In a proceeding pursuant to Not-For-Profit Corporation Law § 511 for leave to sell certain real property, the appeal is from an order of the Supreme Court, Suffolk County (Whelan, J.), dated August 7, 2007, which, inter alia, granted the petition and authorized the sale.

WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P., REINALDO E. RIVERA, MARK C. DILLON and THOMAS A. DICKERSON, JJ.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed as academic, without costs or disbursements.
Since the property which is the subject of this proceeding has been sold to a bona fide purchaser for value during the pendency of this appeal, and since the appellant failed to obtain a stay pursuant to CPLR 5519 to prevent the property from being sold, the relief sought by the appellant is no longer available and the rights of the parties will not be directly affected by the resolution of this appeal (see Matter of Hearst Corp. v Clyne, 50 NY2d 707). Accordingly, this appeal has been rendered academic (see 405 44th St. Realty Co. v 168 Fortune Realty, Inc., 14 AD3d 481; Matter of Congregation Bnei Yoel v Monroe-Woodbury Cent.

The appellant's remaining contention is not properly before this Court.
MASTRO, J.P., RIVERA, DILLON and DICKERSON, JJ., concur.
