 1.  DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
  
 BUSINESS 
  
      TheStreet.com, Inc. ("TheStreet.com") is an on-line publisher of
 financial news, commentary and information.  TheStreet.com combines the
 most important qualities of traditional print journalism -- accuracy,
 intelligence, fairness and wit -- with the web's advantages as a financial
 news medium -- timeliness, interactivity and global distribution.  Our
 content is generated by a staff of over 60 professional reporters and
 editors, in addition to more than 30 outside contributors.  We update our
 site with approximately 40 original stories throughout each business day
 and with many additional features on the weekends.  We offer our readership
 additional tools and features such as real-time quotes, portfolio trackers,
 public company earnings information and charts and analysis. We provide our
 service to the investment community of professionals and individuals to
 help them make informed investment decisions.  We aim to further develop a
 community of loyal readers to build our subscription base and attract
 advertisers. 
  
 BASIS OF PRESENTATION 
  
      The information presented as of June 30, 1999 and 1998, and for the
 three month periods then ended, is unaudited, but, in the opinion of
 management of TheStreet.com, the accompanying unaudited financial
 statements contain all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring
 adjustments) which TheStreet.com considers necessary for the fair
 presentation of the TheStreet.com's financial position as of June 30, 1999,
 the results of its operations for the three-month and six-month periods
 ended June 30, 1999 and 1998 and its cash flows for the six-month period
 ended June 30, 1999 and 1998.  The financial statements included herein
 have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
 principles and the instructions to Form 10-Q.  Accordingly, certain
 information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial
 statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
 principles have been condensed or omitted.  These financial statements
 should be read in conjunction with TheStreet.com's audited financial
 statements and accompanying notes for the year ended December 31, 1998
 included in TheStreet.com's Form S-1 as filed with the Securities and

 accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 128,
 "Earnings per Share" ("SFAS No. 128").  Under the provisions of SFAS No.
 128 basic net income per share ("Basic EPS") is computed by dividing net
 income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock

ITEM 2.   MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND
           RESULTS OF OPERATIONS 
  
      This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of
 Section 27(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 as amended, Section 21(E) of
 the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, without
 limitations, statements regarding our expectations, beliefs, intentions or
 future strategies that are signified by the words "expects", "anticipates",
 "intends", "believes", or similar language.  All forward-looking statements
 included in this quarterly report on Form 10Q are based on information
 available to us on the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to update
 any such forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are
 subject to risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to
 differ. 
  
      The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction
 with the condensed financial statements and notes thereto. 
  
 OVERVIEW 
  
      TheStreet.com is a leading web-based provider of original, timely,
 comprehensive and trustworthy financial news, commentary and information
 aimed at helping readers make informed investment decisions. We combine the
 most important qualities of traditional print journalism -- accuracy,
 intelligence, fairness, and wit -- with the web's advantages as a financial
 news medium -- timeliness, interactivity and global distribution.  With a
 staff of more than 60 professional reporters and editors, together with
 over 30 outside contributors, we update our site with approximately 40
 original stories throughout each business day and with many additional
 features on weekends.  As a result, we are able to provide our readers with
 original content which provides for a loyal and increasing readership base. 
    
      We originally organized in June 1996 as a limited liability company
 funded by our co-founders, Mr. James J. Cramer and Dr. Martin Peretz.   In
 May 1998, we were re-organized from a limited liability company into a C
 corporation, and in May 1999, we completed our initial public offering.  We
 are based in New York City with bureaus in San Francisco and London. 
  
      We derive our revenues from retail and professional subscriptions,
 advertising and other sources, including content syndication fees.  Our two
 principal sources of revenue are generated from advertisers and
 subscribers. 
  
      We have a number of strategic relationships that continue to help
 create brand awareness and increase subscription and advertising revenues. 
 We have subscription distribution agreements with third parties such as
 E*Trade and DLJ Direct, content distribution agreements with Yahoo!,
 America Online and Intuit, and joint ventures with media companies such as
 The New York Times Co. and Fox News Network.   

      In addition to providing financial news and commentary, we have
 developed indices listed on major stock exchanges to monitor the collective
 performance of companies in various sectors.  In conjunction with the
 Philadelphia Stock Exchange and the Susquehanna Investment Group, we
 created TheStreet.com Internet Sector, an index of 20 Internet stocks. 
 Options based on the index began trading in December 1998.  In February
 1999, we created TheStreet.com E-Commerce Index, an index of 15 electronic
 commerce stocks.  In June 1999, we created a third stock index,
 TheStreet.com E-Finance index, an index of 11 electronic finance stocks.   

 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS 
  
 THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 1998 AND JUNE 30, 1999 
  
      NET REVENUES 
  
      Advertising Revenues.  Advertising revenues are derived from
 sponsorship arrangements and from the delivery of banner and email
 advertisements.  Advertising revenues increased from $586,000 for the three
 months ended June 30, 1998 to $1,740,000 for the three months ended June
 30, 1999 primarily as a result of agreements with new advertisers.  For the
 three months ended June 30, 1999 approximately 75% of our advertising
 revenues was derived from sponsorship contracts.  
  
      The number of advertisers increased from 17 for the three months ended
 June 30, 1998 to 83 for the three months ended June 30, 1999.  Our top five
 advertisers contributed 46% of advertising revenues for the three months
 ended June 30, 1999, compared to 77% for the three months ended June 30,
 1998. 
  
      Subscription Revenues.  Net subscription revenues are derived from
 annual and monthly subscriptions.  We calculate net subscription revenues
 by deducting from gross revenues, cancellation chargebacks and any refunds. 
 During the three months ended June 30, 1999, these cancellation chargebacks
 and refunds accounted for approximately 4% of total subscriptions revenues. 
 Net subscription revenues increased from $448,000 for the three months
 ended June 30, 1998 to $934,000 for the three months ended June 30, 1999
 primarily as a result of the growth in our subscriber base.  For the three
 months ended June 30, 1999, approximately 77% of our net subscription
 revenues was derived from annual subscriptions. 
  
      We continue to attract new subscribers to our site, as our subscriber
 base has grown to approximately 66,000 subscribers, including subscribers
 paid for as part of the bulk subscription contracts, as of June 30, 1999. 
 During the three months ended June 30, 1999, we averaged one million unique
 visitors per month and 15 million page views per month.  During this same
 period, registered users including subscribers and free trial members spent
 an average of 23 minutes per visit on our site.   
  
      Other Revenues.  Other revenues increased from $83,000 for the three
 months ended June 30, 1998 to $586,000 for the three months ended June 30,
 1999 primarily as a result of hosting and new syndication arrangements with
 online and print media companies, and one-time consulting services related
 to content syndication. 
  
      COST OF REVENUES 
  
      Cost of revenues includes compensation and benefits for editorial
 staff, fees paid to outside contributors and content licensing fees payable
 to content providers.  Cost of revenues increased from $784,000 for the
 three months ended June 30, 1998 to $2,077,000 for the three months ended
 June 30, 1999 primarily as a result of the growth of our editorial staff
 from 35 as of June 30, 1998 to 66 as of June 30, 1999, an increase in the
 number of outside contributors, an increase in data service fees for
 editorial research, and an increase in content licensing fees. 
  
      PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES 
  
      Product development expenses include compensation and benefits for
 software developers, expenses for contract programmers and developers,
 communication lines, and other technology costs.  Product development
 expenses increased from $202,000 for the three months ended June 30, 1998
 to $1,426,000 for the three months ended June 30, 1999 primarily as a
 result of the commencement of new product development projects and an
 increase of our technology headcount from 6 people as of June 30, 1998 to
 24 as of June 30, 1999.  We introduced our own subscription management
 system in late May 1999 and made additional enhancements to our web site. 
 All product development costs are expensed as incurred.  
  
      SALES AND MARKETING EXPENSES 
  
      Sales and marketing expenses consist primarily of advertising and
 promotion on television, online and in print, advertising commissions,
 promotional materials, and compensation, benefits and sales commissions to
 our direct sales force.  Sales and marketing expenses decreased from
 $3,692,000 for the three months ended June 30, 1998 to $3,357,000 for the
 three months ended June 30, 1999 primarily due to a reduction in television
 and online advertising caused by our initial public offering. We anticipate
 incurring additional costs related to advertising and promotion on
 television, online and in print.  
  
      GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES 
  
      General and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation
 and benefits for general management, finance and administrative personnel,
 occupancy costs, professional fees, depreciation and other office
 expenses. General and administrative expenses increased from $1,021,000
 for the three months ended June 30, 1998 to $3,449,000 for the three
 months ended June 30, 1999 primarily as a result of incurring additional
 costs to support the growth of our business and costs related to our being
 a public company. The increased costs of supporting the growth of our
 business primarily relate to hiring additional personnel, one-time costs
 related to an office move, increased computer supplies and services,
 increased professional service fees and increased costs for office
 supplies.
  
      NONCASH COMPENSATION EXPENSE 
  
      In 1998 and the first six months of 1999, we granted options to
 purchase shares of common stock at exercise prices that were less than the
 fair market value of the underlying shares of common stock on the date of
 grant.  This resulted in noncash compensation expense incurred over the
 period that these specific options vest.  The noncash compensation expense
 was approximately $632,000 for the three months ended June 30, 1999.  The
 remaining noncash compensation expense for 1999 is currently estimated to
 be $1.3 million.  
  
      INTEREST EXPENSE (INCOME) NET 
  
      For the three months ended June 30, 1998, interest expense on loans
 from members of TheStreet.com, L.L.C. was $125,000.  In May 1998, the loans
 and remaining accrued interest were converted into equity when
 TheStreet.com, L.L.C. converted into TheStreet.com, Inc.  For the three
 months ended June 30, 1998, interest income was $48,000, primarily from
 interest earned on the cash proceeds from a private placement in May 1998. 
 For the three months ended June 30, 1999, interest income was $870,000
 primarily as a result of proceeds from the completion of a $25 million
 private placement in December 1998, additional equity investments in the
 first quarter of 1999 and net proceeds from our initial public offering in
 May 1999 of $108,788,000. 
  
 INCOME TAXES 
  
      The provision for income taxes of $19,000 for the three months ended
 June 30, 1999 relates primarily to state and local taxes. 
  

 SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 1998 AND JUNE 30, 1999 
  
      NET REVENUES 
  
      Advertising Revenues.  Advertising revenues increased from $1,160,000
 in the six months ended June 30, 1998 to $2,864,000 in the six months ended
 June 30, 1999 due to an increase in our sales of sponsorship banner and
 email advertisements. In the six months ended June 30, 1998, 82% of our
 advertising revenues were derived from sponsorship contracts.  In the six
 months ended June 30, 1999, 81% of our advertising revenues was derived
 from sponsorship contracts.   
  
      The number of advertisers increased from 30 for the six months ended
 June 30, 1998 to 114 for the six months ended June 30, 1999.  Our top five
 advertisers contributed 51% of advertising revenues for the six months
 ended June 30, 1999, compared  to 73% for the six months ended June 30,
 1998. 
  
      Subscription Revenues.  Net subscription revenues increased from
 $707,000 in the six months ended June 30, 1998 to $1,647,000 in the six
 months ended June 30, 1999 primarily as a result of the growth in our
 subscriber base. During the six months ended June 30, 1999, cancellation
 chargebacks and refunds accounted for approximately 4% of total
 subscription revenues.  For the six months ended June 30, 1999,
 approximately 73% of our net subscription revenues was derived from annual
 subscriptions. 
  
      Other Revenues.  Other revenues increased from $168,000 in the six
 months ended June 30, 1998 to $740,000 in the six months ended June 30,
 1999.  In the six months ended June 30, 1998, our other revenues consisted
 of revenues derived from a syndication and hosting partnership with
 ABCNEWS.com and Starwave (an affiliate of ABCNEWS.com).  As part of this
 arrangement, we agreed to syndicate a portion of our news content to
 ABCNEWS.com in return for technology and hosting services from Starwave.
 This arrangement ceased once our internal subscription management system
 became operational in late May 1999.  In the six months ended June 30,
 1999, other revenues consisted primarily of hosting and new syndication
 arrangements with online and print media companies, and revenues from one-
 time consulting services related to content syndication. 
  
      COST OF REVENUES 
  
      Cost of revenues increased from $1,490,000 for the six months ended
 June 30, 1998 to $3,681,000 for the six months ended June 30, 1999
 primarily as a result of the growth of our editorial staff from 35 as of
 June 30, 1998 to 66 as of June 30, 1999, an increase in the number of
 outside contributors, an increase in data service fees for editorial
 research, and an increase in content licensing fees. 
  
      PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES 
  
      Product development expenses increased from $341,000 for the six
 months ended June 30, 1998 to $2,826,000 for the six months ended June 30,
 1999, primarily as a result of the commencement of new product development
 projects, and an increase in the headcount from 6 people as of June 30,
 1998 to 24 people as of June 30, 1999.  
  
      SALES AND MARKETING EXPENSES 
  
      Sales and marketing expenses decreased from $6,419,000 for the six
 months ended June 30, 1998 to $5,511,000 for the six months ended June 30,
 1999, primarily due to a reduction in television and online advertising
 caused by our initial public offering.  We anticipate incurring additional
 costs related to advertising and promotion on television, online and in
 print.  
  
      GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES 
  
      General and administrative costs increased from $1,788,000 for the six
 months ended June 30, 1998 to $6,435,000 for the six months ended June 30,
 1999 primarily as a result of hiring additional personnel and incurring
 additional costs to support the growth of our business and costs related to
 our being a public company.  The increased costs of supporting the growth
 of our business primarily relate to rent and moving expenses, professional
 service fees, insurance costs and equipment depreciation.   
  
      NONCASH COMPENSATION EXPENSE 
  
      During 1998 and the first six months of 1999, we granted options to
 purchase shares of common stock at exercise prices that were less than the
 fair market value of the underlying shares of common stock on the date of
 grant.  This resulted in noncash compensation expense over the period that
 these specific options vest.  For the first six months ended June 30, 1999,
 we recorded $1,830,000 noncash compensation expense related to these
 options.  We estimate this expense will be approximately $3.130 million for
 the year ended December 31, 1999.  The remaining noncash compensation
 expense beyond 1999 is currently estimated to be $8 million. 
  
      INTEREST EXPENSE (INCOME) NET 
  
      For the six months ended June 30, 1998, interest expense on loans from
 founders of the TheStreet.com, L.L.C. was $383,000.  In May 1998, the loans
 and remaining accrued interest were converted into equity when
 TheStreet.com, L.L.C. converted into TheStreet.com, Inc.  For the first six
 months of June 30, 1998 interest income was $48,000, primarily from
 interest earned on the cash proceeds from a private placement in May 1998. 
 For the six months ended June 30, 1999, interest income was $1,121,000,
 primarily from interest earned on the cash proceeds from our initial public
 offering. 
  
 INCOME TAXES 
  
      For the six months ended June 30, 1999, income taxes were $95,000,
 primarily due to state and local income tax assessments. 
  
 LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES 
  
      We currently invest in money market funds that are highly liquid, of
 high-quality investment grade, and have maturities of less than three
 months with the intent to make such funds readily available for operating
 purposes.  As of June 30, 1999, our cash and cash equivalents amounted to
 $127,101,000, compared to $24,612,000 as of December 31, 1998. 
  
      We believe that our market risk exposures are immaterial as we do not
 have instruments for trading purposes, and reasonable possible near-term
 changes in market rates or prices will not result in material near-term
 losses in earnings, material changes in fair values or cash flows for all
 instruments. 
  
      Cash used in operating activities of $9,273,000 for the six months
 ended June 30, 1999 was primarily due to a net loss of $14,005,000, offset
 by non cash charges of $1,830,000 for compensation expense, an increase in
 accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1,581,000 for normal operating
 expenses, and an increase in deferred revenue of $900,000 primarily due to
 the increase in annual subscriptions sales.  Significant uses of cash in
 operations for the six months ended June 30, 1999 include costs associated
 with additional reporters and editors, sales and marketing activities to
 establish and promote our products and services, product development
 expenses to enhance our web site's features and functionality, and general
 and administrative expenses to support the growth of our business. 
  
      Cash used in investing activities of $1,022,000 for the six months
 ended June 30, 1999 consisted primarily of capital expenditures.  Capital
 expenditures have generally consisted of purchases of computer hardware
 related to increasing our capacity and enhancing our web site. 
  
      Cash provided by financing activities was $112,785,000 for the six
 months ended June 30, 1999 due to the initial public offering completed in
 May 1999 of 6,325,000 shares at a $19 offering price per share with
 proceeds of $108,788,000 net of underwriting and offering expenses, and
 $4,000,000 as a result of issuances of common stock in the first quarter of
 1999. 
  
      We believe that the net proceeds from our initial public offering,
 together with our current cash, will be sufficient to meet our anticipated
 cash needs for at least the next 12 months.  Thereafter, if cash generated
 from operations is insufficient to satisfy our liquidity requirements, we
 may need to raise additional funds through public or private financings,
 strategic relationships or other arrangements.  There can be no assurance
 that additional funding, if needed, will be available on terms attractive
 to us, or at all.  Strategic relationships, if necessary to raise
 additional funds, may require us to provide rights to certain of our
 content.  The failure to raise capital when needed could materially
 adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial
 condition.  If additional funds are raised through the issuance of equity
 securities, the percentage ownership of our then-current stockholders would
 be reduced.  Furthermore, these equity securities might have rights,
 preferences or privileges senior to those of our common stock. 
  
 YEAR 2000 READINESS DISCLOSURE 
  
 OUR STATE OF READINESS 
  
      We have defined Year 2000 compliance as follows:  Information
 Technology ("IT") time and date data processes, including, but not limited
 to, calculating, comparing and sequencing data from, into and between the
 20th and 21st centuries contained in our products and services, and our
 non-IT systems, will function accurately, continuously and without
 degradation in performance and without requiring intervention or
 modification in any manner that will or could materially adversely affect
 the performance of such products or the delivery of such services as
 applicable at any time hereafter. 
  
      We have substantially completed the process of determining the Year
 2000 readiness of our IT systems, which include the hardware and software
 necessary to provide and deliver our service, and of our non-IT systems,
 except for our telephone systems which we expect to replace before the end
 of this year.  TheStreet.com's assessment plan consists of the following
 steps: 
  
      (i)   evaluating our date dependent code, software and hardware and
            evaluating external dependencies;
  
      (ii)  quality assurance testing of our internally-developed proprietary
            software and systems;

      (iii) obtaining assurances or warranties from third-party vendors
            and licensors of material hardware, software and services
            that are related to the delivery of our services; and
  
      (iv)  evaluating the need for, and preparing and implementing if
            required, a contingency plan.

  
      To date, our assessment has determined that our material internally
 developed software and systems are Year 2000 compliant and our material
 hardware, software and service vendors have informed us that the products
 we are using to support our services are Year 2000 compliant.  Our hosting
 service, Exodus Communications, has represented to us that its systems are
 Year 2000 compliant or will be upgraded to be compliant in the normal
 course of business through upgrades or installation of software patches. 
 Substantially all hardware used in our network operations and office
 operations has been certified as Year 2000 compliant by our vendors.  We
 expect to be moving from our present facilities at the end of this year,
 and, therefore, we have not asked for assurances from our current landlord
 on the Year 2000 compliance of our existing facilities. 
  
 THE COSTS TO ADDRESS YEAR 2000 ISSUES 
  
      We have incurred $25,200 in costs in connection with our Year 2000
 compliance efforts since inception through June 30, 1999.  We expect to
 incur approximately $20,000 in additional costs to make our systems Year
 2000 compliant, which will be expensed as incurred. 
  
      We are not currently aware of any material operational issues or costs
 associated with preparing our systems for the Year 2000.  Nonetheless, we
 may experience material unexpected costs caused by undetected errors or
 defects in the technology used in our systems or because of the failure of
 a material vendor to be Year 2000 compliant. 
  
 CONTINGENCY PLANS 
  
      We have not yet developed a contingency plan to address situations
 that may result if we are unable to achieve Year 2000 compliance.  The cost
 of developing and implementing such a plan, if necessary, could be
 material. 
  
 RISK FACTORS THAT MAY AFFECT FUTURE OPERATING RESULTS 
  
      You should carefully consider the following risks before making an
 investment decision. If any of the following risks occur, our business,
 results of operations or financial condition could be materially adversely
 affected. 
  
 OUR LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY MAKES EVALUATING OUR BUSINESS DIFFICULT 
  
      We commenced operations in June 1996 and launched our web site in
 November 1996. Accordingly, we have only a limited operating history upon
 which you can evaluate our business and prospects. An investor in our
 common stock must consider the risks, expenses and difficulties frequently
 encountered by early stage companies in new and rapidly evolving markets,
 including web-based financial news and information companies. 
  
 WE HAVE A HISTORY OF LOSSES AND WE ANTICIPATE LOSSES WILL CONTINUE 
  
      As of June 30, 1999, we had an accumulated deficit of $28.1 million.
 We have not achieved profitability and expect to continue to incur net
 losses in 1999 and subsequent fiscal periods. We expect to continue to
 incur significant operating expenses and, as a result, will need to
 generate significant revenues to achieve profitability, which may not
 occur. Even if we do achieve profitability, we may be unable to sustain or
 increase profitability on a quarterly or annual basis in the future. 
  
 IF WE ARE UNABLE TO ATTRACT OR RETAIN QUALIFIED EDITORIAL STAFF AND OUTSIDE
 CONTRIBUTORS, OUR BUSINESS COULD BE HARMED 
  
      Our future success depends substantially upon the continued efforts of
 our editorial staff and outside contributors to produce original, timely,
 comprehensive and trustworthy content. Only a few of our writers are bound
 by employment agreements. Competition for financial journalists is intense,
 and we may not be able to retain existing or attract additional highly
 qualified writers in the future. If we lose the services of a significant
 number of our editorial staff and outside contributors or are unable to
 continue to attract additional writers with appropriate qualifications, our
 business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially
 adversely affected. 
  
      In addition, we believe that some of our writers, including Mr. James
 J. Cramer and Mr. Herb Greenberg, have a large and loyal following among
 our readers. Mr. Cramer has an employment agreement with us that terminates
 in February 2003. Mr. Greenberg has an employment agreement with us that
 terminates in March 2001. If we lose the services of prominent members of
 our editorial staff, including Mr. Greenberg, or popular outside
 contributors, including Mr. Cramer, a significant number of our subscribers
 may not renew their subscriptions or the number of our readers may
 decrease. A significant reduction in the number of our subscribers or
 readers could materially adversely affect our business, results of
 operations and financial condition. 
  
 POTENTIAL FLUCTUATIONS IN OUR QUARTERLY FINANCIAL RESULTS MAKE FINANCIAL
 FORECASTING DIFFICULT 
  
      Our quarterly operating results may fluctuate significantly in the
 future as a result of a variety of factors, many of which are outside our
 control. 
  
      We believe that advertising sales in traditional media, such as
 television and radio, generally are lower in the first and third calendar
 quarters of each year. Similar seasonal or other patterns may develop in
 our industry. 
  
      We believe that quarter-to-quarter comparisons of our operating
 results may not be a good indication of our future performance, nor would
 our operating results for any particular quarter be indicative of future
 operating results. In some future quarters our operating results may be
 below the expectations of public market analysts and investors. In such an
 event, the price of our common stock may fall. 
  
 OUR FUTURE SUCCESS DEPENDS ON MAINTAINING AND INCREASING OUR SUBSCRIBER
 BASE 
  
      Our future success is highly dependent on an increase in the number of
 readers who are willing to subscribe to online financial news and
 information publications. The number of Internet users willing to pay for
 online financial news and information may not continue to increase. If the
 market for subscription-based online financial news and information
 publications develops more slowly than we expect, our business, results of
 operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected.
 Further, we presently offer a portion of our content for free. In the
 future we intend to increase the free portion of our content to increase
 traffic. However, this change may reduce the number of our new or renewing
 subscribers, which could have a material adverse effect on our business,
 results of operations and financial condition. Additionally, during the
 fourth quarter of 1998, we began to participate in a program where our
 readers can receive annual subscriptions to our site by redeeming frequent
 flyer miles through a third-party service.  Additional readers may not
 subscribe through this program. Further, while we do not expect that these
 subscribers will renew their subscriptions at a rate consistent with the
 renewal rate of our general subscriber base, it is possible that the actual
 renewal rate of these subscribers may be significantly lower than our
 expectations, which could materially adversely affect our business, results
 of operations and financial condition. 
  
 WE DEPEND ON OUR TOP ADVERTISERS FOR A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF OUR
 ADVERTISING REVENUES, AND THE LOSS OF ONE OR MORE OF OUR TOP ADVERTISERS
 MAY HARM OUR BUSINESS
  
      In 1998, our top advertiser accounted for approximately 40%, and our
 top five advertisers accounted for approximately 65%, of our total
 advertising revenues.  For the six months ended June 30, 1999, our top five
 advertisers accounted for approximately 51% of our total advertising
 revenues. Our business, results of operations and financial condition could
 be materially adversely affected by the loss of one or more of our top
 advertisers. Further, if we do not continue to increase our revenue from
 financial services advertisers or attract advertisers from non-financial
 industries, our business, results of operations and financial condition
 could be materially adversely affected. We believe that we charge
 advertising rates that are among the highest of financial web sites.
 However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to command premium
 rates in the future. Further, as we increase the free portion of our site,
 which may command lower advertising rates than our premium sections,
 current advertisers may seek to switch to these less expensive areas. As is
 typical in the advertising industry, our advertising contracts have
 cancellation provisions. 
  
 OUR INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION MAY INCREASE EXPENSES AND CREATE COMPLIANCE AND
 OPERATIONAL DIFFICULTIES 
   
      We intend to expand our business into international markets. In the
 event that we conduct international expansion, we will incur significant
 additional costs which would result in additional losses.  Also, we will
 encounter many of the risks associated with international business
 expansion, generally. These risks include, but are not limited to, language
 barriers, changes in currency exchange rates, political and economic
 instability, difficulties with regulatory compliance and difficulties with
 enforcing contracts and other legal obligations. 
  
 INTENSE COMPETITION COULD REDUCE OUR MARKET SHARE AND HARM OUR FINANCIAL
 PERFORMANCE 
  
      An increasing number of financial news and information sources compete
 for consumers' and advertisers' attention and spending. We expect this
 competition to continue to increase. We compete for advertisers, readers,
 staff and outside contributors with many types of companies, including: 
  
      o         online services or web sites focused on business, finance
                and investing, such as MarketWatch.com, The Wall Street
                Journal Interactive Edition, DowJones.com and The Motley
                Fool; 
  
      o         publishers and distributors of traditional media, including
                print, radio and television, such as The Wall Street
                Journal, Barrons, Fortune, Bloomberg Business Radio and
                CNBC; 
  
      o         providers of terminal-based financial news and data, such as
                Bloomberg Business News, Reuters News Service, Dow Jones
                Markets and Bridge News Service; 
  

      o         web "portal" companies, such as Yahoo! and America Online;
                and 
  
      o         online brokerage firms, many of which provide financial and
                investment news and information, such as Charles Schwab and
                E*TRADE 
  
      Our ability to compete depends on many factors, including the
 originality, timeliness, comprehensiveness and trustworthiness of our
 content and that of our competitors, the ease of use of services developed
 either by us or our competitors and the effectiveness of our sales and
 marketing efforts. 
  
      Many of our existing competitors, as well as a number of potential new
 competitors, have longer operating histories, greater name recognition,
 larger customer bases and significantly greater financial, technical and
 marketing resources than we do. This may allow them to devote greater
 resources than we can to the development and promotion of their services.
 These competitors may also engage in more extensive research and
 development, undertake more far-reaching marketing campaigns, adopt more
 aggressive pricing policies (including offering their financial news for
 free) and make more attractive offers to existing and potential employees,
 outside contributors, strategic partners and advertisers. Our competitors
 may develop content that is equal or superior to ours or that achieves
 greater market acceptance than ours. It is also possible that new
 competitors may emerge and rapidly acquire significant market share. We may
 not be able to compete successfully for advertisers, readers, staff or
 outside contributors, which could materially adversely affect our business,
 results of operations and financial condition. Increased competition could
 result in price reductions, reduced margins or loss of market share, any of
 which could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations
 and financial condition. 
  
      We also compete with other web sites, television, radio and print
 media for a share of advertisers' total advertising budgets. If advertisers
 perceive the Internet or our web site to be a limited or an ineffective
 advertising medium, they may be reluctant to devote a portion of their
 advertising budget to Internet advertising or to advertising on our web
 site. 
  
 A FAILURE TO ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN STRATEGIC RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHER WEB
 SITES COULD DECREASE OUR SUBSCRIBER AND READER BASE, WHICH MAY HARM OUR
 BUSINESS 
  
      We depend on establishing and maintaining subscription distribution
 relationships with online financial services firms and content syndication
 relationships with high-traffic web sites for a significant portion of our
 subscriber and reader base. There is intense competition for relationships
 with these firms and placement on these sites, and we may have to pay
 significant fees to establish additional content syndication relationships
 or maintain existing relationships in the future. We may be unable to enter
 into relationships with these firms or sites on commercially reasonable
 terms or at all. Even if we enter into these relationships, they may not
 attract significant numbers of readers. Therefore, our site may not receive
 a significant number of additional subscribers or readers from such
 relationships. 
  
      Many companies that we may approach for a strategic relationship or
 who already have strategic relationships with us also provide financial
 news and information from other sources. As a result, these companies may
 be reluctant to enter into or maintain strategic relationships with us. Our
 business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially
 adversely affected if we do not establish additional, and maintain
 existing, strategic relationships on commercially reasonable terms or if
 any of our strategic relationships do not result in an increase in the
 number of subscribers or readers of our web site. 
  
 FAILURE TO RETAIN AND INTEGRATE OUR ADVERTISING SALES FORCE COULD RESULT IN
 LOWER ADVERTISING REVENUES 
  
      We depend on our internal advertising sales department to maintain and
 increase our advertising sales. As of June 30, 1999, our advertising sales
 department consisted of 12 employees. The success of our advertising sales
 department is subject to a number of risks, including the competition we
 face from other companies in hiring and retaining sales personnel and the
 length of time it takes new sales personnel to become productive. Our
 business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially
 adversely affected if we do not maintain an effective advertising sales
 department. 
  
 WE MAY BE UNABLE TO MANAGE OUR GROWTH, WHICH MAY HARM OUR BUSINESS 
  
      We have experienced rapid growth in our operations. Our rapid growth
 has placed, and our anticipated future growth will continue to place, a
 significant strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources.
 To manage our growth, we must continue to implement and improve our
 managerial controls and procedures and operational and financial systems.
 In addition, our future success will depend on our ability to expand, train
 and manage our workforce, in particular our editorial, advertising sales
 and business development staff. As of June 30, 1999, we had a total of 158
 employees, as compared to 100 employees as of December 31, 1998 and 33
 employees as of December 31, 1997. We expect that the number of our
 employees will continue to increase for the foreseeable future. We will
 need to integrate these employees into our workforce successfully. We
 cannot assure you that we have made adequate allowances for the costs and
 risks associated with this expansion, that our systems, procedures or
 controls will be adequate to support our operations, or that our management
 will be able to successfully offer and expand our services. If we are
 unable to manage our growth effectively, our business, results of
 operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected. 
  
 WE MAY BE UNABLE TO GROW THROUGH ACQUISITIONS AND INTEGRATE FUTURE
 ACQUISITIONS INTO OUR BUSINESS 
  
      We intend to pursue a growth strategy involving acquisitions of other
 companies.  However, we may be unable to successfully pursue and complete
 these acquisitions in a timely and cost-effective manner.  Further, the
 pursuit and integration of acquisitions will require substantial attention
 from our senior management, which will limit the amount of time these
 individuals will have available to devote to our existing operations. 
 There can be no assurance that we can successfully integrate these
 acquisitions into our business or implement our plans without delay or
 substantial cost.  In addition, future acquisitions by us could result in
 the incurrence of debt and contingent liabilities which could have a
 material adverse effect upon our financial condition and results of
 operations.  Any failure or any inability to effectively manage and
 integrate growth may have a material adverse effect on our financial
 condition and results of operations. 
  
 OUR FUTURE SUCCESS DEPENDS ON THE CONTINUED SERVICES OF OUR KEY MANAGEMENT
 PERSONNEL 
  
      Our future success depends upon the continued service of certain key
 management personnel. The loss of one or more of our key management
 personnel could materially adversely affect our business, results of
 operations and financial condition. A few of our employees have entered
 into non-competition agreements with us. However, other employees may leave
 us and work for our competitors or start their own competing business. 
  
 UNEXPECTED INCREASES IN TRAFFIC MAY STRAIN OUR SYSTEMS 
  
      In the past, we have experienced significant spikes in traffic on our
 web site when there have been important financial news events. In addition,
 the number of our readers has continued to increase over time and we are
 seeking to increase our reader base further. Accordingly, our web site must
 accommodate a high volume of traffic, often at unexpected times. Our web
 site has in the past, and may in the future, experience slower response
 times than usual or other problems for a variety of reasons. These
 occurrences could cause our readers to perceive our web site as not
 functioning properly and, therefore, cause them to use other methods to
 obtain their financial news and information. In such a case, our business,
 results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely
 affected. 
  
 WE FACE A RISK OF SYSTEM FAILURE THAT MAY RESULT IN REDUCED TRAFFIC,
 REDUCED REVENUE AND HARM TO OUR REPUTATION 
  
      Our ability to provide timely information and continuous news updates
 depends on the efficient and uninterrupted operation of our computer and
 communications hardware and software systems. Similarly, our ability to
 track, measure and report the delivery of advertisements on our site
 depends on the efficient and uninterrupted operation of a third-party
 system, DART by DoubleClick. These systems and operations are vulnerable to
 damage or interruption from human error, natural disasters,
 telecommunication failures, break-ins, sabotage, computer viruses,
 intentional acts of vandalism and similar events. Although we do not have a
 formal disaster recovery plan, we are in the process of developing one. Any
 system failure, including network, software or hardware failure, that
 causes an interruption in our service or a decrease in responsiveness of
 our web site could result in reduced traffic, reduced revenue and harm to
 our reputation, brand and our relations with our advertisers. In February
 1999, we entered into a one-year Internet-hosting agreement with Exodus
 Communications, Inc. to maintain all of our production servers at Exodus'
 New Jersey data center. Our operations depend on Exodus' ability to protect
 its and our systems in its data center against damage from fire, power
 loss, water damage, telecommunications failure, vandalism and similar
 unexpected adverse events. Although Exodus provides comprehensive
 facilities management services, including human and technical monitoring of
 all production servers 24 hours per day, seven days per week, Exodus does
 not guarantee that our Internet access will be uninterrupted, error-free or
 secure. Any disruption in the Internet access to our web site provided by
 Exodus could materially adversely affect our business, results of
 operations and financial condition. Our insurance policies may not
 adequately compensate us for any losses that we may incur because of any
 failures in our system or interruptions in our delivery of content. Our
 business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially
 adversely affected by any event, damage or failure that interrupts or
 delays our operations. 
  
 DIFFICULTIES ASSOCIATED WITH OUR BRAND DEVELOPMENT MAY HARM OUR ABILITY TO
 ATTRACT SUBSCRIBERS AND READERS 
  
      We believe that maintaining and growing awareness about the
 TheStreet.com brand is an important aspect of our efforts to continue to
 attract subscribers and readers. The importance of brand recognition will
 increase in the future because of the growing number of web sites providing
 financial news and information. We cannot assure you that our efforts to
 build brand awareness will be successful. 
  

 FAILURE TO MAINTAIN OUR REPUTATION FOR TRUSTWORTHINESS MAY REDUCE THE
 NUMBER OF OUR READERS, WHICH MAY HARM OUR BUSINESS 
  
      It is very important that we maintain our reputation as a trustworthy
 news organization. The occurrence of events, including our misreporting a
 news story or the non-disclosure of stock ownership by one or more of our
 writers in breach of our compliance policy, could harm our reputation for
 trustworthiness. These events could result in a significant reduction in
 the number of our readers, which could materially adversely affect our
 business, results of operations and financial condition. 
  
 POTENTIAL LIABILITY FOR INFORMATION DISPLAYED ON OUR WEB SITE MAY REQUIRE
 US TO DEFEND AGAINST LEGAL CLAIMS, WHICH MAY CAUSE SIGNIFICANT OPERATIONAL
 EXPENDITURES 
  
      We may be subject to claims for defamation, libel, copyright or
 trademark infringement or based on other theories relating to the
 information we publish on our web site. These types of claims have been
 brought, sometimes successfully, against online services as well as other
 print publications in the past. We could also be subject to claims based
 upon the content that is accessible from our web site through links to
 other web sites. Our insurance may not adequately protect us against these
 claims. 
  
 YEAR 2000 COMPLICATIONS MAY DISRUPT OUR OPERATIONS AND HARM OUR BUSINESS 
  
      Many currently installed computer systems and software products are
 coded to accept only two-digit entries to identify a year in the date code
 field. Consequently, on January 1, 2000, many of these systems could fail
 or malfunction because they may not be able to distinguish between 20th
 century dates and 21st century dates. Accordingly, our customers, potential
 customers, vendors and strategic partners may need to upgrade their
 computer systems and software products to comply with applicable "Year
 2000" requirements. 
  
      Because we and our subscribers and readers are dependent, to a very
 substantial degree, upon the proper functioning of our and their computer
 systems, a failure of our or their computer systems to correctly recognize
 dates beyond December 31, 1999, could materially disrupt our operations or
 the ability of our subscribers and readers to access our web site, which
 could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and
 financial condition.  
  
 FAILURE TO PROTECT OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS COULD HARM OUR BRAND-
 BUILDING EFFORTS AND ABILITY TO COMPETE EFFECTIVELY 
  
      To protect our rights to our intellectual property, we rely on a
 combination of trademark and copyright law, trade secret protection,
 confidentiality agreements and other contractual arrangements with our
 employees, affiliates, clients, strategic partners and others. The
 protective steps we have taken may be inadequate to deter misappropriation
 of our proprietary information. We may be unable to detect the unauthorized
 use of, or take appropriate steps to enforce, our intellectual property
 rights. We have registered our trademarks in the United States and we have
 pending U.S. applications for other trademarks. Effective trademark,
 copyright and trade secret protection may not be available in every country
 in which we offer or intend to offer our services. Failure to adequately
 protect our intellectual property could harm our brand, devalue our
 proprietary content and affect our ability to compete effectively. Further,
 defending our intellectual property rights could result in the expenditure
 of significant financial and managerial resources, which could materially
 adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial
 condition. 
  

 WE MAY HAVE TO DEFEND AGAINST INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS,
 WHICH MAY CAUSE SIGNIFICANT OPERATIONAL EXPENDITURES 
  
      Although we believe that our proprietary rights do not infringe on the
 intellectual property rights of others, other parties may assert
 infringement claims against us or claims that we have violated a patent or
 infringed a copyright, trademark or other proprietary right belonging to
 them. We incorporate licensed third-party technology in some of our
 services. In these license agreements, the licensors have generally agreed
 to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless with respect to any claim by a
 third party that the licensed software infringes any patent or other
 proprietary right. We cannot assure you that these provisions will be
 adequate to protect us from infringement claims. Any infringement claims,
 even if not meritorious, could result in the expenditure of significant
 financial and managerial resources on our part, which could materially
 adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial
 condition. 
  
 DIFFICULTIES IN DEVELOPING NEW AND ENHANCED SERVICES AND FEATURES FOR OUR
 WEB SITE COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS 
  
      We intend to introduce additional and enhanced services in order to
 retain our current readers and attract new readers. If we introduce a
 service that is not favorably received, our current readers may choose a
 competitive service over ours or fail to renew their subscriptions. We may
 also experience difficulties that could delay or prevent us from
 introducing new services. These difficulties may include the loss of, or
 inability to obtain or maintain, third-party technology license agreements.
 Furthermore, the new services we may introduce could contain errors that
 are discovered after these services are introduced. In these cases, we may
 need to significantly modify the design or implementation of such services
 on our web site to correct these errors. Our business, results of
 operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected
 if we experience difficulties in introducing new services or if these new
 services are not accepted by our readers. 
  
 OUR ABILITY TO MAINTAIN AND INCREASE OUR READER BASE DEPENDS ON THE
 CONTINUED GROWTH IN USE AND EFFICIENT OPERATION OF THE WEB 
  
      The web-based information market is new and rapidly evolving. Our
 business would be materially adversely affected if web usage does not
 continue to grow or grows slowly. Web usage may be inhibited for a number
 of reasons, such as: 
  
      o         inadequate network infrastructure; 
  
      o         security concerns; 
  
      o         inconsistent quality of service; and 
  
      o         unavailability of cost-effective, high-speed access to the
                Internet. 
  
      Our readers depend on Internet service providers, online service
 providers and other web site operators for access to our web site. Many of
 these services have experienced significant service outages in the past and
 could experience service outages, delays and other difficulties due to
 system failures unrelated to our systems. These occurrences could cause our
 readers to perceive the web in general or our web site in particular as an
 unreliable medium and, therefore, cause them to use other media to obtain
 their financial news and information. We also depend on a number of
 information providers to deliver information and data feeds to us on a
 timely basis. Our web site could experience disruptions or interruptions in
 service due to the failure or delay in the transmission or receipt of this
 information, which could materially adversely affect our business, results
 of operations and financial condition. 
  
