N.Y. Public Housing Law Section 124
Grant or lease of property by a government to or for an authority

In connection with projects located within its territorial boundaries, a government may, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, upon such terms, with or without consideration, as it may deem advisable, grant, convey or lease any of its property, whether held in a proprietary or governmental capacity, to an authority or government, including real property already devoted to a public use, provided that the government making the grant or lease determines that the premises are no longer required for the public use to which the property is devoted and that it is to the interest of the government to grant or lease the property to the authority for the purposes of this chapter. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section to the contrary, if the property is listed by the government as parkland in the office of the assessing authority of the government or such property is used as active or passive parkland or is parkland, then such property shall not be so granted, conveyed, leased or discontinued as parkland, without an act of the state legislature approving such grant, conveyance lease, or discontinuance. Notwithstanding any general, special or local law and any limitation or prohibition which may be contained therein against the power of alienation, any grant, sale, conveyance or lease may be made by a government to an authority or government in connection with a project, without appraisal, public notice, advertisement or public bidding. The finding of the government having jurisdiction that the property is no longer required for the public purpose for which it is devoted and that it is to the best interest of the government involved to grant or lease the property, shall be conclusive.
