You can explain any extenuating circumstances on your application. I would definitely put some of that stuff down, as schools should know if significant personal events affected your grades. I'm not sure if you should write about it as your main essay; it will require a lot of tact to do that properly.
Also, talk to your guidance counselor and let him/her know what's going on in your life. They can do a lot more in terms of mediating with schools and making sure the adcoms know what happened to your grades.

you will NEVER get anywhere with those scores...let's be honest here. in a world where 4/10 SAT takers score 1300 or above, you need some monstrous extracurriculars or to be a minority. and youre asian so good luck getting some affirmative action points. i got 1550 on the sat i and 800s on 5 of the sat 2s but i still only got into tulane. good luck enwhyyou.

you have a chance, its not high but its not terrible. I mean were talking NYU not Harvard, its not nearly as difficult to get in. Also, there is more to life than SAT scores, thats why Exxonboy32 only got into Tulane, he has yet to realize that. Just make sure you put together some rock solid essays and tie everything up in a resume and you may have a decent shot. Lastly, make sure to explain all your extenuating circumstances. Admission officers are humans not machines, they can understand these kinds of things. I would definitly try and apply, you never know when luck may swing your way.

And yes, don't listen to Exxonboy32 because he is trashing everyone. Look at his comment in "do you have a pic"

Exxonboy32, you are tripping. 40% of students DO NOT get a 1300 or above. Only like four people at my school have scored above 1300. We may be disappointed with not getting like a 1520 but don't even make a cocky-ass statement like that because the majority of students don't do as well as this board does. Two people in my AP English class have a 1000 or below. And these are AP kids even.
Stop making people ansy.
