I received an eviction notice in New York. I think I have six days to act. What is my next step to file for an extension?

Dear Brooklyn Tenant:
Your next step is to stop the City Marshal from executing the warrant of eviction. The City Marshal will not know about your "verbal agreement" to extend the time to pay, and neither will the Court, unless you do something to bring this agreement to the attention of the Marshal and the Court.

Of course, if you could convince the landlord to write down the agreement, you will stand a better chance to convince the judge that you have a deal with the landlord and the eviction should be stopped.
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
