N.Y. Religious Corporations Law Section 17-B
Property of extinct Presbyterian churches in connection with the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U


S.A.). Whenever the presbytery having jurisdiction over a particular church in connection with the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) dissolves or declares extinct the particular church, upon petition by the presbytery to the supreme or county court and upon satisfactory proof of the facts leading to said dissolution, the court shall have jurisdiction to grant an order to the effect that all property of whatever kind which may have belonged to, or have been held by, said church shall vest in the presbytery of jurisdiction in as full and ample a manner as the same shall theretofore have been vested in the church so declared to be dissolved and extinct. The stated clerk of the presbytery of jurisdiction shall record in the office of the county clerk, in which the church is located, a certified copy of the resolution of the presbytery declaring such church extinct and the court order transferring the title of the church property; and the recording of such a resolution and court order shall be proof of the vesting of the title of the real property of such church in the presbytery of jurisdiction.