 A GENERAL DECLINE IN ONLINE ADVERTISING OR OUR INABILITY TO ADAPT TO TRENDS
 IN ONLINE ADVERTISING COULD HARM OUR ADVERTISING REVENUES 
  
      No standards have been widely accepted to measure the effectiveness of
 web advertising. If standards do not develop, existing advertisers may not
 continue or increase their levels of web advertising. If standards develop
 and we are unable to meet these standards, advertisers may not continue
 advertising on our site. Furthermore, advertisers that have traditionally
 relied upon other advertising media may be reluctant to advertise on the
 web. Our business, results of operations and financial condition could be
 materially adversely affected if the market for web advertising declines or
 develops more slowly than expected. 
  
      Different pricing models are used to sell advertising on the web. It
 is difficult to predict which, if any, will emerge as the industry
 standard. This uncertainty makes it difficult to project our future
 advertising rates and revenues. We cannot assure you that we will be
 successful under alternative pricing models that may emerge. Moreover,
 "filter" software programs that limit or prevent advertising from being
 delivered to a web user's computer are available. Widespread adoption of
 this software could materially adversely affect the commercial viability of
 web advertising, which could materially adversely affect our advertising
 revenues. 
  
      We compete with other web sites, television, radio and print media for
 a share of advertisers' total advertising budgets. If advertisers perceive
 the web in general or our web site in particular to be a limited or an
 ineffective advertising medium, they may be reluctant to devote a portion
 of their advertising budget to online advertising or to advertising on our
 web site. 
  
 GOVERNMENT REGULATION AND LEGAL UNCERTAINTIES RELATING TO THE WEB COULD
 INCREASE OUR COSTS OF TRANSMITTING DATA AND INCREASE OUR LEGAL AND
 REGULATORY EXPENDITURES AND COULD DECREASE OUR READER BASE 
  
      Existing domestic and international laws or regulations specifically
 regulate communications or commerce on the web. Further, laws and
 regulations that address issues such as user privacy, pricing, online
 content regulation, taxation and the characteristics and quality of online
 products and services are under consideration by federal, state, local and
 foreign governments and agencies. Several telecommunications companies have
 petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to regulate Internet
 service providers and online services providers in a manner similar to the
 regulation of long distance telephone carriers and to impose access fees on
 such companies. This regulation, if imposed, could increase the cost of
 transmitting data over the web. Moreover, it may take years to determine
 the extent to which existing laws relating to issues such as intellectual
 property ownership and infringement, libel, obscenity and personal privacy
 are applicable to the web. The Federal Trade Commission and government
 agencies in certain states have been investigating certain Internet
 companies regarding their use of personal information. We could incur
 additional expenses if any new regulations regarding the use of personal
 information are introduced or if these agencies chose to investigate our
 privacy practices. Any new laws or regulations relating to the web, or
 certain application or interpretation of existing laws, could decrease the
 growth in the use of the web, decrease the demand for our web site or
 otherwise materially adversely affect our business. 
  

 CONCERNS ABOUT WEB SECURITY COULD REDUCE OUR ADVERTISING REVENUES, DECREASE
 OUR READER BASE AND INCREASE OUR WEB SECURITY EXPENDITURES 
  
      Concern about the transmission of confidential information over the
 Internet has been a significant barrier to electronic commerce and
 communications over the web. Any well-publicized compromise of security
 could deter more people from using the web or from using it to conduct
 transactions that involve the transmission of confidential information,
 such as signing up for a paid subscription, executing stock trades or
 purchasing goods or services. Because many of our advertisers seek to
 advertise on our web site to encourage people to use the web to purchase
 goods or services, our business, results of operations and financial
 condition could be materially adversely affected if Internet users
 significantly reduce their use of the web because of security concerns. We
 may also incur significant costs to protect ourselves against the threat of
 security breaches or to alleviate problems caused by these breaches. 
  
 SHARES ELIGIBLE FOR PUBLIC SALE AFTER OUR INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING COULD
 ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR STOCK PRICE 
  
      As of June 30, 1999, there were outstanding 24,509,910 shares of our
 common stock.  Of these shares, the shares sold in our initial public
 offering are freely tradeable except for any shares purchased by our
 "affiliates" as defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act. The remaining
 shares will be "restricted securities," subject to the volume limitations
 and other conditions of Rule 144 under the Securities Act. 
  
      Our directors, executive officers, and substantially all of our
 current stockholders and optionholders have agreed, subject to limited
 exceptions, that during the period between May 10, 1999 through and 
 including November 6, 1999, that they will not, without the prior written
 consent of Goldman, Sachs & Co., directly or indirectly, offer to sell,
 sell or otherwise dispose of any shares of common stock. After the first
 anniversary of our initial public offering, some holders of common stock
 will have the right to request the registration of their shares under the
 Securities Act. Upon the effectiveness of that registration statement, all
 shares covered by that registration statement will be freely transferable. 
  
      We cannot predict if future sales of our common stock, or the
 availability of our common stock for sale, will materially adversely affect
 the market price for our common stock or our ability to raise capital by
 offering equity securities. 
  
 CONTROL BY PRINCIPAL STOCKHOLDERS, OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS COULD ADVERSELY
 AFFECT OUR STOCKHOLDERS 
  
      As of June 30, 1999, our officers, directors and greater-than-five-
 percent stockholders (and their affiliates), in the aggregate, beneficially
 own approximately 55% of the outstanding common stock. As a result, these
 persons, acting together, have the ability to control substantially all
 matters submitted to our stockholders for approval (including the election
 and removal of directors and any merger, consolidation or sale of all or
 substantially all of our assets) and to control our management and affairs.
 Accordingly, this concentration of ownership may have the effect of
 delaying, deferring or preventing a change in control of us, impeding a
 merger, consolidation, takeover or other business combination involving us
 or discouraging a potential acquirer from making a tender offer or
 otherwise attempting to obtain control of us, which in turn could
 materially adversely affect the market price of the common stock. 
  

 VOLATILITY OF OUR STOCK PRICE COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR STOCKHOLDERS 
  
      The stock market has experienced significant price and volume
 fluctuations and the market prices of securities of technology companies,
 particularly Internet-related companies, have been highly volatile.
 Investors may not be able to resell their shares at or above the price at
 which they bought them. 
  
      In the past, following periods of volatility in the market price of a
 company's securities, securities class action litigation has often been
 instituted against that company. The institution of similar litigation
 against us could result in substantial costs and a diversion of our
 management's attention and resources, which could materially adversely
 affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. 
  
 ANTI-TAKEOVER PROVISIONS COULD PREVENT OR DELAY A CHANGE OF CONTROL 
  
      Provisions of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation
 and amended and restated bylaws and Delaware law could make it more
 difficult for a third party to acquire us, even if doing so would be
 beneficial to our stockholders. 
  
 WE DO NOT INTEND TO PAY DIVIDENDS 
  
      We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock.
 We currently intend to retain any future earnings for funding growth and,
 therefore, do not expect to pay any dividends in the foreseeable future.

 PART II - OTHER INFORMATION 
       

 ITEM 1.        LEGAL PROCEEDINGS. 
  
      TheStreet.com, from time to time, becomes involved in various routine
 legal proceedings in the ordinary course of its business.  We believe that
 the outcome of all pending legal proceedings and unasserted claims in the
 aggregate will not have a material adverse effect on its results of
 operations, financial position or liquidity. 
  

 ITEM 2.        CHANGES IN SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS. 
  
      On May 14, 1999, TheStreet.com completed an initial public offering in
 which it sold an aggregate of 6,325,000 shares of its common stock, $0.01
 par value (including 741,667 shares from TheStreet.com and 83,333 shares
 from Kevin English, TheStreet.com's Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive
 Officer and President, subject to the underwriters' over-allotment option). 
 The managing underwriters in the offering were Goldman, Sachs & Co.,
 Hambrecht & Quist LLC and Thomas Weisel Partners LLC.  The shares of common
 stock sold in the offering were registered under the Securities Act of
 1933, as amended, on a Registration Statement on Form S-1 (Reg. No. 333-
 72799) (the "Registration Statement") that was declared effective by the
 Securities and Exchange Commission on May 10, 1999. All 6,325,000 shares of
 common stock registered under the Registration Statement were sold at a
 price of $19.00 per share for gross proceeds of $120,175,000.  Offering
 proceeds to TheStreet.com, net of underwriter discounts and commissions and
 other related expenses, were approximately $108.8 million. 
  
      Net offering proceeds received on May 14, 1999 from the initial
 public offering were used for general corporate purposes and to provide
 working capital to develop new products and expand internationally. Funds
 not used have been invested in short-term investment-grade instruments,
 certificates of deposit or direct or guaranteed obligations of the U.S.
 government. TheStreet.com also may use a portion of the net proceeds to
 acquire or invest in businesses, technologies, products or services,
 although no specific acquisitions have been made and no portion of the net
 proceeds has been allocated for any acquisition. None of the net offering
 proceeds of the initial public offering have been or will be paid directly
 or indirectly to any director, officer of TheStreet.com or their
 associates, persons owning 10% or more of any class of TheStreet.com's
 equity securities, or an affiliate of TheStreet.com.

                         STANDARD FORM OF OFFICE LEASE

       AGREEMENT OF LEASE, made as of this 22nd day of July, 1999, between
W12/14 WALL ACQUISITION ASSOCIATES LLC ("OWNER" or "LANDLORD"), a New York
limited liability company having an office c/o Stellar Management Co., 156
William Street, New York, New York 10038-11040, party of the first part,
and THESTREET.COM, INC. ("TENANT"), a Delaware corporation, having an
address at 2 Rector Street, New York, New York 10006, party of the second
part.

       WITNESSETH: Landlord hereby leases to Tenant and Tenant hereby hires
from Landlord, the entire rentable area of the fourteenth (14th) and
fifteenth (15th) floors as shown on the floor plan annexed hereto as
Exhibit A and made a part hereof (hereinafter called the "PREMISES" or the
"DEMISED PREMISES" or the "DEMISED PREMISES"), in the building known as 14
WALL STREET (hereinafter called the "BUILDING" or "BUILDING"), in the
Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, for the term and at the rental set
forth in Article 38 hereof.

       In the event that, at the commencement of the term of this lease, or
thereafter, Tenant shall be in default in the payment of rent to Owner
pursuant to the terms of another lease with Owner or with Owner's
predecessor in interest, Owner may at Owner's option and without
 notice to
Tenant add the amount of such arrears to any monthly installment of rent
payable hereunder and the same shall be payable to owner as additional
rent.

       The parties hereto, for themselves, their heirs, distributees,
executors, administrators, legal representatives, successors and assigns,
hereby covenant as follows:

1.     RENT:  Tenant shall pay the rent as above and as hereinafter provided.

2. Intentionally omitted.

3. Intentionally omitted.

4. MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS: Tenant shall, throughout the term of this
lease, take good care of the demised premises and the fixtures and
appurtenances therein. Tenant shall be responsible for all damage or injury
to the demised premises or any other part of the building and the systems
and equipment thereof, whether requiring structural or nonstructural
repairs to the extent caused by or resulting from carelessness, omission,
neglect or improper conduct of Tenant, Tenant's subtenants, agents,
employees, invitees or licensees, or which arise out of any work, labor,
service or equipment done for or supplied to Tenant or any subtenant or
arising out of the installation, use or operation of the property or
equipment of Tenant or any subtenant. Tenant shall also repair all damage
to the building and the demised premises caused by the moving by Tenant or
at Tenant's direction of Tenant's fixtures, furniture and equipment. Tenant
shall promptly make, at Tenant's expense, all repairs in and to the demised
premises for which Tenant is responsible, using only the contractor for the
trade or trades in question reasonably approved, in writing, by Owner. Any
other repairs in or to the building or the facilities and systems thereof
for which Tenant is responsible shall be performed by Owner at the Tenant's
expense. Owner shall maintain in good working order and repair the exterior
and the structural portions of the building, including the structural
portions of its demised premises, and the public portions of the building
interior and all building systems that service the demised premises,
including without limitation, exhausts, water, plumbing, electrical,
elevators, fire safety systems, heating, air conditioning and ventilation
systems, but excluding the distribution of any of the foregoing within the
demised premises. Tenant agrees to give prompt notice of any defective
condition in the premises for which Owner may be responsible hereunder upon
becoming aware thereof. There shall be no allowance to Tenant for
diminution of rental value and no liability on the part of Owner by reason
of inconvenience, annoyance or injury to business arising from Owner or
others making repairs, alterations, additions or improvements in or to any
portion of the building or the demised premises or in and to the fixtures,
appurtenances or equipment thereof. It is specifically agreed that Tenant
shall not be entitled to any setoff or reduction of rent by reason of any
failure of Owner to comply with the covenants of this or any other article
of this Lease. Tenant agrees that Tenant's sole remedy at law in such
instance will be by way of an action for damages for breach of contract.
The provisions of this Article 4 shall not apply in the case of fire or
other casualty which are dealt with in Article 9 hereof. Owner shall
perform any repair required pursuant to this Article 4 promptly, with
reasonable diligence under the circumstances and with reasonable efforts to
avoid interference with Tenant's business. Landlord shall use commercially
reasonable efforts to cause all work performed by Landlord pursuant to this
Article to be performed in a manner so as to minimize interference with the
conduct of Tenant's business in the Demised Premises, however nothing
contained in this lease shall require Landlord to incur overtime costs or
expenses or other bonus or incentive fees to perform work on a fast-track
or expedited basis.

5. WINDOW CLEANING: Tenant will not clean nor require, permit, suffer or
allow any window in the demised premises to be cleaned from the outside in
violation of Section 202 of the Labor Law or any other applicable law or of
the Rules of the Board of Standards and Appeals, or of any other Board or
body having or asserting jurisdiction.

6. REQUIREMENTS OF LAW, FIRE INSURANCE, FLOOR LOADS: Prior to the
commencement of the lease term, if Tenant is then in possession, and at all
times thereafter, Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, shall promptly
comply with all present and future laws, orders and regulations of all
state, federal, municipal and local governments, departments, commissions
and boards and any direction of any public officer pursuant to law, and all
orders, rules and regulations of the New York Board of Fire Underwriters,
Insurance Services Office, or any similar body which shall impose any
violation, order or duty upon Owner or Tenant with respect to the demised
premises, arising out of Tenant's manner of use thereof, or, with respect
to the building if arising out of Tenant's manner of use of the premises or
the building (including the type of business being conducted in the Demised
Premises), as opposed to the mere occupancy for office purposes. Nothing
herein shall require Tenant to make structural repairs or alterations
unless Tenant has, by its manner of use of the demised premises or method
of operation therein, violated any such laws, ordinances, orders, rules,
regulations or requirements with respect thereto. Tenant may, after
securing Owner to Owner's reasonable satisfaction against all damages,
interest, penalties and expenses, including, but not limited to, reasonable
attorney's fees, by cash deposit or by surety bond in an amount and in a
company reasonably satisfactory to Owner, contest and appeal any such laws,
ordinances, orders, rules, regulations or requirements provided same is
done with all reasonable promptness and provided such appeal shall not
subject Owner to prosecution for a criminal offense or constitute a default
under any lease or mortgage under which Owner may be obligated, or cause
the demised premises or any part thereof to be condemned or vacated. Tenant
shall not do or permit any act or thing to be done in or to the demised
premises which is contrary to law, or which will invalidate or be in
conflict with public liability, fire or other policies of insurance at any
time carried by or for the benefit of Owner with respect to the demised
premises or the building of which the demised premises form a part, or
which shall or might subject Owner to any liability or responsibility to
any person or for any property damage. Tenant shall not keep anything in
the demised premises except as now or hereafter permitted by the Fire
Department, Board of Fire Underwriters, Fire Insurance Rating Organization
or other authority having jurisdiction, and then only in such manner and
such quantity so as not to increase the rate for fire insurance applicable
to the building, nor use the premises in a manner which will increase the
insurance rate for the building or any property located therein over that
in effect prior to the commencement of Tenant's occupancy. Tenant shall pay
all costs, expenses, fines, penalties, or damages, which may be imposed
upon Owner by reason of Tenant's failure to comply with the provisions of
this article and if by reason of such failure the fire insurance rate
shall, at the beginning of this lease or at any time thereafter, be higher
than it otherwise would be, then Tenant shall reimburse Owner, as
additional rent hereunder, for that portion of all fire insurance premiums
thereafter paid by Owner which shall have been charged because of such
failure by Tenant. In any action or proceeding wherein Owner and Tenant are
parties, a schedule or "make-up" of rate for the building or demised
premises issued by the New York Fire Insurance Exchange, or other body
making fire insurance rates applicable to said premises shall be conclusive
evidence of the facts therein stated and of the several items and charges
in the fire insurance rates then applicable to said premises. Tenant shall
not place a load upon any floor of the demised premises exceeding the floor
load per square foot area which it was designed to carry and which is
allowed by law. Owner reserves the right to reasonably approve the weight
and position of all safes, business machines and mechanical equipment. Such
installations shall be placed and maintained by Tenant, at Tenant's
expense, in settings sufficient, in Owner's reasonable judgment, to absorb
and prevent vibration, noise and annoyance.

7. Intentionally omitted.

8. PROPERTY LOSS, DAMAGE REIMBURSEMENT INDEMNITY: Owner or its agents shall
not be liable for any damage to property of Tenant or of others entrusted
to employees of the building, nor for loss of or damage to any property of
Tenant by theft or otherwise, nor for any injury or damage to persons or
property resulting from any cause of whatsoever nature, unless caused by or
due to the negligence of Owner, its agents, servants or employees. Owner or
its agents will not be liable for any such damage caused by other tenants
or persons in, upon or about said building or caused by operations in
construction of any private, public or quasi public work. If at any time
any windows of the demised premises are temporarily closed, darkened or
bricked up (or permanently closed, darkened or bricked up, if required by
law) for any reason whatsoever including, but not limited to Owner's own
acts, Owner shall not be liable for any damage Tenant may sustain thereby
and Tenant shall not be entitled to any compensation therefor nor abatement
or diminution of rent nor shall the same release Tenant from its
obligations hereunder nor constitute an eviction. Tenant shall indemnify
and save harmless Owner against and from all liabilities, obligations,
damages, penalties, claims, costs and expenses for which Owner shall not be
reimbursed by insurance, including reasonable attorneys fees, paid,
suffered or incurred as a result of any breach by Tenant, Tenant's agents,
contractors, employees, invitees, or licensees, of any covenant or
condition of this lease, or to the extent resulting from the carelessness,
negligence or improper conduct of the Tenant, Tenant's agents, contractors,
employees, invitees or licensees. Tenant's liability under this lease
extends to the acts and omissions of any sub-tenant, and any agent,
contractor, employee, invitee or licensee of any sub-tenant. In case any
action or proceeding is brought against Owner by reason of any such claim,
Tenant, upon written notice from Owner, will, at Tenant's expense, resist
or defend such action or proceeding by counsel selected by Tenant, subject
to the reasonable approval of Owner. Owner agrees to obtain and maintain
casualty and liability insurance in amounts and pursuant to policies
normally maintained by owners of similar buildings in similar locations
within the City of New York.

9. DESTRUCTION, FIRE AND OTHER CASUALTY: (a) If the demised or any part
thereof shall be damaged by fire or other casualty, Tenant shall give
immediate notice thereof to Owner and this lease shall continue in full
force and effect except as hereinafter set forth. (b) If the demised
premises are partially damaged or rendered partially unusable by fire or
other casualty, the damages thereto shall be repaired by and at the expense
of Owner and the rent and other items of additional rent, until such repair
shall be substantially completed, shall be apportioned from the day
following the casualty according to the part of the premises which is
usable. (c) If the demised premises are totally damaged or rendered wholly
unusable by fire or other casualty, then the rent and other items of
additional rent as hereinafter expressly provided shall be proportionately
paid up to the time of the casualty and thenceforth shall cease thirty (30)
days after written notice from Owner that the premises shall have been
repaired and restored by Owner (or sooner reoccupied in part by Tenant then
rent shall be apportioned as provided in subsection (b) above), subject to
Owner's right to elect not to restore the same as hereinafter provided. (d)
If the demised premises are rendered wholly unusable or (whether or not the
demised premises are damaged in whole or in part) if the building shall be
so damaged that Owner shall decide to demolish it or to rebuild it, then,
in any of such events, Owner may elect to terminate this lease by written
notice to Tenant, given within 90 days after such fire or casualty, or 30
days after adjustment of the insurance claim for such fire or casualty,
whichever is sooner, specifying a date for the expiration of the lease,
which date shall not be more than 60 days after the giving of such notice,
and upon the date specified in such notice the term of this lease shall
expire as fully and completely as if such date were the date set forth
above for the termination of this lease and Tenant shall forthwith quit,
surrender and vacate the premises without prejudice however, to Landlord's
rights and remedies against Tenant under the lease provisions in effect
prior to such termination, and any rent owing shall be paid up to such date
and any payments of rent made by Tenant which were on account of any period
subsequent to such date shall be returned to Tenant. (Notwithstanding the
foregoing, unless the fire or casualty occurs during the last two years,
Owner may not exercise its right of termination set forth in this Section
(d), unless it has exercised it right to terminate other leases in the
Building in respect of at least fifty (50%) percent of rentable area of the
11th through 17th floors of the Building, when combined with the premises
then demised under this lease and all other leases between Owner and
Tenant.) Unless Owner shall serve a termination notice as provided for
herein, Owner shall make the repairs and restorations under the conditions
of (b) and (c) hereof, with all reasonable expedition, subject to delays
due to adjustment of insurance claims, labor troubles and causes beyond
Owner's control. After any such casualty, Tenant shall cooperate with
Owner's restoration by removing from the premises as promptly as reasonably
possible, all of Tenant's salvageable inventory and moveable equipment,
furniture, and other property. Tenant's liability for rent shall resume
thirty (30) days after written notice from Owner that the premises are
substantially ready for Tenant's occupancy. If any of the events described
in this Section (d) occur, and Owner does not elect to terminate this lease
as provided in this Section (d), then, within 90 days after such fire or
other casualty, Owner shall deliver to Tenant a statement (the
"CONTRACTOR'S STATEMENT") from a contractor, construction manager,
architect or engineer, reasonably selected by Owner, that sets forth such
contractor's, construction manager's, architect's or engineer's good faith
estimate as to when the repairs described in Section (b) above will be
substantially complete. The Contractor's Statement shall be without any
representation or warranty on the part of, or recourse against, Owner or
the person or entity that actually gives such statement, except for
Tenant's right to terminate this lease as expressly hereinafter provided in
the event that such statement is incorrect. Notwithstanding anything
contained in this Article 9 to the contrary, (A) if such contractor,
construction manager, architect or engineer estimates that the repairs
described in Section (b) above will be substantially complete more than
twelve (12) months after the date of the fire or other casualty, or (B) if
such contractor, construction manager, architect or engineer estimates that
such repairs will be substantially complete in no more than twelve (12)
months after the date of the fire or other casualty, but such repairs are
not substantially completed by the last day of the twelve (12) month period
commencing on the date of the fire or other casualty, or within such period
after such date (not exceeding three (3) months) as shall equal the
aggregate period Landlord may have been delayed in doing so by adjustment
of insurance, labor trouble, governmental controls, act of God, or any
other cause beyond Landlord's reasonable control (such twelve (12) month
period, as same may be so extending by up to an additional three (3)
months, being hereinafter referred to as the "RESTORATION PERIOD"), or (C)
if any such event occurs within the last twelve (12) months of the term of
this lease, as such term may be extended pursuant to Article 60 below,
then, provided said fire or other casualty was not caused by the act or
omission of Tenant or any of Tenant's employees, agents or contractors, or
by any person or entity claiming by, through or under Tenant, Tenant, as
Tenant's sole right and remedy, may elect to terminate this lease by
written notice to Landlord (such notice being hereinafter referred to as a
"TENANT ARTICLE 9 TERMINATION NOTICE") given within fifteen (15) days after
the date Tenant receives the Contractor's Statement, in the case of clause
(A), or within fifteen (15) days after the expiration of the Restoration
Period, in the case of clause (B), or within fifteen (15) days of such fire
or other casualty in the case of clause (C), TIME BEING OF THE ESSENCE WITH
RESPECT TO ALL OF SUCH DATES, in which event, the term of this lease shall
expire as fully and completely on the date which is thirty (30) days after
the date on which Tenant gives Landlord the Tenant Article 9 Termination
Notice, as if such date were the Expiration Date and Tenant shall forthwith
quit, surrender and vacate the demised premises in accordance with the
applicable provisions of this lease, without prejudice, however, to
Landlord's rights and remedies against Tenant under the provisions of this
lease in effect prior to such termination, and any fixed rent or additional
rent owing shall be paid up to such date and any payments of fixed rent or
additional rent made by Tenant which were on account of any period
subsequent to such date shall be returned to Tenant. If Tenant fails to
give Landlord the Tenant Article 9 Termination Notice in the manner and in
the time period set forth above or if said fire or other casualty was
caused by the act or omission of Tenant or any of Tenant's employees,
agents or contractors, or by person or entity claiming by, through or under
Tenant, or if such repairs are substantially completed by the last day of
the thirty (30) day period commencing on the date that Tenant gives
Landlord the Tenant Article 9 Termination Notice, then, notwithstanding
anything contained in this Article 9 to the contrary, Tenant's right to
terminate this lease shall be null and void, and of no further force or
effect, and this lease shall continue in full force and effect, subject to
the other provisions of this lease. (e) Nothing contained hereinabove shall
relieve Tenant or Owner from liability that may exist as a result of damage
from fire or other casualty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, including
Owner's obligation to restore under subparagraph (b) above, each party
shall look first to any insurance in its favor before making any claim
against the other party for recovery for loss or damage resulting from fire
or other casualty, and to the extent that such insurance is in force and
collectible and to the extent permitted by law, Owner and Tenant each
hereby releases and waives all right of recovery with respect to
subparagraphs (b), (d), and (e) above, against the other or any one
claiming through or under each of them by way of subrogation or otherwise.
The release and waiver herein referred to shall be deemed to include any
loss or damage to the demised premises and/or to any personal property,
equipment, trade fixtures, goods and merchandise located therein. The
foregoing release and waiver shall be in force only if both releasors'
insurance policies contain a clause providing that such a release or waiver
shall not invalidate the insurance. If, and to the extent that, such waiver
can be obtained only by the payment of additional premiums, then the party
benefiting from the waiver shall pay such premium within ten days after
written demand or shall be deemed to have agreed that the party obtaining
insurance coverage shall be free of any further obligation under the
provisions hereof with respect to waiver of subrogation. Tenant
acknowledges that Owner will not carry insurance on Tenant's furniture
and/or furnishings or any fixtures or equipment, improvements, or
appurtenances removable by Tenant and agrees that Owner will not be
obligated to repair any damage thereto or replace the same. (f) Tenant
hereby waives the provisions of Section 227 of the Real Property Law and
agrees that the provisions of this article shall govern and control in lieu
thereof.

10. EMINENT DOMAIN: If the whole or any part of the demised premises shall
be acquired or condemned by Eminent Domain for any public or quasi public
use or purpose, then and in that event, the term of this lease shall cease
and terminate from the date of title vesting in such proceeding and Tenant
shall have no claim for the value of any unexpired term of said lease and
assigns to Owner, Tenant's entire interest in any such award. Tenant shall
have the right to make an independent claim to the condemning authority for
the value of Tenant's moving expenses and personal property, trade fixtures
and equipment, provided Tenant is entitled pursuant to the terms of the
lease to remove such property, trade fixture and equipment at the end of
the term and provided further such claim does not reduce Owner's award.

11. Intentionally omitted.

12. ELECTRIC CURRENT: Rates and conditions in respect to submetering or
rent inclusion, as the case may be, to be added in RIDER attached hereto.

13. ACCESS TO PREMISES: Owner or Owner's agents shall have the right (but
shall not be obligated) to enter the demised premises in any emergency at
any time, and, at other reasonable times, upon reasonable notice (oral or
written) to Tenant, accompanied by a representative of Tenant (provided
that Tenant, at no cost to Owner, makes such representative available to
Owner as such reasonable times), to examine the same and to make such
repairs, replacements and improvements as Owner may deem necessary and
reasonably desirable to the demised premises or to any other portion of the
building or which Owner may elect to perform. Tenant shall permit Owner to
use and maintain and replace pipes and conduits in and through the demised
premises and to erect new pipes and conduits therein provided they are
concealed within the walls, floor, or ceiling. Owner may, during the
progress of any work in the demised premises, take all necessary materials
and equipment into said premises without the same constituting an eviction
nor shall the Tenant be entitled to any abatement of rent while such work
is in progress nor to any damages by reason of loss or interruption of
business or otherwise. Throughout the term hereof Owner shall have the
right to enter the demised premises at reasonable hours for the purpose of
showing the same to prospective purchasers or mortgagees of the building,
and during the last six months of the term for the purpose of showing the
same to prospective tenants. If Tenant is not present to open and permit an
entry into the demised premises, Owner or Owner's agents may enter the same
whenever such entry may be necessary or permissible by master key or
forcibly and provided reasonable care is exercised to safeguard Tenant's
property, such entry shall not render Owner or its agents liable therefor,
nor in any event shall the obligations of Tenant hereunder be affected. If
during the last month of the term Tenant shall have removed all or
substantially all of Tenant's property therefrom Owner may immediately
enter, alter, renovate or redecorate the demised premises without
limitation or abatement of rent, or incurring liability to Tenant for any
compensation and such act shall have no effect on this lease or Tenant's
obligations hereunder. Landlord shall exercise reasonable diligence to
perform all work described in this Article 13 in a manner so as to minimize
to the extent possible interference with Tenant's operations, except that
nothing contained in this lease shall require Owner to incur overtime costs
or expenses or other bonus or incentive fees to perform work on a
fast-track or expedited basis.

14. VAULT, VAULT SPACE, AREA: No Vaults, vault space or area, whether or
not enclosed or covered, not within the property line of the building is
leased hereunder, anything contained in or indicated on any sketch, blue
print or plan, or anything contained elsewhere in this lease to the
contrary notwithstanding. Owner makes no representation as to the location
of the property line of the building. All vaults and vault space and all
such areas not within the property line of the building, which Tenant may
be permitted to use and/or occupy, is to be used and/or occupied under a
revocable license, and if any such license be revoked, or if the amount of
such space or area be diminished or required by any federal, state or
municipal authority or public utility, Owner shall not be subject to any
liability nor shall Tenant be entitled to any compensation or diminution or
abatement of rent, nor shall such revocation, diminution or requisition be
deemed constructive or actual eviction. Any tax, fee or charge of municipal
authorities for such vault or area shall be paid by Tenant.

15. OCCUPANCY: Tenant will not at any time use or occupy the demised
premises in violation of the certificate of occupancy issued for the
building of which the demised premises are a part. Tenant has inspected the
premises and accepts them as is, subject to the riders annexed hereto with
respect to Owner's work or latent defect, if any. In any event, Owner makes
no representation as to the condition of the premises and Tenant agrees to
accept the same subject to violations, whether or not of record.

16. BANKRUPTCY: (a) Anything else in this lease to the contrary
notwithstanding, this lease may be cancelled by Owner by the sending of a
written notice to Tenant within a reasonable time after the happening of
any one or more of the following events: (1) the commencement of a case in
bankruptcy or under the laws of any state naming Tenant as the debtor
which, for such a case that is commenced by a person or entity other than
Tenant (or a person or entity that controls, is controlled by or is under
common control with, Tenant), is not dismissed within sixty (60) days after
the commencement of such case; or (2) the making by Tenant of an assignment
or any other arrangement for the benefit of creditors under any state
statute. Neither Tenant nor any person claiming through or under Tenant, or
by reason of any statute or order of court, shall thereafter be entitled to
possession of the premises demised but shall forthwith quit and surrender
the premises. If this lease shall be assigned in accordance with its terms,
the provisions of this Article 16 shall be applicable only to the party
then owning Tenant's interest in this lease.

       (b) it is stipulated and agreed that in the event of the termination
of this lease pursuant to (a) hereof, Owner shall forthwith,
notwithstanding any other provisions of this lease to the contrary, be
entitled to recover from Tenant as and for liquidated damages an amount
equal to the difference between the rent reserved hereunder for the
unexpired portion of the term demised and the fair and reasonable rental
value of the demised premises for the same period. In the computation of
such damages the difference between any installment of rent becoming due
hereunder after the date of termination and the fair and reasonable rental
value of the demised premises for the period for which such installment was
payable shall be discounted to the date of termination at the rate of four
percent (4%) per annum. If such premises or any part thereof be re-let by
the Owner for the unexpired term of said lease, or any part thereof, before
presentation of proof of such liquidated damages to any court, commission
or tribunal, the amount of rent reserved upon such re-letting shall be
deemed to be the fair and reasonable rental value for the part or the whole
of the premises so re-let during the term of the re-letting. Nothing herein
contained shall limit or prejudice the right of the Owner to prove for and
obtain as liquidated damages by reason of such termination, an amount equal
to the maximum allowed by any statute or rule of law in effect at the time
when, and governing the proceedings in which, such damages are to be
proved, whether or not such amount be greater, equal to, or less than the
amount of the difference referred to above.

17. DEFAULT: (1) If Tenant defaults in fulfilling any of the covenants of
this lease including the covenants for the payment of rent or additional
rent; or if the demised premises become abandoned; or if any execution or
attachment shall be issued against Tenant or any of Tenant's property
whereupon the demised premises shall be taken or occupied by someone other
than Tenant; or if this lease be rejected under ss.235 of Title 11 of the
U.S. Code (bankruptcy code); then, in any one or more of such events, upon
Owner serving upon Tenant a written ten (10) day notice for a default in
the payment of fixed rent or additional rent (as such terms are hereinafter
defined), or a written thirty (30) day notice for all other defaults under
this lease (such other defaults being hereinafter referred to as
"NON-MONETARY DEFAULTS") specifying the nature of the default and upon the
expiration of said ten (10) day or thirty (30) day period, as the case may
be, if Tenant shall have failed to comply with or remedy such default, or
if the Non-Monetary Default complained of shall be of a nature that the
same cannot be completely cured or remedied within said thirty (30) day
period, and shall not thereafter with reasonable diligence and in good
faith, proceed to remedy or cure such default, then Owner may serve a
written five (5) days' notice of cancellation of this lease upon Tenant,
and upon the expiration of said five (5) days this lease and the term
thereunder shall end and expire as fully and completely as if the
expiration of such five (5) day period were the day herein definitely fixed
for the end and expiration of this lease and the term thereof and Tenant
shall then quit and surrender the demised premises to Owner but Tenant
shall remain liable as hereinafter provided. Notwithstanding anything
contained in this Section 17(1) to the contrary, if Tenant fails to execute
and deliver the statement described in Article 54 below within the thirty
(30) day period set forth therein, and Tenant shall have failed to execute
and deliver such statement within ten (10) days after the giving to Tenant
of notice of such failure, Owner may serve the written three (3) days'
notice of cancellation of this lease as set forth above, and Tenant shall
have no right to extend such ten (10) day cure period.

       (2) If the notice provided for in (1) hereof shall have been given,
and the term shall expire as aforesaid; then and in any of such events
Owner may without notice, re-enter the demised premises either by force or
otherwise, and dispossess Tenant by summary proceedings or otherwise, and
the legal representative of Tenant or other occupant of demised premises
and remove their effects and hold the premises as if this lease had not
been made, and Tenant hereby waives the service of notice of intention to
re-enter or to institute legal proceedings to that end.

18. REMEDIES OF OWNER AND WAIVER OF REDEMPTION: In case of any such default
(after the giving of any required notice and the expiration of any
applicable cure period), re-entry, expiration and/or dispossess by summary
proceedings or otherwise, (a) the rent shall become due thereupon and be
paid up to the time of such re-entry, dispossess and/or expiration, (b)
Owner may re-let the premises or any part or parts thereof, either in the
name of Owner or otherwise, for a term or terms, which may at Owner's
option be less than or exceed the period which would otherwise have
constituted the balance of the term of this lease and may grant concessions
or free rent or charge a higher rental than that in this lease, and/or (c)
Tenant or the legal representatives of Tenant shall also pay Owner as
liquidated damages for the failure of Tenant to observe and perform said
Tenant's covenants herein contained, any deficiency between the rent hereby
reserved and/or covenanted to be paid and the net amount, if any, of the
rents collected on account of the lease or leases of the demised premises
for each month of the period which would otherwise have constituted the
balance of the term of this lease. The failure of Owner to re-let the
premises or any part or parts thereof shall not release or affect Tenant's
liability for damages. In computing such liquidated damages there shall be
added to the said deficiency such expenses as Owner may incur in connection
with re-letting, such as legal expenses, reasonable attorneys' fees,
brokerage, advertising and for keeping the demised premises in good order
or for preparing the same for re-letting. Any such liquidated damages shall
be paid in monthly installments by Tenant on the rent day specified in this
lease and any suit brought to collect the amount of the deficiency for any
month shall not prejudice in any way the rights of Owner to collect the
deficiency for any subsequent month by a similar proceeding. Owner, in
putting the demised premises in good order or preparing the same for
re-rental may, at Owner's option, make such alterations, repairs,
replacements, and/or decorations in the demised premises as Owner, in
Owner's sole judgment, considers advisable and necessary for the purpose of
re-letting the demised premises, and the making of such alterations,
repairs, replacements, and/or decorations shall not operate or be construed
as to release Tenant from liability hereunder as aforesaid. Owner shall in
no event be liable in any way whatsoever for failure to re-let the demised
premises, or in the event that the demised premises are re-let, for failure
to collect the rent thereof under such re-letting, and in no event shall
Tenant be entitled to receive any excess, if any, of such net rents
collected over the sums payable by Tenant to Owner hereunder. In the event
of a breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any of the covenants or
provisions hereof, Owner shall have the right of injunction and the right
to invoke any remedy allowed at law or in equity as if re-entry, summary
proceedings and other remedies were not herein provided for. Mention in
this lease of any particular remedy shall not preclude Owner from any other
remedy, in law or in equity. Tenant hereby expressly waives any and all
rights of redemption granted by or under any present or future laws in the
event of Tenant being evicted or dispossessed for any cause, or in the
event of Owner obtaining possession of demised premises, by reason of the
violation by Tenant of any of the covenants and conditions of this lease
(after the giving of any required notice and the expiration of any
applicable cure period), or otherwise.

19. FEES AND EXPENSES: If Tenant shall default in the observance or
performance of any term or covenant on Tenant's part to be observed or
performed under or by virtue of any of the terms or provisions in any
article of this lease, after notice if required and upon expiration of any
applicable grace period if any, (except in an emergency), then, unless
otherwise provided elsewhere in this lease, Owner may (after the giving of
any required notice and the expiration of any applicable cure period) or
(in the case of an emergency) immediately or at any time thereafter and
without notice perform the obligation of Tenant thereunder. If Owner, in
connection with the foregoing or in connection with any default (after the
giving of any required notice and the expiration of any applicable cure
period) or (in the case of an emergency) by Tenant in the covenant to pay
rent hereunder, makes any expenditures or incurs any obligations for the
payment of money, including but not limited to reasonable attorneys' fees,
in instituting, prosecuting or defending any action or proceeding, and
prevails in any such action or proceeding then Tenant will reimburse Owner
for such sums so paid or obligations incurred with interest and costs. The
foregoing expenses incurred by reason of Tenant's default shall be deemed
to be additional rent hereunder and shall be paid by Tenant to Owner within
thirty (30) days of rendition of any bill or statement to Tenant therefor.
If Tenant's lease term shall have expired at the time of making of such
expenditures or incurring of such obligations, such sums shall be
recoverable by Owner, as damages.

20. BUILDING ALTERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT: Owner shall have the right at any
time without the same constituting an eviction and without incurring
liability to Tenant therefor to change the arrangement and/or location of
public entrances, passageways, doors, doorways, corridors, elevators,
stairs, toilets or other public parts of the building provided that access
to the demised premises and the Building is not materially or unreasonably
reduced or materially or unreasonably adversely affected thereby and the
usable floor area of the demised premises is not reduced (except to a de
minimis extent), and to change the name, number or designation by which the
building may be known. There shall be no allowance to Tenant for diminution
of rental value and no liability on the part of Owner by reason of
inconvenience, annoyance or injury to business arising from Owner or other
Tenants making any repairs in the building or any such alterations,
additions and improvements. Furthermore, Tenant shall not have any claim
against Owner by reason of Owner's imposition of such controls of the
manner of access to the building by Tenant's social or business visitors as
the Owner may deem necessary for the security of the building and its
occupants. Landlord agrees to use reasonable efforts to perform all
alterations, additions or improvements described in this Article 20 in a
manner so that such work shall not interfere with Tenant's access to the
demised premises or materially or unreasonably reduce the usable square
footage of the demised premises, unless otherwise required by applicable
law, however nothing contained in this lease shall require Landlord to
incur overtime costs or expenses or other bonus or incentive fees to
perform work on a fast-track or expedited basis.

21. NO REPRESENTATIONS BY OWNER: Neither Owner nor Owner's agents have made
any representations or promises with respect to the physical condition of
the building, the land upon which it is erected or the demised premises,
the rents, leases, expenses of operation or any other matter or thing
affecting or related to the premises except as herein expressly set forth
and no rights, easements or licenses are acquired by Tenant by implication
or otherwise except as expressly set forth in the provisions of this lease.
Tenant has inspected the demised premises and is thoroughly acquainted with
their condition and, except as otherwise expressly specified in Section
41A, agrees to take the same "as is" and acknowledges that the taking of
possession of the demised premises by Tenant shall be conclusive evidence
that the said premises were in good and satisfactory condition at the time
such possession was so taken, except as to latent defects. All
understandings and agreements heretofore made between the parties hereto
are merged in this contract, which alone fully and completely expresses the
agreement between Owner and Tenant and any executory agreement hereafter
made shall be ineffective to change, modify, discharge or effect an
abandonment of it in whole or in part, unless such executory agreement is
in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement of the change,
modification, discharge or abandonment is sought.

