New York Supreme and/or Appellate Courts SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE TERM, SECOND DEPARTMENT, 2d, 11th and 13th JUDICIAL DISTRICTS
April 4, 2012
SIRUL REALTY CORP.,
SUSAN SILVERSTEIN, RESPONDENT, -AND- "JOHN DOE" AND "JANE DOE," UNDERTENANTS.
Appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Kings County (John S. Lansden, J.), entered March 7, 2011. The order, insofar as appealed from, upon granting landlord's motion to restore the matter to the calendar for the entry of a final judgment and issuance of a warrant, conditionally stayed the execution of the warrant. The appeal is deemed to be from so much of a final judgment of the same court entered March 7, 2011 as, upon awarding possession to landlord, conditionally stayed the execution of the warrant (see CPLR 5512 [a]).

PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., GOLIA and ALIOTTA, JJ
ORDERED that the final judgment, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed, without costs.
In the circumstances presented, including the fact that tenant's default under the stipulation settling this chronic-nonpayment holdover proceeding occurred after 18 months of her strict compliance therewith, and was occasioned by severe weather and tenant's advanced age and infirmity, the Civil Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion in conditionally staying the execution of the warrant (see 1215 Realty Assoc., LLC v Thomas, 32 Misc 3d 131[A], 2011 NY Slip Op 51320[U] [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2011]; cf. 2246 Holding Corp. v Nolasco, 52 AD3d 377 ).
Accordingly, the final judgment, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed.
Pesce, P.J., Golia and Aliotta, JJ., concur.
