Tenant agrees further that it will, during the entire term of this Lease, keep the Landlord informed of the telephone numbers of at least three persons or parties having keys to the demised premises in order that, in the event of an emergency which requires Landlord to have access to such facilities during other than regular business hours, Landlord may arrange with such persons or parties to be admitted to the Demised Premises, provided, however, that if Landlord is unable to arrange for admittance to the Demised Premises during any such emergency, or if time does not permit the making of such arrangements, Landlord shall have the right to gain admittance to the Demised Premises by forcibly or otherwise breaking into the Demised Premises, and the sole liability of Landlord to Tenant in such event shall be that Landlord shall be obligated to repair all damage caused by such breaking in within a reasonable time after the occurrence thereof. 3 <PAGE> 47. ELECTRICITY A. Type of Service: At the commencement of the term hereof, electric current shall be supplied to the Tenant at the Demised Premises on a submetered basis. B. Submetered Electric Charges: Landlord shall furnish electricity to the Demised Premises on a sub-metered basis and Tenant covenants and agrees to purchase the same from Landlord or Landlord's designated agent at charges, terms and rates set, from time to time, during the term of this Lease by Landlord, which shall not be higher than those specified in the service classification in effect on January 1, 1970 pursuant to which electric current was sold from the public utility corporation servicing Manhattan Buildings; provided, however, said charges shall be increased in the same percentage as any percentage increase in the billing for electricity for the entire Building, by reason of increase in electric rates, charges, fuel adjustment or service classifications, or by taxes or charges of any kind imposed thereon, or for any other such reason, subsequent to January 1, 1970. Any such percentage increase in Landlord's billing for electricity shall be computed by the application of the average consumption (energy and demand) of electricity for the entire Building for the twelve (12) full months immediately prior to the rate change, or any changed methods of or rules on billing for same, on a consistent basis to the new rate and to the service classification in effect on January 1, 1970. If the average consumption of electricity for the entire Building for said prior twelve (12) months cannot reasonably be applied and used with respect to changed methods of or rules on billing, then the percentage increase shall be computed by the use of the average consumption (energy and demand) for the entire Building for the first three (3) months after such change, projected to a full twelve (12) months' and that same consumption, so projected, shall be applied to the service classification in effect on January 1, 1970. Where more than one meter measures the service of Tenant in the Building, the service rendered through each meter may be computed and billed separately in accordance with the provisions hereof. Bills therefore shall be rendered at such times as Landlord may elect and the amount, as computed from a meter, shall be deemed to be, and be paid as, additional rent, In the event such bills are not paid within ten (10) days after the same are rendered, or in the event of any monetary default (in excess of 10 days) of the terms of the leases, Landlord may, giving Tenant 5 days to cure the default, discontinue the service of electric current to the demised premises without releasing Tenant from any liability under this lease and without liability of Landlord or its agents, servants or employees for any damage or loss sustained by Tenant by such discontinuance of service provided. However, that in the event Landlord shall discontinue furnishing electric service to the demised premises pursuant to the preceding provisions of this sentence and Tenant shall pay to Landlord such delinquent amounts, then, provided Landlord shall not have exercised its right to terminate this Lease, Landlord shall resume providing such electrical service to the Demised Premises within reasonable time. Notwithstanding anything to the foregoing, the electricity charges will be the Con Edision rate schedule of "SC#4, rate 1" plus 15%. ALl electric bills will be rendered on a regular monthly schedule but, if any invoicing is late or missed the Tenant is still responsible for its payment as specified herein. C. Electric Capacity: Tenant's use of electric current in the Demised Premises shall not at any time exceed the capacity of any of the electrical conductors and equipment in or otherwise serving the Demised Premises. Tenant shall not make or perform or permit the making of, any alterations to wiring, installation or other electrical facilities in or serving the Demised Premises without the prior consent of Landlord in each instance. Should Landlord grant any such consent, all additional risers or other equipment required therefore shall be installed by the Landlord and the cost thereof shall be paid by Tenant upon Landlord's demand. D. Landlord's Liability: Unless the same shall arise due to the malicious act of Landlord in default of any of the terms and conditions of this Lease, Landlord shall not be liable in any way to Tenant for any failure or defect in the supply or character of electric energy furnished to the Demised Premises by reason of any requirement act or omission of the public utility company servicing the Building with electricity or for any other reason whatsoever. 