IN RE FREDDY G., A PERSON ALLEGED TO BE A JUVENILE DELINQUENT, APPELLANT.
Order of disposition, Family Court, New York County (Mary E. Bednar, J.), entered on or about September 18, 2008, which adjudicated appellant a juvenile delinquent, upon a fact-finding determination that he committed acts which, if committed by an adult, would constitute the crimes of robbery in the third degree, grand larceny in the fourth degree, criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree, and menacing in the third degree, and placed him on probation for a period of 12 months, unanimously affirmed, without costs.

Friedman, J.P., Sweeny, Freedman, Abdus-Salaam, JJ.
The court's fact-finding determination was based on legally sufficient evidence and was not against the weight of the evidence (see People v Danielson, 9 NY3d 342, 348-349 ). There is no basis for disturbing the court's determinations concerning credibility and identification. The victim's testimony established that he had a sufficient opportunity to observe appellant at the time of the robbery, and that he was able to recognize him when he encountered him several weeks later.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
