DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The defendants established their prima facie entitlement to judgment as a matter of law by submitting the deposition testimony of the parties which established the absence of evidence of a defective or dangerous condition (see Puma v New York City Tr. Auth., 55 AD3d 585; DeSantis v Lessing's, Inc., 46 AD3d 742; Golba v City of New York, 27 AD3d 524; Przybyszewski v Wonder Works Constr., 303 AD2d 482). In opposition to the motion, the plaintiff failed to raise a triable issue of fact as to the existence of a dangerous or defective condition (see generally Alvarez v Prospect Hosp., 68 NY2d 320, 324). Although the plaintiff alleged that the lighting at the location of her fall was inadequate at the time of the incident, she neither testified at her deposition nor stated in her affidavit submitted in opposition to the summary judgment motion that she tripped as a result of inadequate illumination (see DiGeorgio v Morotta, 47 AD3d 752, 752-753; Leib v Silo Rest., Inc., 26 AD3d 359, 360; Curran v Esposito, 308 AD2d 428, 429). Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly granted the defendants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