4 <PAGE> E. Electric Discontinuance: Landlord reserves the right to discontinue furnishing electric energy to Tenant at anytime upon sixty (60) days written notice to Tenant, and from and after the effective date of such termination, Landlord shall no longer be obligated to furnish Tenant with electric energy, provided, however, that such termination date may be extended for a time reasonably necessary for Tenant to make arrangements to obtain electric service directly from the public utility company servicing the Building. If Landlord exercises such right of termination, this Lease shall remain unaffected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect; and thereafter Tenant shall diligently arrange to obtain electric service directly from the public utility company servicing the Building, and may utilize the then existing electric feeders, risers and wiring servicing the Demised Premises to the extent available and safely capable of being used for such purposes and only to the extent of Tenant's then authorized connected load. Landlord shall be obligated to pay no part of any cost required for Tenant's direct electrical service. F. Electricity Tax: If any tax is imposed upon Landlord's receipts from the sale or resale of electricity to Tenant by any Federl, State or Municipal Authority, Tenant convenants and agrees that where permitted by law, Tenant's pro rata share of such taxes shall be passed on to and included in the bill of, and paid by Tenant to Landlord. G. Electrical Consultant: In all matters relating to an annual rent increase and additional rent pursuant to this article the findings of an electrical consultant mutually-selected by the Tenant and the Landlord shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties. 48. NO ITEM 49. REAL ESTATE TAX ESCALATION: Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additioal rent, tax escalations in accordance with this Article. A. As used in this Article, the following definitions shall apply: 1. The term "base year tax" as hereinafter set forth for the determination of real estate tax escalations shall mean the New York City real estate tax year commencing on July 1, 1998 and ending on June 30, 1999. Once the base amount is established (upon receipt of the 98/99 tax bill from NYC), the amount will become permanent and no downward revision will be acceptable. 2. The term "The Percentage" shall be deemed to mean 5.3 percent. 3. The term "The Building Project" shall mean all of the land together with the improvements now and hereafter thereon known as 240 West 35th Street, New York, New York. 4. The term "comparative year" shall mean the respective twelve (12) months following the base tax year, and each subsequent period of twelve (12) months. 5. The term "real estate taxes" shall mean the total of all taxes and special and other assessments and/or vault charges levied, assessed or imposed at any time by any governmental authority upon or against The Building Project, and also any tax or assessment levied, assessed or imposed at any time by any governmental authority in connection with the receipt of income or rents from said building project to the extent that name shall be in lieu of all or a portion of any of the aforesaid taxes or assessments, or additions or increases thereof, upon or against said Building Project. If, due to a future change in the method of taxation or in the taxing authroity, or for any other reason, a franchise, income, transit, profit or other tax or governmental imposition, however, designated, shall be levied against Landlord in substitution in whole or in part for the real estate taxes, or in lieu of additions to or increases of said real estate taxes, then such franchise, income, transit, profit or other tax or governmental imposition shall be deemed to be included in the definition of "real estate taxes" for the purpose hereof. 5 <PAGE> As to special assessments which are payable over a period of time extending beyond the term of this Lease, only a pro rata portion thereof, covering the portion of the terms of this Lease unexpired at the time of the imposition of such assessment, shall be included in "real estate taxes". If, by law, any assessment may be paid in installments, then, only a pro rata portion thereof, covering the portion of the term of this Lease unexpired at the time of the imposition of such assessment, shall be included in "real estate taxes". If, by law, any assessment may be paid in installments, then, for the purposes hereof (a) such assessment shall be deemed to have been payable in the maximum number of installments permitted by law and (b) there shall be included in real estate taxes, for each comparative year in which such installments may be paid, the installments of such assessment so becoming