DECISION & ORDER
In an action to foreclose a mortgage, the plaintiff appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Noach Dear, J.), entered January 7, 2019. The order, insofar as appealed from, denied the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment on the complaint and for an order of reference, and granted that branch of the cross motion of the defendant 329 Bainbridge Realty, Inc., which was for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against it as time-barred.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar appealed from, with costs.
For reasons stated in Freedom Mtge. Corp. v Engel (163 AD3d 631, 633, lv granted in part 33 NY3d 1039), we agree with the Supreme Court’s determination denying the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment on the complaint and for an order of reference, and granting that branch of the cross motion of the defendant 329 Bainbridge Realty, Inc., which was for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against it as time-barred.
We do not address the argument raised in Point I of the plaintiff’s brief as it is improperly raised for the first time on appeal (see Citimortgage, Inc. v Borek, 171 AD3d 848, 851).
In view of the foregoing, the argument raised in Point III of the plaintiff’s brief is academic.
AUSTIN, J.P., COHEN, IANNACCI and CHRISTOPHER, JJ., concur.
Clerk of the Court