22. END OF TERM: Upon the expiration or other termination of the term of
this lease, Tenant shall quit and surrender to Owner the demised premises,
broom clean, in good order and condition, ordinary wear and damages which
Tenant is not required to repair as provided elsewhere in this lease
excepted, and Tenant shall remove all of its property that Tenant is
required to remove pursuant to the terms of this lease. Tenant's obligation
to observe or perform this covenant shall survive the expiration or other
termination of this lease. If the last day of the term of this Lease or any
renewal thereof, falls on Sunday, this lease shall expire at noon on the
preceding Saturday unless it be a legal holiday in which case it shall
expire at noon on the preceding business day.

23. QUIET ENJOYMENT: Owner covenants and agrees with Tenant that upon
Tenant paying the rent and additional rent and observing and performing all
the terms, covenants and conditions, on Tenant's part to be observed and
performed, Tenant may peaceably and quietly enjoy the premises hereby
demised and the Roof Space upon Tenant also paying the Use Fee, subject,
nevertheless, to the terms and conditions of this lease including, but not
limited to, Article 31 hereof.

24. Intentionally omitted.

25. NO WAIVER: The failure of Owner or Tenant to seek redress for violation
of, or to insist upon the strict performance of any covenant or condition
of this lease or the failure of Owner to insist upon the strict performance
of any of the Rules and Regulations, set forth or hereafter adopted by
Owner, shall not prevent a subsequent act which would have originally
constituted a violation from having all the force and effect of an original
violation. The receipt by Owner or payment by Tenant of rent and/or
additional rent with knowledge of the breach of any covenant of this lease
shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach and no provision of this lease
shall be deemed to have been waived by Owner or Tenant unless such waiver
be in writing signed by Owner or Tenant, as the case may be. No payment by
Tenant or receipt by Owner of a lesser amount than the monthly rent herein
stipulated shall be deemed to be other than on account of the earliest
stipulated rent, nor shall any endorsement or statement of any check or any
letter accompanying any check or payment as rent be deemed an accord and
satisfaction, and Owner may accept such check or payment without prejudice
to Owner's right to recover the balance of such rent or pursue any other
remedy in this lease provided. No act or thing done by Owner or Owner's
agents during the term hereby demised shall be deemed an acceptance of a
surrender of said premises, and no agreement to accept such surrender shall
be valid unless in writing signed by Owner. No employee of Owner or Owner's
agents shall have any power to accept the keys of said premises prior to
the termination of the lease and the delivery of keys to any such agent or
employee shall not operate as a termination of the lease or a surrender of
the premises.

26. WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY: It is mutually agreed by and between Owner and
Tenant that the respective parties hereto shall and they hereby do waive
trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either
of the parties hereto against the other (except for personal injury or
property damage) on any matters whatsoever arising out of or in any way
connected with this lease, the relationship of Owner and Tenant, Tenant's
use of or occupancy of said premises, and any emergency statutory or any
other statutory remedy. It is further mutually agreed that in the event
Owner commences any proceeding or action for possession including a summary
proceeding for possession of the premises, Tenant will not interpose any
counterclaim of whatever nature or description in any such proceeding
including a counterclaim under Article 4 except for statutory mandatory
counterclaims.

27. INABILITY TO PERFORM: This Lease and the obligations of Tenant to pay
rent hereunder and perform all of the other covenants and agreements
hereunder on part of Tenant to be performed shall in no ways be affected,
impaired or excused because Owner is unable to fulfill any of its
obligations under this lease or to supply or is delayed in supplying any
service expressly or impliedly to be supplied or is unable to make, or is
delayed in making any repair, additions, alterations or decorations or is
unable to supply or is delayed in supplying any equipment, fixtures, or
other materials if Owner is prevented or delayed from so doing by reason of
strike or labor troubles or any cause whatsoever, including, but not
limited to, government preemption or restrictions or by reason of any rule,
order or regulation of any department or subdivision thereof of any
government agency or by reason of the conditions which have been or are
affected, either directly or indirectly, by war or other emergency.

for the sale or display, at any time, of goods, wares or merchandise, of
any kind, or as a restaurant, shop, booth, bootblack or other stand, barber
shop, or for other similar purposes or for manufacturing. The term "Owner"

or the mortgagee in possession, for the time being of the land and building
(or the owner of a lease of the building or of the land and building) of
which the demised premises form a part, so that in the event of any sale or
sales of said land and building or of said lease, or in the event of a
lease of said building, or of the land and building, the said Owner shall
be and hereby is entirely freed and relieved of all covenants and
obligations of Owner hereunder, and it shall be deemed and construed
without further agreement between the parties or their successors in
interest, or between the parties and the purchaser, at any such sale, or
the said lessee of the building, or of the land and building, that the
purchaser or the lessee of the building has assumed and agreed to carry out
any and all covenants and obligations of Owner, hereunder. The words
"re-enter" and "re-entry" as used in this lease are not restricted to their
technical legal meaning.

32. ADJACENT EXCAVATION-SHORING: If an excavation shall be made upon land
adjacent to the demised premises, or shall be authorized to be made, Tenant
shall afford to the person causing or authorized to cause such excavation,
license to enter upon the demised premises for the purpose of doing such
work as said person shall deem necessary to preserve the wall or the
building of which demised premises form a part from injury or damage and to
support the same by proper foundations without any claim for damages or
indemnity against Owner, or diminution or abatement of rent.

33. RULES AND REGULATIONS: Tenant and Tenant's servants, employees, agents,
visitors, and licensees shall observe faithfully, and comply strictly with,
the Rules and Regulations and such other and further reasonable Rules and
Regulations as Owner or Owner's agents may from time to time adopt. Notice
of any additional rules or regulations shall be provided in Article 57 of
this lease. In case Tenant disputes the reasonableness of any additional
Rule or Regulation hereafter made or adopted by Owner or Owner's agents,
the parties hereto agree to submit the question of reasonableness of such
Rule or Regulation for decision to the New York office of the American
Arbitration Association, whose determination shall be final and conclusive
upon the parties hereto. The right to dispute the reasonableness of any
additional Rule or Regulation upon Tenant's part shall be deemed waived
unless the same shall be asserted by service of a notice, in writing upon
Owner within thirty (30) days after the giving of notice thereof. Nothing
in this lease contained shall be construed to impose upon Owner any duty or
obligation to enforce the Rules and Regulations or terms, covenants or
conditions in any other lease, as against any other tenant and Owner shall
not be liable to Tenant for violation of the same by any other tenant, its
servants, employees, agents, visitors or licensees. In the event of a
discrepancy between the Rules and Regulations and the terms of this lease,
the terms of this lease shall govern. Owner agrees to enforce all Rules and
Regulations against the tenants of the building in a uniform manner.

building, for the satisfaction of Tenant's remedies for the collection of a
judgment (or other judicial process) against Owner in the event of any
default by Owner hereunder, and no other property or assets of such Owner
(or any partner, member, officer or director thereof, disclosed or

procedure for the satisfaction of Tenant's remedies under or with respect
to this lease, the relationship of Owner and Tenant hereunder, or Tenant's

              A. The term of this lease for which the demised premises are
hereby leased, shall commence on the date hereof (hereinafter referred to
as the "COMMENCEMENT DATE"), and shall expire on the date (hereinafter
referred to as the "EXPIRATION DATE") which is the last day of the fourth
(4th) calendar month following the calendar month in which occurs the tenth
(10th) anniversary of the Commencement Date, or shall expire on such
earlier date upon which said term may expire or be cancelled or terminated
pursuant to any of the conditions or covenants of this lease or pursuant to
law. If either party requests the other party to enter into an agreement
fixing the Commencement Date, the Substantial Completion Date and the
Expiration Date, the parties shall execute and deliver a recordable
supplementary agreement fixing the Commencement Date, the Substantial
Completion Date and the Expiration Date, in form reasonably satisfactory to
both parties, but either party's failure to make such request or either
party's failure to execute or deliver such agreement shall in no way affect
such dates.

       B.     The "RENTS" reserved under this lease, for the term thereof,
shall be and consist of:

              (a)    "FIXED RENT" of:

Date and ending on the last day of the calendar month immediately preceding
the calendar month in which occurs the second (2nd) anniversary of the
Commencement Date, both dates inclusive;

                     (ii)   $2,008,917.00 per year ($167,409.00 per month)
for the three (3) year period (the "SECOND RENT PERIOD") commencing on the
date next succeeding the last day of the First Rent Period; and

                     (iii)  $2,147,463.00 per year ($178,955.00 per month)
for the period (the "THIRD RENT PERIOD") commencing on the date next
succeeding the last day of the Second Rent Period and continuing thereafter
through the remainder of the initial term of this lease, all of which
Tenant covenants and agrees to pay in equal monthly installments in advance
of the first day of each and every calendar month during the term of this
lease, except that together with its execution and delivery of this lease,
Tenant shall pay the sum of $161,637.00, to be applied against the first
monthly installment(s) of fixed rent becoming due under this lease; and

              (b) "ADDITIONAL RENT" consisting of all such other sums of
money as shall become due from and payable by Tenant to Landlord hereunder
(for default (after the giving of any required notice and after the
expiration of any applicable cure period), in payment of which Landlord
shall have the same remedies as for a default (after the giving of any
required notice and after the expiration of any applicable cure period), in
payment of fixed rent), all to be paid to Landlord at its office, or such
other place, or to such agent and at such place, as Landlord may designate
by notice to Tenant, in lawful money of the United States of America.

       C. Tenant shall pay the fixed rent and additional rent herein
reserved promptly as and when the same shall become due and payable,
without demand therefor and without any abatement, deduction or set-off
whatsoever except as expressly provided in this lease.

       D. If the Commencement Date occurs on a day other than the first day
of a calendar month, the fixed rent for such calendar month shall be
prorated and the balance of the first month's fixed rent theretofore paid
shall be credited against the next monthly installment of fixed rent.

       E. Each and every covenant contained in this Article shall be deemed
separate and independent, and not dependent on any other term of this lease
for the use and occupancy of the demised premises by Tenant, and the
performance of any such term shall not be considered to be for rent or
other payment for use of the demised premises. It is understood that the
consideration for the covenants in this Article is the making of this
lease, and the damages for failure to perform same shall be in addition to
and separate and independent of the damages accruing by reason of default
in observing any other term of this lease.

       F. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article to the
contrary, but provided Tenant is not then, and continues thereafter not to
be during the Free Rent Period (as hereinafter defined), in default (after
the giving of any required notice and after the expiration of any
applicable cure period) under any of the terms, covenants or conditions in
this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply with, Tenant
shall not be obligated to pay the first 120 days of fixed rent payable
under this lease. The date which is the 121st day after the Commencement
Date is hereinafter referred to as the "RENT COMMENCEMENT DATE," and the
period commencing on the Commencement Date and ending on the date next
preceding the Rent Commencement Date is herein defined as the "FREE RENT
PERIOD."

              (a) "TAXES" shall mean the real estate taxes, assessments and
special assessments imposed upon the Building and the land on which the
Building is situated (hereinafter called the "LAND"). If, at any time
during the term of this lease, the methods of taxation prevailing on the

for the whole or any part of the taxes, assessments, levies, impositions,
or charges now levied, assessed, or imposed on real estate and the
improvements thereon, there shall be levied, assessed or imposed (i) a tax,
assessment, levy, imposition, or charge wholly or partially as a capital
levy or otherwise on the rents received therefrom, (ii) a tax, assessment,
levy, imposition, or charge measured by, or based in whole or in part upon,
the demised premises and imposed upon Landlord, or (iii) a license fee
measured by the rents payable by Tenant to Landlord, then all such taxes,
assessments, levies, impositions, or charges, or the part thereof so
measured or based, shall be deemed to be included within the term Taxes for
the purposes hereof.

              (b) "TAX YEAR" shall mean the fiscal year for which Taxes are
levied by the governmental authority.

              (c) "BASE TAXES" shall mean the Taxes for the 1999/2000 Tax
Year, as finally determined.

              (d) "TENANT'S PROPORTIONATE SHARE" shall mean 7.508%.

              (e) "TAX PAYMENT" shall mean Tenant's Proportionate Share
multiplied by the amount, if any, by which the Taxes for the subject Tax
Year exceeds the Base Taxes, but in no event shall the Tax Payment be less
than zero.

              (f) "TENANT'S PROJECTED TAX PAYMENT" shall mean for the
2000/2001 Tax Year, 7% of the Base Taxes, multiplied by Tenant's
Proportionate Share, and for the immediately following Tax Year and each
and every Tax Year thereafter, 107% of the Tax Payment for the Tax Year
immediately preceding the subject Tax Year, which Tenant's Projected Tax
Payment shall be applied to the Tax Payment for the subject Tax Year, as
more particularly provided in subsection B(b) below.

       B. (a) Commencing with the 2000/2001 Tax Year, and continuing
thereafter throughout the balance of the term of this lease, Tenant shall
pay, as additional rent, the Tax Payment for such Tax Year and for each and
every Tax Year thereafter that occurs (in whole or in part) during the term
of this lease, as more particularly provided in subsection C(a) below.

              (b) On account of Tenant's obligations to pay the Tax
Payment, commencing on the later of the Commencement Date and July 1, 1999
and continuing thereafter throughout the balance of the term of the this
lease, Tenant shall pay, in equal monthly installments, the Tenant's
Projected Tax Payment for the 2000/2001 Tax Year and for each and every Tax
Year thereafter that occurs (in whole or in part) during the term of this
lease. Tenant's Projected Tax Payment(s) shall be set forth in a statement
furnished to Tenant, which statement shall be accompanied by a copy of the
tax bill for the Tax Year immediately preceding the subject Tax Year and
shall set forth Landlord's calculation of the Tenant's Projected Tax
Payment for the subject Tax Year. As of the first (1st) day of each and
every Tax Year occurring during the term of this Lease, the Tenant's
Projected Tax Payment shall be automatically adjusted in accordance with
Section A(f) above.

       C. (a) After Landlord receives the tax bill for the subject Tax
Year, Tenant shall be furnished with a statement, which statement shall be
accompanied by the tax bill for the subject Tax Year and shall set forth
the Tax Payment for the subject Tax Year; the amount of Tenant's Projected
Tax Payments paid by Tenant for the subject Tax Year; the amount of any
overpayment or underpayment of the Tax Payment (i.e., the difference
between the Tax Payment and the amount of Tenant's Projected Tax Payment
paid by Tenant); and Landlord's calculation of the Tenant's Projected Tax
Payment for the next Tax Year, which Tenant's Projected Tax Payment shall
be paid in accordance with Section B above. If such statement indicates an
underpayment of the Tax Payment, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the amount of
the underpayment within ten (10) days after it is furnished with such
statement. If such statement indicates an overpayment of the Tax Payment,
Landlord, at Landlord's option, shall either refund promptly the
overpayment to Tenant, or apply the overpayment to the next installment of
the Tenant's Projected Tax Payment or fixed rent due under this lease;
provided that if such statement is furnished to Tenant after the expiration
of the term of this lease, and no default under this lease on the part of
Tenant is then uncured, Landlord shall refund such overpayment to Tenant
within thirty (30) days after the furnishing of such statement.

              (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, at such times that the
Landlord's lender does not require Landlord to make monthly payments on
account of Taxes, or at such times that there is no mortgage encumbering
the Building, Tax Payments may be payable by Tenant when Landlord's
payments of Taxes are payable to the taxing authorities. In such event: (i)
after Landlord receives the tax bill for the subject Tax Year, Tenant shall
be furnished with a statement, accompanied by a copy of such tax bill,
indicating the Taxes for the subject Tax Year, the Base Taxes and the Tax
Payment for the subject Tax Year. Tenant shall pay the Tax Payment within
thirty (30) days after Landlord gives the corresponding Tax Statement to
Tenant; or (ii) if Taxes are payable by Landlord in installments, Tenant
shall pay the portion of the Tax Payment that corresponds to the first
(1st) of such installments within such thirty (30) day period, and shall
pay the balance of the Tax Payment at least thirty (30) days prior to the
date on which the next installment of the Taxes are due and payable by
Landlord without penalty or interest; or (iii) if Landlord has not received
a bill for Taxes for a subject Tax Year at the time when any Taxes are due,
Tenant shall pay Taxes within thirty (30) days after Landlord makes a
written request for such Tax Payment.

              (c) Each statement furnished under this Section C above is
hereinafter called a "TAX STATEMENT." Every Tax Statement furnished to
Tenant shall be conclusive and binding upon Tenant, unless Tenant shall
notify Landlord within ninety (90) days after its receipt of such statement
that it disputes the correctness of the computations made therein,
specifying the particular respects in which such computations are claimed
to be incorrect. Pending the resolution of such dispute, Tenant shall pay
any additional rent due in accordance therewith, but such payment shall be
without prejudice to Tenant's position. If the dispute shall be resolved in
Tenant's favor, Landlord shall, within ten (10) days after Tenant's demand
therefor, pay Tenant the amount of Tenant's overpayment of rents, if any,
resulting from compliance with the disputed Tax Statement, plus, (if such
overpayment exceeded the amount finally determined to be payable by more
than ten percent (10%) of the amount actually payable by Tenant), interest
on the amount overpaid, at the Applicable Rate (hereinafter defined), from
the date Landlord receives Tenant's dispute notice to the date of
reimbursement.

       D. (a) Notwithstanding the fact that the aforesaid increase in rent
is measured by an increase in taxes, such increase is additional rent and
shall be paid by Tenant as herein provided regardless of the fact that
Tenant may be exempt, in whole or in part, from the payment of any taxes by
reason of Tenant's diplomatic or other tax exempt status or for any other
reason whatsoever.

              (b) In no event whatsoever shall the fixed rent be reduced
below the fixed rent initially set forth in Section 38B, except as
otherwise expressly provided in Article 58 below.

              (c) In the event that the holder of any superior mortgage or
the lessor of any superior lease (as such terms are defined in Article 50
hereof) shall require advance payments from Landlord on account of Taxes,
then Tenant will pay Tenant's Proportionate Share of any amounts required
to be paid in advance by Landlord with the holder of the superior mortgage
or the lessor of the superior lease to the extent that such payments made
by Landlord exceed the Base Taxes. Any payments to be made by Tenant under
this subsection (c) shall be made on the later (i) of thirty (30) days
after Landlord issues a statement therefor or (ii) thirty (30) days prior
to the date Landlord is required to make such payments to the holder of the
superior mortgage or the lessor of the superior lease.

       E. Only Landlord shall be eligible to institute tax reduction or
other proceedings to reduce Taxes. Landlord shall institute such
proceedings as Landlord (in good faith, but otherwise in its sole judgment)
deems advisable to minimize the Taxes. If Landlord is successful in any
such reduction proceedings and obtains a refund or a reduction in Taxes for
periods during which Tenant has paid or is obligated to pay a Tax Payment,
then, after deducting its expenses, including without limitation,
attorneys' fees and disbursements in connection with such refund, reduction
or other benefit to Tenant, and either (a) Landlord shall return Tenant's
Proportionate Share of each refund to Tenant or, (b) if a reduction in
Taxes is obtained prior to the date Tenant is required to pay the Tax
Payment, the Taxes for the subject Tax Year shall be deemed reduced by such
reduction.

       F.     OPERATING EXPENSES.  For purposes of this Article:

              (a) "OPERATING EXPENSES" shall mean all expenses incurred by
Landlord in connection with the operation, maintenance and repair of the

sale or transfer of all or any portion of the Building or any interest
therein or in any person or entity of whatever tier owning an interest
therein; (R) lease takeover or take back costs incurred by Landlord in
connection with leases in the Building; (S) costs, which would otherwise be
and Operating Expense, for which (and to the extent) Landlord is actually
reimbursed through the proceeds of insurance or for which Landlord would
have been compensated by insurance had it carried the coverage required
under this lease; (T) costs otherwise included in Operating Expenses, to
the extent reimbursed to Landlord directly by Tenant or other tenants
(other than through provisions similar to this Article 5); (U) ground rent
or any other payments paid under superior leases (other than in the nature
of rent consisting of Taxes or Operating Expenses and other payments which,
independent of a superior lease, would constitute an Operating Expense
hereunder); (V) depreciation, amortization and other non-cash expenses
except as provided for herein; (W) costs of acquiring, leasing, insuring,
restoring, removing or replacing works of art; and (X) costs of installing,
operating, or maintaining any special facility, such as an observatory,
luncheon club, parking lot, or athletic or recreational club in the
Building. No item of expense shall be counted more than once as an
inclusion in or an exclusion from, Operating Expenses or if an item or
expense is separately charged to Tenant it shall not be duplicated in
Operating Expenses. In determining the amount of Operating Expenses for the
Base Operational Year or any subsequent Operational Year, if less than
ninety-five percent (95%) of the Building's rentable area shall have been
occupied by tenant(s) at any time during the Base Operational Year or such
subsequent Operational Year, as the case may be, Operating Expenses shall
be determined for the Base Operational Year or such subsequent Operational
Year to be an amount equal to the Operating Expenses which would normally
be expected to have been incurred had such occupancy been ninety-five
percent (95%) throughout the Base Operational Year or such subsequent
Operational Year. If Landlord is not furnishing any particular work or
service (the cost of which, if performed by Landlord, would constitute an
Operating Expense) to a tenant or other occupant who has undertaken to
perform such work or service in lieu of the performance thereof by
Landlord, Operating Expenses shall be determined to be incurred during such
period by Landlord as if it had at its own expense furnished such work or
services to such tenant or other occupant.

              (b) "OPERATIONAL YEAR" shall mean each calendar year or part
thereof occurring during the term of this lease.

              (c) "BASE OPERATIONAL YEAR" shall mean calendar year 1999.

              (d) "BASE OPERATING EXPENSES" shall mean Operating Expenses
for the Base Operational Year.

              (e) "TENANT'S OPERATIONAL PROPORTIONATE SHARE" shall mean
7.508%.

              (f) "OPERATING PAYMENT" shall mean Tenant's Operational
Proportionate Share multiplied by the amount, if any, by which the
Operating Expenses for the subject Operational Year exceeds the Base
Operating Expenses, but in no event shall the Operating Payment be less
than zero.

              (g) "TENANT'S PROJECTED OPERATING PAYMENT" shall mean, for
the 2000 Operational Year, 7% of the Base Operating Expenses, multiplied by
Tenant's Operational Proportionate Share, and for the immediately following
Operational Year and each and every Operational Year thereafter, 107% of
the Operating Payment for the Operational Year immediately preceding the
subject Operational Year, which Tenant's Projected Operating Payment for
the subject Operational Year, as more particularly provided in subsection
G(b) below.

       G. (a) Commencing with the 2000 Operational Year, and continuing
thereafter throughout the balance of the term of this lease, Tenant shall
pay, as additional rent, the Operating Payment for such Operational Year
and for each and every Operational Year thereafter that occurs (in whole or
in part) during the term of this lease, as more particularly provided in
Section H below.

              (b) On account of Tenant's obligation to pay the Operating
Payment, commencing on the later of the Commencement Date and the first day
of the 2000 Operational Year (such later date being hereinafter referred to
as the "FIRST PROJECTED OPERATING PAYMENT DATE"), and continuing thereafter
throughout the balance of the term of this lease, Tenant shall pay, in
equal monthly installments, the Tenant's Projected Operating Payment for
the 2000 Operational Year and for each and every Operational Year
thereafter that occurs (in whole or in part) during the term of this lease.
Tenant's Projected Operating Payment(s) shall be set forth in a statement
furnished to Tenant, which statement shall set forth Landlord's calculation
of the Tenant's Projected Operating Payment for the subject Operational
Year. As of the first (1st) day of each and every Operational Year
occurring during the term of this lease, the Tenant's Projected Operating
Payment shall be automatically adjusted in accordance with Section F(g)
above.

              (c) If the Commencement Date is after the first day of the
2000 Operational Year, then, together with the first payment of the
Tenant's Projected Operating Payment, Tenant shall pay in a lump sum,
retroactive to the first day of the 2000 Operational Year, the amount of
Tenant's Projected Operating Payment that would have been payable had the
Commencement Date occurred on the first day of the 2000 Operational Year.

              (d) If a statement setting forth the Tenant's Projected
Operating Payment is not furnished to Tenant by the First Projected Payment
Date, then Tenant shall not be obligated to pay the first payment of
Tenant's Projected Operating Payment until it has been furnished with such
statement, and together with such first payment, Tenant shall make all
retroactive payments of the Tenant's Projected Operating Payment that would
have been payable had Tenant been furnished with such statement by the
First Projected Operating Payment Date, together with the lump sum
retroactive payment referred to in subsection (c) above, all as set forth
in such statement.

       H. After Landlord has calculated the Operating Expenses for the
subject Operational Year, Tenant shall be furnished, within sixty (60) days
after the end of such Operational Year, with a statement, which statement
shall set forth the actual Operating Payment for the subject Operational
Year, within sixty (60) days after the end of such Operational Year; the
amount of Tenant's Projected Operating Payments paid by Tenant for the
subject Operational Year; the amount of any overpayment or underpayment of
the Operating Payment (i.e., the difference between the Operating Payment
and the amount of Tenant's Projected Operating Payment paid by Tenant); and
Landlord's calculation of the Tenant's Projected Operating Payment for the
next Operational Year, which Tenant's Projected Operating Payment shall be
paid in accordance with subsection G(b) above. If such statement indicates
an underpayment of the Operating Payment, Tenant shall pay to Landlord the
amount of the underpayment within ten (10) days after it is furnished with
such statement. If such statement indicates an overpayment of the Operating
Payment, Landlord, at Tenant's option, shall either refund promptly the
overpayment to Tenant, or apply the overpayment to the next installment of
the Tenant's Projected Operating Payment or fixed rent due under this
lease.

              (b) Each statement furnished under this Section H is
hereinafter called an "OPERATING STATEMENT." Every Operating Statement
furnished to Tenant shall be conclusive and binding upon Tenant, unless
Tenant shall notify Landlord within ninety (90) days after its receipt of
such statement that it desires an audit of Landlord's books relevant to the
Operating Statement subject to Tenant's dispute. If Tenant so notifies
Landlord of its desire to audit, Landlord agrees, at no cost or expense to
Landlord, to grant Tenant reasonable access to those books and records of
Landlord relevant to Landlord's Operating Expenses charged to Tenant being
disputed for the purpose of verifying Operating Expenses incurred by
Landlord in the Operational Year in question and the comparison with the
prior Operating Year (provided Tenant shall have no right to dispute the
Operating Expenses charged to Tenant for such prior Operating Year) and to
have and make copies of any and all bills and vouchers relating to such
dispute. Tenant agrees that Tenant will not employ, in connection with any
review or dispute under this lease, any person who is to be compensated, in
whole or in part, on a contingency fee basis and that any review or audit
on behalf of Tenant shall be conducted only by Tenant's regular certified
public accountant or by a "Big 5" accounting firm (other than such firm or
firms then representing Landlord). In connection with any such review,
audit or dispute, Tenant and its representatives shall execute and deliver
to Landlord a confidentiality agreement, in form and substance reasonably
satisfactory to Landlord and Tenant, whereby such parties agree not to
disclose to any third party (other than as required by law or to such
party's attorneys and other consultants in connection with such dispute who
shall agree to not disclose such information to any third party) any of the
information obtained in connection with such review or audit, or the
substance of any admissions or stipulations by any party in connection
therewith, or of any resulting reconciliation, compromise or settlement.
Pending the resolution of such dispute by agreement or arbitration, Tenant
shall pay any additional rent due in accordance with the Operating
Statement in question, but such payment shall be without prejudice to
Tenant's position. Within thirty (30) days after Landlord has made its
books available to Tenant, Tenant shall notify Landlord pursuant to written
notice if Tenant disputes the correctness of the calculations made therein,
specifying the particular respects in which such computations are claimed
to be incorrect. Within thirty (30) days after such notice to Landlord,
Tenant may submit its dispute to arbitration if such dispute shall not
theretofore be settled by agreement between Landlord and Tenant. If the
dispute shall be resolved in Tenant's favor, Landlord shall, within ten
(10) days after Tenant's demand, pay Tenant the amount of Tenant's
overpayment of rents, if any, resulting from compliance with the disputed
Operating Statement, and if such overpayment exceeded the amount finally
determined to be payable by more than ten percent (10%) of the amount
finally determined to be payable by Tenant for such Operational Year,
Landlord shall pay to tenant the reasonable cost of the audit plus interest
on the amount overpaid, at the Applicable Rate, from the date Landlord
receives Tenant's dispute notice to the date of reimbursement.

40.    USE:

       A. (a) Tenant shall use and occupy the demised premises for

suitable for such use.

       B. If any governmental license or permit, other than the Building's
existing certificate of occupancy or a form ACP-5, which Landlord shall
obtain in connection with the initial preparation of the demised premises
for Tenant's occupancy, shall be required for the proper and lawful conduct
of Tenant's business in the demised premises, or any part thereof, Tenant,
at its expense, shall duly procure and thereafter maintain such license or
permit and submit the same for inspection by Landlord. Tenant shall at all
times comply with the terms and conditions of each such license or permit.

       C. Tenant shall not at any time use or occupy, or suffer or permit
anyone to use or occupy, the demised premises, or do or permit anything to
be done in the demised premises, (i) in violation of any superior mortgage
the provisions of which Tenant has received notice, or (ii) in violation of
the Certificate of Occupancy for the demised premises or for the Building.

41.    TENANT'S WORK:

       A. (a) Tenant acknowledges that it has made a full and complete
inspection of the demised premises, and Tenant agrees to accept same on the
Commencement Date in their present "as-is" condition, except for the
performance of Landlord's Work described on EXHIBIT B. Prior to the
Commencement Date, Landlord, at no cost to Tenant, shall remove all
asbestos and asbestos containing materials from the demised premises to the
extent required to be removed under applicable law. Landlord agrees to
deliver to Tenant a so-called original form ACP-5 in respect of the demised
premises prior to Tenant obtaining its building permits. Except as set
forth herein, Tenant acknowledges that neither Landlord, nor Landlord's
agent, has made any representations or promises in regard to the demised
premises. The opening for business by Tenant in the demised premises shall
be conclusive evidence as against Tenant that the demised premises were in
good and satisfactory condition at the time such possession was taken.
Tenant's failure, refusal or inability to open for business in the demised
premises shall not be deemed evidence that the demised premises were not in
good or satisfactory condition.

              (b) Any installations, materials and work which may be
undertaken by or for the account of Tenant to equip, decorate and furnish
the demised premises for Tenant's for Tenant's initial occupancy thereof
(hereinafter referred to as "TENANT'S WORK") shall be performed by Tenant,
at Tenant's sole cost and expense in accordance with the terms, covenants
and conditions set forth in this lease, including, without limitation,
Article 42 hereof.

              (c) In connection with Tenant's Work, Tenant shall be
permitted (subject to the applicable provisions of this Lease) to use the
area above any hung ceiling of the floor below the demised premises and
similar areas outside of the demised premises for the installation of
plumbing or poke through electrical devices and similar items as Tenant may
reasonably require.

              (d) Landlord acknowledges that the 14th and 15th floors are
currently non re-entry floors for all fire stairs. Landlord agrees not to
reprogram the 14th or 15th floor unless required to do so by changes in
governmental requirements.

              (e) Landlord's rules and regulations for tenant's work to the
contrary notwithstanding, Landlord acknowledges that, in connection with
Tenant's Work, it shall require one (1) hour rated demising and corridor
walls with 3/4 hour doors, for sprinklered multi-tenant floors in
compliance with applicable codes, and that two (2) hour and one and one
half (1 1/2) hour rated doors shall not be required.

       B. (a) Landlord agrees to pay to Tenant, in accordance with, and
subject to, the provisions of this Section B, an amount not to exceed the
lesser of (i) the cost for Tenant to perform all items of Tenant's Work in
the demised premises (including architectural, engineering, expediter and
inspection fees, and fees for all municipal and other permits, licenses and
approvals (hereinafter referred to as "SOFT-COSTS"), all to the extent that
same are directly related to the Tenant's Work (as opposed to being related
to furniture, furnishings or other non-"hard cost" items) and do not
exceed, in the aggregate, ten (10%) percent of the Construction Payment (as
hereinafter defined)), other than the cost of items which constitute
Tenant's personal property and which are removable by Tenant from the
demised premises on the Expiration Date, and (ii) $2,424,555.00, (such
lesser amount being hereinafter referred to as the "CONSTRUCTION PAYMENT"),
provided that at the time Landlord is otherwise obligated to make such
payment of the Construction Payment or any portion thereof, Tenant is not
in breach or default of any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this
lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply with. Pursuant to
EXHIBIT B attached hereto, Landlord has agreed to perform certain
Electrical Upgrading Work, the cost of which shall be subject to the
approval of Tenant prior to the commencement of such work, which approval
shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed by Tenant, and which approval
shall be deemed given if Tenant does not respond to Landlord's request
therefor within five (5) days after Landlord gives such request to Tenant.
In the event Landlord expends more than $70,000.00 to perform such
Electrical Upgrading Work (such additional amount being referred to as the
"EXCESS AMOUNT"), the Excess Amount shall be deducted from the Construction
Payment otherwise payable to Tenant hereunder.

              (b) Subject to the provisions of this Section, Landlord
hereby agrees to make periodic payments of portions of the Construction
Payment to Tenant as Tenant's Work progresses, in accordance with the terms
and conditions hereinafter set forth (the "CONSTRUCTION PAYMENT
CONDITIONS"):

                     (i)    Tenant shall submit to Landlord from time to time,
but not more often than once per month, requisitions (herein referred to as
"TENANT'S REQUEST") for such periodic payment with respect to the
portion(s) of Tenant's Work performed subsequent to the immediately
preceding Tenant's Request, the form of which Tenant's Request shall be
designated by Landlord, together with the following:

                            (x)    copies of invoices from the contractors and
subcontractors who performed the portions of Tenant's Work referred to in
such Tenant's Request, and from the materialmen and suppliers who supplied
the materials and supplies referred to in such Tenant's Request;

                            (y)    a certificate from Tenant's architect and
general contractor or construction manager that such portion of the
Tenant's Work has been substantially completed in accordance with the plans
and specifications theretofore approved by Landlord; and an updated title
report and violations search, prepared by a reputable title company
licensed to do business in New York, or such other evidence reasonably
acceptable to Landlord, indicating that there are no violations or liens
pending as a result of such portion of the Tenant's Work; and

                            (z)    unconditional lien waivers from  each
contractor, subcontractor, materialman and supplier to the extent of the
amount previously paid to such parties as provided in previous Tenant's
Requests and conditional lien waivers (i.e., conditioned upon payment only)
from each contractor, subcontractor, materialman and supplier to the extent
of the amount to be paid to such parties as provided in the current
Tenant's Request;

                     (ii) The unfunded portion of the Construction Payment
is sufficient to complete the then unpaid Tenant's Work, and evidence
thereof in the form of Tenant's bank statements reflecting such
sufficiency, which bank statements shall certified as to their accuracy by
a principal officer of Tenant, or such other evidence, all of which is
reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, has been submitted to Landlord; and

                     (iii) Such portion of the Tenant's Work has been
performed in substantially compliance with the applicable provisions of this
lease.

              (c) Promptly following each Tenant's Request together with
the aforesaid accompanying documentation, Landlord shall have the right to
enter the demised premises for the purpose of verifying that such portion
of Tenant's Work covered by Tenant's Request has been performed
substantially in accordance with the plans and specifications theretofore
approved by Landlord, either by Landlord's architect or by an independent
architect retained by Landlord at Tenant's sole cost and expense. If said
architect shall provide such verification, then, provided the Construction
Payment Conditions have been, and remain, satisfied, within twenty (20)
days after Landlord's receipt of Tenant's Request together with the
accompanying documentation set forth above, Landlord shall pay to Tenant
the "Percentage Payment" (as such term is hereinafter defined) with respect
to the amounts shown on such Tenant's Request for the portions of Tenant's
Work reflected thereon. For purposes hereof, the "PERCENTAGE PAYMENT" shall
mean ninety (90%) percent of the amounts shown on such Tenant's Request,
for portions of Tenant's Work reflected thereon. The balance of the
Construction Payment, if any, after the completion of Tenant's Work, shall
be paid to Tenant in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in
paragraph (d) below.

              (d) Subject to the provisions of this Section, Landlord
hereby agrees to pay the unfunded portion of the Construction Payment, in
accordance with the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth (the "FINAL
CONSTRUCTION PAYMENT CONDITIONS"):

                     (i)    After the completion of the Tenant's Work, Tenant
shall submit to Landlord a requisition (herein referred to as the "FINAL
REQUEST") for such unfunded portion of the Construction Payment, the form
of which Final Request shall be designated by Landlord, together with the
following:

                            (w)    copies of paid receipted invoices from the
contractors and subcontractors who performed the Tenant's Work, and from
the materialmen and suppliers who supplied the materials and supplies
referred to in the Final Request (other than those invoices previously
submitted to Landlord pursuant to subsection (b) above);

                            (x)    a certificate  from  Tenant's  architect and
general contractor or construction manager that (1) all Tenant's Work has
been completed in accordance with the plans and specifications theretofore
approved by Landlord; and (2) there are no violations or liens pending as a
result of any of the Tenant's Work;



                            (y)    lien  waivers from each contractor,
subcontractor, materialman and supplier to the extent of the amount paid to
such parties (other than those invoices previously submitted to Landlord
pursuant to subsection (b) above); and

                            (z)    in respect of all Tenant's Work, as-built
drawings sign-offs and inspection reports, and, if Landlord requests,
copies of balancing reports, operating manuals, maintenance logs, and
warranties and guaranties, shall be made available to Landlord for its
review at reasonable times upon reasonable notice; and

                     (ii) All Tenant's Work has been performed in material
compliance with the applicable provisions of this lease.

              (e) Promptly following the Final Request together with the
aforesaid accompanying documentation, Landlord shall have the right to
enter the demised premises for the purpose of verifying that all of the
Tenant's Work has been completed and performed substantially in accordance
with the plans and specifications theretofore approved by Landlord, either
by Landlord's architect or by an independent architect retained by Landlord
at Tenant's sole cost and expense. If said architect shall provide such
verification, then, provided the Final Construction Payment Conditions have
been, and remain, satisfied, within thirty (30) days after Landlord's
receipt of the Final Request together with the accompanying documentation,
Landlord shall pay to Tenant the unfunded portion of the Construction
Payment (such unfunded portion being hereinafter referred to as the "FINAL
PAYMENT").

              (f) In no event shall the sum of the Percentage Payments and
the Final Payment exceed the lesser of (i) $2,494,555.00 and (ii) the cost
for Tenant to perform all items of Tenant's Work in the demised premises.

42.    TENANT'S CHANGES:

       A. Tenant shall make no changes in or to the demised premises of any
nature without Landlord's prior written consent in each instance, except as
otherwise expressly permitted in this Article.

       B. With Landlord's prior written consent in each instance, which
consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, Tenant may, from
time to time during the term of this lease, at its sole expense, make such
alterations, additions, installations, substitutions, improvements and
decorations (hereinafter collectively called "NONSTRUCTURAL CHANGES") in
and to the interior of the demised premises that are not structural in
nature, that do not result in, or require, an amendment to, or modification
of, the certificate of occupancy for the Building, and that do not
otherwise affect the structural parts or integrity of the Building and do
not affect the proper functioning of the Building's utilities, systems or
services, as Tenant may reasonably consider necessary for the conduct of
its business therein, on the following conditions:

              (a)    the outside appearance or strength of the Building shall
not be affected;

              (b) no part of the Building outside of the demised premises
shall be physically affected; and

              (c) the proper functioning of any of the mechanical,
electrical, sanitary and other service systems of the Building shall not be
adversely affected, and the usage of such systems by Tenant shall not be
increased.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, after the completion of Tenant's Work,
Landlord's consent shall not be required for Nonstructural Changes to the
demised premises that do not require any permits requiring the signature or
certification of Landlord, the aggregate cost of which, when combined with
the costs of all other Changes (as hereinafter defined) to the demised
premises not then completed and fully paid for, is less than $100,000.00,
and (such Nonstructural Changes being herein referred to as "LIMITED
NONSTRUCTURAL CHANGES"). For the purposes of the preceding sentence, the
cost of furniture, furnishings and movable work stations shall not be
included in computing the cost of Changes in question.

       C. Tenant shall not make any alterations, additions, installations,
substitutions, improvements or decorations (hereinafter collectively
referred to as "STRUCTURAL CHANGES") (i) outside the demised premises; (ii)
in or to the exterior of the demised premises; (iii) in or to the interior
demised premises that are structural in nature or that otherwise affect the
structural integrity or parts of the Building or that affect the proper
functioning of any of the Building's utilities, systems or services, or
(iv) which result in, or require, an amendment to, or modification of, the
certificate of occupancy for the Building, without Landlord's prior written
approval in each instance, which approval may be withheld by Landlord in
its absolute and sole discretion.

       D. Nonstructural Changes and/or Structural Changes (collectively,
"CHANGES") shall only be performed in accordance with and subject to, this
Article and the other applicable provisions of this lease.

