Should I consider moving out of my apartment?

I’ve been living in my cozy basement apartment for 4 years – I LOVE it and my landlord isn’t charging me a lot, in comparison to what a one bedroom apartment goes for in NYC.
However, I’m having a slew of water problems – leaks, pipe backups, water problems…Most of the issues the landlord has fixed, but more and more things are happening- it’s an old house and I know the walls and pipes are breaking down.

Should I consider moving and possibly paying a higher rent? Or stay where I am and deal with these issues being constantly fixed since I really love the apartment as a whole?
I’ve considered the fact that even new houses have floods and I might have worse problems elsewhere – how should I outweigh my options?
