actually live elsewhere.This is no joke.I know a couple of people who have gone through this.Generally,it's not worth the hassle unless you are genuinely going to return to the apartment.
