If your talking about a summons or a notice of petition, you should follow the instructions to answer it. A notice of petition to start an eviction proceeding in New York City must only be a copy of the original on file with the Court. It should show that it was issued by the Clerk of the Court and the date it was issued. If these items do not appear on the copy which was served on you, the copy is defective, but you should raise the issue when you answer. Ignoring it entirely will only lead to a default judgment.
There are excellent explanations of what to do when you get court papers on the TenantNet website.
