Appeal from the Supreme Court, Bronx County (Gerald Sheindlin, J.).
Defendant's claim that the sentencing court's remarks concerning parole release constituted an enhanced sentence is unpreserved and we decline to review it in the interest of justice. Were we to review this claim, we would find that the court's remarks were neither a directive to the Parole Board nor an enhancement of the promised sentence ( People v. Skinner, 232 A.D.2d 201, lv denied 89 N.Y.2d 929; People v. Saldana, 221 A.D.2d 239, 240, lv denied 87 N.Y.2d 1024).
