They have thirty days to comply. This comes almost a year and a half after (see Daily News story below) these revelations were made public. Fox 5's John Deutzman does a follow up from his story in July.

MYFOXNY.COM - Some homeowners are being ordered to give huge chunks of their backyards back to New York City. It's a story Fox 5's John Deutzman broke in July, and he says some people are having a hard time facing the reality that it wasn't their land in the first place. The Parks Department admits it should have noticed this problem sooner. The department received a tip and started an investigation.
