SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT
October 8, 1968
IN THE MATTER OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, APPELLANT, RELATIVE TO ACQUIRING TITLE TO REAL PROPERTY, REQUIRED FOR THE NEW 48TH POLICE PRECINCT STATION HOUSE BOUNDED BY THE SOUTH SERVICE ROAD CROSS BRONX EXPRESSWAY BETWEEN PARK AVENUE EAST AND WASHINGTON AVENUE, IN THE BOROUGH OF THE BRONX. BENJAMIN HASKELL & SON, INC. RESPONDENT
Concur -- Botein, P. J., Stevens, Eager, Capozzoli and Macken, JJ.
This proceeding is concerned with damage parcels 3 and 6 owned by respondent. The award being vacated is for signs advertising respondent's business painted on the walls of adjoining buildings not owned by respondent and contained within other damage parcels of this over-all condemnation proceeding. While there may well be other meritorious reasons why the award should be vacated, by no stretch of the imagination may the signs be considered fixtures of the parcels here involved.
Decree entered February 1, 1968 as appealed from unanimously modified on the law by vacating the award for Item 19 of respondent's fixtures claim and otherwise affirmed, without costs or disbursements to either party.