       E. (a) Landlord acknowledges that Tenant intends to install
Supplemental Units and the Installations (as such terms are hereinafter
defined) and to perform the Electrical Upgrading Work (collectively,
"ADDITIONAL TENANT'S WORK") as part of the Tenant's Work.

              (b) Before commencing any Change (except for Limited
Nonstructural Changes), Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall prepare
and submit to Landlord for Landlord's approval, reasonably detailed plans
and specifications therefor, which approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed for any Additional Tenant's Work or Nonstructural
Changes described therein. The cost and expense reasonably incurred and/or
paid by Landlord in connection with the review of said plans and
specifications (and all revisions thereto), and the inspection of the work
in respect thereof, by Landlord and Landlord's architects, engineers and
other consultants and professionals shall be reimbursed by Tenant to
Landlord (as additional rent) within ten (10) days after Landlord's demand
therefor, Tenant hereby agreeing that neither Landlord's approval of plans
or specifications, nor its inspection of such work, nor its right to
inspect such work, shall impose upon Landlord any obligation or liability
whatsoever with respect thereto, including, without limitation, any
obligation or liability that might arise as a result of such work not being
performed in accordance with applicable laws and requirements or with the
plans and specifications approved by Landlord or otherwise. Landlord may,
as a condition of its approval, require Tenant to make revisions in and to
the plans and specifications and to post a bond or other security
reasonably satisfactory to Landlord to insure the completion and payment of
the Change in question. Tenant shall not use, employ or retain any
contractor or mechanic, or permit the use, employment or retention of any
subcontractor, that has not been first approved by Landlord, which approval
shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, for all Changes (including all Tenant's Work) involving
electrical equipment or wiring, heating, ventilation and/or
air-conditioning systems or equipment, or plumbing equipment or systems,
Tenant may only use contractors and subcontractors approved by Landlord
which approval will not be unreasonably withheld. If within ten (10)
business days after Landlord receives Tenant's plans and specifications (or
any requested revisions thereto), Landlord fails to respond to Tenant's
request for Landlord's approval thereof (whether by granting or denying
such approval or by requesting revisions to such plans and specifications),
Tenant shall give to Landlord a second (2nd) notice (the "SECOND NOTICE")
notifying Landlord that if within five (5) business days after Landlord's
receipt of the Second Notice Landlord fails to respond to Tenant's request
for such approval, such failure shall be deemed the granting of such
approval. If Landlord fails to respond to the Second Notice within such
five (5) business day period (whether by granting or denying such approval
or by requesting revisions to such plans and specifications), such approval
shall be deemed given.

              (c) Before commencing any Limited Nonstructural Change,
Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall prepare and submit to Landlord
reasonably detailed plans and specifications therefor, provided however
Landlord shall have no right to approve such plans and specifications.

       F. Before commencing any Change, Tenant shall, at its expense,
obtain all permits, notices, approvals and certificates (collectively,
"Permits") required by all governmental and quasi-governmental authorities
for the commencement and prosecution of such Changes, and, upon completion,
for the final approval of such Changes, and shall cause Tenant's Changes to
be performed in compliance therewith, as well as with all applicable laws
and requirements of public authorities and all applicable requirements of
insurance bodies, in a good and workmanlike manner, using new materials and
equipment of a quality and class at least equal to the original
installations in the Building. Duplicates of all such permits, notices,
approvals and certificates shall be delivered to Landlord before commencing
such Changes, and upon the completion thereof, as the case may be. Landlord
agrees to reasonably cooperate with Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and
expense, in connection with Tenant's Permit applications, and, with respect
to such plans and specifications that Landlord has approved or which have
been deemed approved pursuant to Section 42E, to promptly execute any
documents requiring Landlord's signature in connection with Tenant
obtaining the Permits. Changes shall be performed in such a manner as not
to unreasonably interfere with or delay, and (unless Tenant shall indemnify
Landlord therefor to the Landlord's reasonable satisfaction) as not to
impose any additional expense upon Landlord in, the maintenance or
operation of the Building. Throughout the performance of all Changes,
Tenant shall, at its expense, carry, or cause to be carried, worker's
compensation insurance in statutory limits and general liability insurance
and personal and property damage insurance for any occurrence in or about
the Building as set forth in Article 49 of this lease. All such insurance
policies shall name Landlord and its agents, as parties insured, and be in
such limits as required by Article 49 hereof. Tenant shall furnish Landlord
with certificate(s) of insurance evidencing that such insurance is in
effect before the commencement of any Changes and, on request, at
reasonable intervals thereafter during the continuance of the Changes.

       G. Tenant shall, at its expense and with diligence and dispatch,
procure the cancellation or discharge of all notices of violation arising
from, or otherwise connected with, the Changes that shall be issued by the
Department of Buildings or any other public or quasi-public authority
having or asserting jurisdiction (unless such was caused solely by acts or
omissions of Landlord or its agents). Tenant shall defend, indemnify and
save Landlord harmless from and against all mechanic's and other liens
filed in connection with the Changes or for any other work claimed to have
been done for, or materials furnished to, Tenant, whether or not done or
furnished pursuant to this Paragraph, including, without limitation, the
liens of any security interest in, conditional sales of, or chattel
mortgages upon, any materials, fixtures or articles so installed in and
constituting part of the demised premises, and against all costs, expenses
and liabilities incurred or paid in connection with any such lien, security
interest, conditional sale, or chattel mortgage or any action or proceeding
brought thereon. Tenant, at its expense, shall satisfy or discharge all
such liens, and remove same from the record, within thirty (30) days after
Landlord makes written demand therefor. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Landlord acknowledges that Tenant may obtain purchase money financing for
Tenant's personal property located at the demised premises, limited to
movable trade fixtures (not in any way attached or affixed to the demised
premises), equipment, furnishings and moveable office furniture, and agrees
that such purchase money lender shall be permitted to place a lien on such
personal property; provided, however, in no event shall such lien extend to
leasehold improvements or fixtures that are installed in and constitute
part of the demised premises or to Landlord's interest in the Building.

       H. No Change shall be done in a manner that would: (i) create any
work stoppage, picketing, labor disruption, or dispute; (ii) violate
Landlord's union contracts affecting the land and/or Building; (iii)
unreasonably interfere with the business of Landlord or any tenant or
occupant of the Building. In the event of the occurrence of any condition
described above arising from Tenant's exercise of any of its rights
pursuant to the provisions of this Article, Tenant shall, immediately upon
notice from Landlord, cease the manner of exercise of such right giving
rise to such condition. In the event that Tenant fails to cease such manner
of exercise of its rights as aforesaid, Landlord, in addition to any rights
available to it under this lease, at law or equity, and shall have the
right to injunction without notice. Tenant shall make all arrangements for,
and pay all expenses incurred in connection with, use of the freight
elevators servicing the demised premises and loading docks servicing the
Building. Tenant acknowledges that (x) Tenant's use of such freight
elevator and loading docks are non-exclusive and subject to scheduling by
Landlord, (y) if Tenant's use of such loading docks or the use of such
freight elevator for transporting materials, supplies, equipment,
machinery, furniture or furnishings will, in Landlord's reasonable opinion,
disrupt the operation of the Building (including the normal use of the
freight elevators) or cannot be scheduled during the Freight Elevator Hours
(as defined in Section 46A below), then Tenant will only be permitted to
use such freight elevator and loading docks during certain times other than
during the Freight Elevator Hours on business days, in which event Tenant
shall be obligated to pay for such overtime usage at Landlord's then
established rates, and (z) that there may be times when minimum usage of
the freight elevator is required, such as on weekend days. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, there shall be no charge for the use of the freight
elevators servicing the demised premises (a) in connection with and prior
to the substantial completion of Tenant's Work, such period not to exceed
one (1) year, and for Tenant's initial move (not to exceed three (3) days)
into the demised premises, (1) from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. on business
days, and during the Freight Elevator Hours on business days to transport
construction materials in connection with Tenant's Work and (2) "after
hours" for Tenant's move in and (b) for all other purposes during regular
hours.

       I. All fixtures and all paneling, partitions, railings and like
installations (COLLECTIVELY, "INSTALLMENTS"), installed in the demised
premises at any time, either by Tenant or by Landlord on Tenant's behalf,
shall, upon installation, become the property of Landlord at the expiration
or earlier termination of this lease. Nothing in this paragraph shall be
construed to give Landlord title to or to prevent Tenant's removal of
Installations, trade fixtures, moveable office furniture and equipment, but
upon removal of any of such from the demised premises or upon removal of
other installations as may be required by Landlord, Tenant shall
immediately and at its expense, repair and restore the demised premises to
the condition existing prior to installation, and repair any damage to the
demised premises or the Building due to such removal. All property
permitted or required to be removed by Tenant at the end of the term of
this lease that remains in the demised premises shall be deemed abandoned
and may be retained as Landlord's property or removed from the demised
premises by Landlord, at Landlord's expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
at the expiration or the earlier termination of this lease, Tenant shall
surrender the demised premises in good and tenantable condition so that the
demised premises may be used for executive and general office use by
another tenant upon such expiration or earlier termination. If Tenant
constructs a new staircase between the 14th and 15th floors, Tenant shall,
upon Landlord's request, remove such new staircase prior to the expiration
or sooner termination of the lease, at Tenant's expense, and shall repair
and restore the demised premises to the condition existing prior to such
installation. At no time shall Tenant have the obligation to remove the
existing internal staircase between the 14th and 15th floors of the
Building.

43.    HAZARDOUS MATERIALS; ADA; CLASS E SYSTEM:

       A. (a) Tenant shall not cause or permit "Hazardous Materials" (as
defined below) to be used, transported, stored, released, handled, produced
or installed in, on or from the demised premises or the Building, except
that Tenant may use and store such de minimis Hazardous Materials as are
customarily used and stored by office tenants, provided such usage and
storage is permitted by, and is in compliance with, all applicable laws.
The term "HAZARDOUS MATERIALS" shall, for the purposes hereof, mean any
flammable, explosive or radioactive materials, hazardous wastes, hazardous
and toxic substances or related materials, asbestos or any material
containing asbestos, or any other substance or material, as now or
hereafter defined as a hazardous material or a hazardous substance by any
federal, state or local law, ordinance, rule or regulation, now or at any
time hereafter in effect, including, without limitation, the Comprehensive
Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended,
the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, as amended, the Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act, as amended, and in the regulations adopted
and publications promulgated pursuant to each of the foregoing
("ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS"). In the event of a breach of the provisions of this
Article, Landlord shall, in addition to all of its rights and remedies
under this lease and pursuant to law, require Tenant to remove any or all
of such Hazardous Materials from the demised premises or the Building in
the manner prescribed for such removal by all requirements of law. Except
as otherwise provided in Section 41A, Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has
made no representation, warranty, covenant or agreement with respect to the
existence, removal, encapsulation or other treatment or remediation of
Hazardous Materials, and that Landlord shall not in any way be liable for
the existence of any Hazardous Materials or be obligated to remove,
encapsulate or otherwise treat or remediate same. The provisions of this
Article shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of this lease.

       (b) Except for Hazardous Materials used, transported, stored,
released, handled, produced or installed by Tenant or any person or entity
claiming by, through or under Tenant (including, its agents, sublessees,
Licensees, affiliates or employees) to the extent that any Hazardous
Materials are present in the demised premises during the term of this
lease, removal, encapsulation or other remediation of such Hazardous
Materials is required by Environmental Laws, then Landlord, as its sole
obligation and liability with respect thereto, and at its sole cost and
expense, shall take all measures necessary to comply with such
Environmental Laws with respect to such Hazardous Materials. Tenant agrees
to use its best efforts to minimize any contact or interference with any
such Hazardous Materials.

       B. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this lease,
Tenant agrees that it shall be solely responsible, at its expense, except
as expressly set forth on EXHIBIT B, to cause the entire demised premises
to be, and to remain throughout the term hereof, in compliance with the
provisions of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and any municipal
laws, ordinances and rules of like import, and any regulations adapted and
amendments promulgated pursuant to any of the foregoing (hereinafter
referred to collectively as the "ADA"), and Landlord shall have no
obligation whatsoever in connection therewith. Within ten (10) days after
receipt, Tenant shall advise Landlord in writing, and provide Landlord with
copies of, any notices alleging violations of the ADA relating to any
portion of the demised premises; any claims made or threatened in writing
regarding non-compliance with the ADA and relating to any portion of the
demised premises; or any governmental or regulatory actions or
investigations instituted or threatened regarding non-compliance with the
ADA and relating to any portion of the demised premises.

       C. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this lease,
and except as expressly set forth in EXHIBIT B, Tenant agrees, at its sole
cost and expense, to (a) install the Class E fire safety system within the
demised premises (the "CLASS E SYSTEM"), (b) connect same to the Building's
Class E fire safety system, and (c) thereafter maintain the Class E System
within the demised premises in compliance with all laws or requirements of
public authorities. Landlord shall have no obligation whatsoever in
connection with any Tenant caused Class E compliance or otherwise in
connection with the Class E System within the demised premises. Landlord's
Class E system contractor for the Building shall provide the necessary
service to repair and maintain Tenant's Class E system in the demised
premises and Tenant shall pay to Landlord, within thirty (30) days after
Landlord's written demand as additional rent, the reasonable monthly cost
of providing such service to the demised premises. Landlord shall maintain
the Building's Class E system outside of and up to the demised premises in
compliance with all laws and requirements of public authorities.

44.    ELECTRICITY:

       A. Subject to the terms of Section F of this Article, Landlord shall
furnish electrical service to the demised premises for lighting the same
and for the operation of normal office equipment (such as such as personal
computers and printers, photocopying machines and telephone facsimile
machines) therein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, Tenant agrees
that Landlord shall not in any wise be liable or responsible to Tenant for
any loss, damage, or expense that Tenant may sustain or incur, and Landlord
shall not otherwise be liable or responsible, if either the quantity or
character of electrical service is changed, is no longer available, or is
unsuitable for Tenant's requirements or the utility company providing
electrical service to the Building is unable to provide sufficient
electrical power to the Building, unless caused by Landlord's gross
negligence or willful misconduct.

       B. Tenant covenants and agrees that, at all times, its use of
electric current shall never exceed the capacity of the feeders to the
Building or the risers or wiring installation thereof and Landlord agrees
that Tenant's use of up to twelve (12) watts per usable square feet
(connected load) of electricity in the demised premises shall not cause
such capacity to be exceeded and acknowledges that Tenant intends to use up
to such electrical capacity in the demised premises. Tenant shall, at its
expense, and as part of Tenant's Work be responsible for providing risers
adequate to bring such capacity to the demised premises, and subject to
Tenant's compliance with Article 41 with regard to Tenant's Work, Landlord
agrees to reasonably cooperate with Tenant in connection therewith,
including providing Tenant access to the Building's electric service.
Tenant shall comply with the rules and regulations of the Landlord in
connection with such work. In connection therewith, Tenant expressly agrees
that all installations, alterations and additions of and to the electrical
fixtures, appliances or equipment within the demised premises shall be
subject to Landlord's prior written approval in each instance, and, if such
approval shall be given, rigid conduit only shall be permitted. If, in
connection with any request for such approval, Landlord shall, in its
reasonable judgment, determine that the risers of the Building servicing
the demised premises shall be insufficient to supply Tenant's electrical
requirements with respect thereto, Tenant shall, at the sole cost and
expense of Tenant, install any additional feeder(s) that Landlord shall
deem necessary with respect thereto, provided, however, that, if Landlord
shall determine, in its sole judgment, that the same will cause permanent
damage or injury to the Building or to the demised premises, cause or
create a dangerous or hazardous condition, entail excessive or unreasonable
alterations, repairs, or expense, or interfere with, or disturb, the other
tenants or occupants of the Building, then Landlord shall not be obligated
to permit Tenant to make such installation, and Tenant shall not make the
installation, alteration, or addition with respect to which Tenant
requested Landlord's consent. In addition to the installation of such riser
or risers, Landlord will also, at the sole cost and expense of Tenant,
install all other equipment necessary and proper in connection therewith,
subject to the aforesaid terms and conditions. All of the aforesaid costs
and expenses are chargeable and collectible as additional rent, and shall
be paid by Tenant to Landlord within thirty (30) days after rendition of
any bill or statement to Tenant therefor. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Landlord hereby approves the Electrical Upgrading Work.

       C. Landlord shall, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, install one or
more meters to measure the amount of Usage (as hereinafter defined). Where
more than one meter measures the amount of Usage, Usage through each meter
shall be computed separately and billed in accordance with the provisions
of this Article.

       D. For purposes of this Article:

                     (i)    "USAGE" shall mean actual usage of  electricity  as
measured by the aforesaid metering system for each calendar month or such
other period as Landlord shall determine during the term of this lease and
shall include the quantity and peak demand (kilowatt hours and kilowatts);

                     (ii) "LANDLORD'S RATE" shall mean the service
classification (including all surcharges, demand charges and rates, energy
charges and rates, fuel adjustment charges, time of day charges and other
charges, adjustments and sums payable in respect thereof) pursuant to which
Landlord then purchases electric current for the Building from the utility
company supplying electric current to the Building, in effect from time to
time during the term of this lease, which shall be utilized as the rate
structure for the determination of "Tenant's Cost" (as hereinafter
defined);

                     (iii) "TENANT'S COST" shall mean an amount equal to
the sum of Usage multiplied by 107% of Landlord's Rate.

       E. Not more than once a month, Landlord shall furnish Tenant with an
invoice indicating the period during which the Usage was measured and the
amount of Tenant's Cost payable by Tenant to Landlord for such period.
Within twenty (20) days after receipt of each such invoice, Tenant shall
pay the amount of Tenant's Cost set forth thereon to Landlord as additional
rent. In addition, if any tax is imposed upon Landlord by any municipal,
state or federal agency or subdivision with respect to the purchase, sale
or resale of electrical energy supplied to Tenant hereunder, Tenant
covenants and agrees that, where permitted by law, Tenant's Proportionate
Share of such taxes shall be passed on to, included in the bill to and paid
by, Tenant to Landlord, as additional rent.

       F. Provided that it is physically possible for Tenant to receive
electric current in the demised premises directly from the public utility
company serving the area in which the Building is located, Landlord may
discontinue the aforesaid service upon thirty (30) days' notice to Tenant
without being liable to Tenant therefor and without in any way affecting
this lease or the liability of Tenant hereunder, and the same shall not be
deemed to be a lessening or diminution of services within the meaning of
any law, rule, or regulation now or hereafter enacted, promulgated, or
issued. In the event that Landlord gives such notice of discontinuance,
Landlord shall permit Tenant to receive such service directly from such
public utility company and shall permit Landlord's wires and conduits, to
the extent available, suitable and safely capable, to be used for such
purpose. Any additional wires, conduits, or other equipment necessary and
proper in connection therewith shall be installed by Landlord in accordance
with the terms of, and subject to the conditions contained in this Article.
In the event that Landlord exercises its rights under this Section F, then:
(i) Tenant shall contract for such electrical service directly with the
said public utility for all of Tenant's electric current requirements and
(ii) Landlord shall have no obligation to furnish electric current to
Tenant or the demised premises. All meters and all additional panel boards,
feeders, risers, wiring and other conductors and equipment which may be
required to obtain electricity, of substantially the same quantity, quality
and character as Landlord is obligated to furnish under Section A of this
Article, shall be installed by Landlord: (1) at Landlord's expense, if
Landlord shall have discontinued furnishing electricity to the demised
premises voluntarily, or (2) at Tenant's expense, if Landlord shall have
been compelled to discontinue furnishing electricity to the demised
premises by reason of any act or omission of Tenant, or (3) at the equal
expense of Landlord and Tenant if such discontinuance shall have been by
compulsion of law or of any rule or regulation and not by reason of any act
or omission of Tenant.

       G. Upon not less than ten (10) business days prior written notice to
Landlord, and not more than once annually, Tenant shall have the right to
review and examine invoices received by Landlord from the utility company
providing electric service to the Building pertaining to the prior twelve
(12) month period at Landlord's New York City offices during Landlord's
normal business hours. Every such invoice furnished to Tenant shall be
conclusive and binding upon Tenant, unless Tenant shall notify Landlord
within ninety (90) days after its examination of such invoices that it
disputes the correctness of the computations made therein, specifying the
particular respects in which such computations are claimed to be incorrect.
Pending the resolution of such dispute, Tenant shall pay any additional
rent due in accordance therewith, but such payment shall be without
prejudice to Tenant's position. If the dispute shall be resolved in
Tenant's favor, Landlord shall, within thirty (30) days after Tenant's
demand therefor, pay Tenant the amount of Tenant's overpayment of rents, if
any, resulting from compliance with the disputed invoice(s), plus interest
at the Applicable Rate if Tenant's overpayment was ten percent (10%) or
more of the payment actually required.

45.    HEAT AND AIR-CONDITIONING:   

       A. Use of the demised premises, or any part thereof, in a manner
exceeding the design conditions (including occupancy and connected
electrical load) specified for the Building's HVAC systems or rearrangement
of partitioning which interferes with normal operation of the heat,
ventilation and air-conditioning in the demised premises, may require
changes in the Building's HVAC systems. Such changes, so occasioned, shall
be made by Tenant, at its expense, subject to Landlord's prior written
approval of such changes, which approval may be withheld for any reason.
Tenant shall not make any change, alteration, addition or substitution to
the Building's HVAC systems without Landlord's prior written approval,
which may be withheld for any reason. Tenant shall keep or cause to be kept
closed all windows in the demised premises whenever the heating service,
air-conditioning service or ventilation is being provided. In addition,
Tenant agrees at all times to cooperate fully with Landlord and to abide by
all reasonable regulations and requirements which Landlord may prescribe
for the proper functioning and protection of the Building's HVAC systems.

       B. For the purposes of this lease:

              (a)    "HEATING SEASON" shall mean October 16 through May 14;

              (b) "COOLING SEASON" shall mean May 15 through October 15;

              (c) "BUSINESS DAYS" shall mean Mondays through Fridays,
except such days as are observed by the State or Federal government as
legal holidays and those days designated as holidays by the applicable
building service union employees contract;

              (d) "REGULAR HOURS" shall mean the hours between 8:00 A.M. to
6:00 P.M. on business days and until 1:00 p.m. on Saturday; and

              (e) "AFTER HOURS" shall mean, with respect to heating
service, any time other than regular hours during the Heating Season, and
with respect to air-conditioning service, any time other than regular hours
during the Cooling Season.

       C. In accordance with, and subject to, the provisions of this
Article, Landlord shall furnish heat to the demised premises (the "HEATING
SERVICE") and air-conditioning to the demised premises (the
"AIR-CONDITIONING SERVICE"), both through the perimeter units presently
located in the demised premises. The systems through which Landlord so
supplies such heating and air-conditioning to the demised premises, as well
as ventilation, are herein referred to as the "BUILDING HVAC SYSTEMS."

       D. At no additional cost to Tenant, but subject to energy
conservation requirements of governmental authorities, Landlord shall
furnish heating service during regular hours during the Heating Season and
air-conditioning service during regular hours during the Cooling Season.
Subject to all of the applicable provisions of this lease, including, but
not limited to, Article 27 above, and Section 46 below (a) during regular
hours during the Cooling Season, the Building's central air conditioning
system shall be capable of maintaining a maximum interior temperature of 76
degrees F when exterior conditions are 93 degrees F dry bulb and 74 degrees
F wet bulb, provided that Tenant has not exceeded an average occupancy of
one person per 100 usable square feet or the average electrical demand load
in excess of 4 watts per usable square foot, and (b) during regular hours
during the Heating Season, the Building's central heating system in the
demised premises shall be capable of maintaining a minimum interior
temperature of 72 degrees F with exterior conditions of 11 degrees F dry
bulb, and (c) the Building's ventilation system shall be capable of
providing fresh air in quantities as required by New York City Building
Code and shall be in operation for this purpose during regular hours. If
Tenant shall require after hours heating service during the Heating Season,
or after hours air-conditioning service during the Cooling Season, or
ventilation at any time other than during regular hours during either the
Heating Season or the Cooling Season, Landlord shall furnish such after
hours heating service, air-conditioning service, or ventilation, as the
case may be, but only upon at least one (1) business day's prior notice and
Tenant shall pay, as additional rent and within ten (10) days after
Landlord's demand therefor, Landlord's actual cost for providing such
services (including labor and depreciation). The current charges for such
services are set forth on EXHIBIT G attached. Notwithstanding anything
contained in this lease which may be deemed to the contrary, Landlord shall
have no obligation to furnish after hours air-conditioning service during
the Heating Season, and Landlord shall have no obligation to furnish after
hours heating service during the Cooling Season.

       E. Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and expense may, furnish and
install one (1) or more condenser water cooled air-handling units
(collectively, the "CONDENSER WATER SUPPLEMENTAL UNITS") in the demised
premises of no more than ten (10) tons, in the aggregate for the entire
demised premises, to provide supplemental air-conditioning to the demised
premises, and to install one (1) or more chilled water cooled air-handling
units (collectively, the "CHILLED WATER SUPPLEMENTAL UNITS") in the demised
premises of no more than eighty (80) tons, in the aggregate for the entire
demised premises, to provide supplemental air-conditioning to the demised
premises. The Condenser Water Supplemental Units and the Chilled Water
Supplemental Units shall be collectively referred to herein as the
"SUPPLEMENTAL UNITS". Tenant's obligations under this Section shall include
furnishing, designing, installing and distributing the ductwork related to
the Supplemental Units and installing meters (the "BTU METERS") measuring
the use of chilled water and condenser water by the Supplemental Units.
Neither the Supplemental Units, nor any of their related facilities,
equipment, machinery or ducts shall be installed outside the demised
premises. Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, at its
expense, to monitor and/or supervise the installation, maintenance and
repair of the Supplemental Units and all such facilities, equipment,
machinery and ducts, and Tenant shall, at its expense, follow all
reasonable instructions of Landlord relating to such installation,
maintenance and repair. The Supplemental Units and all facilities,
equipment, machinery and ducts installed in connection with the
Supplemental Units, shall be installed in accordance with, and subject to,
Article 42 and the other applicable provisions of this lease.

       F. The Supplemental Units and all facilities, equipment, machinery
and ducts installed in connection therewith shall be operated by Tenant at
Tenant's sole cost and expense. Tenant shall control the hours of operation
of the Supplemental Units, however, Tenant, immediately upon Landlord's
request, shall stop service of the Supplemental Units when necessary, by
reason of accident or emergency or when necessary to maintain, or make
repairs to, the Supplemental Units, the Building or any of the Building's
systems, including, without limitation, the Building's HVAC systems. Tenant
shall operate the Supplemental Units in compliance with all applicable
laws, orders and regulations, including, but not limited to, the New York
State Energy Conservation Code, as the same may be from time to time
amended. Tenant shall indemnify and save Landlord harmless from and against
all costs, expenses, fines, penalties, liabilities and damages which may be
imposed upon Landlord by reason of Tenant's (or its contractors,
subtenants, licensees, agents, servants, invitees or visitors) failure to
comply with the provisions of the preceding two sentences. The Supplemental
Units and other facilities, machinery and equipment shall be supplied with
electricity measured and paid for by Tenant as provided in Article 44
hereof.

       G. Tenant shall, at its expense, properly and continuously maintain,
repair and cause any and all replacements of the Supplemental Units and all
facilities, equipment, machinery and ducts installed in connection
therewith. Tenant's obligation to maintain the Supplemental Units shall
include, but not be limited to, the periodic cleaning and/or replacement of
filters, replacement of fuses and belts, the calibration of thermostats and
all startup and shut down maintenance of the Supplemental Units. Such
maintenance obligations shall be performed throughout the term of this
lease, on Tenant's behalf, by a reputable air-conditioning maintenance
company engaged by Tenant at its expense. All electricity used in
connection with the operation of the Supplemental Units and all blowers,
pumps, fans, chilling equipment and other facilities and equipment utilized
in connection therewith shall be supplied subject to, all of the terms
covenants and conditions contained in Article 44 hereof. Tenant shall
surrender the Supplemental Units and all repairs, additions and
replacements thereto and thereof to Landlord in working order and condition
(given the age of the Supplemental Units) on the expiration or sooner
termination of this lease.

       H. Provided that Tenant shall notify Landlord thereof in writing on
or before the date which is one (1) year after the Commencement Date,
Landlord shall, using the Building's existing valves, if any, at no
additional charge to Tenant, tap into the condenser water service system of
the Building designated for the tenants thereof (such tap-in being herein
referred to as a "CONDENSER WATER SYSTEM TAP-IN") so as to allow Tenant to
connect the Supplemental Units into such condenser water service system in
amounts sufficient to allow Tenant to operate the Condenser Water
Supplemental Units. If there is a sufficient number of valves available for
Landlord to complete the Condenser Water System Tap-In, Tenant shall pay
Landlord's actual costs incurred to furnish and install a sufficient number
of valves.

       I. After making such connection, Landlord shall, subject to energy
conservation requirements of governmental authorities, furnish condenser
water ("CONDENSER WATER SERVICE") to the Condenser Water Supplemental
Units, on a twenty-four (24) hour, 365 day per year basis (subject to
interruptions from time to time for maintenance, repairs and replacements
of and to the Building's condenser water system and equipment), unless, and
except to the extent that, Landlord is prevented, prohibited or limited
from furnishing such condenser water by reason of any laws and/or
requirements of public authorities. From and after the date on which the
System Tap-In is substantially completed, Tenant shall pay, as additional
rent, together with each monthly installment of fixed rent, an amount (the
"CONDENSER WATER Payment") equal to the product of the Condenser Water
Charge (as hereinafter defined) and the applicable number of BTU hours as
measured by the BTU Meters for each calendar month or such other period as
Landlord shall determine during the term of this lease. For the purposes of
this lease, "CONDENSER WATER CHARGE" shall mean $0.36 per ton per hour as
measured by the BTU Meter (the "CONDENSER WATER RATE"), subject to increase
from time to time, effective on January 1, 2000 and on each January 1
thereafter (each such January 1st being hereinafter referred to as a "CPI
INCREASE EFFECTIVE DATE"), by the percentage increase in the then Price
Index for the average monthly Price Index for the twelve (12) month period
ending with the November immediately preceding the CPI Increase Effective
Date in question, above the Base Price Index (as such terms are hereinafter
defined). Tenant shall not be obligated to pay any increases in the
Condenser Water Rate until it has received written notice thereof (a "CPI
NOTICE"). Each CPI Notice sent by Landlord, from time to time, shall be
effective for each increase in the Condenser Water Rate. Tenant shall pay
to Landlord, together with the next monthly installment of the Condenser
Water Payment, as increased by the most recent CPI Notice, the amount of
all such increases for which Tenant has not been billed retroactive to the
date of the increase in the Price Index as provided in such CPI Notice.
Until a CPI Notice is given to Tenant, the monthly installments of the
Condenser Water Charge shall be based on the Condenser Water Rate reflected
in the most recent CPI Notice.

       J. Provided that Tenant shall notify Landlord thereof in writing on
or before the date which is one (1) year after the Commencement Date,
Landlord shall, using the Building's existing valves, if any, at no
additional charge to Tenant, tap into the chilled water service system of
the Building designated for the tenants thereof (such tap-in being herein
referred to as a "CHILLED WATER SYSTEM TAP-IN") so as to allow Tenant to
connect the Chilled Water Supplemental Units into such chilled water
service system in amounts sufficient to allow Tenant to operate the Chilled
Water Supplemental Units. If there is not a sufficient number of valves
available for Landlord to complete the Chilled Water System Tap-In, Tenant
shall pay Landlord's actual costs incurred to furnish and install a
sufficient number of valves.

       K. After making such connection, Landlord shall, subject to energy
conservation requirements of governmental authorities, furnish chilled
water ("CHILLED WATER SERVICE") to the Chilled Water Supplemental Units, on
a twenty-four (24) hour, 365 day per year basis (subject to interruptions
from time to time for maintenance, repairs and replacements of and to the
Building's condenser water system and equipment), unless, and except to the
extent that, Landlord is prevented, prohibited or limited from furnishing
such chilled water by reason of any laws and/or requirements of public
authorities. From and after the date on which the Chilled Water System
Tap-In is substantially completed, Tenant shall pay, as additional rent,
together with each monthly installment of fixed rent, an amount (the
"CHILLED WATER PAYMENT") equal to the Chilled Water Charge and the
applicable number of BTU hours as measured by the BTU Meters for each
calendar month or such other period as Landlord shall determine during the
term of this lease. For the purposes of this lease, "CHILLED WATER CHARGE"
shall mean $0.36 per ton per hour as measured by the BTU Meters (the
"CHILLED WATER RATE"), subject to increase from time to time, effective on
each CPI Increase Effective Date, by the percentage increase in the then
Price Index for the average monthly Price Index for the twelve (12) month
period ending with the November immediately preceding the CPI Increase
Effective Date in question, above the Base Price Index. Tenant shall not be
obligated to pay any increases in the Chilled Water Rate until it has
received a CPI Notice. Each CPI Notice sent by Landlord, from time to time,
shall be effective for each increase in the Chilled Water Rate. Tenant
shall pay to Landlord, together with the next monthly installment of the
Chilled Water Charge, as increased by the most recent CPI Notice, the
amount of all such increases for which Tenant has not been billed
retroactive to the date of the increase in the Price Index as provided in
such CPI Notice. Until a CPI Notice is given to Tenant, the monthly
installments of the Chilled Water Charge shall be based on the Chilled
Water Rate reflected in the most recent CPI Notice.

       L. At Landlord's option, Landlord may bill Tenant for the Condenser
Water Charge and/or the Chilled Water Charge other than on a monthly basis,
provided that Landlord may not so bill Tenant more frequently than monthly.

       M. For the purposes of this Article 44:

                     (i)  "PRICE INDEX" shall mean "The Consumer Price Index
(All Urban Consumers, New York, N.Y. Northeastern N.J.)," issued by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor. In the
event that the Price Index ceases to use the 1982-84 average of 100 as the
basis of calculation, or if a substantial change is made in the term or
number of items contained in the Price Index, then the Price Index shall be
adjusted to the figure that would have been arrived at had the change in
the manner of computing the Price Index in effect on the date this lease
not been altered. In the event that such Price Index (or a successor or
substitute index) is not available, a reliable governmental or other
non-partisan publication evaluating the information theretofore used in
determining the Price Index shall be used;

                     (ii) "BASE PRICE INDEX" shall mean the average monthly
Price Index for the twelve (12) month period ending November 1998; and

                     (iii) Landlord's failure to prepare or deliver any CPI
Notice, or Landlord's failure to make a demand, shall not in any way cause
Landlord to forfeit or surrender its rights to collect any Condenser Water
Charge or Chilled Water Charge that may have become due during the term of
this lease. Tenant's liability for the amounts due under this Article shall
survive the expiration or sooner termination of the term of this lease.

       N. Landlord shall permit Tenant to use two (2) existing louver
openings on the 14th floor of the demised premises for Tenant's ventilation
needs or for use by Tenant for an air-cooled supplemental air conditioning
system. Landlord agrees to cooperate in all reasonable respects, at no cost
to Landlord in connection with any approval by the New York City Landmark's
Commission and other governmental authorities having jurisdiction for any
replacement or new louvers required by Tenant, any such louvers to be
installed on the Pine Street side of the Building.

46.    LANDLORD'S OTHER SERVICES:   

       A. Landlord, at its expense, shall provide public elevator service,
passenger and freight, by elevators serving the floors on which the demised
premises are situated during regular hours of business days with respect to
the passenger elevators, and during the hours (the "FREIGHT ELEVATOR
HOURS") of 8:00 am and 4:00 p.m. (excluding a one (1) hour lunch break) on
business days with respect to the freight elevator, and shall have at least
one passenger elevator subject to call at all other times. Tenant
acknowledges that Tenant's use of such freight elevator is non-exclusive
and subject to scheduling by Landlord. Tenant shall pay the charges
incurred in connection with use of the freight elevator as additional rent
within thirty (30) days after demand therefor, which charges shall be
billed at Landlord's actual cost therefor. If Tenant can demonstrate to
Landlord's reasonable satisfaction (including, without limitation, with
credible evidence of unreasonably excessive waiting time) a need for an
additional after hours passenger elevator car, Landlord shall make
available one (1) additional passenger elevator in an elevator bank serving
the demised premises.

       B. Landlord shall, at Tenant's expense and on Tenant's request,
initially list and thereafter maintain on the Building directory the names
of Tenant and any of its officers and employees, provided that the names so
listed shall not take up more than Tenant's Operational Proportionate Share
thereon. In the event that Tenant shall require additional or substitute
listings on the Building directory, Landlord shall, to the extent space for
such additional or substitute listings is available, maintain such
listings, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord an amount equal to Landlord's
reasonable charge for such listings.

       C. As long as Tenant is not in default under any of the covenants
under the lease, Landlord shall provide water for ordinary lavatory
purposes only, but if Tenant uses or consumes water for any other purposes
or in unusual quantities (of which fact Landlord shall be the sole judge),
Landlord may install a water meter at Tenant's expense to register such
water consumption and Tenant shall pay for water consumed as shown on said
meter as Additional Rental as and when bills are rendered.

       D. Landlord reserves the right, without any liability to Tenant
(except as otherwise expressly provided in this lease), to stop operating
any of the heating, ventilating, air conditioning, electric, sanitary,
elevator, or other building systems serving the demised premises, and to
stop the rendition of any of the other services required of Landlord under
this lease, whenever and for so long as may be necessary by reason of
accidents, emergencies, strikes, or the making of repairs or changes that
Landlord is required by this lease or by law to make or in good faith deems
necessary, by reason of difficulty in securing proper supplies of fuel,
steam, water, electricity, labor, or supplies, or by reason of any other
cause beyond Landlord's reasonable control. Landlord shall have no
responsibility or liability for interruption, curtailment or failure to
supply HVAC, condenser water, steam water, electricity, elevator, or
plumbing when same is due to a cause beyond the reasonable control of
Landlord or by any requirements of laws or due to the exercise of
Landlord's right to stop service as provided in this Section and same shall
not constitute an actual or constructive eviction, in whole or in part, or
entitle Tenant to any compensation or to any abatement or diminution of
fixed rent or additional rent, or relieve Tenant from any of its
obligations under this lease, or impose any liability upon Landlord or its
agents by reason of inconvenience or annoyance to Tenant, or injury to or
interruption of Tenant's business, or otherwise.

       E. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Landlord acknowledges the nature
of the Tenant named herein's business and agrees that in the event a
service interruption is reasonably anticipated by Landlord in connection
with the performance of Landlord's repair and maintenance obligations under
the lease (other than in connection with an emergency situation), it will
endeavor to notify Tenant no less than 3 business days prior to such
interruption.

       F. Subject to the Rules and Regulations now in effect or which may
be from time to time adopted by Landlord pursuant to the provisions of this
lease, and subject further to the other provisions of this lease, during
the term of this lease, Tenant shall have access to the demised premises 24
hours per day, 365 days per year.

47.    CLEANING:

       A. Landlord, at its expense, shall cause the demised premises to be
cleaned in a manner consistent with the cleaning services in a first-class
office building in the Wall Street district of Manhattan. Tenant shall pay
to Landlord on demand the costs incurred by Landlord for (a) extra cleaning
work in the demised premises required because of (i) misuse or neglect on
the part of Tenant or its employees or visitors, (ii) use of portions of
the demised premises for preparation, serving or consumption of food or
beverages, data processing or reproducing operations, private lavatories or
toilets or other special purposes requiring greater or more difficult
cleaning work than office areas, (iii) unusual quantity of interior glass
surfaces, (iv) non-building standard materials or finishes installed by
Tenant or at its request, and (b) removal from the demised premises and the
Building of any refuse and rubbish of Tenant in excess of that ordinarily
accumulated daily in the routine of business office occupancy. Landlord's
cleaning contractor and their employees shall have after hours access to
the demised premises and the free use of light, power and water in the
demised premises as reasonably required for the purpose of cleaning the
demised premises in accordance with Landlord's obligations hereunder,
subject to Tenant's reasonable security requirements of which Tenant has
provided in writing to Landlord.

       B. Tenant, at its sole cost and expense, shall keep clean, to the
reasonable satisfaction of Landlord, all portions of the demised premises
that Landlord is not obligated to clean (or to which Landlord does not have
access due to Tenant's security requirements), by using a cleaning
contractor reasonably acceptable to Landlord. Tenant shall place all of its
refuse and rubbish that Landlord is not obligated to remove from the
demised premises in sealed plastic bags at a location and at times to be
designated by Landlord. Tenant shall pay to Landlord, on demand, any costs
incurred by Landlord for (i) removal from the designated location and the
Building of so much of any refuse and rubbish of Tenant as shall exceed, in
Landlord's reasonable judgment, that ordinarily accumulated daily in the
routine of business office occupancy for premises equal in size to the
demised premises and (ii) Tenant's failure to place its refuse and rubbish
at the designated location, times or in the manner hereinbefore provided.
No one other than persons first approved by Landlord shall be permitted to
enter the demised premises or the Building for the purposes of cleaning the
same. All cleaning of the demised premises by Tenant shall be performed
strictly in accordance with the rules and regulations established from time
to time by Landlord in accordance with the provisions of this lease.

