The Company is re-issuing in an updated format its historical financial
statements in connection with the adoption of Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of
Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS 144"). During 2002, the Company sold certain
properties and in compliance with SFAS 144 has reported revenue, expenses and
gain on sale from these properties as discontinued operations for each period
presented in its quarterly reports filed since the date of the sale
(including the comparable period of the prior year). Under SEC requirements
for transitional disclosure, the same reclassification as discontinued
operations required by SFAS 144 following the sale of properties is required
for previously issued annual financial statements for each of the three years
shown in the Company's last annual report on Form 10-K, if those financials
are incorporated by reference in subsequent filings with the SEC made under
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, even though those financial
statements relate to periods prior to the date of the sale. This
reclassification has no effect on the Company's reported net income available
to common shareholders or funds from operations ("FFO"). The Company elected
to re-issue these historical financial statements at this time in preparation
for the issuance of pro-forma financial statements giving effect to the
acquisition of 399 Park Avenue, which the Company is required to file on Form
8-K. This Report on Form 8-K updates Items 6, 7 and 8 of the Company's Form
10-K to reflect those properties sold during 2002 as discontinued operations.
All other items of the Form 10-K remain unchanged. No attempt has been made
to update matters in the Form 10-K except to the extent expressly provided
