What is the name of your state? live in nj.. summons in nyc

i received a summons, my first name, my address, and my town are all off by a letter. my birthdate is wrong. those are the only items filled in on the summons. no license number or anything else is filled out. my friends tell me that i don't have to go to the court date b/c they don't know who i am and won't be able to figure it out b/c of the lack of information, and the information they do have is not correct. what should i do? if i do go how should i proceed? could it be dismissed?