48.    ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING:

       A. (a) Tenant, for itself, its heirs, distributees, executors,
administrators, legal representatives, successors and assigns, expressly
covenants that it shall not assign, mortgage, or encumber this lease or any
of its rights or estates hereunder, sublet the demised premises or any part
thereof, or suffer, or permit, the demised premises, or any part thereof,
to be used or occupied by others, without the prior written consent of
Landlord in each instance. If this lease be assigned, or if the demised
premises or any part thereof be sublet or occupied by anybody other than
Tenant, Landlord may, after default by Tenant, collect rent from the
assignee, subtenant, or occupant, and apply the net amount collected to the
rent herein reserved, but no assignment, subletting, occupancy, or
collection shall be deemed a waiver of the provisions hereof, the
acceptance of the assignee, subtenant, or occupant as tenant, or a release
of Tenant from the further performance by Tenant of covenants on the part
of Tenant herein contained. Landlord's consent to an assignment or
subletting shall not, in any wise, be construed to relieve Tenant from
obtaining Landlord's express written consent to any further assignment or
subletting. In no event shall any permitted sublessee assign or encumber
its sublease, further sublet all or any portion of its sublet space, or
otherwise suffer or permit the sublet space, or any part thereof, to be
used or occupied by others, without Landlord's prior written consent in
each instance.

              (b) As used in this Article, except in the definition of the
term "Related Entity," the word "CONTROL," (including the derivations of
the word "CONTROL," such as "CONTROLLING" "CONTROLLED BY" or "UNDER COMMON
CONTROL WITH" or words of like import) shall mean: (i) ownership of more
than 25% of the outstanding voting capital stock of a corporation or more
than 25% of the beneficial interests of any other entity or (ii) the
ability effectively to control or direct the business decisions of such
corporation or entity. The term "RELATED ENTITY" shall mean an entity which
controls, is controlled by or is under common control with Tenant, which
for purposes hereof shall mean (x) ownership by Tenant of more than 25% of
the outstanding voting capital stock of a corporation or more than 25% of
the beneficial interests of any other entity and (y) the ability to
effectively control or direct the business decisions of such corporation or
entity

       B. If Tenant shall, at any time or times during the term of this
lease, desire to assign this lease or sublet all or part of the demised
premises, except to the extent expressly permitted pursuant to Sections
K(b) and N below, Tenant shall give notice thereof to Landlord, which
notice (the "A/S NOTICE") shall be accompanied by: (i) a conformed or
photostatic copy of the proposed assignment or sublease, the effective or
commencement date of which shall be not less than thirty (30) nor more than
ninety (90) days after the giving of such notice; (ii) a statement setting
forth, in reasonable detail, the identity of the proposed assignee or
subtenant, the nature of its business and its proposed use of the demised
premises; and (iii) current financial information with respect to the
proposed assignee or subtenant, including its most recent financial report.
In lieu of the conformed or photostatic copy of the proposed sublease
described in clause (i) hereof, the A/S Notice may be accompanied by a term
sheet or letter of intent (the "SUBLEASE TERM SHEET"), duly executed by
both Tenant and the proposed subtenant, if any, which sets forth (A) the
commencement date and the expiration date of the proposed subletting, (B)
the annual rental payable during the term of the proposed subletting, (C)
all additional rent payable under, or with respect to, the proposed
sublease, including, without limitation, any additional rent related to
increases in real estate taxes or operating expenses for the Building,
increases in any price index or wage or labor rate, and any sprinkler or
water charges, (D) the amount and form of any security to be deposited by
the proposed subtenant, (E) the dollar amount of any work which Tenant is
willing to perform or pay for in the Leaseback Space (as hereinafter
defined), (F) any concession or free rent period applicable to the proposed
subletting, (G) all other material terms and conditions of the proposed
subletting, and (H) if the Leaseback Space is not the entire demised
premises, the rentable area of the Leaseback Space and a floor plan
thereof. The A/S Notice shall be deemed an offer from Tenant to Landlord
whereby Landlord (or Landlord's designee) may, at its option, (i) sublease
such space (hereinafter referred to as the "LEASEBACK SPACE") from Tenant
upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth (if the proposed
transaction is a sublease of all or at least 90% of the rentable area of
the demised premises and the proposed subletting is for all (or
substantially all) of the balance of the term of this lease), (ii)
terminate this lease (if the proposed transaction is an assignment or a
sublease of all or substantially all of the demised premises), or (iii)
terminate this lease with respect to the Leaseback Space (if the proposed
transaction is a sublease of part of the demised premises and the proposed
subletting is for all (or substantially all) of the balance of the term of
this lease). Said options may be exercised by Landlord by notice to Tenant
at any time within thirty (30) days after such notice has been given by
Tenant to Landlord; and during such thirty (30) day period Tenant shall not
assign this lease nor sublet such space to any person.

       C. (a) If Landlord exercises its option to terminate this lease in
the case where Tenant desires either to assign this lease or sublet all or
substantially all of the demised premises, then, this lease shall end and
expire on the date that such assignment or sublet was to be effective or
commence, as the case may be, and the fixed rent and additional rent shall
be paid and apportioned to such date.

              (b) If Landlord exercises its option to terminate this lease
in part in any case where Tenant desires to sublet part of the demised
premises, then, (i) this lease shall end and expire with respect to such
part of the demised premises on the date that the proposed sublease was to
commence; (ii) from and after such date the fixed rent and additional rent
shall be adjusted, based upon the proportion that the rentable area of the
demised premises remaining bears to the total rentable area of the demised
premises; and (iii) Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additional rent,
within ten (10) days after Landlord's demand therefor, the costs incurred
by Landlord in physically separating such part of the demised premises from
the balance of the demised premises and in complying with any laws and
requirements of any public authorities relating to such separation (except
that to the extent that the proposed sublease delivered to Landlord
pursuant to Section B above or in the Sublease Term Sheet, as the case may
be, expressly provides that the proposed subtenant, at its expense, is
obligated to perform such work, Landlord shall pay the cost of such work).

       D. (a) If Landlord exercises its option to sublet the Leaseback
Space, such sublease to Landlord or its designee (as subtenant) shall be at
the lower of (i) the rental rate per rentable square foot of fixed rent and
additional rent then payable pursuant to this lease and (ii) the rentals
set forth in the proposed sublease, or in the Sublease Term Sheet, as the
case may be, and shall be for the same term as that of the proposed
subletting, and such sublease:

                     (v)    shall be expressly subject to all of the
covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions of this lease
except such as are irrelevant or inapplicable, and except as otherwise
expressly set forth to the contrary in this Section;

                     (w)    shall be upon the same terms and conditions as
those contained in the proposed sublease, or in the Sublease Term Sheet, as
the case may be reasonable, except such as are irrelevant or inapplicable
and except as otherwise expressly set forth to the contrary in this
Section;

                     (x)    shall give the sublessee the unqualified and
unrestricted right, without Tenant's permission, to assign such sublease or
any interest therein and/or to sublet the Leaseback Space or any part or
parts of the Leaseback Space and to make any and all changes, alterations,
and improvements in the space covered by such sublease and if the proposed
sublease will result in all or substantially all of the demised premises
being sublet, grant Landlord or its designee the option to extend the term
of such sublease for the balance of the term of this lease less one (1)
day;

                     (y)    shall provide that any assignee or further
subtenant, of Landlord or its designee, may, at the election of Landlord,
be permitted to make alterations, decorations and installations in the
Leaseback Space or any part thereof and shall also provide in substance
that any such alterations, decorations and installations in the Leaseback
Space therein made by any assignee or subtenant of Landlord or its designee
may be removed, in whole or in part, by such assignee or subtenant, at its
option, prior to or upon the expiration or other termination of such
sublease provided that such assignee or subtenant, at its expense, shall
repair any damage and injury to that portion of the Leaseback Space so
sublet caused by such removal; and

                     (z)    shall also provide that (A) the parties to such
sublease expressly negate any intention that any estate created under such
sublease be merged with any other estate held by either of said parties,
(B) any assignment or subletting by Landlord or its designee (as the
subtenant) may be for any purpose or purposes that Landlord, in Landlord's
uncontrolled discretion, shall deem suitable or appropriate, (C) Tenant, at
Tenant's expense, shall and will at all times provide and permit reasonably
appropriate means of ingress to and egress from the Leaseback Space so
sublet by Tenant to Landlord or its designee, (D) Landlord, at Tenant's
expense, may make such alterations as may be required or deemed necessary
by Landlord to physically separate the Leaseback Space from the balance of
the demised premises and to comply with any laws and requirements of public
authorities relating to such separation, and (E) that at the expiration of
the term of such sublease, Tenant will accept the space covered by such
sublease in its then existing condition, subject to the obligations of the
sublessee to make such repairs thereto as may be necessary to preserve the
premises demised by such sublease in good order and condition.

              (b) If Landlord exercises its option to sublet the Leaseback
Space, then:

                     (i)    Landlord shall indemnify and save Tenant harmless
from all obligations under this lease as to the Leaseback Space during the
period of time it is so sublet to Landlord;

                     (ii)   Performance by Landlord, or its designee, under a
sublease of the Leaseback Space shall be deemed performance by Tenant of
any similar obligation under this lease and any default under any such
sublease shall not give rise to a default under a similar obligation
contained in this Lease, nor shall Tenant be liable for any default under
this lease or deemed to be in default hereunder if such default is
occasioned by or arises from any act or omission of the tenant under such
sublease or Landlord or is occasioned by or arises from any act or omission
of any occupant holding under or pursuant to any such sublease; and

                     (iii) Tenant shall have no obligation, at the
expiration or earlier termination of the term of this lease, to remove any
alteration, installation or improvement made in the Leaseback Space by
Landlord.

       E. In the event that Tenant complies with the provisions of Section
B of this Article and Landlord does not exercise an option provided to it
thereunder within the time provided therefor, and provided that Tenant is
not in default of any of Tenant's obligations under this lease after notice
and the expiration of any applicable grace period, Landlord's consent
(which must be in writing and in form reasonably satisfactory to Landlord)
to the proposed assignment or sublease shall not be unreasonably withheld
or delayed provided that Tenant has complied with the following conditions:

              (a) in Landlord's reasonable judgment, the proposed assignee
or subtenant is engaged in such a business, and the demised premises, or
the relevant part thereof, will be used in such a manner, that: (i) is
limited to the use expressly permitted under this lease; and (ii) will not
violate any negative covenant as to use contained in any other lease of
space in the Building about which Tenant has been informed following its
request to Landlord for such information;

              (b) the proposed assignee or subtenant is a reputable person
of good character and with sufficient financial worth considering the
responsibility involved, and Landlord has been furnished with reasonable
proof thereof;

              (c) neither (i) the proposed assignee or sublessee nor (ii)
any person that, directly or indirectly, controls, is controlled by, or is
under common control with, the proposed assignee or sublessee or any person
who controls the proposed assignee or sublessee, is then an occupant or
tenant of any part of the Building;

              (d) the proposed assignee or sublessee is not a person with
whom Landlord is then, or shall have been during the previous six (6) month
period, negotiating to lease space in the Building;

              (e) the proposed sublease shall be in form reasonably
satisfactory to Landlord and shall comply with the applicable provisions of
this Article;

              (f) the demised premises shall not be subdivided into any
separately demised portion of less than 2,700 rentable square feet,
provided that there shall be no more than four (4) separate demised units
and/or no more than four (4) separate occupants on each floor;

              (g) the rental and other terms and conditions of the sublease
are the same as those contained in the proposed sublease furnished to
Landlord pursuant to Section B or in the Sublease Term Sheet, as the case
may be;

              (h) Tenant shall not have: (i) advertised or publicized in
any way the availability of the demised premises at a rental rate for space
in the Building lower than the fixed rent and additional rent at which
Landlord is then offering to lease other space in the Building at such time
without prior notice to, and approval by, Landlord, which approval Landlord
agrees not to unreasonably withhold, nor shall any advertisement state the
name (as distinguished from the address) of the Building or the proposed
rental, or (ii) listed the demised premises for subletting or assignment,
with a broker, agent or representative, or otherwise at a rental rate less
than the greater rate of (x) the fixed rent and additional rent then
payable hereunder for such space, or (y) the fixed rent and additional rent
at which Landlord is then offering to lease other space in the Building;

              (i) the sublease shall not allow use of the demised premises
or any part thereof: (i) as a restaurant, luncheonette, or otherwise for
the preparation, except as otherwise specifically permitted in Section 40A,
and/or sale of food for on or off premises consumption; (ii) as a discount
store; (iii) as a multiple tenancy store; (iv) by a foreign or domestic
governmental agency; (v) as a betting parlor or gambling casino; or (vi) by
a utility company;

              (j) the proposed assignee or sublessee is not a person
entitled, directly or indirectly, to diplomatic or sovereign immunity or is
not subject to service of process in New York State or to the jurisdiction
of the State and Federal Courts located in New York State; and

              (k) the sublease shall not provide for an option on behalf of
the subtenant thereunder to extend or renew the term of such sublease
beyond the initial term hereof.

Landlord agrees to grant or deny its consent to such sublease within thirty
(30) days after it receives the A/S Notice in question, provided that the
A/S Notice contains all of the information required pursuant to Section B
above. Tenant shall reimburse Landlord on demand and as additional rent,
for all reasonable costs and expenses that may be incurred or paid by
Landlord in connection with all proposed assignments and sublettings,
including, without limitation, the costs of making investigations as to the
acceptability of the proposed assignee or subtenant, and legal costs
incurred in connection with the reviewing of the proposed assignment or
subletting and all of the documents and other information related thereto
(which costs and expenses Tenant covenants and agrees to reimburse to
Landlord regardless of whether Landlord consents to the proposed assignment
or sublease).

       F. In the event that (i) Landlord fails to exercise any of its
options under Section B of this Article and consents to a proposed
assignment or sublease and (ii) Tenant fails to execute and deliver the
assignment or sublease to which Landlord consented within sixty (60) days
after the giving of such consent, then Tenant shall again comply with all
of the provisions and conditions of Section B, before assigning this lease
or subletting all or part of the demised premises.

       G. Each subletting pursuant to this Article shall be subject to all
of the covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions contained in
this lease. Notwithstanding any such subletting and/or acceptance of rent
or additional rent by Landlord from any subtenant, Tenant shall and will
remain fully liable for the payment of the fixed rent and additional rent
due, and to become due, hereunder, for the performance of all of the
covenants, agreements, terms, provisions and conditions contained in this
lease on the part of Tenant to be performed and for all acts and omissions
of any licensee, subtenant, or any other person claiming under or through
any subtenant that shall be in violation of any of the obligations of this
lease, and any such violation shall be deemed to be a violation by Tenant.
Tenant further agrees that, notwithstanding any such subletting, no other
and further subletting of the demised premises by Tenant, or any person
claiming through or under Tenant (except as provided in Section K of this
Article), shall, or will be, made, except upon compliance with, and subject
to, the provisions of this Article. If Landlord shall decline to give its
consent to any proposed assignment or sublease, or if Landlord shall
exercise any of its options under Section B, Tenant shall indemnify, defend
and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all losses,
liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable counsel
fees) resulting from any claims that may be made against Landlord by the
proposed assignee or subtenant or by any brokers or other persons claiming
a commission or similar compensation in connection with the proposed
assignment or sublease.

       H. With respect to each and every sublease or subletting, whether
made with Landlord's consent pursuant to Section A or without Landlord's
consent pursuant to Section K, it is further agreed that:

              (a) no subletting shall be for a term ending later than one
day prior to the expiration date of this lease;

              (b) no sublease shall be valid, and no subtenant shall take
possession of the demised premises or any part thereof, until a true,
complete, fully-executed counterpart of such sublease has been delivered to
Landlord; and

              (c) each sublease shall provide that it is subject and
subordinate to this lease and to the matters to which this lease is or
shall be subordinate, and that, in the event of termination, re-entry, or
dispossess by Landlord under this lease, Landlord may, at its option, take
over all of the right, title and interest of Tenant as sublandlord under
such sublease, and such subtenant shall, at Landlord's option, attorn to
Landlord pursuant to the then executory provisions of such sublease, except
that Landlord shall not (i) be liable for any previous act or omission of
Tenant under such sublease, (ii) be subject to any offset, not expressly
provided in such sublease, that theretofore accrued to such subtenant
against Tenant or (iii) be bound by any previous modification of such
sublease or by any previous prepayment of more than one month's fixed rent
or any additional rent then due.

       I. Any assignment or transfer, whether made with Landlord's consent
pursuant to Section A or without Landlord's consent pursuant to Section K,
shall be made only if, and shall not be effective until, the assignee shall
execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord an agreement, in form and
substance satisfactory to Landlord, whereby the assignee shall assume all
of the obligations of this lease on the part of Tenant to be performed or
observed and whereby the assignee shall agree that the provisions contained
in Section A shall, notwithstanding such assignment or transfer, continue
to be binding upon it in respect of all future assignments and transfers.
The original named Tenant covenants that, notwithstanding any assignment or
transfer, whether or not in violation of the provisions of this lease, and
notwithstanding the acceptance of fixed rent and/or additional rent by
Landlord from an assignee, transferee, or any other party, the original
named Tenant shall remain fully liable for the payment of the fixed rent
and additional rent and for the other obligations of this lease on the part
of Tenant to be performed or observed.

       J. If Landlord shall give its consent to any assignment of this
lease or to any sublease, excluding such assignments or subleases expressly
permitted pursuant to Sections K(b) and N below, Tenant shall, in
consideration therefor, pay to Landlord, as additional rent:

              (i) in the case of an assignment, an amount equal to (x)
fifty percent (50%) of all sums and other consideration paid to Tenant by
the assignee for, or by reason of, such assignment, including all sums paid
for the sale of Tenant's fixtures, leasehold improvements, equipment,
furniture, furnishings, or other personal property ("TENANT'S PROPERTY")
and (y), in the case of a sale of Tenant's Property, the net unamortized or
undepreciated cost of Tenant's Property as reflected on Tenant's books,
provided, and to the extent that, such payment does not exceed the then
reasonable fair market value of Tenant's Property; and (z) the reasonable
out-of-pocket costs of Tenant paid by Tenant directly in connection with
the assignment, including, without limitation, marketing costs, tenant
improvement work allowances, rent concessions, broker's commissions and
attorney's fees, and the cost of construction to prepare the demised
premises (or the applicable portion thereof) for the assignees occupancy;
all of which costs, for the purposes of determining the amounts payable to
Landlord pursuant to this subsection (ii), shall be amortized on a straight
line basis over the term of the lease; and

              (ii) in the case of a sublease, an amount equal to (x) fifty
percent (50%) of any rents, additional charges, or other consideration
payable under the sublease by the subtenant to Tenant that are in excess of
the fixed rent and additional rent accruing during the term of the sublease
in respect of the subleased space (at the rate per square foot payable by
Tenant hereunder) pursuant to the terms hereof, including all sums paid for
the sale or rental of Tenant's Property less (y), in the case of a sale of
Tenant's Property, the net unamortized or undepreciated cost of Tenant's
Property as reflected on Tenant's books, provided, and to the extent that,
such payment does not exceed the then reasonable fair market value of
Tenant's Property and (z) the reasonable out-of-pocket costs of Tenant paid
by Tenant directly in connection with the subletting, including, without
limitation, marketing costs, tenant improvement work allowances, rent
concessions, broker's commissions and attorney's fees, and the cost of
construction to prepare the demised premises (or the applicable portion
thereof) for the subtenant's occupancy; all of which costs, for the
purposes of determining the amounts payable to Landlord pursuant to this
subsection (ii), shall be amortized on a straight line basis over the term
of the sublease.

The sums payable under this Section J shall be paid to Landlord as and when
payable by the assignee or subtenant to Tenant.

       K. (a) For the purpose of this Article, the following are
"PROHIBITED TRANSFERS" to which Section A of this Article shall apply as if
any of such Prohibited Transfers were an assignment of this lease:

              The issuance or transfer of interests in Tenant (whether
stock, partnership interests, interests in a limited liability company or
otherwise) to a person or group of related persons, whether in a single
transaction or a series of related or unrelated transactions, in such
quantities that after such issuance or transfer, control of Tenant (as it
shall be constituted after giving effect to such issuance or transfer of
interests in Tenant), directly or indirectly, shall have changed, shall be
deemed a Prohibited Transfer unless the conditions of subsection (b) below
are met. Any person or legal representative of Tenant, to whom Tenant's
interest under this lease passes by operation of law, or otherwise, shall
be bound by the provisions of this Article.

       (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Tenant or an entity which
controls Tenant is a corporation listed and traded on a nationally
recognized stock exchange or over-the-counter market, the transfer, sale or
other disposition (including issuance) of the stock of such corporation
shall not be deemed an assignment or sublease of this lease or a Prohibited
Transfer. In addition, (i) transfers of the stock of Tenant to a
corporation that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control
with Tenant or into which or with which Tenant is merged or consolidated,
or to which substantially all of Tenant's assets are transferred, or (ii)
an assignment or a sublease to a Related Entity shall not be a Prohibited
Transfer, provided that: (A) the successor to Tenant has a net worth,
computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, at
least equal to the net worth of Tenant herein named on the date of this
lease ("TENANT'S NET WORTH") and reasonable proof satisfactory to Landlord
of such net worth shall have been delivered to Landlord, together with such
books and records of the then Tenant as may be necessary to establish that
any assignee claimed by Tenant to be a Related Entity is in fact a Related
Entity, on the effective date of any such transaction; (B) if the successor
to Tenant does not have a net worth equal to or greater than Tenant's Net
Worth, then Tenant has deposited with Landlord on or before the effective
date of such merger, consolidation or transfer, in addition to the amount
required pursuant to Article 52 above, an amount (the "ADDITIONAL
SECURITY") equal to the fixed rent payable (without taking into account any
abatement or reduction whatsoever) for the one (1) year period commencing
on the date of such merger, consolidation or transfer, which Additional
Security shall be held, applied or retained by Landlord in accordance with
the provisions of Article 52 above; (C) the purposes for which such
successor to Tenant intends to use the demised premises (or the applicable
portions thereof) are uses expressly permitted by this lease and (D) an
executed duplicate original of the assignment and assumption agreement
(other than in connection with the sale of stock only) shall be delivered
to Landlord for review by Landlord and Landlord's counsel, on the effective
date thereof. Simultaneously with the delivery of such assignment and
assumption agreement, Tenant shall deliver to Landlord a certified copy of
a duly adopted resolution of the board of directors of both Tenant and the
assignee, in form and content reasonably satisfactory to Landlord,
authorizing the execution, acknowledgment and delivery of said assignment
and assumption agreement, and the transactions contemplated therein. If the
security deposited under Article 52 of this lease is in the form of a
letter of credit, then the Additional Security may be in the form of an
amendment to said letter of credit, provided that such amendment shall only
increase the amount of said letter of credit by the amount of the
Additional Security but does not otherwise amend or modify same. If Tenant
shall have deposited with Landlord the Additional Security pursuant to
clause (B) above, Tenant may request the return of the Additional Security
at anytime provided that (i) Tenant notifies Landlord that Tenant's net
worth, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles, is equal to or greater than Tenant's Net Worth and (ii) at the
time Landlord receives Tenant's request for the return of the Additional
Security, and for at least twelve (12) consecutive months prior to
Landlord's receipt of such request, Tenant's net worth, computed in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, is, and has been,
equal to or greater than Tenant's Net Worth (and evidence thereof,
reasonably satisfactory to Landlord, is furnished to Landlord together with
such request), (iii) no portion of the security deposited under Article 52
above or of the Additional Security shall have been used, applied, retained
or drawn upon pursuant to Article 52, (iv) at the time Landlord receives
such request, this lease is in full force and effect, and (v) Tenant is not
then in default in its obligation to pay any fixed rent or additional rent
or to observe, perform or comply with any other material term, covenant or
condition in this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply
with, then Tenant may request Landlord to reduce the amount of the security
deposit being held by Landlord under Article 52 by the amount of the
Additional Security, in which event, provided that at all of the conditions
in clauses (i) through (v) have been satisfied, Landlord shall either
return to Tenant from the security deposit being held by Landlord under
Article 52 an amount equal to the Additional Security, or, if such security
is in the form of a letter of credit, Landlord shall consent in writing to,
and, at no cost to Landlord, (A) accept from the Issuing Bank, an amendment
to the letter of credit which reduces the amount thereof by an amount equal
to the Additional Security but which does not otherwise amend or modify
same.

       L. The joint and several liability of Tenant and any immediate or
remote successor in interest to Tenant, and the due performance of the
obligations of this lease on Tenant's part to be performed or observed,
shall not be discharged, released, or impaired in any respect by any
agreement or stipulation made by Landlord extending the time of, or
modifying any of the obligations of, this lease, or by any waiver or
failure of Landlord to enforce any of the obligations of this lease.

       M. The listing of any name other than that of Tenant, whether on the
doors of the demised premises, on the Building directory, if any, or
otherwise, shall not operate to vest any right or interest in this lease or
in the demised premises, nor shall it be deemed to be the consent of
Landlord to any assignment or transfer of this lease, to any sublease of
the demised premises, or to the use or occupancy thereof by others;
provided however, Tenant shall be permitted to list the name of Licensees
(as defined below) occupying a portion of the demised premises provided
such listings shall not exceed by more than ten percent (10%) the space
provided Tenant for such purpose.

       N. Notwithstanding anything contained in Section A above to the
contrary, but provided this lease is in full force and effect and the
Tenant named herein is the then Tenant under this lease, Tenant may permit
the use and occupancy during the term of this lease of up to 10,800 square
feet of the rentable square feet per floor of the demised premises, in the
aggregate, by persons or entities who are then and remain affiliates,
licensees or concessionaires of Tenant with which Tenant has a business
relationship other than the letting of space in the Building (hereinafter
collectively referred to as the "LICENSEES"), for the uses permitted in
Section 40A, and for no other purpose, provided, and upon the condition
that:

              (a) At least ten (10) business days prior to the date each
Licensee first so uses or occupies the demised premises, Tenant shall give
Landlord notice of such intended use or occupancy;

              (b) Such use and occupancy shall be subject to all the terms,
covenants and conditions to this lease on Tenant's part to observe and
perform, as if such Licensee(s) were the Tenant hereunder;

              (c) Such use and occupancy shall in no way increase, amend,
modify or extend Landlord's obligations or liabilities under this lease in
any way whatsoever, or diminish, restrict, limit, forfeit or waive any of
Landlord's rights or remedies under this lease in any way whatsoever;

              (d) Such use and occupancy shall in no way give to the
Licensees any rights or remedies against Landlord, and Tenant shall
indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all, actions,
proceedings, liabilities, obligations, claims, damages, deficiencies,
losses, judgments, suits, expenses and costs (including, without
limitation, court costs and reasonable legal fees and disbursements for
which Landlord is liable) arising under or out of or in connection with or
resulting from such use and occupancy;

              (e) Tenant shall remain fully liable for the payment of fixed
rent and additional rent due and to become due under this lease and for the
performance and observance of all of the terms, covenants and conditions
contained in this lease on Tenant's part to perform or observe, and all
acts or omissions by the Licensees or anyone claiming under or through
Tenant or the Licensees which shall be a default under this lease, shall be
deemed to be a default by Tenant;

              (f) Such use and occupancy shall not be deemed a waiver of
Landlord's rights under this Lease to consent to the use or occupancy of
the demised premises (or any portion thereof) by any other person or entity
or to the assignment of this lease or the subletting of the demised
premises (or any portion thereof);

              (g) Prior to such use or occupancy by each Licensee, Tenant
shall deliver a true and complete copy of this lease to such Licensee, and
any use or occupancy by the Licensees of the demised premises (or any
portion thereof) shall be deemed an acceptance by the Licensees of all of
the conditions set forth in this Section N; and

              (h) The space or area of the demised premises used or
occupied by the Licensees may be separately demised or otherwise physically
separated from the balance of the demised premises, provided that there
shall be no more than four (4) such separately demised units, each of which
shall be a minimum of 2,700 square feet, and no more than four (4) separate
occupants per floor.

For the purposes of this Section N, an "AFFILIATE" shall mean any
corporation, partnership, joint venture, limited liability company or other
form of business entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common
control with, Tenant. For the purposes of the preceding sentence, the term
"CONTROL" shall mean the possession of power to direct or cause the
direction of the management and policy of the entity in question, whether
through the ownership of voting securities or partnership or membership
interests, by statute or according to the provisions of a contract.

49.    INSURANCE:

       A. Tenant shall not violate, or permit the violation of, any
condition imposed by the standard fire insurance policy then issued for
office buildings in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, and shall
not do, permit anything to be done, keep, or permit anything to be kept, in
the demised premises that would: (i) subject Landlord to any liability or
responsibility for personal injury, death, or property damage; (ii)
increase the fire or other casualty insurance rate on the Building or the
property therein over the rate that would otherwise then be in effect
(unless Tenant pays the resulting premium as provided in Section F of this
Article); or (iii) result in insurance companies of good standing refusing
to insure the Building or any of such property in amounts reasonably
satisfactory to Landlord.

       B. Tenant covenants to provide on or before the Commencement Date
and to keep in force during the term hereof, the following insurance
coverage which coverage shall be effective on the Commencement Date:

              (a) A commercial general liability policy of insurance naming
as additional insureds Landlord and the holders of all superior mortgages,
the lessors under all superior leases, Landlord's agents and all other
persons and entities reasonably designated by Landlord (but only to the
extent that Landlord specifically requests such holders, lessors, agents
and other persons and entities to be so named) and protecting Landlord,
Tenant, all of Tenant's subtenants, and all such other additional insureds,
against (i) all claims, demands or actions for injury to, or death of,
persons or property, arising from, related to, or in any way connected with
the use or occupancy of the demised premises, or caused by the negligence
or errors or omissions to act of Tenant, its agents, servants and
contractors, or of any person or entity claiming by, through or under
Tenant, and (ii) all accidents occurring in or about the demised premises.
Such policy shall have limits of liability of not less than Three Million
($3,000,000.00) Dollars combined single limit coverage on a per occurrence
basis, including property damage. Such policy shall contain a contractual
liability coverage endorsement with respect to Tenant's indemnification
obligations under this lease, and shall include independent contractors'
coverage. Such insurance may be carried under a blanket policy covering the
demised premises and other locations of Tenant, if any, provided such
policy contains an endorsement (i) naming Landlord (and the above-mentioned
other persons and entities) as additional insureds, (ii) specifically
referencing the demised premises, and (iii) guaranteeing a minimum limit
available for the demised premises equal to the limits of liability
required under this lease;

              (b) "All Risk" coverage in an amount adequate to cover the
cost of replacement of all of personal property, fixtures, furnishing and
equipment, including Tenant's Work located in the demised premises;

              (c) worker's compensation, and, if required by applicable
law, disability and such other similar insurance, in statutory amounts,
covering all persons that are performing Changes (as hereinafter defined),
or with respect to whom death or bodily injury claims could be asserted
against Landlord or the Land or the Building; and

              (d) business interruption insurance in the amount of annual
gross income for one (1) year.

       All such policies shall be issued by companies of recognized
responsibility licensed to do business in New York State and rated by
Best's Insurance Reports or any successor publication of comparable
standing and carrying a rating of A VII or better or the then equivalent of
such rating. Prior to the time that such insurance is first required to be
carried by Tenant, and, thereafter, at least fifteen (15) days prior to the
expiration of any such policies, Tenant agrees to deliver to Landlord
either duplicate originals of the aforesaid policies or certificates
evidencing such insurance, provided that said certificate contains an
endorsement that such insurance may not be modified or cancelled except
upon fifteen (15) days' notice to Landlord, together with evidence of
payment for the policy. Tenant's failure to provide and keep in force the
aforementioned insurance shall be regarded as a material default hereunder,
entitling Landlord to exercise any or all of the remedies as provided in
this lease in the event of Tenant's default.

       C. Landlord and Tenant shall each endeavor to secure an appropriate
clause in, or an endorsement upon, each fire or extended coverage policy
obtained by it and covering the Building, the demised premises, or the
personal property, fixtures and equipment located therein or thereon,
pursuant to which the respective insurance companies waive subrogation or
permit the insured, prior to any loss, to agree with a third party to waive
any claim it might have against said third party. The waiver of subrogation
or permission for waiver of any claim hereinbefore referred to shall extend
to the agents of each party and its employees and, in the case of Tenant,
shall also extend to all other persons and entities occupying or using the
demised premises in accordance with the terms of this lease. If, and to the
extent that, such waiver or permission can be obtained only upon payment of
an additional charge, then, except as provided in Sections D and E of this
Article, the party benefiting from the waiver or permission shall pay such
charge upon demand, or shall be deemed to have agreed that the party
obtaining the insurance coverage in question shall be free of any further
obligations under the provisions hereof relating to such waiver or
permission.

       D. In the event that Tenant shall be unable at any time to obtain
one of the provisions referred to in Section C above, in any of its
insurance policies, Tenant shall cause Landlord to be named in such policy
or policies as one of the assureds, but if any additional premium shall be
imposed for the inclusion of Landlord as such an assured, Landlord shall
pay such additional premium upon demand or Tenant shall be excused from its
obligations under Section C with respect to the insurance policy or
policies for which such additional premiums would be imposed. In the event
that Landlord shall have been named as one of the assureds in any of
Tenant's policies in accordance with the foregoing, Landlord shall endorse
promptly to the order of Tenant, without recourse, any check, draft, or
order for the payment of money representing the proceeds of any such
policy, or any other payment growing out of or connected with said policy,
and Landlord hereby irrevocably waives any and all rights in and to such
proceeds and payments.

       E. In the event that Landlord shall be unable at any time to obtain
one of the provisions referred to in Section C in any of its insurance
policies, Landlord shall, at Tenant's option, cause Tenant to be named in
such policy or policies as one of the assureds, but if any additional
premium shall be imposed for the inclusion of Tenant as such an assured,
Tenant shall pay such additional premium upon demand. In the event that
Tenant shall have been named as one of the assureds in any of Landlord's
policies in accordance with the foregoing, Tenant shall endorse promptly to
the order of Landlord, without recourse, any check, draft, or order for the
payment of money representing the proceeds of any such policy, or any other
payment growing out of or connected with said policy, and Tenant hereby
irrevocably waives any and all rights in and to such proceeds and payments.

       F. Subject to the provisions of Sections C, D and E, and insofar as
may be permitted by the terms of the insurance policies carried by it, each
party hereby releases the other with respect to any claim (including a
claim for negligence) that it might otherwise have against the other party
for loss, damages, or destruction with respect to its property by fire or
other casualty (including rental value or business interruption, as the
case may be) occurring during the term of this lease.

       G. If, by reason of a failure of Tenant to comply with the
provisions of Section A of this Article, the rate of fire insurance with
extended coverage on the Building or equipment or other property of
Landlord shall be higher than it otherwise would be, Tenant shall reimburse
Landlord, on demand, for that part of the premiums for fire insurance and
extended coverage paid by Landlord because of such failure on the part of
Tenant.

       H. If any dispute shall arise between Landlord and Tenant with
respect to the incurrence or amount of any additional insurance premium
referred to in Section F, the dispute shall be determined by arbitration.

       I. A schedule or make up of rates for the Building or the demised
premises, as the case may be, issued by the New York Fire Insurance Rating
Organization or other similar body making rates for fire insurance and
extended coverage for the premises concerned, shall be presumptive evidence
of the facts therein stated and of the several items and charges in the
fire insurance rate with extended coverage then applicable to such
premises.

50.    SUBORDINATION:   

       A. For the purposes of this lease, the mortgages referred to in
Article 7 of this lease are herein defined as "SUPERIOR MORTGAGES" and the
leases referred to in said Article 7 are herein defined as "SUPERIOR
LEASES." The then holders of all superior mortgages and the then lessors
under all superior leases are intended to be third-party beneficiaries of
this Article, and may enforce the provisions of this Article before or
after the foreclosure of the superior mortgage in question and before or
after the termination of the superior lease in question, as the case may
be. In the event of any act or omission of Landlord that would give Tenant
the right, immediately or after lapse of a period of time, to cancel or
terminate this lease, or to claim a partial or total eviction, or entitle
Tenant to any abatement or offset against the payment of rent. Tenant shall
not exercise such right (i) until it has given written notice of such act
or omission or the accrual of such claim or right to the holder of each
superior mortgage and the lessor of each superior lease whose name and
address shall previously have been furnished to Tenant in writing, and
(ii)(A) if the Landlord's default in question can be cured by the payment
of money or is otherwise curable within thirty (30) days, the holders of
each superior mortgage and the lessors under each superior lease who shall
have become entitled under such superior mortgage(s) and such superior
lease(s) to cure such default shall have thirty (30) days to cure same; and
(B) if the Landlord's default in question cannot be cured by the payment of
money and cannot otherwise reasonably be cured within thirty (30) days, the
holders of each superior mortgage and the lessors under each superior lease
who shall have become entitled under such superior mortgage(s) and such
superior lease(s) to cure such default shall have such period of time as is
necessary to cure the default; provided that, in the case of clause (ii)(B)
above, (x) the holder or lessor, as the case may be, notifies Tenant of its
intention to cure the default, (y) such holder or lessor, as the case may
be, commences action to cure the default within thirty (30) days, and (z)
such holder or lessor, as the case may be, thereafter proceeds diligently
at all times to cure the default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no
event shall any holder of a superior mortgage or lessor under a superior
lease have a lesser period of time to cure a default than is granted to
Landlord under this lease.

       B. If the lessor of a superior lease or the holder of a superior
mortgage shall succeed to the rights of Landlord under this lease, whether
through possession or foreclosure action or delivery of a new lease or
deed, or if a superior lease shall terminate or be terminated for any
reason, then, at the election and upon demand of the party so succeeding to
Landlord's rights, as the successor owner of the property of which the
demised premises is a part, or as the mortgagee in possession thereof, or
otherwise (such party, owner or mortgagee being herein sometimes called the
"SUCCESSOR landlord"), Tenant shall attorn to and recognize such successor
landlord as Tenant's landlord under this lease, and shall promptly execute
and deliver any instrument that such successor landlord may reasonably
request to evidence such attornment. Upon such attornment, this lease shall
continue in full force and effect as, or as if it were, a direct lease
between the successor landlord and Tenant, upon all of the executory terms,
conditions and covenants as are set forth in this lease and shall be
applicable after such attornment, except that the successor landlord shall
not be (i) liable for any previous act or omission of Landlord under this
lease, (ii) subject to any credit, offset, claim, counterclaim, demand or
defense which Tenant may have against Landlord, (iii) bound by any previous
modification of this lease (made without the successor landlord's consent)
or by any previous prepayment of more than one (1) month's rent, (iv) bound
by any covenant of Landlord to undertake or complete any construction of
the demised premises or any portion thereof, (v) required to account for
any security deposit of Tenant other than any security deposit actually
delivered to the successor landlord by Landlord, (vi) liable for the
obligations of Landlord under this lease for any period of time other than
such period as such successor landlord holds such interest, and (vii)
responsible for any monies owing by Landlord to the credit of Tenant. The
foregoing provisions shall inure to the benefit of any successor landlord,
shall apply to the tenancy of Tenant notwithstanding that this lease may
terminate upon the termination of the superior lease, and shall be
self-operative upon any such demand, without requiring any further
instrument to give effect to said provisions. Tenant, however, upon demand
of any successor landlord, agrees to execute, from time to time, an
instrument in confirmation of the foregoing provisions, satisfactory to
such successor landlord, in which Tenant shall acknowledge such attornment.
Nothing contained in this paragraph shall be construed to impair any right,
privilege or option of any successor landlord or, except as otherwise
provided in this lease, to impair any right, privilege or option of Tenant.

       C. If, in connection with obtaining financing or refinancing for the
Building, or Landlord's estate and interest therein, a lender shall request
reasonable modifications to this lease as a condition to such financing or
refinancing, Tenant will not withhold, delay or defer its consent thereto,
provided that such modifications do not increase the obligations of Tenant
hereunder (except, perhaps, to the extent that Tenant may be required to
give notices of any defaults by Landlord to such lender and/or permit the
curing of such defaults by such lender together with the granting of such
additional time for such curing as may be required for such lender to get
possession of the Building or Landlord's interest therein) or materially
adversely affect the leasehold interest hereby created. In no event shall a
requirement that the consent of any such lender be given for any
modification of this lease or subject to the provisions of this lease for
any assignment or sublease, be deemed to materially adversely affect the
leasehold interest hereby created. In the event Tenant fails to execute and
deliver to Landlord a duly executed modification or amendment of this lease
incorporating such modification within fifteen (15) days of request
therefor, Landlord may execute such amendment or modification for and on
behalf of Tenant as its attorney-in-fact coupled with an interest solely to
execute and deliver any instruments required to carry out the intent of
this Section C on behalf of Tenant.

       D. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article to the
contrary, Landlord shall obtain and deliver to Tenant a Subordination,
Non-Disturbance and Attornment Agreement (hereinafter referred to as an
"SNDA") prior to the Commencement Date for the benefit of Tenant from the
holder of the superior mortgage currently encumbering the Building, which
SNDA shall be in recordable form and substantially in the form attached
hereto as EXHIBIT E.

       E. (a) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article to the
contrary, but provided that the Tenant named herein is the then Tenant
hereunder, and such Tenant then occupies for its own account at least
ninety (90%) percent of the rentable area of the demised premises, Landlord
shall use its best efforts to obtain and deliver to Tenant an SNDA for the
benefit of Tenant from the holder of each future superior mortgage and from
any lessor under each future superior lease, which SNDA shall be in form
and content then utilized by such holder or lessor and which shall provide,
in substance, that as long as Tenant is not in default in the payment of
fixed rent or additional rent or any other term, covenant or condition of
this lease, beyond any applicable notice and cure period, and provided
Tenant attorns to such holder or lessor, as the case may be, under the
terms and provisions of this lease, (a) its rights as Tenant hereunder
shall not be affected or terminated, (b) its possession of the demised
premises shall not be disturbed, and (c) no action or proceeding shall be
commenced to remove or evict Tenant.

