DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order of disposition is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The Family Court properly exercised its discretion in adjudicating the appellant a juvenile delinquent rather than a person in need of supervision (see Family Ct Act § 311.4; Matter of Michael OO, 53 AD3d 709; Matter of Angelo L., 240 AD2d 669).
SPOLZINO, J.P., DILLON, CARNI and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
