AN ACT authorizing the city of New York  to  reconvey  its  interest  in
  certain  real  property  acquired  by  in  rem  tax foreclosure in the
  borough of Bronx to former owner St. Peter's Lutheran Church, notwith-
  standing expiration of the two year period  within  which  application
  may  be  made  to  the  city  to release its interest in property thus
  acquired; Block No.  2285, Lot No. 73 on tax map for  the  borough  of
  Bronx

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Findings. On September 25, 1981, through a Bronx in rem tax
foreclosure action, the city of New  York  acquired  title  to  premises

inadvertence  by  St.  Peter's Lutheran Church, the former owner of such
property. Pursuant to sections 11-424 and 11-424.1 of the administrative
code of the city of New York, the city may release its interest in prop-

the  city's  department  of  citywide administrative services within two
years of the date on which the city's  deed  is  recorded  and  if  such
application  is  approved by the in rem foreclosure release board. Since
that period has now elapsed, and pending the effectiveness of a  chapter
of  the laws of 2011 authorizing the in rem foreclosure release board to
authorize the release of property where an application for such  release
is  made  more  than  two years after the date of the city's acquisition
thereof, state legislation is necessary to restore said property to  the
aforesaid  former  owner.  In  addition, since the New York city charter
requires that the sale of city owned property be at public auction or by