              (b) For the purposes of this Section E, "best efforts" shall
mean an obligation to use reasonable commercial efforts, and shall not be
interpreted to require Landlord to enter into any agreement or undertaking
to pay or otherwise confer or to actually pay or otherwise confer anything
of value to or for the benefit of a third-party (including, without
limitation, such holder or lessor), to guarantee any obligation, or to
otherwise modify any of its obligations under such superior mortgage or
superior lease. Landlord's failure or inability to obtain or deliver to
Tenant an SNDA (despite using such best efforts) under this paragraph E
shall not be a default by Landlord and shall not entitle Tenant to exercise
any rights or remedies whatsoever, but only in the case of Landlord's
failure or inability to obtain or deliver an SNDA from any holder under a
future superior mortgage, this lease shall not be subject and subordinate
to such future superior mortgage unless and until such SNDA is delivered to
Tenant.

51.    FURTHER PROVISIONS AS TO DEFAULT:   

       A. All sums of money, other than the fixed rent reserved in this
lease, that shall become due from and payable by Tenant to Landlord
hereunder shall constitute additional rent, for default in the payment of
which Landlord shall have the same remedies as for a default in the payment
of fixed rent.

       B. It is the intention of the parties that the provisions of Article
17 of this lease shall and do create an enforceable conditional limitation
applicable to any default by Tenant in the observance, performance or
compliance with any of the terms, covenants or conditions in this lease on
Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply with, including, without
limitation, the covenant to pay fixed rent and additional rent.

       C. If Tenant is late in making any payment due to Landlord from
Tenant under this lease for five (5) or more days from the date when due,
then interest shall become due and owing to Landlord on such payment from
the date upon which it was due, which interest shall be computed at the
rate of two (2%) percent per annum over the then prime rate of Citibank,
N.A., but in no event in excess of the maximum lawful rate of interest
chargeable to corporations in the State of New York.

       D. Bills for any expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with
any performance by it for the account of Tenant, and bills for all costs,
expenses and disbursements of every kind and nature whatsoever, including
reasonable counsel fees, involved in collecting or endeavoring to collect
the fixed rent or additional rent or any part thereof or enforcing or
endeavoring to enforce any rights against Tenant, under or in connection
with this lease, or pursuant to law, including any such cost, expense and
disbursement involved in instituting and prosecuting summary proceedings,
as well as bills for any property, material, labor, or services provided,
furnished, or rendered, by Landlord or at its instance to Tenant, may be
sent by Landlord to Tenant monthly, or immediately, at Landlord's option,
and shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms of such bills.

       E. Tenant covenants and agrees that it shall not enter into any
assignment of lease, assignment of sublease or sublease of premises with
any other tenant or occupant of the Building whereby such other tenant or
occupant assigns its lease or sublease or sublets all or part of its
premises to Tenant; provided that the foregoing covenant shall not apply to
such other tenant or occupant of the Building with which or to which Tenant
merges, consolidates or transfers all or substantially all of its assets.
The covenants and obligations contained in this Paragraph E shall be deemed
material covenants and obligations of Tenant under this lease for default
of which shall entitle Landlord to exercise the same rights and remedies as
if Tenant had defaulted in the payment of the rents reserved hereunder.

       F. (a) For the purposes of this Section, Landlord's rights under
Section 16(b) of this lease to recover from Tenant as and for liquidated
damages an amount equal to the difference between the rent reserved
hereunder for the unexpired portion of the term demised and the fair and
reasonable rental value of the demised premises is hereinafter referred to
as the "ACCELERATION REMEDY." In case of any default (after the giving of
any required notice and after the expiration of any applicable cure
period), re-entry, expiration and/or dispossess by summary proceedings or
otherwise as described in Article 17 of this lease, in lieu of the
deficiency damages described in Article 18 of this lease, Landlord may
avail itself of the Acceleration Remedy.

              (b) For the purposes of Section 16(b) of this lease, the term
"rent reserved hereunder for the unexpired portion of the term demised"
shall mean the aggregate of the fixed rent and the additional rent payable
hereunder which would have been payable by Tenant (conclusively presuming
the additional rent to be the same as was payable for the year immediately
preceding such termination) for the period commencing with the termination
of this lease pursuant to Articles 16 or 17 above, as the case may be, or
the date of any re-entry provided for in Article 17 above, as the case may
be, and ending with the Expiration Date, had this lease not so terminated
or had Landlord not so re-entered the demised premises.

              (c) Nothing contained in this lease shall be construed to
limit or preclude recovery by Landlord against Tenant of any sums or
damages to which, in addition to the damages particularly provided in this,
Landlord may lawfully be entitled by reason of any default under this lease
on the part of Tenant. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to limit
or prejudice the right of Landlord to prove for and obtain as liquidated
damages by reason of the termination of this lease or re-entry on the
demised premises for the default of Tenant under this lease, an amount
equal to the maximum allowed by any statute or rule of law in effect at the
time when, and governing the proceedings in which, such damages are to be
proved whether or not such amount be greater, equal to, or less than any of
the sums referred to in Section Articles 16 or 18 above.

52.    SECURITY DEPOSIT:   

       A. Tenant has deposited with Landlord the sum of $1,509,522.00,
either in cash or by Letter of Credit as provided in Section C hereof, as
security for the faithful performance, observance and compliance with all
of the terms, covenants and conditions of this lease on Tenant's part to
perform, observe or comply with. Tenant agrees that, in the event that
Tenant defaults (after the giving of any required notice and the expiration
of any applicable cure period) under any of the terms, covenants or
conditions in this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply
with (including, without limitation, the payment of any installment of
fixed rent or any amount of additional rent), Landlord may use, apply, or
retain the whole or any part of the cash security so deposited or may
notify the Issuing Bank (as such term is defined in Section C hereof) and
thereupon receive all of the monies represented by the said Letter of
Credit and use, apply, or retain the whole or any part of such proceeds, or
both, as the case may be, to the extent required for the payment of any
fixed rent, additional rent, or any other sums as to which Tenant is in
default, or for any sum that Landlord may expend or may be required to
expend by reason of any such default (including any damages or deficiency
accrued before or after summary proceedings or other re-entry by Landlord).
In the event that Landlord applies or retains any portion or all of such
cash security or proceeds of such Letter of Credit, or both, as the case
may be, the amount not so used or applied shall continue to be treated as
Tenant's security deposit, and Tenant shall restore the amount so applied
or retained within five (5) business days after Landlord's demand therefor,
so that, at all times, the amount deposited shall be $1,509,522.00 as such
amount may be reduced pursuant to Sections G and H below, or Section 48K
above. In the event that Tenant shall fully and faithfully comply with all
of the terms, provisions, covenants and conditions of this lease, that
portion, if any, of the cash security or Letter of Credit, or both, as the
case may be, not used or applied shall be returned to Tenant within thirty
(30) days after the Expiration Date and after delivery of possession of the
entire demised premises to Landlord, in accordance with, and subject to,
the applicable provisions of this lease.

       B. To the extent Tenant has deposited with Landlord a cash security,
Landlord agrees to deposit same into an interest bearing account in a bank
or savings and loan association to be selected, from time to time, by
Landlord in its sole discretion. Landlord agrees, further to hold said
security in such an account for the entire term of this lease, subject,
however, to the terms of Section A above with respect to the use or
application of such security. To the extent permitted by law, Tenant agrees
that Landlord shall be entitled to receive and retain, as an administrative
expense, a sum equal to one (1%) percent per annum upon such security, and
Landlord shall have the right to withdraw such sum from time to time as
Landlord shall determine in is sole discretion. The balance of the interest
earned on such security shall, provided Tenant is not then in default under
this lease, and to the extent that same shall not be used or applied
pursuant to the terms of Section A above, be paid to Tenant upon the
request of Tenant, but not more than once during any calendar year of the
term of this lease. Unless and until such interest shall be paid to
Landlord and Tenant as herein provided, the same shall be held as a part of
the security deposited by Tenant, subject to, and in accordance with, the
terms of Section A above. Landlord shall not be required to credit any
security with the interest for any period during which Landlord does not
receive interest thereon.

       C. In lieu of a cash deposit, Tenant may deliver to Landlord as such
security, a clean, irrevocable and unconditional Letter of Credit issued by
and drawn upon a commercial bank (hereinafter referred to as the "ISSUING
BANK") with offices for banking purposes in the City of New York and
approved by Landlord, which Letter of Credit shall have a term of not less
than one year, be in form and content satisfactory to Landlord, be for the
account of Landlord and be in the amount of $1,509,522.00. The Letter of
Credit shall provide that:

              (a) The Issuing Bank shall pay to Landlord or its duly
              authorized representative an amount up to the face amount of
              the Letter of Credit upon presentation of only the Letter of
              Credit and a sight draft in the amount to be drawn;

              (b) The Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be automatically
              renewed, without amendment, for consecutive periods of one
              year each, unless the Issuing Bank sends written notice
              (hereinafter called the "NON-RENEWAL NOTICE") to Landlord by
              certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, not
              less than thirty (30) days next preceding the then expiration
              date of the Letter of Credit, that it elects not to have such
              Letter of Credit renewed;

              (c) Landlord, after its receipt of the Non-Renewal Notice,
              shall have the right, exercisable by a sight draft only, to
              receive the moneys represented by the Letter of Credit (which
              moneys shall be held by Landlord as a cash deposit pursuant
              to the terms of this Article pending the replacement of such
              Letter of Credit) (and Landlord shall have such right
              regardless of whether the Letter of Credit expressly gives
              Landlord such right); and

              (d) In the event of a sale or the transfer of the land or the
              Building, or Landlord's interest in any of the foregoing, or
              a leasing by Landlord or any of the foregoing or Landlord's
              interest therein, the Letter of Credit shall be transferable
              by Landlord as provided in Section D below, at no cost or
              expense to Landlord.

       D. In the event of a sale or transfer of the land or the Building,
or the then Landlord's interest in the land or the Building, or a leasing
by the then Landlord of the land or the Building or of Landlord's interest
therein, Landlord shall, at no cost or expense to Landlord, transfer or
assign such cash security or Letter of Credit, or both, as the case may be,
to the vendee, transferee or lessee, and Landlord shall notify Tenant, by
certified mail, return receipt requested, of such sale, transfer or lease,
together with the name and address of such vendee, transferee or lessee,
and Landlord shall thereupon be released by Tenant from all liability for
the return of such cash security or Letter of Credit. In such event, Tenant
agrees to look solely to the new landlord for the return of said cash
security or Letter of Credit. It is agreed that the provisions hereof shall
apply to every transfer or assignment made of said cash security or Letter
of Credit to a new Landlord.

       E. Tenant covenants that it will not assign or encumber, or attempt
to assign or encumber, such cash security or Letter of Credit, and that
neither Landlord nor its successors or assigns shall be bound by any such
assignment, encumbrance, attempted assignment, or attempted encumbrance.

       F. In the event that at any time during the term of this lease
Landlord, in Landlord's reasonable opinion, believes that circumstances
have occurred indicating that the Issuing Bank may be incapable of, unable
to, or prohibited from honoring the then existing Letter of Credit
(hereinafter referred to as the "EXISTING L/C") in accordance with the
terms thereof, then, upon the happening of either of the foregoing,
Landlord may send written notice to Tenant (hereinafter referred to as the
"REPLACEMENT NOTICE") requiring Tenant within thirty (30) days to replace
the Existing L/C with a new letter of credit (hereinafter referred to as
the "REPLACEMENT L/C") from an Issuing Bank meeting the qualifications
described in Section C. Upon receipt of a Replacement L/C meeting the
qualifications of Section C, Landlord shall forthwith return the Existing
L/C to Tenant. In the event that (a) a Replacement L/C meeting the
qualifications of Section C is not received by Landlord within the time
specified or (b) Landlord reasonably believes an emergency exists, then in
either event, the Existing L/C may be presented for payment by Landlord and
the proceeds thereof shall be held by Landlord in accordance with Sections
A and B subject, however, to Tenant's right, at any time thereafter prior
to a Tenant's default hereunder, to replace such cash security with a new
letter of credit meeting the qualifications of Section C.

       G. If during the three (3) year period (the "FIRST SECURITY DEPOSIT
PERIOD") commencing on the Rent Commencement Date, (a) this lease remains
in full force and effect, and (b) Tenant is not in default in its
obligation to pay any fixed rent or additional rent or to observe, perform
or comply with any other term, covenant or condition in this lease on
Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply with, then Tenant may, at any
time thereafter, request Landlord to reduce the amount of the security
deposit being held by Landlord under this Article to $1,000,000.00, in
which event, provided that at the time of such request this lease is in
full force and effect and the conditions in clause (b) above have been
satisfied, and the amount of security then being held by Landlord under
this Article is at least $1,509,522.00, Landlord shall either return to
Tenant from the security deposit being held by Landlord under this Article
the difference between the amount of security deposit being so held by
Landlord and $1,000,000.00, or, if such security is in the form of a Letter
of Credit, Landlord shall consent in writing to, and, at no cost to
Landlord, (A) accept from the Issuing Bank, an amendment to the Letter of
Credit which reduces the amount thereof to $1,000,000.00 but which does not
otherwise amend or modify same, and (B) if requested by the Issuing Bank,
execute and deliver to the Issuing Bank such instruments required by the
Issuing Bank to effectuate such reduction.

       H. If during the three (3) year period (the "SECOND SECURITY DEPOSIT
PERIOD") commencing on the date immediately following the First Security
Deposit Period, (a) this lease remains in full force and effect, and (b)
Tenant is not in default in its obligation to pay any fixed rent or
additional rent or to observe, perform or comply with any other term,
covenant or condition in this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or
comply with, then Tenant may, at any time thereafter, request Landlord to
reduce further the amount of the security deposit being held by Landlord
under this Article to $500,000.00, in which event, provided that at the
time of such request this lease is in full force and effect and the
conditions in clause (b) above have been satisfied, and the amount of
security then being held by Landlord under this Article is at least
$1,000,000.00, Landlord shall either return to Tenant from the security
deposit being held by Landlord under this Article the difference between
the amount of security deposit being so held by Landlord and $500,000.00,
or, if such security is in the form of a Letter of Credit, Landlord shall
consent in writing to, and, at no cost to Landlord, (A) accept from the
Issuing Bank, an amendment to the Letter of Credit which reduces the amount
thereof to $500,000.00 but which does not otherwise amend or modify same,
and (B) if requested by the Issuing Bank, execute and deliver to the
Issuing Bank such instruments required by the Issuing Bank to effectuate
such reduction.

       I.     Tenant's federal employer identification number is: __________.

53.    ARBITRATION:   

       A. Either party may request arbitration of any matter in dispute
with respect to which arbitration is expressly provided in this lease as
the appropriate remedy. The party requesting arbitration shall do so by
giving notice to that effect to the other party, and both parties shall
promptly thereafter jointly apply to the American Arbitration Association
(or any organization successor thereto) in the City and County of New York
for the appointment of a single arbitrator.

       B. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the then
prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association (or any
organization successor thereto) in the City and County of New York and,
subject to the terms of the immediately succeeding sentence, judgment on
the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having
jurisdiction thereof. In rendering such decision and award, the arbitrator
shall not add to, subtract from, or otherwise modify the provisions of this
lease.

       C. If, for any reason whatsoever, a written decision and award of
the arbitrator shall not be rendered within sixty (60) days after the
appointment of such arbitrator, then, at any time thereafter before such
decision and award shall have been rendered, either party may apply to the
Supreme Court of the State of New York or to any other court having
jurisdiction and exercising the functions similar to those now exercised by
such court, by action, proceeding, or otherwise (but not by a new
arbitration proceeding) as may be proper to determine the question in
dispute consistently with the provisions of this lease.

       D. All the expenses of the arbitration shall be borne by the parties
equally.

54. ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES: Each party agrees, at any time and from time to
time, as requested by the other party, upon not less than ten (10) days'
prior notice, to execute and deliver to the other a statement (i)
certifying that this lease is unmodified and in full force and effect (or,
if there have been modifications, that the same is in full force and effect
as modified and stating the modifications) and whether any options granted
to Tenant pursuant to the provisions of this lease have been exercised,
(ii) certifying the dates to which the fixed rent and additional rent have
been paid and the amounts thereof, (iii) stating whether or not, to the
best knowledge of the signer, the other party is in default in performance
of any of its obligations under this lease, or if Tenant is the certifying
party, whether Tenant is in default, and, if so, specifying each such
default of which the signer may have knowledge, (iv) stating whether Tenant
has any rights to offsets or abatement of rent, (v) stating whether Tenant
has prepaid any rent for more than one month in advance, and (vi)
certifying such other reasonable information as the requesting party
reasonably requests, it being intended that any such statement delivered
pursuant hereto may be relied upon by others with whom the party requesting
such certificate may be dealing and their respective successors and/or
assigns. Breach of the foregoing will constitute Tenant's acknowledgement
which may be relied on by any person holding or proposing to acquire an
interest in the Building, this Lease or any superior mortgage, that this
Lease is unmodified and in full force and effect and will constitute, as to
any such person, a waiver of any defaults on Landlord's part which may
exist prior to the date of such request. The foregoing shall not limit any
other rights and remedies available to Landlord for breach of this Article.

55.    BROKER:   

       A. Tenant covenants, warrants and represents that it had no
conversations or other communications with any broker or finder except
Colliers ABR, Inc. and Newmark & Company Real Estate, Inc. (collectively,
the "BROKER") in connection with the leasing of the demised premises to
Tenant and that, to Tenant's best knowledge, there were no brokers or
finders except the Broker instrumental in consummating this lease. Tenant
agrees to hold Landlord harmless against any claims for a brokerage
commission or consultation fees arising out of any conversations or
negotiations had by Tenant with any brokers or finders except for the
Broker.

       B. Based upon the foregoing representation, Landlord has agreed to
pay, pursuant to separate agreement, a brokerage commission to the Broker.

       C. Landlord covenants, warrants and represents that it had no
conversations or other communications with any broker or finder (except the
Broker) in connection with the leasing of the demised premises to Tenant
and that, to Landlord's best knowledge, there were no brokers or finders
except the Broker instrumental in consummating this lease. Landlord agrees
to hold Tenant harmless against any claims for a brokerage commission or
consultation fees arising out of any conversations or negotiations had by
Landlord with any brokers or finders, including the Broker.

56.    HOLDING OVER

       Tenant acknowledges that possession of the demised premises must be
surrendered to Landlord at the expiration or sooner termination of the term
of this lease. Tenant agrees to indemnify and save Landlord harmless
against all liabilities, costs, suits, demands, charges, and expenses of
any kind or nature, including attorneys' fees and disbursements, resulting
from a delay by Tenant in so surrendering the demised premises, including,
without limitation, any claims made by any succeeding tenant founded on
such delay. The parties recognize and agree that the damage to Landlord
resulting from any failure by Tenant to timely surrender possession of the
demised premises as aforesaid will be extremely substantial, will exceed
the amount of fixed rent and additional rent theretofore payable hereunder
and will be impossible of accurate measurement. Tenant, therefore, agrees
that if possession of the demised premises is not surrendered to Landlord
within twenty-four (24) hours after the date of the expiration or sooner
termination of the term of this lease, then Tenant shall pay to Landlord,
as liquidated damages, a sum equal to two (2) times the per diem fixed rent
and additional rent which was payable during the calendar month preceding
the calendar month in which the term ended for each day Tenant holds over
and fails to deliver possession of the demised premises; if Tenant has
entered into a lease for new space and the landlord of such space has
failed to provide such space to Tenant. Nothing herein contained shall be
deemed to permit Tenant to retain possession of the demised premises after
the expiration or sooner termination of the term of this lease. Landlord,
by availing itself of the rights and privileges granted by this provision
and the acceptance of the liquidated damages, shall not be deemed to have
waived any of its rights and privileges granted in other provisions of this
lease, and the rights granted in this Article shall be considered in any
event as in addition to and not in exclusion of such other rights and
privileges; provided that if Tenant has executed a lease for new space
containing a commencement date no later than the day after the Expiration
Date and failure of Tenant to vacate the demised premises is that the space
covered by such new lease is unavailable for Tenant's occupancy on the
projected commencement date of the new lease, then Landlord hereby waives
and agrees not to enforce any such additional rights (including, without
limitation, the right to receive consequential or incidental damages) if
Tenant uses its best efforts to enforce the obligation of Tenant's new
landlord to make Tenant's new space available for Tenant's occupancy and
Tenant in fact does vacate the demised premises within thirty (30) days
after the space caused by such new lease becomes available for Tenant's
occupancy. The aforesaid provisions of this Article shall survive the
expiration or sooner termination of the term of this lease.

57.    NOTICES:

58.    THE LOWER MANHATTAN PLAN:

       A. For purposes of this Article 58, unless otherwise defined in this
Lease, all terms used herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in
Title 4 of Article 4 of the New York Real Property Tax Law (herein called
the "LOWER MANHATTAN PLAN"). For purposes of the Lower Manhattan Plan,
Tenant's Percentage Share shall mean Tenant's Proportionate Share (i.e.,
7.508%).

       B. For so long as Tenant continues to be eligible for the real
estate tax abatement benefits of the Lower Manhattan Plan (herein called
the "LMP ABATEMENT BENEFITS") with respect to the demised premises,
Landlord agrees to comply with the provisions and requirements of the Lower
Manhattan Plan and the rules promulgated thereunder as same relate to the
demised premises and to Landlord (in connection with Tenant's eligibility
for the LMP Abatement Benefits), provided, however, that Tenant shall
promptly pay to Landlord, as additional rent hereunder, the amount of all
costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses)
incurred by Landlord in connection with such compliance, including, without
limitation, the amount of any administrative charges or fees imposed by the
New York City Department of Finance (herein called the "DEPARTMENT") in
connection with such compliance.

       C. Tenant agrees to comply with the provisions and requirements of
the Lower Manhattan Plan and the rules promulgated thereunder as same
relate to the demised premises; and Tenant shall indemnify and hold
harmless Landlord and all lessors under any superior leases and holders of
any superior mortgages and its and their respective partners, directors,
officers, principals, shareholders, agents and employees from and against
any and all claims arising from or in connection with Tenant's failure to
so comply, together with all costs, expenses and liabilities incurred in
connection with each such claim or action or proceeding brought thereon,
including, without limitation, all reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses.

       D. (i) In accordance with the Lower Manhattan Plan and
notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, Landlord
agrees to allow Tenant a credit against the fixed annual rent and the
recurring additional rent (including Tenant's Tax Payments) payable by
Tenant hereunder in an amount that, in the aggregate, equals the full
amount of any abatement of real estate taxes granted for the demised
premises pursuant to the Lower Manhattan Plan and actually received by
Landlord (herein called the "ACTUAL LMP BENEFITS"). Landlord shall, within
thirty (30) days after its receipt of the Actual LMP Benefits, credit the
full amount thereof against the next installments) of fixed annual rent
and/or additional rent becoming due hereunder.

       (ii) Tenant shall promptly pay to Landlord, as additional rent
hereunder, the amount of all or any portion of the Actual LMP Benefits that
have been credited against fixed annual rent and/or additional rent
becoming due hereunder, and which are thereafter revoked (including,
without limitation, if such Actual LMP Benefits are revoked due to the
exercise by Tenant of its right to assign or sublease pursuant to the terms
of this Lease), together with any interest and/or penalties imposed against
Landlord in connection with such Actual LMP Benefits.

       E. In accordance with Section 499-C(5) of the Lower Manhattan Plan,
Landlord agrees and informs Tenant that the availability of the LMP
Abatement Benefits are subject to the following:

       (i)    an application for abatement of real property taxes pursuant
              to Title 4 of Article 4 of the New York Real Property Tax Law
              will be made for the demised premises;

       (ii)   the rent, including amounts payable by Tenant for real
              property taxes, will accurately reflect any abatement of real
              property taxes granted pursuant to Title 4 of Article 4 of
              the New York Real Property Tax Law for the demised premises;

       (iii)  at least thirty-five dollars ($35.00) per square foot must be
              spent on improvements to the demised premises and the common
              areas of the Building; and

       (iv)   all abatements granted with respect to the Building pursuant
              to Title 4 of Article 4 of the New York Real Property Tax Law
              will be revoked if, during the Benefit Period, real estate
              taxes or water or sewer charges or other lienable charges are
              unpaid for more than one year, unless such delinquent amounts
              are paid as provided in subdivision four of section four
              hundred ninety-nine-f of Title 4 of the New York Real
              Property Tax Law.

       F. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to impose any
obligation on Landlord to perform, or to incur any cost for, any
improvements to the demised premises and/or the common areas to establish
Tenant's eligibility for the LMP Abatement Benefits.

       G. (i) Landlord, upon not less than ten (10) business days advance
written notice from Tenant, agrees to cooperate with Tenant to execute,
deliver and file, together with the Abatement Application (as hereinafter
defined), the affidavit required by Section 499C(7) of the Lower Manhattan
Plan.

       (ii) Landlord, upon not less than ten (10) business days advance
written notice from Tenant, agrees to cooperate with Tenant to execute,
deliver and file, within one hundred eighty (180) days after the
Commencement Date, an application (the "ABATEMENT APPLICATION") for a
certificate of abatement in accordance with Section 499-D of the Lower
Manhattan Plan. Landlord further agrees to provide all other information
required by the Department pursuant to Section 499-D of the Lower Manhattan
Plan and to otherwise comply with the provisions of said Section 499-D.

       (iii) For so long as Tenant continues to be eligible for the LMP
Abatement Benefits with respect to the demised premises, Landlord, upon not
less than ten (10) business days advance written notice from Tenant, agrees
to cooperate with Tenant to annually execute, deliver and file a
certificate of continuing eligibility in accordance with Section 499-F of
the Lower Manhattan Plan, and any other certificates or filings required by
the Lower Manhattan Plan.

       (iv) Tenant shall promptly pay to Landlord, as additional rent
hereunder, the amount of all costs and expenses (including reasonable
attorneys' fees and expenses) incurred by Landlord in connection with the
performance of Landlord's obligations pursuant to this Section 58,
including, without limitation, the amount of any administrative charges or
fees imposed by the Department in connection with such compliance.

       H. In the event that Landlord shall default in the performance or
observance of any of the covenants, terms, provisions or conditions on its
part to be performed or observed under this Article 58, this lease shall
remain unaffected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect, and
Landlord's liability for such default, if any, shall be limited to the
payment of damages which shall in no event exceed the aggregate amount of
the LMP Abatement Benefits with respect to the demised premises to which
Tenant would have been entitled but for such default.

       I.     The rent  commencement  date for purposes of the Lower  Manhattan
Plan is the Rent Commencement Date.

       J. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article 58, Landlord
makes no representation or warranty as to the amount, if any, of Actual LMP
Benefits that will be received by Landlord.

59.    ADDITIONAL SPACE OPTION

       A. (a) Tenant acknowledges that the entire rentable area of the 16th
floor of the Building is presently leased to other tenants. Attached hereto
as EXHIBIT F-1 is a list of the existing leases (collectively, the "16TH
FLOOR LEASES") covering the entire rentable area of the 16th floor of the
Building (the entire rentable area of the 16th floor of the Building being
hereinafter referred to as the "16TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE"), together
with the dates of expiration of each 16th Floor Lease (each a "16TH FLOOR
LEASE EXPIRATION DATE"), a floor plan of each portion of the 16th Floor
Additional Space covered by a 16th Floor Lease, the percentage of the total
rentable area of the Building that each such portion represents (each a
"16TH FLOOR PERCENTAGE"), and, for the purposes of determining the 16th
Floor Additional Space Construction Payment and the Additional Space Fixed
Rent (as such terms are hereinafter defined) for the 16th Floor Additional
Space, a "Payment Factor" for each portion of the 16th Floor Additional
Space covered by a 16th Floor Lease. Tenant shall have the one-time option
(the "16TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE OPTION") to lease from Landlord the
entire 16th Floor Additional Space (as opposed to leasing only portions
thereof), for the periods commencing on the date (each a "16TH FLOOR
ADDITIONAL SPACE COMMENCEMENT DATE") immediately following each 16th Floor
Lease Expiration Date, and expiring on the Expiration Date, which 16th
Floor Additional Space Option shall be exercised only by Tenant giving to
Landlord notice thereof (the "16TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICE")
on or before July 31, 2002 (the "16TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE
NOTICE DATE"), TIME BEING OF THE ESSENCE, subject to the provisions of this
Article. Landlord acknowledges that certain space on the 16th Floor
consisting of 2,939 rentable square feet is currently vacant. Landlord
agrees that until the option on the 16th Floor Additional Space is waived
or expires in accordance with this Article 59 Landlord will not execute a
lease for such space with an expiration date later than November 30, 2003.
In addition, Landlord acknowledges that certain space leased to Wagner
Stott Mercator ("WSM") expires on March 31, 2000. If Tenant desires to
exercise the option to lease the space leased to WSM, the 16th Floor
Additional Space Exercise Notice Date shall be October 1, 1999 with respect
to such space only and Tenant shall have the right to exercise a 16th Floor
Additional Space Option with respect to such space only without the
obligation of exercising the 16th Floor Additional Space Option for the
remainder of the 16th Floor; provided that for the remainder of the 16th
Floor Additional Space the 16th Floor Additional Space Option shall be as
otherwise set forth in this paragraph.

              (b) Tenant acknowledges that a portion of the rentable area
of the 12th floor of the Building (substantially where shown in hatching on
the floor plan attached to this lease as EXHIBIT F-2, which by this
reference is made a part hereof) is presently leased to The Nippon
Management Corp. and Nippon Fire International (USA) Inc. (collectively,
"NIPPON") pursuant to a lease (the "NIPPON LEASE") which is fixed to expire
on August 31, 2000. (Such portion of the 12th floor of the Building is
hereinafter referred to as the "NIPPON ADDITIONAL SPACE.") Nippon has the
option pursuant to the terms of the Nippon Lease to extend the term of the
Nippon Lease beyond August 31, 2000. No later than September 30, 1999
Landlord shall notify Tenant whether or not Nippon has exercised such
extension option. If Nippon exercises such extension option, then Tenant
shall have no right or option to lease any portion of the Nippon Additional
Space. If Landlord notifies Tenant that Nippon has not exercised such
extension option, then Tenant shall have the one-time option (the "NIPPON
ADDITIONAL SPACE OPTION") to lease from Landlord the entire Nippon
Additional Space (as opposed to leasing only portions thereof), for the
period commencing on September 1, 2000 (the "NIPPON ADDITIONAL SPACE
COMMENCEMENT DATE"), and expiring on the Expiration Date, which Nippon
Additional Space Option shall be exercised only by Tenant giving to
Landlord notice thereof (the "NIPPON ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICE") on
or before January 15, 2000 (the "NIPPON ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICE
Date"), TIME BEING OF THE ESSENCE, subject to the provisions of this
Article.

              (c) Tenant acknowledges that the entire rentable area of the
17th floor of the Building is presently leased to other tenants. Attached
hereto as EXHIBIT F-3 is a list of the existing leases (collectively, the
"17TH FLOOR LEASES") covering the entire rentable area of the 17th floor of
the Building (each portion of the rentable area of the 17th floor of the
Building covered by a 17th Floor Lease being hereinafter referred to as
"17TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE"), together with the dates of expiration of
each 17th Floor Lease (each a "17TH FLOOR LEASE EXPIRATION DATE"), a floor
plan of each 17th Floor Additional Space, the percentage of the total
rentable area of the Building that each 17th Floor Additional Space
represents (each a "17TH FLOOR PERCENTAGE"), and, for the purposes of
determining the Additional Space Fixed Rent for all of the 17th Floor
Additional Space, a "Payment Factor" for each 17th Floor Additional Space.
Provided that Tenant has exercised the 16th Floor Additional Space Option
as to the entire rentable area of the 16th Floor in accordance with all of
the applicable provisions of this Article and has exercised the Extension
Option (as such term is hereinafter defined) in accordance with all of the
applicable provisions of Article 60 below, Tenant shall have the one-time
option (each a "17TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE OPTION") to lease from Landlord
each 17th Floor Additional Space, in its respective entirety (as opposed to
leasing only portions thereof), for the periods commencing on the date
(each a "17TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE COMMENCEMENT Date") immediately
following each 17th Floor Lease Expiration Date, and expiring on the
Expiration Date, which 17th Floor Additional Space Options shall be
exercised only by Tenant giving to Landlord notice thereof (each a "17TH
FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICE") on or before the date (each a
"17TH FLOOR ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICE DATE"), which is one (1) year
prior to the corresponding 17th Floor Lease Expiration Date, TIME BEING OF
THE ESSENCE, subject to the provisions of this Article. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, in the event that H.G. Wellington does not exercise its
extension option for its space, and such lease expires on December 31,
2000, with respect to such space only the 17th Floor Additional Space
Exercise Notice Date shall be six (6) months prior to the 17th Floor Lease
Expiration Date for such space, and Tenant shall have the right to exercise
its 17th Floor Additional Space Option with respect to such space only at
such time without the obligation of first exercising the Extension Option.

              (d) The 16th Floor Additional Space, the Nippon Additional
Space and all of the 17th Floor Additional Space are sometimes referred to
hereinafter collectively as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE"; the 16th Floor
Additional Space Option, the Nippon Additional Space Option and all 17th
Floor Additional Space Options are sometimes referred to hereinafter
collectively as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE OPTIONS"; the 16th Floor Additional
Space Exercise Notice, the Nippon Additional Space Exercise Notice and the
17th Floor Additional Space Exercise Notices are sometimes referred to
hereinafter collectively as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICES"; the
16th Floor Additional Space Exercise Notice Date, the Nippon Additional
Space Exercise Notice Date and all of the 17th Floor Additional Space
Exercise Notice Dates are sometimes referred to hereinafter collectively as
the "ADDITIONAL SPACE EXERCISE NOTICE DATES"; the 16th Floor Additional
Space Commencement Dates, the Nippon Additional Space Commencement Date and
the 17th Floor Additional Space Commencement Dates are sometimes referred
to hereinafter collectively as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE COMMENCEMENT DATES";

       B. Notwithstanding anything contained in this lease to the contrary,
Tenant shall not have the Additional Space Option in question if, on the
date Tenant gives to Landlord the corresponding Additional Space Exercise
Notice: (a) this lease is not in full force and effect; or (b) any of the
events described in Article 16 of this lease exist or occurred prior
thereto; or (c) there had been prior thereto a default of any of the terms,
covenants or conditions of this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform
or comply with and a failure to cure such default after the giving of any
required notice and the expiration of any applicable cure period; or (d) if
prior thereto Tenant had been late in making any payment due to Landlord
from Tenant under this lease for ten (10) or more days more than two (2)
times during each applicable preceding twelve (12) month period (or portion
thereof) (after the giving of any required notice and after the expiration
of any applicable cure period) of the term of this lease.

       C. In addition to the provisions of Section B above, and
notwithstanding anything contained in this lease to the contrary, the
Additional Space Options shall be deemed revoked, null and void, and of no
further force or effect, and the corresponding Additional Space Exercise
Notice (or purported Additional Space Exercise Notice) given in connection
with Tenant's attempt to exercise the Additional Space Options shall be
ineffective and void ab initio as an Additional Space Exercise Notice: (a)
if Tenant fails to give the Additional Space Exercise Notice to Landlord on
or before the corresponding Additional Space Exercise Notice Date (TIME
BEING OF THE ESSENCE) in the manner hereinbefore provided; or (b) if the
notice given to Landlord amends, modifies or supplements (or attempts or
purports to amend, modify or supplement) any of the Additional Space Terms
(as hereinafter defined); or (c) if at the time of the giving of the
Additional Space Exercise Notice, this lease is not in full force and
effect, Tenant is in default of any of the terms, covenants or conditions
of this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply with (after
the giving of any required notice and after the expiration of any
applicable cure period), or there exists any of the events described in
Article 16 of this lease; or (d) if Tenant fails to duly execute,
acknowledge and deliver to Landlord the corresponding Additional Space
Amendment (as hereinafter defined), prepared by Landlord and in the form
and content set forth in Section D below, within thirty (30) business days
after Landlord delivers counterparts of the Additional Space Amendment to
Tenant; or (e) if on the Additional Space Commencement Date, this lease is
not in full force and effect, Tenant is in default of any of the terms,
covenants or conditions of this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform
or comply with (after any required notice and the expiration of any
applicable cure period), or there exists any of the events described in
Article 16 above. (For the purposes of this Article, "ADDITIONAL SPACE
TERMS" shall mean the terms and conditions set forth in each Additional
Space Amendment.)

       D. If Tenant gives an Additional Space Exercise Notice to Landlord
on or before the corresponding Additional Space Exercise Notice Date, TIME
BEING OF THE ESSENCE, and in the manner set forth in Section A above,
Landlord and Tenant shall enter into an amendment of this lease prepared by
Landlord (such amendment being herein referred to as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE
AMENDMENT"), which shall, effective from and after the Additional Space
Commencement Date in question, add the Additional Space in question to the
premises then demised under this lease upon all of the same terms,
covenants and conditions of this lease, except that:

              (a) Effective from and after the Additional Space
Commencement Date in question, the terms "demised premises," "Demised
Premises" and "premises," as such terms are used in this lease, shall mean,
collectively, the premises then demised under this lease and the Additional
Space in question and the floor plan set forth on EXHIBIT A hereto shall be
amended by adding thereto the floor plan of the Additional Space attached
to this lease as part of EXHIBIT F-1, EXHIBIT F-2 OR EXHIBIT F-3, as the
case may be;

              (b) Effective from and after the Additional Space
Commencement Date in question, the fixed rent payable by Tenant pursuant to
Section 38B of this lease shall be increased by the Additional Space Fixed
Rent (as hereinafter defined); and

              (c) Effective from and after each Additional Space
Commencement Date, subsections 39A(d) and 39F(e) of this lease shall be
amended by increasing the "TENANT'S PROPORTIONATE SHARE" and the "TENANT'S
OPERATIONAL PROPORTIONATE SHARE" by 1.11%, in the case of the Nippon
Additional Space, or by the applicable 16th Floor Percentage or 17th Floor
Percentage, as the case may be.

              (d) Tenant shall accept the Additional Space in question on
the applicable Additional Space Commencement Date in its then "as-is"
condition. Tenant acknowledges that neither Landlord, nor Landlord's agent,
has made, or will be deemed to have made, any representations or promises
in regard to any Additional Space. All installations, materials and work
which may be required or desired by Tenant to equip, decorate and furnish
the Additional Space in question for Tenant's occupancy thereof
(hereinafter referred to as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE TENANT'S WORK"), shall be
performed by Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and expense as a Change, in
accordance with the terms, covenants and conditions set forth in this
lease, except that on account of the 16th Floor Additional Space and the
Nippon Space only Landlord agrees to pay to Tenant, in accordance with, and
subject to, the provisions of subsections 41B(b), (c), (d), (e) and (f)
above, an amount (each an "ADDITIONAL SPACE CONSTRUCTION PAYMENT") equal to
(i) $10.00, multiplied by the corresponding "Payment Factor" set forth on
EXHIBIT F-1 hereto for each portion of the 16th Floor Additional Space in
respect of which a 16th Floor Additional Space Commencement Date has
occurred and (ii) $102,330.00 with respect to the Nippon Space provided the
Nippon Commencement Date has occurred, provided that at the time Landlord
is otherwise obligated to make any Additional Space Construction Payments
or any portion thereof, Tenant is not in breach or default of any of the
terms, covenants and conditions of this lease on Tenant's part to observe,
perform or comply with (after the giving of any required notice and after
the expiration of any applicable cure period). For the purposes of applying
subsections 41B(b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) above to the Additional Space
Construction Payments, the terms "Construction Payment" and "Tenant's
Work," as used in said subsections, shall be deemed references,
respectively, to the applicable Additional Space Construction Payment and
the Additional Space Tenant's Work in the 16th Floor Additional Space, the
Nippon Space or the 17th Floor Additional Space, as applicable, and the
references in said subsections to $2,424,555.00, shall be deemed references
to the amount determined pursuant to clauses (i) and (ii) above. Landlord
agrees that it shall not unreasonably withhold or delay its consent to (A)
any Additional Space Tenant's Work that will put the Additional Space in
question substantially in the condition that the premises initially demised
to Tenant under this lease will be in upon completion of Tenant's Work, or
(B) with respect to the 16th Floor Additional Space, (provided Tenant has
leased the entire rentable area of the 16th Floor as opposed to just the
space currently leased to WSM) to the construction of a staircase between
the 15th and 16th floors, and with respect to the 17th Floor Additional
Space, to the construction of a staircase between the 16th and 17th floors,
each staircase at a location mutually agreeable to Landlord and Tenant and
subject to Landlord's approval of plans and specifications therefor in
accordance with the provisions of Section 42E; provided that Tenant shall,
upon Landlord's request, remove such staircases prior to the expiration or
sooner termination of this lease, at Tenant's expense, and shall repair and
restore the demised premises to the condition existing prior to such
installation, and with respect to the 17th Floor Additional Space, provided
that Tenant has leased the entire 17th floor.

