I was working the combined positions of erick, lendy, final and satellite in the jfk sector. I did not have a handoff man. WX deteriorating in area with numerous IFR pick-ups. I took an automated handoff on subject aircraft 12 mi southwest jfk eastbound at 2000'. While giving the aircraft pertinent WX in the area, jfk tower called to advise the aircraft had penetrated their airspace and was an operational deviation. The aircraft at this time was approximately 7 mi southwest of jfk. Corrective action, in my opinion, would be to ensure a handoff man is provided during times of deteriorating WX to make certain appropriate pointouts are made. Note: no other traffic was within 20 mi of subject aircraft.

Title: SMA PENETRATED ADJACENT AIRSPACE WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION.
Narrative: I WAS WORKING THE COMBINED POSITIONS OF ERICK, LENDY, FINAL AND SATELLITE IN THE JFK SECTOR. I DID NOT HAVE A HDOF MAN. WX DETERIORATING IN AREA WITH NUMEROUS IFR PICK-UPS. I TOOK AN AUTOMATED HDOF ON SUBJECT ACFT 12 MI SW JFK EBND AT 2000'. WHILE GIVING THE ACFT PERTINENT WX IN THE AREA, JFK TWR CALLED TO ADVISE THE ACFT HAD PENETRATED THEIR AIRSPACE AND WAS AN OPDEV. THE ACFT AT THIS TIME WAS APPROX 7 MI SW OF JFK. CORRECTIVE ACTION, IN MY OPINION, WOULD BE TO ENSURE A HDOF MAN IS PROVIDED DURING TIMES OF DETERIORATING WX TO MAKE CERTAIN APPROPRIATE POINTOUTS ARE MADE. NOTE: NO OTHER TFC WAS WITHIN 20 MI OF SUBJECT ACFT.