              (e) If Landlord is unable to give possession of any
Additional Space on the Additional Space Commencement Date in question
because of the holding-over or retention of possession of any tenant,
undertenant or occupants, or for any other reason, Landlord shall not be
subject to any liability for failure to give such possession, and the
validity of this lease or the Additional Space Amendment in question shall
not be impaired under such circumstances, nor shall the same be construed
in any wise to extend the term of this lease, but (provided Tenant is not
responsible for Landlord's inability to give such possession), the
Additional Space Commencement Date in question shall be extended by the
number of days that such possession of the Additional Space is so delayed.
The provisions of this subsection are intended to constitute "an express
provision to the contrary" within the meaning of Section 223-a of the New
York Real Property Law; and

              (f) Article 41 of this lease shall not apply to any of the
Additional Space.

       E. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article to the
contrary, the Additional Space Options shall apply only to, and may not be
exercised by any person or entity other than, the Tenant expressly named in
this lease, provided the Tenant expressly named herein is the then tenant
under this lease and occupies, on its own behalf, at least seventy-five
(75%) percent of the rentable area of the premises then demised to Tenant
under this lease, which area shall include space occupied by Affiliates or
by subtenants who are subject to subleases with a term of no more than two
(2) years in the aggregate and which subtenants have no right or option to
extend such term.

       F. (a) For the purposes of this Article the Additional Space Fixed
Rent shall mean, for the Nippon Additional Space, $286,524.00 per year
($23,877.00 per month) during the First Rent Period, $296,757.00 per year
($24,729.75 per month) during the Second Rent Period, and $317,223.00 per
year ($26,435.25 per month) during the Third Rent Period; in respect of the
16th Floor Additional Space and each 17th Floor Additional Space, the
greater of (i) (A) $28.00 per year multiplied by the applicable Payment
Factor during the First Rent Period, $29.00 per year multiplied by the
applicable Payment Factor during the Second Rent Period, and $31.00 per
year multiplied by the applicable Payment Factor during the Third Rent
Period, plus (B) (1) the annual Tax Payment and the Operating Payment
payable by Tenant as of the Additional Space Commencement Date in question,
multiplied by (2) the corresponding 16th Floor Percentage or 17th Floor
Percentage (collectively, the "ADDITIONAL SPACE MINIMUM RENT") and (ii) the
fair market rental value of the 16th Floor Additional Space, on a per
rentable square foot basis, multiplied by the corresponding 16th Floor
Percentage or 17th Floor Percentage, to be determined as hereinafter
provided in and to be calculated as of the first 16th Floor Additional
Space Commencement Date on the basis of a new letting of the 16th Floor
Additional Space and each 17th Floor Additional Space for the balance of
the initial term of this lease (but taking into account the fact that the
Base Taxes and the Base Operating Expenses that apply to the original
demised premises also apply to the 16th Floor Additional Space and 17th
Floor Additional Space, and taking into account such other factors as
Landlord and Tenant deem relevant). The amount which equals the fair market
rental value of the 16th Floor Additional Space or any 17th Floor
Additional Space for the balance of the initial term of this lease is
herein referred to as the "ADDITIONAL SPACE FMV AMOUNT."

              (b) The initial determination of the applicable Additional
Space FMV Amount shall be made by Landlord. Landlord shall give notice (an
"ADDITIONAL SPACE RENT NOTICE") to Tenant of the proposed Additional Space
FMV Amount on or before the date which is one (1) month after it receives
the corresponding Additional Space Exercise Notice. The Additional Space
FMV Amount so determined by Landlord shall be deemed conclusive and binding
upon Tenant unless on or before the date (the "ADDITIONAL SPACE
DETERMINATION Date") which is thirty (30) days after Landlord gives to
Tenant the Additional Space Rent Notice (i) Tenant gives to Landlord notice
(the "ADDITIONAL SPACE DISPUTE NOTICE") that Tenant disputes the Additional
Space FMV Amount so determined by Landlord, or (ii) Landlord and Tenant
agree in writing (which agreement (an "ADDITIONAL SPACE FMV AGREEMENT")
shall be duly executed and delivered by Landlord and Tenant) upon the fixed
rent for the Additional Space in question. If Landlord and Tenant fail to
so agree upon the fixed rent for the Additional Space in question, the
Additional Space FMV Amount shall be determined by arbitration pursuant to
subsection (c) below.

              (c) If Tenant gives to Landlord an Additional Space Dispute
Notice in respect of the Additional Space FMV Amount so determined by
Landlord as provided above, and Landlord and Tenant fail to execute and
deliver an Additional Space FMV Agreement on or before the Additional Space
Determination Date in question, then the Additional Space FMV Amount shall
be determined by arbitration as follows:

                     (i)    Landlord and Tenant shall each appoint an
arbitrator by written notice given to the other party hereto not later than
thirty (30) days after the Additional Space Determination Date. If either
Landlord or Tenant fail to appoint an arbitrator within such period of time
and thereafter fail to do so by written notice given within a period of
five (5) days after notice by the other party requesting the appointment of
such arbitrator, then such arbitrator shall be appointed by the AAA or its
successor (the branch office of which is located in or closest to the City
and State of New York), upon request of either Landlord or Tenant, as the
case may be;

                     (ii)   the two (2) arbitrators appointed as above
provided shall designate a third independent arbitrator (the "INDEPENDENT
ARBITRATOR"). Upon the failure of the two to agree upon the Independent
Arbitrator, the Independent Arbitrator shall be appointed as provided in
clause (a) above. Concurrently with the appointment of the Independent
Arbitrator, each of the initial two arbitrators shall submit to the
Independent Arbitrator, with copies to Landlord and Tenant, it's estimate
of the FMV Amount. If the FMV Amount set forth in the submissions by
Landlord's arbitrator and Tenant's arbitrator shall differ by less than
$1.00 per rentable square foot for each year of the renewal term, then the
FMV Amount shall be the average of the FMV Amounts set forth in Landlord's
arbitrator's submission and Tenant's arbitrator's submission. If the FMV
Amount set forth in Landlord's arbitrator's submission and Tenant's
arbitrator's submission shall differ by more than $0.99 per rentable square
foot for each year of the renewal term, averaged over the number of floors
in the demised premises, the Independent Arbitrator shall conduct such
investigations and hearings as he may deem appropriate and shall, within
thirty (30) days after the date of his designation, choose either the FMV
Amount set forth in Landlord's arbitrator's submission or the FMV Amount
set forth in Tenant's arbitrator's submission as the Extension Rent. The
Independent Arbitrator's choice shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant.
Landlord and Tenant shall each pay the fees and expenses of its own
arbitrator. The fees and expenses of the Independent Arbitrator shall be
shared equally and paid by Tenant and Landlord;

                     (iii)  all of such arbitrators shall be M.A.I. or
S.R.P.A. real estate appraisers having not less than ten (l0) years
experience in appraising the value of leasehold interests in real estate
similar to the Building located within the City of New York and whose
appraisals are acceptable to savings banks or life insurance companies
doing business in the State of New York;

                     (iv)   If Tenant gives to Landlord an Additional Space
Dispute Notice in respect of the Additional Space FMV Amount so determined
by Landlord as provided above, and the fixed rent for the Additional Space
in question shall not be finally determined pursuant to the terms of hereof
on or before the Additional Space Commencement Date in question, then (x)
the annual fixed rent payable by Tenant for the Additional Space in
question until the fixed rent for the Additional Space in question shall be
so finally determined shall, subject to adjustment as herein provided, be
equal to the corresponding Additional Space Minimum Rent, and (y) if the
fixed rent for the Additional Space in question, as finally determined
pursuant to the terms hereof, shall be greater than the corresponding
Additional Space Minimum Rent, then (A) the annual fixed rent payable by
Tenant for the balance of the initial term of this lease shall be and
become the fixed rent as so finally determined, and (B) Tenant shall,
within twenty (20) days after Landlord's demand therefor, pay to Landlord
an amount equal to the difference between (1) the sum of the actual fixed
rent payments paid to Landlord from and after the Additional Space
Commencement Date in question before such final determination and (2) the
sum of the fixed rent payments that would have been payable by Tenant if
the fixed rent for the Additional Space in question had been finally
determined prior to the Additional Space Commencement Date in question.

       G. Except as expressly set forth in this Article, Tenant shall not
have any option or right to lease or use the Additional Space or any part
thereof, or any other portion of the Building.

       H. If for any reason, an Additional Space Option is not exercised in
accordance with and subject to, the provisions of this Article, or is
revoked or deemed revoked pursuant to the provisions of this lease,
Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, at any time and from time to
time, lease, license or otherwise permit the use of, all or any portions of
the Additional Space in question.

60.    EXTENSION OPTION:

       A. Tenant shall have the option (the "EXTENSION OPTION") to extend
the term of this lease for a term (the "EXTENSION TERM") of five (5) years
to commence on the day (the "EXTENSION TERM COMMENCEMENT DATE") next
succeeding the Expiration Date and to expire on the day (the "EXTENSION
TERM EXPIRATION DATE") which is the fifth (5th) anniversary of the
Expiration Date, which Extension Option shall be exercised only by Tenant
giving to Landlord notice thereof (the "EXTENSION EXERCISE NOTICE") on or
before the date (the "EXTENSION EXERCISE NOTICE DATE") which is twelve (12)
months prior to the Expiration Date, TIME BEING OF THE ESSENCE.

       B. Notwithstanding anything contained in this lease to the contrary,
Tenant shall not have the Extension Option if on the date Tenant gives to
Landlord the Extension Exercise Notice, (i) this lease is not in full force
and effect, or (ii) there had been prior thereto a default of any of the
terms, covenants or conditions of this lease on Tenant's part to observe,
perform or comply with and a failure to cure such default after the giving
of any required notice and the expiration of any applicable cure period or
(iii) if prior thereto Tenant had been late in making any payment due to
Landlord from Tenant under this lease for ten (10) or more days more than
two (2) times per each preceding twelve (12) month period (or portion
thereof) (after the giving of any required notice and after the expiration
of any applicable cure period) of the term of this lease.

       C. In addition to the provisions of Section A above, and
notwithstanding anything contained in this lease to the contrary, the
Extension Option shall be deemed revoked, null and void, and of no further
force or effect, and the Extension Exercise Notice (or purported Extension
Exercise Notice) given in connection with Tenant's attempt to exercise the
Extension Option shall be ineffective and void ab initio as an Extension
Exercise Notice, (i) if Tenant fails to give the Extension Exercise Notice
to Landlord on or before the Extension Exercise Notice Date (TIME BEING OF
THE ESSENCE) in the manner hereinbefore provided, or (ii) if at the time of
the giving of the Extension Exercise Notice, this lease is not in full
force and effect, Tenant is in default of any of the terms, covenants or
conditions of this lease on Tenant's part to observe, perform or comply
with (after the giving of any required notice and after the expiration of
any applicable cure period), or there exists any of the events described in
Article 16 of this lease, or (iii) if prior to the Extension Term
Commencement Date Tenant has been late in making any payment due to
Landlord from Tenant under this lease for ten (10) or more days more than
two (2) times during the preceding twelve (12) month period (or portion
thereof) (after the giving of any required notice and after the expiration
of any applicable cure period) of the term of this lease. Notwithstanding
anything contained in this lease which may be deemed to the contrary, if
Tenant exercises the Extension Option, but prior to the Extension Term
Commencement Date, this lease or the term hereof has ended, expired or is
not otherwise in full force and effect as a result of any of the events
described in Article 16 of this lease, then, solely for the purposes of
calculating the damages to which Landlord is entitled under Article 18 of
this lease, the term of this lease shall be deemed to have been extended by
the first twelve (12) months of the Extension Term, and the annual
Extension Rent (as hereinafter defined) for the Extension Term shall be
deemed to be the fixed rent in effect on the last day of the initial term
of this lease, without taking into account any abatements thereof under
Section 1.08 hereof or otherwise.

       D. The Extension Term, if any, shall be upon, and subject to, all of
the terms, covenants and conditions provided in this lease for the initial
term hereof (including, without limitation, subsection 39A(c) and 39F(c)),
except that:

              (a) any terms, covenants, or conditions hereof that are
expressly or by their nature inapplicable to the Extension Term (including,
without limitation, Articles 41, 59 and 60 hereof) shall not apply during
the Extension Term; and

              (b) the annual fixed rent payable by Tenant during the
Extension Term (hereinafter referred to as the "EXTENSION RENT") shall,
subject to adjustment as otherwise in this lease provided, be an amount
equal to the greater of (i) the Extension Minimum Rent (as defined in
Section G below), and (ii) the fair market rental value of the demised
premises, to be determined as provided in Sections E and F hereof and to be
calculated as of the Extension Term Commencement Date on the basis of a new
letting of the demised premises for the Extension Term for a term of five
(5) years (but taking into account the fact that the Base Tax Rate and the
Base Year are not changed, that no tenant improvement allowances are being
given and such other factors as Landlord and Tenant deem relevant). The
amount which equals the fair market rental value of the demised premises
for the Extension Term is herein referred to as the "FMV AMOUNT."

       E. The initial determination of the FMV Amount shall be made by
Landlord. Landlord shall give notice (a "RENT NOTICE") to Tenant of the
proposed FMV Amount on or before the date which is six (6) months prior to
the Extension Term Commencement Date. The FMV Amount so determined by
Landlord shall be deemed conclusive and binding upon Tenant unless on or
before the date (the "DETERMINATION DATE") which is ninety (90) days after
Landlord gives to Tenant the Rent Notice (a) Tenant gives to Landlord
notice (the "DISPUTE NOTICE") that Tenant disputes the FMV Amount so
determined by Landlord, or (b) Landlord and Tenant agree in writing (which
agreement (an "FMV AGREEMENT") shall be duly executed and delivered by
Landlord and Tenant) upon the fixed rent for the Extension Term. If
Landlord and Tenant fail to so agree upon the fixed rent for the Extension
Term, the FMV Amount for the Extension Term shall be determined by
arbitration pursuant to Section F below.

       F. If Tenant gives to Landlord a Dispute Notice in respect of the
FMV Amount so determined by Landlord as provided in Section E above, and
Landlord and Tenant fail to execute and deliver an FMV Agreement on or
before the Determination Date, then the FMV Amount for the Extension Term
shall be determined by arbitration as follows:

              (a) Landlord and Tenant shall each appoint an arbitrator by
written notice given to the other party hereto not later than thirty (30)
days after the Determination Date. If either Landlord or Tenant fail to
appoint an arbitrator within such period of time and thereafter fail to do
so by written notice given within a period of five (5) days after notice by
the other party requesting the appointment of such arbitrator, then such
arbitrator shall be appointed by the AAA or its successor (the branch
office of which is located in or closest to the City and State of New
York), upon request of either Landlord or Tenant, as the case may be;

              (b) the two (2) arbitrators appointed as above provided shall
designate a third independent arbitrator (the "INDEPENDENT ARBITRATOR").
Upon the failure of the two to agree upon the Independent Arbitrator, the
Independent Arbitrator shall be appointed as provided in clause (a) above.
Concurrently with the appointment of the Independent Arbitrator, each of
the initial two arbitrators shall submit to the Independent Arbitrator,
with copies to Landlord and Tenant, it's estimate of the FMV Amount. If the
FMV Amount set forth in the submissions by Landlord's arbitrator and
Tenant's arbitrator shall differ by less than $1.00 per rentable square
foot for each year of the renewal term, then the FMV Amount shall be the
average of the FMV Amounts set forth in Landlord's arbitrator's submission
and Tenant's arbitrator's submission. If the FMV Amount set forth in
Landlord's arbitrator's submission and Tenant's arbitrator's submission
shall differ by more than $0.99 per rentable square foot for each year of
the renewal term, averaged over the number of floors in the demised
premises, the Independent Arbitrator shall conduct such investigations and
hearings as he may deem appropriate and shall, within thirty (30) days
after the date of his designation, choose either the FMV Amount set forth
in Landlord's arbitrator's submission or the FMV Amount set forth in
Tenant's arbitrator's submission as the Extension Rent. The Independent
Arbitrator's choice shall be binding upon Landlord and Tenant. Landlord and
Tenant shall each pay the fees and expenses of its own arbitrator. The fees
and expenses of the Independent Arbitrator shall be shared equally and paid
by Tenant and Landlord.

              (c) all of such arbitrators shall be M.A.I. or S.R.P.A. real
estate appraisers having not less than ten (l0) years experience in
appraising the value of leasehold interests in real estate similar to the
Building located within the City of New York and whose appraisals are
acceptable to savings banks or life insurance companies doing business in
the State of New York.

       G. If Tenant gives to Landlord a Dispute Notice in respect of the
FMV Amount so determined by Landlord as provided in Section E, and the
fixed rent for the Extension Term shall not be finally determined pursuant
to the terms of Section E or F hereof on or before the Extension Term
Commencement Date, then:

              (a) The annual fixed rent payable by Tenant during the
Extension Term until the fixed rent for the Extension Term shall be so
finally determined shall, subject to adjustment as herein provided, be
equal to the fixed rent at the end of the initial term, plus the annual Tax
Payment and the Operating Expense Payment payable by Tenant as of the
Extension Term Commencement Date (collectively, the "EXTENSION MINIMUM
RENT"); and

              (b) If the fixed rent for the Extension Term, as finally
determined pursuant to the terms of Section F hereof, shall be greater than
the Extension Minimum Rent, then (i) the annual fixed rent payable by
Tenant for the balance of the Extension Term shall be and become the fixed
rent as so finally determined, and (ii) Tenant shall, within twenty (20)
days after Landlord's demand therefor, pay to Landlord an amount equal to
the difference between (x) the sum of the actual fixed rent payments paid
to Landlord during the Extension Term before such final determination and
(y) the sum of the fixed rent payments that would have been payable by
Tenant if the fixed rent for the Extension Term had been finally determined
prior to Extension Term Commencement Date.

       H. If, in accordance with and subject to, all of the terms,
covenants and conditions contained in this Article, the term of this lease
is extended for the Extension Term, then "EXPIRATION DATE," as such term is
used in this lease, shall mean the "EXTENSION TERM EXPIRATION DATE," and
"TERM OF THIS LEASE" (and comparable words), shall mean the initial term of
this lease, as extended by the Extension Term. Notwithstanding anything
which may be contained in this lease to the contrary, Landlord shall have
no obligation or duty, nor shall Landlord be required, to make any repairs,
installations, alterations or improvements to the demised premises or any
portion thereof (including, without limitation, painting, finishing,
plastering or decorating), with respect to the Extension Term, provided,
however, that nothing contained in this sentence shall affect Landlord's
obligations to perform the repairs that Landlord is expressly required to
make under this lease. Except as expressly set forth in this Article,
Tenant shall not have any option or right to extend or renew the term of
this lease.

61.    MISCELLANEOUS:

       A. CONSENTIf Tenant shall request Landlord's consent or approval
pursuant to any of the provisions of this lease or otherwise, and Landlord
shall fail or refuse to give, or shall delay in giving, such consent or
approval, Tenant shall in no event make, or be entitled to make, any claim
for damages, except as specifically provided below (nor shall Tenant
assert, or be entitled to assert, any such claim by way of defense,
set-off, or counterclaim), based upon any claim or assertion by Tenant that
Landlord unreasonably withheld or delayed its consent or approval, and
Tenant hereby waives any and all rights that it may have, from whatever
source derived, to make or assert any such claim. Tenant's sole remedy for
any such failure, refusal, or delay shall be an action for a declaratory
judgment, specific performance, or injunction, and such remedies shall be
available only in those instances where Landlord has expressly agreed in
writing not to unreasonably withhold or delay its consent or approval or
where, as a matter of law, Landlord may not unreasonably withhold or delay
the same ; provided that if Landlord is found to have acted arbitrarily and
capriciously in denying its consent to any instance where Landlord may not
unreasonably withhold or delay same, Tenant may additionally have a remedy
at law against Landlord for Tenant's actual (but in no event consequential)
damages caused by Landlord's arbitrary and capricious denial or refusal of
consent. In addition, whenever in this lease Landlord is required to be
reasonable in the granting of any consent or approval or otherwise,
Landlord shall not be deemed to have been unreasonable in the refusal to
give its consent or approval or otherwise, and Tenant shall not be entitled
to the foregoing remedies, if: (a) Landlord is not permitted to do so under
the terms of any superior lease or superior mortgage and Landlord certifies
as to such to Tenant or (b) the consent or approval of any superior lessor
or holder of superior mortgagee is required and has been denied.

       B.     CERTAIN DEFINITIONS.

              (a) The terms "INCLUDE," "INCLUDING" and "SUCH AS" shall each

and/or the demised premises.

              (e) The term "REPAIR" shall be deemed to include restoration
and replacement as may be necessary to achieve and/or maintain good working
order and condition. The foregoing definition is not intended and shall not
be deemed to increase any repair obligations imposed on either Landlord or
Tenant pursuant to the provisions of this lease.

fire stairs or other building facilities and systems, and the use thereof,
as well as access thereto through the demised premises for the purpose of
operation, maintenance, decoration and repair, are reserved to Landlord.

       D. FORCE MAJEURE. The period of time during which either Landlord or
Tenant is prevented or delayed in the performance of the making of any
alterations, restorations, repairs improvements or other work required to

beyond such party's reasonable control, shall be added to such party's time
for performance thereof, and such party shall not be deemed in default
hereunder as a result of such delay.

       E. COVENANTS AS CONDITIONS. All of the covenants of Tenant hereunder

though the words specifically expressing or implying covenants and
conditions were used in each separate instance.

       F. GOVERNING LAW. This lease shall be governed in all respects by
the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and wholly

shall not be affected thereby, and every provision of this lease shall be
valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. This
Agreement and the Lease shall be construed without regard to any
presumption or other rule requiring construction against the party causing
this Agreement or the Lease to be drafted.

       H. LEASE NOT BINDING UNTIL EXECUTED. Submission by Landlord of this
lease for execution by Tenant shall confer no rights nor impose any
obligations on either party unless and until both Landlord and Tenant shall

so.

       K. INDEMNIFICATION. In all cases under the Lease where Landlord is
entitled to indemnification by Tenant, Landlord shall notify Tenant in
writing of any demand, claim, action, loss, liability, cost or expense
which Landlord has determined could give rise to a claim for such indemnity
promptly after Landlord has made such determination. The failure of
Landlord timely to give such notice shall not release Tenant of its
indemnity obligations hereunder except to the extent such failure directly
causes or results in additional damages, losses, liabilities or expenses.
Tenant shall be entitled to defend any such claim with counsel selected by
Tenant, subject to the reasonable approval of Landlord.

       L. Wherever there is a requirement that Tenant be the "Tenant herein
named" or words of similar import, such terms shall include Tenant and any

62.    TELECOMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION:

       A. From and after the date on which Tenant notifies Landlord of
Tenant's desire to use the Roof Space (as hereinafter defined) for the
installation, maintenance and operation on the roof of the Building of
telecommunications equipment including a satellite dish or antennae (such
notice being hereinafter referred to as the "TELECOMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT
NOTICE"), Tenant shall have the right, in accordance with, and subject to,
the provisions of this Article, to install, maintain and operate on the
roof of the Building, at its sole cost and expense and throughout the
balance of the term of this lease, one satellite dish or antennae and
support equipment, on a pad that is no larger than 10' x 10' (hereinafter
collectively referred to as the "Installations") located in the
southwestern portion of the 26th floor roof of the Building in an area
designated by Landlord, subject to all of the applicable terms, covenants
and provisions of this lease, and subject to Landlord's prior written
approval (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed)
including, without limitation, approval as to size and method of
attachment, which approval shall also be required for modifications to, and
the removal of, the same. In connection with such installation, maintenance
and operation, Tenant shall comply with all laws, ordinances, orders,
rules, regulations and requirements of all governmental and
quasi-governmental authorities having jurisdiction thereof; shall, prior to
commencing the installation of the Installations, provide Landlord with a
radiation hazard analysis satisfactory to Landlord, and prior to commencing
the installation of the Installations, and from time to time thereafter,
within ten (10) days after Landlord's request therefor, provide Landlord
with the affidavit of a licensed and certified engineer, stating that the
Installations comply with such laws, ordinances, orders, rules, regulations
and requirements; and shall procure, maintain and pay for all permits,
certificates, consents, authorizations and licenses required therefor,
including all renewals thereof. The installation, maintenance and operation
of the Installations shall be subject to all of the terms, covenants and
conditions of Article 42, and of the other applicable provisions of this
lease, as if such installation, maintenance and operation were a Tenant's
Change. In addition to the provisions of Article 49 above, Tenant shall
procure, maintain and pay for such liability and property damage insurance
as Landlord shall reasonably require in connection with such installation,
maintenance and operation, in form, substance and with limits of liability
reasonably designated or reasonably approved, in writing, by Landlord.
Tenant shall have Landlord, the holders of all superior mortgages and the
agents and representatives of all of such holders and all other entities
and persons reasonably designated by Landlord, named as additional insureds
on all such insurance policies. In connection with the installation of the
Installations on the rooftop, Tenant may use, subject to the provisions of
this Article, those shaft(s) of the Building reasonably designated by
Landlord to connect the Installations on the rooftop of the Building to the
demised premises, and the existing four (4") inch diameter communications
conduits from the 14th floor to the basement frame rooms.

B.     Intentionally omitted.



       C. Tenant shall pay for all electrical service required for Tenant's
use of the Installations in accordance with Article 44 of this lease. In
addition, all costs and expenses paid or incurred by or on behalf of
Landlord in connection with the Installations (including, without
limitation, the cost of reviewing plans and specifications), shall be
reimbursed to Landlord, from time to time, within thirty (30) days after
Landlord's demand therefor, and shall be deemed additional rent.

       D. Tenant covenants and agrees that the installation, maintenance,
repair, operation and removal of the Installations on the rooftop of the
Building or in any other part of the Building shall be at the sole risk of
Tenant. Neither Landlord, nor any agent or employee of Landlord, shall be
responsible or liable for any injury or damage to, or loss of, the
Installations. Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, shall promptly
repair any and all damage to the rooftop of the Building and to any part of
the Building caused by or resulting from the installation, maintenance,
repair, operation or removal of the Installations, and shall promptly
maintain the Installations in good working condition, and promptly make all
repairs thereto and replacements thereof; provided, however, that all
maintenance, repair and replacement work shall be performed only by a
contractor or contractors reasonably approved by Landlord. If Tenant fails
to so maintain, or make any repairs to or replacements of, the
Installations, the rooftop of the Building or any other part of the
Building, Landlord may, but shall not be obligated to, perform such
maintenance or make such repairs or replacements, and Tenant shall
reimburse Landlord for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by
Landlord as a result thereof, within thirty (30) days after Landlord's
demand therefor. To the extent that Landlord has purchased (or caused to
have been purchased), or installed (or caused to have been installed), one
(1) or more components of the Installations, Landlord shall be deemed to
have acted as Tenant's agent. At no cost to Landlord, and without any
representations or warranties by Landlord, or recourse against Landlord,
Landlord shall assign to Tenant, to the extent assignable to Tenant,
Landlord's beneficial interest in all warranties and guarantees issued to
Landlord in respect of the Installations, together with Landlord's rights
(if any) to enforce such warranties and guarantees. Tenant shall indemnify
and hold Landlord harmless from and against any and all actions,
proceedings, liabilities, obligations, claims, damages, deficiencies,
losses, judgments, suits, expenses and costs (including, without
limitation, reasonable legal fees and disbursements) arising under or out
of, or in connection with or resulting from the installation, maintenance,
operation or presence of the Installations. Tenant further covenants and
agrees that the Installations and any related equipment erected or
installed by Tenant pursuant to the provisions of this Article shall be
erected, installed, repaired, maintained and operated by Tenant at the sole
cost and expense of Tenant and without charge, cost or expense to Landlord.
Tenant hereby acknowledges that Landlord has made no representations or
warranties as to whether the rooftop of the Building is suitable for the
installation, maintenance or operation of the Installation, or whether the
Installations can be used for its intended purpose. Landlord agrees, at no
cost to Landlord, to reasonably cooperate with Tenant, at Tenant's sole
cost and expense, in connection with Tenant's obtaining any approvals of
the New York City Landmark's Commission in connection with the
Installations.

       E. The portion of the rooftop of the Building on which the
Installations are to be located is hereinafter referred to as the "ROOF
Space." Tenant shall use the Roof Space for the installation, operation,
maintenance and repair of the Installations, as hereinbefore and
hereinafter provided, and for no other purpose. Tenant shall not make, or
permit to be made, any alteration, installation, improvement, substitution
or addition to the Roof Space or any other portion of the Building, except
as expressly permitted under this lease.

       F. Notwithstanding anything contained in this lease which may be
deemed to the contrary, (a) Landlord shall have, any may exercise, any and
all of its rights and remedies under this lease, at law and in equity, with
respect to the Roof Space and the Installations, (b) Tenant shall not have,
and may not exercise any of its rights or remedies under this lease with
respect to the Roof Space or the Installations, except as otherwise
expressly set forth in this Article, and (c) Tenant shall have, and be
responsible for, all of its obligations and liabilities under this lease at
law and in equity with respect to the Roof Space and the Installations, all
as if the Roof Space and the Installations, and such other portions of the
Building on which or through which the Installations are located, were a
part of the demised premises. The parties agree that Tenant's use of the
roof of the Building is non-exclusive use and Landlord may use, and/or
permit the use of, any other portion of the roof to any other person or
entity for any use including the installation of other satellite dishes,
antennae, generators and/or communications systems. Tenant shall not permit
its use of the roof of the Building, or the installation, operation,
maintenance, repair or removal of the Installations, to impair, interfere
with or adversely affect Landlord's or such other person's or entity's data
transmission and reception via their respective antennas or satellite
dishes, and support equipment, if any, or the operation or use of any of
the Building's systems or services. Provided that Tenant's level of
microwave emissions from the Installations do not exceed an amount equal to
Tenant's Proportionate Share of the total microwave emissions allowable for
the Building as determined by the governmental authorities having
jurisdiction thereof, Tenant shall not be required to reduce its level of
microwave emissions in the event that the maximum level of microwave
emissions for the Building is exceeded.

       G. (a) Tenant acknowledges that it is fully familiar and thoroughly
acquainted with the condition of the roof of the Building, and that it has
examined, investigated and inspected the roof of the Building and has had
adequate opportunity to conduct such further examinations, investigations
and inspections of the roof of the Building as it deemed necessary or
desirable. Neither Landlord, nor any of its agents or representatives, has
made or does make any representations or warranties as to the physical
condition of the roof, or as to whether any portion of the roof (including
the Roof Space) can be used for the installation or operation of an antenna
or satellite dish, or as to whether any of the laws, orders, regulations,
directions, rules or requirements referred to in Section A above permits,
prohibits, restricts or limits Tenant in any way to so install and operate,
or from so installing and operating, an antenna on the Roof Space or any
other portion of the Building, or as to whether any of the permits,
certificates, consents, authorizations and licenses referred to in Section
A above will be issued or given.

              (b) Nothing contained in this Article, including, without
limitation, the incorporation or application of certain provisions of this
lease to the installation, operation and maintenance of the Installations
and the Roof Space and the designation of the Use Fee (as hereinafter
defined) as additional rent, shall grant (or be deemed to have granted) any
leasehold or other possessory rights, title, estates or interests in or to
the Roof Space or any other portion of the Building. Tenant's use of the
Roof Space, and its right to install, operate and maintain the
Installations, is a license, and shall be subject to Section 713, Paragraph
7 of the New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law and all other
applicable laws. Landlord may, by giving notice to Tenant, suspend the
within license (i) temporarily in order to allow the making of any and all
repairs, replacements, changes, modifications, improvements, decorations or
substitutions (collectively, "REPAIRS") to the Roof Space or any other
portion of the Building, which Landlord, in Landlord's discretion, deems
necessary or desirable, (ii) temporarily if the whole or any portion of the
Roof Space or the Building shall be damaged or destroyed by fire or other
casualty, or acquired or condemned for any public or quasi-public use or
purpose, (iii) temporarily or permanently if Landlord is temporarily or, as
the case may be, prohibited, prevented or limited from permitting Tenant to
use the Roof Space on account of any of the laws, orders, regulations,
directions, rules or requirements of governmental authorities pertaining to
the Building or the Roof Space or Section A above or by reason of strikes,
labor troubles, accidents, inability to obtain insurance at commercially
reasonable rates, repairs or any other cause beyond Landlord's reasonable
control, or (iv) if Tenant's maintenance, use or operation of the
Installations impairs, interferes with or adversely affects Landlord's or
any other person's or entity's data transmission or reception via their
respective antennae or satellite dishes, and support equipment (other than
antennae or satellite dishes of other tenants of the Building that are
installed on the roof of the Building after the installation of the
Installations), or the operation or use of any of the Building's systems or
services (all of the foregoing in this subsection (b) being hereinafter
collectively referred to as "UNAVOIDABLE EVENTS", and individually as an
"UNAVOIDABLE EVENT"). If in connection with any of the foregoing, Landlord
temporarily suspends the within license, then this Article and the
obligations of Tenant to observe, perform and comply with all of the terms,
covenants and conditions in this Article on Tenant's part to observe,
perform and comply with, shall not be affected, impaired or excused on
account thereof, except that the Use Fee shall be abated, on a per diem
basis, for each and every day of such temporary revocation that Tenant does
not operate the Installations. If in connection with any of the foregoing,
Landlord does not so revoke the within license, Landlord shall use
reasonable efforts to minimize interference with Tenant's operation of the
Installations during the time that the Repair is being performed, the Roof
Space is being repaired in connection with such fire, other casualty,
acquisition or condemnation, or the Unavoidable Event is being corrected,
as the case may be, provided that "reasonable efforts" by Landlord shall
not be interpreted to require Landlord to incur any additional costs in
order to minimize such interference, provided that Landlord agrees to
notify Tenant of the amount of any increased costs which may be required to
minimize such interference and, if Tenant pays to Landlord such increased
costs, Landlord shall agree to perform such work in such manner.
Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section G to the contrary,
Landlord may not permanently revoke the within license if upon the
completion of the Repair, the completion of any repair in respect of such
fire, other casualty, acquisition or condemnation, or the completion of
such correction, as the case may be, the Roof Space will continue to be
used for the installation and operation of an antenna or satellite dish.

              (c) If the Roof Space or any part thereof shall be damaged or
destroyed by fire or other casualty, Tenant shall give immediate notice
thereof to Landlord. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in
this lease, Landlord shall have no obligation to repair any damage to, or
to replace the Installations or any fixtures, furniture, furnishing,
equipment or other property or effects of Tenant related to the
Installations. In no event shall Tenant be entitled to receive any portion
of insurance proceeds or award for, or have any claim whatsoever against
Landlord or the condemning authority in connection with, any such damage,
destruction, acquisition or condemnation.

       H. Tenant shall not directly or indirectly, by operation of law, or
otherwise, assign or otherwise transfer the within license or its rights
under this Article, or underlet, sublet, or sublicense, the within license,
any of such rights, or any portion of the Roof Space. Tenant acknowledges
and agrees that the within license and the rights granted to Tenant
pursuant to this Article, are granted exclusively for the enjoyment of the
Tenant named herein, and for no other persons or entities. If Tenant
assigns any of its right, title or interest in this lease, or sublets, or
permits any person or entity to use, any portion of the Roof Space, then
the within license and all such rights shall be revoked and terminated on
the effective date of such assignment or the commencement date of such
sublease or use, as the case may be. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tenant
shall be permitted to assign or otherwise transfer the within license to
the assignee of Tenant's interest in this lease, or to Tenant's subtenant
(if such subtenant is subleasing at least 90% of the rentable area of the
demised premises) in connection with an assignment of the lease or sublease
of all or substantially all of the demised premises, which assignment or
sublease is approved, or is deemed approved, by Landlord pursuant to the
provisions of Article 48.

       I. The Installations and related equipment installed by Tenant
pursuant the provisions of this Article shall be Tenant's Property, and,
upon the expiration of the term of this lease, or such earlier date
selected by Tenant, shall be removed by Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and
expense, and Tenant shall repair any damage to the rooftop of the Building,
or any other portion or portions of the Building caused by or resulting
from said removal. If the Installations and related equipment are so
removed by Tenant prior to the expiration of the term of this lease, Tenant
may so notify Landlord (such notice being hereinafter referred to as the
"TELECOMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT TERMINATION NOTICE"). The giving of the
Telecommunications Equipment Termination Notice will be effective only if
on or prior to Landlord's receipt thereof, Tenant has removed the
Installations and all related equipment in accordance with the provisions
of this Article.

       J. Landlord, upon thirty (30) days' prior written notice to Tenant,
may reasonably relocate the Installations and related equipment to other
areas of the Building and rooftop thereof, which relocation shall be at
Tenant's sole cost and expense, provided such relocation shall not
materially reduce the performance of the Installations, and which right of
relocation shall be in addition to any and all of Landlord's other rights
and remedies under this lease or available at law or in equity if the
necessity therefor results from any failure of Tenant to observe, perform
or comply with any of the terms, covenants or conditions contained in this
Article 62. Tenant agrees to cooperate with Landlord in connection with any
such relocation.

       K. In consideration of Tenant's right to use portions of the
Building in connection with the installation, operation and maintenance of
the Installations, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, without notice or demand,
in lawful money of the United States of America, by check drawn on a bank
which is a member of the New York Clearinghouse Association, at the office
of the Landlord in the Building or at such other place as Landlord may
designate, as additional rent, the sum of $1,000.00 per month (the "USE
FEE"), in advance, on the first day of each and every month during the term
of this lease, from and after the date on which Tenant gives the
Telecommunications Equipment Notice to Landlord, provided Landlord delivers
the Satellite Space to Tenant through the expiration date of the term of
this lease or through such earlier date on which Landlord receives the
Satellite Termination Notice. (If the date on which Tenant gives the
Telecommunications Equipment Notice to Landlord is not the first (1st) day
of a calendar month, or if the expiration date of the term of this lease or
the date on which Landlord receives the Satellite Termination Notice is not
the last day of a calendar month, the Use Fee for such month(s) shall be
prorated.) Landlord shall have the same rights and remedies for non-payment
of the Use Fee as for non-payment of fixed rent. There shall be no
abatement or reduction of, reduction from, or counterclaim or setoff
against the Use Fee, unless otherwise specifically and expressly permitted
in this Article.

63.    LOWER MANHATTAN ELECTRICAL PLAN

       Tenant acknowledges receipt of advice from Landlord to the effect
that, prior to the date of this Agreement, Landlord filed an application to
qualify the Building under the ICIP. Landlord and Tenant further
acknowledge that in the event the Building qualifies under the ICIP, then
due to such qualification, the Building may also qualify under the Lower
Manhattan Energy Plan, Article 2-I of the General City Law of the City of
New York (the "LMEP") and, if Landlord has applied for, and successfully
qualifies the Building under the LMEP, then Landlord shall credit against
Tenant's Cost, the reduction in the Landlord's Rate realized by the
Building under the LMEP to the extent attributable to the demised premises.
In accordance with Article 2-I of the General City law of the City of New
York, subsection 25-bb(c)(5), Landlord shall set forth on all invoices for
Tenant's bills from Landlord for electricity (for which reductions thereof
are by reason of the applicability of the LMEP), substantially the
following language:

       "Tenant may be entitled to share a rebate which your Landlord has
received for charges for energy pursuant to the revitalization area energy
rebate program. The amount is separately stated and identified in this
bill."



              IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Landlord and Tenant have duly executed
this lease as of the day and year first above written.

       WHEREAS, Tenant has entered into a certain lease dated _____________
(as the same may be amended, restated, replaced, supplemented or otherwise
modified from time to time in accordance with the terms of this Agreement,
the "Lease") with W12/14 Wall Acquisition Associates LLC (the "Landlord"),
covering certain premises more fully described in the Lease (the
"Premises");

       WHEREAS, Mortgagee provided or will provide permanent financing to
Landlord and other entities which is secured by, inter alia, first and
second priority mortgages (collectively, the "Mortgage") on the interests
of Landlord in the property described in Exhibit "A" attached hereto, of
which the Premises are a part (the "Property");

       WHEREAS, Mortgagee and Tenant mutually desire the subordination of
the Lease to the Mortgage and the recognition of the Lease by Mortgagee
upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth.

       NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the sum of One Dollar ($1.00) by
each party in hand paid to the other, the receipt of which is hereby
acknowledged, and in consideration of the mutual promises, covenants and
agreements herein contained, the parties hereto, intending to be legally

to be made a party thereto as a condition to proceeding against Landlord)
or to terminate or affect the Lease nor to affect or disturb all rights of
Tenant under the Lease, including, but not limited to, the rights of
possession, occupancy and use of the Premises and the Property at the
rental and upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Lease, and the
right to exercise and enjoy all expansion and extension options (if any)
under the Lease so long as Tenant is not then in default under any of the
terms, covenants, or conditions of the Lease or this Agreement (after the
giving of any required notice and after the expiration of any applicable
cure period) and the Lease is in full force and effect.

       3. If Mortgagee succeeds to the interest of Landlord under the Lease
and/or to title to the Premises and/or the Property, or if anyone else
acquires title to or the right to possession of the Premises and/or the
Property upon the foreclosure of the Mortgage or by other sale pursuant to
the Mortgage, or upon the sale of the Premises and/or the Property by
Mortgagee or its successors and assigns after foreclosure or other sale
pursuant to the Mortgage or acquisition of title in lieu thereof or
otherwise, Mortgagee or its successors or assigns or the then owner of the

the Mortgage (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Successor
Landlord"), and Tenant hereby agree to be bound to one another under all of
the terms, convenants and conditions of the Lease and Tenant agrees to make
full and complete attornment to Successor Landlord so as to establish
direct priority or estate and contract between Successor Landlord and
Tenant with the same force and effect as if the Lease were originally made
directly between Successor Landlord and Tenant; accordingly from and after
such event, Successor Landlord and Tenant shall have the same remedies
against one another for the breach of an agreement contained in the Lease
as Tenant and Landlord had before Successor Landlord succeeded to the
interest of Landlord; provided, however, that Successor Landlord shall not
be:

              (a)    liable for any act, omission or negligence of any prior
landlord (including the present Landlord); or

              (b) subject to any claims, offsets or defenses which Tenant

except for any claims, defenses or offsets expressly allowed under the
terms of the Lease and which accrue after Successor Landlord succeeded to
the interest of Landlord; or

              (c) obligated to cure any defaults of Landlord which
occurred, or to make any payments to Tenant which was required to be paid
by Landlord, prior to the time that Successor Landlord succeeded to the
interest of Landlord under the Lease; or

              (d) bound by any agreement, modification, termination or
surrender of the Lease made without the written consent of Mortgagee; or

              (e) bound by any rent or additional rent which Tenant might

or other prepaid charge to any prior landlord (including the present
Landlord) except as required pursuant to the terms of the Lease; or

              (f) liable for any security deposited under the Lease unless

by or against Landlord or a foreclosure action or proceeding or delivery of
a deed in lieu, upon request by Successor Landlord, Tenant shall promptly
execute and deliver a direct lease with Successor Landlord which direct
lease shall be on substantially the same terms and conditions as the Lease

other sums due and to become due under the Lease.

              (d) Tenant shall not alter or modify the Lease in any respect

              (f) Tenant is now the sole owner of the leasehold estate
created by the Lease and shall not hereafter assign or sublease the Lease
or any portion thereof except as permitted by the terms thereof.

              (g) Except in the event of a casualty as permitted by the
Lease, Tenant shall not seek to terminate the Lease or claim partial or
total eviction or abate or reduce the rent payable under the Lease by
reason of any act, omission or default of Landlord without prior written
notice thereof to Mortgagee and the lapse thereafter of such time as under
the Lease was offered to Landlord in which to remedy the default after
which time Mortgagee, as its option, may remedy any such act, omission or
default with thirty (30) days after the expiration of such time as Landlord
was permitted to cure such default; provided, however, that with respect to
any default of Landlord under the Lease which cannot be remedied within
such time, it Mortgagee commences to cure such act, omission or default
within such time and thereafter diligently proceeds with such efforts,
Mortgagee shall have such time as is reasonably necessary to complete
curing such act, omission or default. If Mortgagee cannot reasonably cure
such act, omission or default until after Mortgagee obtains possession of
the Premises, Tenant may not terminate or cancel the Lease or claim partial
or total eviction or abate or reduce the rent payable under the Lease by
reason by such act, omission or default, until the expiration of a
reasonable period necessary for the remedy after Mortgagee secures
possession of the Premises. To the extent Mortgagee incurs any expenses or
other costs in curing or remedying such act, omission or default, including
without limitation, attorneys' fees and disbursements, Mortgagee shall be
subrogated to Tenant's rights against any prior landlord (including
Landlord). Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) Mortgagee shall have no
obligation hereunder to remedy any act, omission or default of any prior
landlord (including Landlord) and (ii) the cure period provided to
Mortgagee in this paragraph shall in no event be less than the period to
which Landlord or Mortgagee would be entitled under the Lease or otherwise
after similar notice, to remedy any act, omission or default of any prior
landlord (including Landlord).

              (h) This Agreement satisfies any condition or requirement in
the Lease, if any, relating to the granting of a non-disturbance agreement
with respect to the Mortgage and, to the extent that the Lease shall
entitle Tenant to notice of the existence of any mortgage and the identity
of any mortgagee, this Agreement shall constitute such notice to Tenant
with respect to the Mortgage and Mortgagee.

              (i) Upon and after the occurrence of a default under the
Mortgage, Mortgagee shall be entitled, but not obligated, to exercise the
claims, right, powers, privileges and remedies of Landlord under the Lease
and shall be further entitled to the benefits of, and to receive and
enforce performance of, all of the covenants to be performed by Tenant
under the Lease as though Mortgagee were named therein as Landlord. Tenant
shall be absolutely entitled to rely on any notice received from Mortgagee
and shall not be required to inquire as to whether there has been a default
under the Mortgage or whether Mortgagee is entitled to possession of the
Premises or receive payments under the Lease.

              (j) Notwithstanding Section 2 hereof, if the Lease provides
that Tenant is entitled to expansion space or any other space, Successor
Landlord shall have no obligation nor any liability for failure to provide
such expansion space or such other space if a prior landlord (including
Landlord), by reason of a lease or leases entered into by such prior
landlord (including Landlord) with other tenants of the Property, has
precluded the availability of such expansion space or such other space, but
this provision shall not alter, amend, waive or impair any rights Tenant
may have against such prior landlord.

              (k) Tenant agrees to enter into a subordination,
non-disturbance and attornment agreement with any lender which shall
succeed Mortgagee as lender with respect to the Property, or any portion
thereof, provided such agreement is substantially similar to the Agreement.

              (l) Tenant has not subordinated the Lease or its rights
thereunder to any other mortgage or lien. Tenant agrees not to subordinate
the Lease or any of its rights thereunder to any other mortgage or lien
without the prior written consent of Mortgagee.

       6. Except as specifically provided in this Agreement, Mortgages
shall not, by virtue of this Agreement, the Mortgage or any other
instrument to which Mortgagee may be a party, be or become subject to any
liability or obligation to Tenant under the Lease or otherwise.

       7. Anything herein or in the Lease to the contrary notwithstanding,
Successor Landlord shall have no obligation, nor incur any liability beyond
Successor Landlord's then equity interest of Successor Landlord, if any, in
the Premises for the payment and discharge of any obligations imposed upon
Successor Landlord hereunder or under the Lease, and Successor Landlord is
hereby released and relieved of any other obligations hereunder and under
the Lease. Tenant agrees that with respect to any money judgment which may
be obtained or secured by Tenant against Successor Landlord, Tenant will
look solely to the estate or interest owned by Successor Landlord in the
Property, and Tenant will not collect or attempt to collect any such
judgment out of other assets of Successor Landlord.

       8. Tenant waives the provisions of any statute of rule of law now or
hereafter in effect which may give or purport to give it any right or
election to terminate or otherwise adversely affect the Lease and the
obligations of Tenant thereunder by reason of any foreclosure proceeding in
respect of the Mortgage.

       9. All notices shall be given in writing and shall be effective for
all purposes if hand delivered or sent by (a) certified or registered
United States mail, postage prepaid, (b) expedited prepaid delivery
service, either commercial or Untied States Postal Service, with proof of
attempted delivery or (c) by facsimile, addressed as follows (or at such

Mortgagee of notice that Landlord has defaulted under the Mortgage or any
of the loan documents entered into between Landlord and Mortgagee and has

rent and other sums after Mortgagee has sent any such notice to Tenant.

5      No sign, advertisement, notice or other lettering shall be
       exhibited, inscribed, painted or affixed by any Tenant on any part
       of the outside of the demised premises or the building or on the
       inside of the demised premise if the same is visible from the
       outside of the premises without the prior written consent of Owner,
       except that the name of Tenant may appear at the entrance door of
       the premises. In the event of the violation of the foregoing by any
       Tenant, Owner may remove same without any liability, and may charge
       the expense incurred by such removal to Tenant or Tenants violating
       this rule.

6      No Tenant shall lay linoleum, or other similar floor covering, so
       that the same shall come in direct contact with the floor of the
       demised premises, and, if linoleum or other similar floor covering
       is desired to be used an interlining of builder's deadening felt
       shall be first affixed to the floor, by a paste or other material,
       soluble in water, the use of cement or other similar adhesive
       material being expressly prohibited.

7      Each Tenant must, upon the termination of his Tenancy, restore to
       Owner all keys of stores, offices and toilet rooms, either furnished
       to, or otherwise procured by, such Tenant, and in the event of the
       loss of any keys, so furnished, such Tenant shall pay to Owner the
       cost thereof.

8      Freight, furniture, business equipment, merchandise and bulky matter
       of any description shall be delivered to and removed from the
       premises only on the freight elevators and through the service
       entrances and corridors, and only during hours and in a manner
       approved by Owner. Owner reserves the right to inspect all freight
       to be brought into the building and to exclude from the building all
       freight which violates any of these Rules and Regulations of the
       lease or which these Rules and Regulations are a part.

       and each Tenant shall cooperate to prevent the same.

10     Owner reserves the right to exclude from the building all persons
       who do not present a pass to the building signed by Owner. Owner
       will furnish passes to persons for whom any Tenant requests same in
       writing. Each Tenant shall be responsible for all persons for whom
       he requests such pass and shall be liable to Owner for all acts of
       such persons. Tenant shall not have a claim against Owner by reason
       of Owner excluding from the building any person who does not present
       such pass.

11     Intentionally omitted.

12     Intentionally omitted.

13     If the building contains central air conditioning and ventilation,

       by all rules and regulations issued by Owner with respect to such
       services.

14     Tenant shall not move any safe, heavy machinery, heavy equipment,
       bulky matter, or fixtures into or out of the building without
       Owner's prior written consent not to be unreasonably withheld. If
       such safe, machinery, equipment, bulky matter or fixtures requires
       special handling, all work in connection therewith shall comply with
       the Administrative Code of the City of New York and all other laws
       and regulations applicable thereto and shall be done during such
       hours as Owner may designate.

15     Refuse and Trash. (1) Compliance by Tenant. Tenant covenants and
       agrees, at its sole cost and expense, to comply with all present and
       future laws, orders, and regulations of all state, federal,
       municipal, and local governments, departments, commissions and
       boards regarding the collection, sorting, separation and recycling
       of waste products, garbage, refuse and trash. Tenant shall sort and
       separate such waste products, garbage, refuse and trash into such
       categories as provided by law. Each separately sorted category of
       waste products, garbage, refuse and trash shall be placed in
       separate receptacles reasonably approved by Owner. Such separate
       receptacles may, at Owner's option, be removed from the demised
       premises in accordance with a collection schedule prescribed by law.
       Tenant shall remove, or cause to be removed by a contractor
       acceptable to Owner, at Owner's sole discretion, such items as Owner
       may expressly designate. (2) Owner's Rights in Event of
       Noncompliance. Owner has the option to refuse to collect or accept
       from Tenant waste products, garbage, refuse or trash (a) that is not
       separated and sorted as required by law or (b) which consists of
       such items as Owner may expressly designate for Tenant's removal,
       and to require Tenant to arrange for such collection at Tenant's
       sole cost and expense, utilizing a contractor satisfactory to Owner.
       Tenant shall pay all costs, expenses, fines, penalties, or damages
       that may be imposed on Owner or Tenant by reason of Tenant's failure
       to comply with the provisions of this Building Rule 15, and, at
       Tenant's sole cost and expense, shall indemnify, defend and hold
       Owner harmless (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) from
       and against any actions, claims and suits arising from such
       noncompliance, utilizing counsel reasonably satisfactory to Owner.

Attention: Jeffrey J. Temple, Esq.


                        SUBORDINATION, NON-DISTURBANCE
                           AND ATTORNMENT AGREEMENT

              THIS AGREEMENT, dated as of July 22,1999 between PW Real
Estate Investments Inc. ("Mortgagee"), having its principal place of
business at 1285 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York, 10019, and
TheStreet.Com, Inc. ("Tenant"), having its principal place of business at
2 Rector Street, New York, New York 10006.

WITNESSETH:

       WHEREAS, Tenant has entered into a certain lease dated July 22, 1999
(as the same may be amended, restated, replaced, supplemented or otherwise
modified from time to time in accordance with the terms of this Agreement,
the "Lease") with W12/14 Wall Acquisition Associates LLC (the "Landlord"),
covering certain premises more fully described in the Lease (the
"Premises");

       WHEREAS, Mortgagee provided or will provide permanent financing to
Landlord and other entities which is secured by, inter alia, first and
second priority mortgages (collectively, the "Mortgage") on the interests
of Landlord in the property described in Exhibit "A" attached hereto, of
which the Premises are a part (the "Property");

       WHEREAS,
 Mortgagee and Tenant mutually desire the subordination of
the Lease to the Mortgage and the recognition of the Lease by Mortgagee
upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth.

       NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the sum of One Dollar ($1.00) by
each party in hand paid to the other, the receipt of which is hereby
acknowledged, and in consideration of the mutual promises, covenants and
agreements herein contained, the parties hereto, intending to be legally
bound hereby, promise, covenant and agree as follows:

       1. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in the Lease,
the Lease and all estates, rights, options, liens and charges therein
contained or created thereunder is and shall be subject and subordinate to
the lien, terms, covenants, provisions and conditions of the Mortgage and
to all renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements and extensions
thereof, and to all advances made or to be made thereunder and all sums
secured hereby.

       2. If Mortgagee or any trustee for Mortgagee takes possession of the
Premises and/or the Property, as mortgagee-in-possession or otherwise,
forecloses the Mortgage, acquires title to the Property be deed in lieu of
foreclosure, or otherwise causes the Premises and/or the Property to be
sold pursuant to the Mortgage or any other security instrument given to
Mortgagee, Mortgagee agrees not to join Tenant as a party defendant in any
action to foreclose the Mortgage (unless an applicable law requires Tenant
to be made a party thereto as a condition to proceeding against Landlord)
or to terminate or affect the Lease nor to affect or disturb all rights of
Tenant under the Lease, including, but not limited to, the rights of
possession, occupancy and use of the Premises and the Property at the
rental and upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Lease, and the
right to exercise and enjoy all expansion and extension options (if any)
under the Lease so long as Tenant is not then in default under any of the
terms, covenants, or conditions of the Lease or this Agreement (after the
giving of any required notice and after the expiration of any applicable
cure period) and the Lease is in full force and effect.

       3. If Mortgagee succeeds to the interest of Landlord under the Lease
and/or to title to the Premises and/or the Property, or if anyone else
acquires title to or the right to possession of the Premises and/or the
Property upon the foreclosure of the Mortgage or by other sale pursuant to
the Mortgage, or upon the sale of the Premises and/or the Property by
Mortgagee or its successors and assigns after foreclosure or other sale
pursuant to the Mortgage or acquisition of title in lieu thereof or
otherwise, Mortgagee or its successors or assigns or the then owner of the
Premises and/or the Property after foreclosure or other sale pursuant to
the Mortgage (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Successor
Landlord"), and Tenant hereby agree to be bound to one another under all of
the terms, covenants and conditions of the Lease and Tenant agrees to make
full and complete attornment to Successor Landlord so as to establish
direct priority or estate and contract between Successor Landlord and
Tenant with the same force and effect as if the Lease were originally made
directly between Successor Landlord and Tenant; accordingly from and after
such event, Successor Landlord and Tenant shall have the same remedies
against one another for the breach of an agreement contained in the Lease
as Tenant and Landlord had before Successor Landlord succeeded to the
interest of Landlord; provided, however, that Successor Landlord shall not
be:

              (a)    liable for any act,  omission or  negligence  of any
prior landlord (including the present Landlord); or

              (b) subject to any claims, offsets or defenses which Tenant
might have against any prior landlord (including the present Landlord),
except for any claims, defenses or offsets expressly allowed under the
terms of the Lease and which accrue after Successor Landlord succeeded to
the interest of Landlord; or

              (c) obligated to cure any defaults of Landlord which
occurred, or to make any payments to Tenant which was required to be paid
by Landlord, prior to the time that Successor Landlord succeeded to the
interest of Landlord under the Lease; or

              (d) bound by any agreement, modification, termination or
surrender of the Lease made without the written consent of Mortgagee; or

              (e) bound by any rent or additional rent which Tenant might
have paid for more than the then current month or any termination payment
or other prepaid charge to any prior landlord (including the present
Landlord) except as required pursuant to the terms of the Lease; or

              (f) liable for any security deposited under the Lease unless
such security has been physically delivered to Successor Landlord; or

              (g) liable for any defects (latent, patent or otherwise) in
the design, workmanship, materials, construction or otherwise with respect
to the Premises and/or the Property; or

              (h) liable for or obligated to comply with or fulfill any of
the obligations of any prior landlord (including the present Landlord)
under the Lease or any agreement relating thereto with respect to the
construction of, or payment for, improvements on or about the Premises (or
any portion thereof), leasehold improvements, tenant work letter and/or
similar items, except the obligations of present Landlord pursuant to
Section 41 of the Lease with respect to the payment of the Construction
Payment to Tenant; provided, however that Mortgagee or Successor Landlord
shall not have any obligation to make any portion of the Construction
Payment to Tenant that it has already advanced to any prior landlord
(whether or not Tenant received such payment).

              If the Lease shall have terminated by operation of law or
otherwise as a result of or in connection with a bankruptcy case commenced
by or against Landlord or a foreclosure action or proceeding or delivery of
a deed in lieu, upon request by Successor Landlord, Tenant shall promptly
execute and deliver a direct lease with Successor Landlord which direct
lease shall be on substantially the same terms and conditions as the Lease
(subject, however, to the provisions of clauses (a)-(h) of this Section 3)
and shall be effective as of the date the Lease shall have terminated as
aforesaid.

       4. Although the foregoing provisions of this Agreement shall be
self-operative, Tenant agrees to execute and deliver to Mortgagee or to any
person to whom Tenant herein agrees to attorn, such other instrument or
instruments as Mortgagee or such other person shall from time to time
request in order to confirm said provisions.

       5. Tenant hereby warrants and represents, covenants and agrees that:

              (a) Mortgagee, in making any disbursements to Landlord, is
under no obligation or duty to oversee or direct the application of the
proceeds of such disbursements.

              (b) Tenant shall not prepay in excess of one month or
compromise payment of rent or other sums due or to become due under the
Lease except as required by the terms of the Lease.

              (c) Upon receipt by Tenant of a notice from Mortgagee that
Landlord has defaulted under the Mortgage and has failed to cure the
default within any applicable grace period set forth in the Mortgage and
requesting Tenant to henceforth make all payments under the Lease to
Mortgagee, Tenant shall thereafter pay directly to Mortgagee all rent and
other sums due and to become due under the Lease.

              (d) Tenant shall not alter or modify the Lease in any respect
or terminate or surrender the Lease without the prior written consent of
Mortgagee except in the event of a casualty as permitted by the Lease.

              (e) Tenant shall deliver to Mortgagee, in accordance with
Section 9 hereof, a duplicate of each notice delivered to Landlord at the
same time as such notice is given to Landlord.

              (f) Tenant is now the sole owner of the leasehold estate
created by the Lease and shall not hereafter assign or sublease the Lease
or any portion thereof except as permitted by the terms thereof

              (g) Except in the event of a casualty as permitted by the
Lease, Tenant shall not seek to terminate the Lease or claim partial or
total eviction or abate or reduce the rent payable under the Lease by
reason of any act, omission or default of Landlord without prior written
notice thereof to Mortgagee and the lapse thereafter of such time as under
the Lease was offered to Landlord in which to remedy the default after
which time Mortgagee, as its option, may remedy any such act, omission or
default with thirty (30) days after the expiration of such time as Landlord
was permitted to cure such default; provided, however, that with respect to
any default of Landlord under the Lease which cannot be remedied within
such time, it Mortgagee commences to cure such act, omission or default
within such time and thereafter diligently proceeds with such efforts,
Mortgagee shall have such time as is reasonably necessary to complete
curing such act, omission or default. If Mortgagee cannot reasonably cure
such act, omission or default until after Mortgagee obtains possession of
the Premises, Tenant may not terminate or cancel the Lease or claim partial
or total eviction or abate or reduce the rent payable under the Lease by
reason by such act, omission or default, until the expiration of a
reasonable period necessary for the remedy after Mortgagee secures
possession of the Premises. To the extent Mortgagee incurs any expenses or
other costs in curing or remedying such act, omission or default, including
without limitation, attorneys' fees and disbursements, Mortgagee shall be
subrogated to Tenant's rights against any prior landlord (including
Landlord). Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) Mortgagee shall have no
obligation hereunder to remedy any act, omission or default of any prior
landlord (including Landlord) and (ii) the cure period provided to
Mortgagee in this paragraph shall in no event be less than the period to
which Landlord or Mortgagee would be entitled under the Lease or otherwise
after similar notice, to remedy any act, omission or default of any prior
landlord (including Landlord).

              (h) This Agreement satisfies any condition or requirement in
the Lease, if any, relating to the granting of a non-disturbance agreement
with respect to the Mortgage and, or the extent that the Lease shall
entitle Tenant to notice of the existence of any mortgage and the identity
of any mortgagee, this Agreement shall constitute such notice to Tenant
with respect to the Mortgage and Mortgagee.

              (i) Upon and after the occurrence of a default under the
Mortgage, Mortgagee shall be entitled, but not obligated, to exercise the
claims, right, powers, privileges and remedies of Landlord under the Lease
and shall be further entitled to the benefits of, and to receive and
enforce performance of, all of the covenants to be performed by Tenant
under the Lease as though Mortgagee were named therein as Landlord. Tenant
shall be absolutely entitled to rely on any notice received from Mortgagee
and shall not be required to inquire as to whether there has been a default
under the Mortgage or whether Mortgagee is entitled to possession of the
Premises or receive payments under the Lease.

              (j) Notwithstanding Section 2 hereof, if the Lease provides
that Tenant is entitled to expansion space or any other space, Successor
Landlord shall have no obligation nor any liability for failure to provide
such expansion space or such other space if a prior landlord (including
Landlord), by reason of a lease or leases entered into by such prior
landlord (including Landlord) with other tenants of the Property, has
precluded the availability of such expansion space or such other space, but
this provision shall not alter, amend, waive or impair any rights Tenant
may have against such prior landlord.

              (k) Tenant agrees to enter into a subordination,
non-disturbance and attornment agreement with any lender which shall
succeed Mortgagee as lender with respect to the Property, or any portion
thereof, provided such agreement is substantially similar to the Agreement.

              (1) Tenant has not subordinated the Lease or its rights
thereunder to any other mortgage or lien. Tenant agrees not to subordinate
the Lease or any of its rights thereunder to any other mortgage or lien
without the prior written consent of Mortgagee.

       6. Except as specifically provided in this Agreement, Mortgages
shall not, by virtue of this Agreement, the Mortgage or any other
instrument to which Mortgagee may be a party, be or become subject to any
liability or obligation to Tenant under the Lease or otherwise.

       7. Anything herein or in the Lease to the contrary notwithstanding,
Successor Landlord shall have no obligation, nor incur any liability beyond
Successor Landlord's then equity interest of Successor Landlord, if any, in
the Premises for the payment and discharge of any obligations imposed upon
Successor Landlord hereunder or under the Lease, and Successor Landlord is
hereby released and relieved of any other obligations hereunder and under
the Lease. Tenant agrees that with respect to any money judgment which may
be obtained or secured by Tenant against Successor Landlord, Tenant will
look solely to the estate or interest owned by Successor Landlord in the
Property, and Tenant will not collect or attempt to collect any such
judgment out of other assets of Successor Landlord.

       8. Tenant waives the provisions of any statute of rule of law now or
hereafter in effect which may give or purport to give it any right or
election to terminate or otherwise adversely affect the Lease and the
obligations of Tenant thereunder by reason of any foreclosure proceeding in
respect of the Mortgage.

       9. All notices shall be given in writing and shall be effective for
all purposes if hand delivered or sent by (a) certified or registered
United States mail, postage prepaid, (b) expedited prepaid delivery
service, either commercial or Untied States Postal Service, with proof of

       SUBLEASE AGREEMENT (this "Sublease") made this 22nd day of July,
1999 by and BETWEEN THESTREET.COM., INC., a Delaware corporation having an
office at 2 Rector Street, New York, New York ("Sublessor") and W12/14 WALL
ACQUISITION ASSOCIATES LLC, a New York limited liability company having an
office c/o Stellar Management Co., 156 Williams Street New York, New York
("Sublessee").

STATEMENT OF FACTS

       Pursuant to the lease, and the amendments thereto, described on
Exhibit "A" attached hereto and incorporated herein (collectively, the
"Lease"), Rector Trinity Associates, LLC ("Landlord") has leased to
Sublessor a portion of the 13th and the entire 14th floors (the "Premises")
in the building known as 2 Rector Street, New York, New York (the
"Building").

       Sublessor and Sublessee desire to consummate the subletting of a
portion of the Premises consisting of the entire 14th floor of the Building
(the "Subleased Premises"), upon the terms and conditions of this Sublease.

       NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and
adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as
follows:

       1.     DEMISE; TERM; RENTAL:

       Sublessor hereby leases to Sublessee and Sublessee herein hires from
Sublessor the Subleased Premises,
 for a term (the "Sublease Term") to
commence on a date (the "Sublease Commencement Date") that is the later of
(a) thirty (30) days after written notice from Sublessor that vacant
possession of the Subleased Premises will be delivered to Sublessee and (b)
the actual date when Sublessor delivers broom-clean vacant possession of
the Subleased Premises to Sublessee; and to expire on the date that is one
day prior to the expiration date of the Lease (the "Sublease Expiration
Date"), at the annual fixed rentals set forth on Schedule "1" attached
hereto and incorporated herein. Tenant shall pay all installments of rent
in advance, on the first (1st) day of each and every calendar month during
the Sublease Term. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Sublease
Commencement Date occurs on a date other than the first day of a calendar
month, the fixed rent payable hereunder for said month shall be
appropriately pro-rated.

       2.     SUBLETTING AND ASSIGNMENT:

              (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 16 of the
Initial Lease (as defined on Exhibit "A"), Sublessee may, without the
consent of Sublessor, freely assign this Sublease or sublet the Subleased
Premises in whole or in part, separately or in combinations, to such
persons or entities, at such rentals and on such terms and conditions as
Sublessee shall determine for any period or periods of time provided the
term of any such subletting does not extend beyond the Sublease Expiration
Date. No such subletting or assignment shall relieve Sublessee from its
obligations hereunder.

              (b) (i) With respect to any further subletting by Sublessee
of all or any portion of the Subleased Premises (hereinafter collectively
called "Occupancy Leases" and individually an "Occupancy Lease"), Sublessor
agrees that, within five (5) days after written request of Sublessee for a
non-disturbance and attornment agreement accompanied by a copy of the
Occupancy Lease for which such agreement is requested, Sublessor will enter
into non-disturbance and attornment agreements with Sub-sublessees
(hereinafter called "Occupancy Tenants") provided that the pro-rata fixed
rent and additional rent payable under such Occupancy Lease is not less
than the fixed rent and additional rent payable under this Sublease.

       (ii) Any such non-disturbance and attornment agreement shall provide
substantially as follows:

       (A) So long as no default exists, nor any event has occurred, which
has continued to exist for such period of time (after notice, if any,
required by said Occupancy Lease) as would entitle the landlord under said
Occupancy Lease to terminate said Occupancy Lease, or would cause the
termination of said Occupancy Lease without any further action of said
landlord, or would entitle said landlord to dispossess said Occupancy
Tenant, said Occupancy Tenant shall not be joined as a party defendant in
any action or proceeding which may be instituted or taken by Sublessor for
the purpose of terminating this Sublease by reason of a default hereunder,
nor shall said Occupancy Tenant be evicted from the premises demised under
said Occupancy Lease, nor shall said Occupancy Tenant's leasehold estate
under said Occupancy Lease be terminated or disturbed, nor shall any of
said Occupancy Tenant's rights under said Occupancy Lease be affected in
any way by reason of any default under this Sublease, or any disaffirmance
or termination of this Sublease, provided, however, that Sublessor shall
not (i) be liable for any act or omission of any prior landlord under said
Occupancy Lease, or (ii) be subject to any offsets or defenses which said
Occupancy Tenant may have against any prior landlord under said Occupancy
Lease, or (iii) be bound by any rent or additional rent which said
Occupancy Tenant may have paid in advance for more than one month to any
prior landlord under said Occupancy Lease, or (iv) be bound by any
amendment or modification of said Occupancy Lease made without Sublessor's
prior written consent which consent Sublessor agrees not to unreasonably
withhold or delay; and

       (B) In the event of the termination or expiration of this Sublease
for any reason, said Occupancy Tenant shall be bound to Sublessor under all
of the terms, covenants and conditions of said Occupancy Lease for the
balance of the term thereof remaining and any extensions or renewals
thereof which may be affected in accordance with any option therefor in
said Occupancy Lease, with the same force and effect as if Sublessor were
the landlord under said Occupancy Lease, said attomment to be effective and
self-operative without the execution of any further instruments upon the
termination or expiration of this Sublease; and said Occupancy Tenant shall
promptly execute and deliver any instrument Sublessor shall reasonably
request to evidence such attornment; and

       (C) Said Occupancy Lease is, and shall at all times, continue to be
subject and subordinate, in each and every respect, to all rights, title
and interest of Sublessor under this Sublease.

              (c) Sublessee and any assignee or further subtenant of
Sublessee shall be permitted to make alterations, decorations and
installations in the Subleased Premises or any part thereof in accordance
with the applicable provisions of the Lease and any such alterations,
decorations and installations in such space therein made by Subleseee
and/or any such assignee or subtenant may be removed, in whole or in part,
by Sublessee or by such assignee or subtenant, at its option, prior to or
upon the expiration or other termination of such further sublease or this
Sublease, provided that Sublessee or such assignee or subtenant, at its
expense, shall repair any damage and injury to such space so caused by such
removal. If Sublessee or any assignee or subtenant of Sublessee
contemplates making an "Alteration" (as defined in Article 6 of the Initial
Lease) as would require Landlord's approval under the Lease, Sublessor's
approval shall not be required.

              (d) Upon the expiration or sooner termination of the Sublease
Term, Sublessor will accept the Sublet Premises in its then existing
condition.

       3.     INCORPORATION OF TERMS OF LEASE:

              (a) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Sublease
and except to the extent they are inapplicable to Sublessee or this
Sublease or are inconsistent with or modified by the provisions of this
Sublease, all of the terms, covenants, conditions and provisions of the
Lease are hereby incorporated in, and made a part of, this Sublease; and
such rights and obligations as are contained in the Lease are hereby
imposed upon the respective parties hereto, Sublessor herein being
substituted for the Landlord in said Lease, Sublessee herein being
substituted for the Tenant in said Lease and the Subleased Premises being
substituted for the Premises in said Lease; provided, however, that
Sublessor herein shall not in any event be liable to Sublessee for the
performance of any obligations which are the obligations of the Landlord
under the Lease, including without limitation, all obligations to provide
any services to Subtenant or to perform repairs or maintenance to the
Subleased Premises.

              (b) Except as herein otherwise expressly provided in this
Sublease, Sublessee shall not be obligated to pay the fixed and additional
rent which Sublessor is obligated to pay as Tenant under the Lease;

              (c) without limiting the generality of the foregoing the
subsections (a) and (b) for the purposes of this Sublease the following
provisions of the Lease are excluded from this Sublease: Sections 3.1, 4.1,
8.2, 9.1, 9.2, 13.3 and 18.3 and Articles 10, 19, 20, 30, 33, 40, 44, 45,
48 and 49 of the Initial Lease; the entire First Amendment (as defined in
Exhibit A); Sections 1, 4, 8 and 13 and Exhibit C of the Second Amendment
(as defined in Exhibit A); and the entire Third Amendment and Fourth
Amendment (both as defined in Exhibit A).

              (d) For purposes of this Sublease, the provisions of the
Lease are subject to the following modifications:

        (i) In all provisions of the Lease requiring the approval or
consent of the "Landlord", Sublessee shall be required to obtain only the
approval or consent of the Landlord and not Sublessor.

       (ii) In all provisions of the Lease making reference to "Landlord's
cost" or words of similar effect, Landlord's cost shall mean the cost to
Landlord and not Sublessor.

       (iii) This Sublease shall terminate automatically at the same time
that the Lease is terminated.

       4.     AS IS CONDITION:

       Sublessee acknowledges that it has made a full and complete
inspection of the Subleased Premises, and agrees to accept same on the
Sublease Commencement Date in its then "as is" condition. Sublessee
acknowledges that neither Sublessor, nor Sublessor's agent, has made any
representations or promises in regard to the demised premises.

       5.     ESCALATIONS:

       (a) Throughout the Sublease Term, Sublessee agrees to pay to
Sublessor, an amount equal to 71.85% of the amounts, if any, payable by
Sublessor to Landlord on account of Real Estate Taxes and Porters Wage
Escalation (as both terms are defined in the Lease). Additionally,
Sublessee shall be entitled to receive 71.85% of all credits to which
Sublessor shall be entitled as tenant under the Lease.

       (b) The amounts payable by Sublessee and the credits to which
Sublessee shall be entitled under this Article 5 shall be payable by
Sublessee to Sublessor or credited to Sublessee, as the case may be, at the
same time and manner as Sublessor is required to pay such charges to
Landlord or receive such credits from Landlord, under the provisions of the
Lease. The capitalized terms used in this Article 5 have the same meanings
as set forth in Article 3 of the Lease. Any payments to be made by
Sublessee to Sublessor and any credits to which Sublessee shall be entitled
under the provisions of this Article 5 shall be appropriately pro-rated to
reflect (1) the Sublease Commencement Date, and (ii) the Sublease
Expiration Date, as same may be extended pursuant to the provisions of this
Sublease.

       6.     COMPLIANCE WITH LEASE:

       Sublessor shall duly pay each installment of fixed and additional
rent under the terms of the Lease and will duly observe and perform all
terms and conditions of the Lease to the extent that such terms and
conditions do not expressly relate to the Subleased Premises and are not
provided in this Sublease to be observed or performed by Sublessee. The
provisions of Section 16.4.5 of the Lease are incorporated into this
Sublease by reference as if fully set forth herein.

       7.     BROKER:

       Sublessee and Sublessor covenant, warrant and represent that there
was no broker, consultant or finder, except Newmark & Company Real Estate
Inc. and Colliers ABR Inc. (collectively, "Brokers"), instrumental in
consummating this Sublease and that no conversation or negotiations were
had with any broker, consultant or finder except Brokers, concerning the
subletting of the Premises. Sublessor and Sublessee each agrees to hold
harmless and indemnify the other against any claims for a brokerage
commission, consultation or finder's fee and/or expenses arising out of any
conversations or negotiations had by the indemnifying party with any
broker, consultant or finder except Brokers.

       8.     BREACH BY SUBLESSOR:

       Anything in this Sublease to the contrary notwithstanding, if there
exists a breach by or of Sublessor of any of its obligations under this
Sublease and concurrently, a corresponding breach by the Landlord of its
obligations under the Lease exists, then and in such event, Sublessee's
sole remedy against Sublessor in the event of any such breach of obligation
under this Sublease shall be the right to pursue a claim in the name of
Sublessor against Landlord, and Sublessor agrees that it will at
Sublessee's expense, cooperate with Sublessee in the pursuit of such claim.
Sublessee shall defend, indemnify and save Sublessor harmless from and
against all costs, expenses, liabilities and damages (including reasonable
counsel fees) resulting from any claims or counterclaims that may be made
against Sublessor by Landlord in connection with or arising out of
Sublessee's pursuit of any claim against Landlord.

       9.     MODIFICATION OF LEASE:

       Sublessor agrees that without Sublessee's prior written consent, it
will not make any modifications of the Lease which would result in an
increase of any obligations or liability, or diminish the rights, of
Sublessor as Tenant thereunder and, correspondingly, result in an increase
of any obligations or liability, or diminish the rights, of Sublessee
hereunder.

       10. DIRECT PAYMENT TO LANDLORD; RIGHT OF OFFSET:

       Provided and for so long as Landlord so agrees, Sublessee shall make
all payments due to Sublessor hereunder directly to Landlord to be credited
by Landlord against amounts due under the Lease from Sublessor, as tenant
thereunder, to Landlord for corresponding items and Sublessee shall be
entitled to receive directly from Landlord all credits due hereunder from
Sublessor to Sublessee.

       11.    INSURANCE:

       In all insurance policies carried by Sublessee pursuant to the Lease
Sublessee shall name Sublessor and Landlord in the same capacity as the
Lease requires Landlord to be named in such policies.

       12.    BINDING EFFECT; AMENDMENTS:

       This Sublease shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the
parties hereto, their successors and assigns and may not be cancelled,
modified or amended orally, but only by a writing signed by the parties
sought to be charged.

       IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Sublease as of
the day and year first above written.

constitute a waiver of any breach of the performance of Tenant's
obligations under the Lease.

       3. Tenant shall remain liable, throughout the term of the Lease, for
the performance of all of the Tenant's obligations under the Lease,
including, without
 limitation, the payment of rent and additional rent due
under the Lease.

       4. Except as expressly set forth below, this consent shall not,
without limitation, constitute:

              A.    Landlord's consent to any assignment of the Lease or
Sublease or any further sublease of all or any part of the Subleased
Premises or any sublease of any other premises demised by the Lease;

              B.    Landlord's consent to the performance of any work in
and to the Subleased Premises, except after compliance, and in accordance
with, all applicable provisions of the Lease and the Building rules and
regulations governing tenant alterations;

              C.    A construction or an acknowledgment of the accuracy of
any recital or statement set forth in the Sublease;

              D.    Landlord's agreement to accept any surrender of the
Lease and/or the demised premises under the Lease or to grant any
non-disturbance or other like agreement for the benefit of the Subtenant;

              E.    Landlord's agreement to deal directly with Subtenant in
connection with the payment of any rent or additional rent due under the
Lease, furnishing of services, repairs, authorizations, equipment and
access pursuant to the Lease;

              F.    Landlord's recognition of any right of Subtenant to
enforce, or participate in the enforcement of, any rights of Tenant under
the Lease; or

              G.    Any limitation on the right of Landlord to amend the
Lease.

       5. Anything in the Lease, the Sublease or this letter to the
contrary notwithstanding:

              A.    Landlord agrees to accept directly from Subtenant all
payments due to Sublessor under the Sublease and to credit such payments
against amounts due under the Lease, provided same shall not be deemed or
construed as a release of Tenant from Tenant's obligations hereunder or the
acceptance of Sublessee as a direct tenant of Landlord. If there exists a
breach by or of Sublessor of any of its obligations under the Lease
resulting from a corresponding breach by the Sublessee of its obligations
under the Sublease, then Landlord agrees that its sole remedy against
Sublessor in the event of any such breach of obligation under the Lease
shall be the night to pursue a claim in the name of Sublessor against
Sublessee, and Sublessor agrees that it will, at Landlord's expense,
cooperate with Landlord in the pursuit of such claim.

              B.    Notwithstanding the provisions of the preamble to
Section 16.4 of the Lease, Landlord agrees not to unreasonably withhold or
delay its consent to a sublease or assignment to one (1) subtenant of the
whole portion of the Subleased Premises on the 13th floor of the Building
for substantially the remainder of the term of this Lease, provided no
default beyond any applicable grace period shall have occurred and be
continuing under the Lease and subject to such sublet or assignment
transaction's compliance with the balance of the conditions contained in
Section 16.4 of the Lease.

              C.    Landlord agrees to release to Tenant the Letter of
Credit portion of the existing security deposit currently held by Landlord.
Landlord shall continue to hold the cash portion of the security deposit
pursuant to the Lease.

              D.    Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 15.1 of the
Lease, Landlord agrees that Tenant shall have no obligation to remove its
fixtures from the Subleased Premises or to restore the Subleased Premises.

       6. Tenant and Subtenant hereby represent that true and complete
copies of the Sublease and all other accompanying documents between Tenant
and Subtenant have been delivered to Landlord.



       Please confirm your agreement to the foregoing by signing and
returning copies hereof.

                                CONFIDENTIAL
                AMENDMENT TO INTERACTIVE SERVICES AGREEMENT

       This Amendment to Interactive Services Agreement (this "Amendment"),
dated April 16, 1999, is made and entered into by and between America
Online, Inc. ("America Online"), a Delaware corporation with its principal
offices at 22000 AOL Way, Dulles, Virginia 20166, and TheStreet.com, L.L.C.
("Interactive Content Provider"), a limited liability corporation with its
principal office at Two Rector Street, New York, NY 10006. Defined terms
that are used but not defined herein shall be as defined in the Interactive
Services Agreement between AOL and Information Provider dated as of April
16, 1998 (the "Agreement").

       The parties wish to amend the Agreement as described below.

       It is therefore agreed as follows:

1.     Term.  The following is hereby added to the end of Section 6 of the
       Agreement ("Term"):

       "Commencing on April 16, 1999, the Agreement shall continue in full
       force and effect for a period of two hundred and ten (210) days (the
       "Negotiation Period") during which period the parties agree to
       negotiate in good faith over the terms and conditions of a new
       agreement or amendment to this Agreement (the "New Agreement"). This
       Agreement shall terminate upon expiration of the Negotiation
 Period
       (unless it is superseded or extended by the New Agreement or
       terminated early in accordance with the terms herein based on a
       breach of this Agreement)."

2.     Carriage  Fee.  The  following is hereby added to the end of 
       Section 1.5 of the Agreement ("Carriage Fee"):

       "During the Negotiation  Period,  ICP shall pay AOL $16,667.00
       per month in advance."

3.     Order of Precedence. This Amendment is supplementary to and modifies
       the Agreement. The terms of this Amendment superseded provisions in
       the Agreement only to the extent that the terms of this Amendment
       and the Agreement expressly conflict. However, nothing in this
       Amendment should be interpreted as invalidating the Agreement, and
       provisions of the Agreement will continue to govern relations
       between the parties insofar as they do not expressly conflict with
       this Amendment.

4.     Counterparts.  This Amendment may be executed in  counterparts,
       each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which together
       shall constitute one and the same document.



       IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Parties hereto have executed this Amendment
as of the date first written above.