payable during such comparative year, together with interest payable during such comparative year. 6. The phrase "real estate taxes payable during the base tax year" shall mean that amount obtained by multiplying the valuation actually used by the City of New York of the land and building of The Building Project (whether same be actual or a transitional assessment), for purposes of billing real estate taxes during the base tax year by the base tax year rate for each $100.00 for such valuation. B. Increase Charge: In the event that the real estate taxes payable for any comparative year shall exceed the amount of such real estate taxes payable during the base tax year, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, as additional rent for such comparative year, an amount equal to The Percentage of the excess. By or after the start of the comparative year following the base tax year, and by or after the start of each comparative year thereafter, Landlord shall furnish to Tenant a statement of the real estate taxes payable during the base tax year. If the real estate taxes payable for such comparative year, exceed the real estate taxes payable during the base tax year, additional rent for such comparative year, in an amount equal to The Percentage of the excess, shall be due from Tenant to Landlord. Tenant's obligation to pay the amount herein provided for shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Lease. C. Payment Conditions: The Percentage shall be due and payable within ten (10) days after Landlord shall have delivered to Tenant a statement setting forth the amount equal to the Percentage of the excess and the basis therefor. Bills for such Taxes shall be sufficient evidence of amount, for the purpose of calculating the Percentage. In the event Tenant fails to pay its proportionate share when due, Landlord shall be entitled, with respect thereto, any and all remedies to which Landlord may be entitled under this Lease for default in the payment of rent. The failure of Landlord to bill Tenant for the additional rent due in any fiscal year shall not prejudice the right of Landlord to subsequently bill Tenant for such fiscal year or any subsequent fiscal year. D. Recomputations: Should the real estate taxes payable during the base tax year be reduced by final determination of legal proceedings, settlement or otherwise, then, the real estate taxes payable during the base tax year shall be correspodingly revised, the additional rent thereto paid or payable hereunder for all comparitive years shall be recomputed on the basis of such reduction, and Tenant shall pay to Landlord as additional rent, within ten (10) days after being billed therefore, any deficiency between the amount of such additional rent as theretofore computed and the amount thereof due as the result of such recomputations. Should the real estate taxes payable during the base tax year be increased by such final determination of legal proceedings; settlement or otherwise, then appropriate recomputation and adjustment likewise shall be made. E. When Due and Estimated Payment: If the term of this Lease commences on a day which is not the first day of a comparative year, then the additional rent due hereunder for such comparative year shall be a proportionate share of said additional rent for the entire comparative year, said proportionate share to be based upon the length of time that the term of this Lease will be in existence during such comparative year. Upon the date of any expiration or termination of this Lease (except termination because of Tenant's default), whether the same be the date herein above set forth for the expiration of the term or any prior or subsequent date, a proportinate share of said additional rent for the comparative year during which such expiration or termination occurs shall immediately become due and payable by Tennant to Landlord, if not theretofore already billed and/or paid. 6 <PAGE> The said proportionate share shall be based upon the length of time that this Lease shall have been in existence during such comparative year. Landlord shall, as soon as reasonably practible, compute the additional rent due form Tenant, as aforesaid, which computations shall either be based on that comparative year's actual figures or be an estimate based upon the most recent statements prepared by Landlord and furnished to Tenant. F. Billing Delay: Any delay or failure of Landlord in billing for any additional rent shall not constitute a waiver of or in any way impair the continuing obligation of Tenant to pay such additional rent. G. When Payable: At Landlord's discretion, billing and payments may be made and required each month commencing with the tenant taking possession of the premises during each Lease Year Tenant shall, in addition to other payments under this Lease, pay to Landlord, on account of the amount to become due and payable by Tenant pursuant to this Article 1/12 of Tenants share of the Landlord's estimate for Real Estate Taxes during the next year. H. Payment Adjustments: When the actual Real Estate taxes are known, if the payments made by Tenant pursuant to Paragraph G of this Article exceed the amount actually due to Landlord for such Tax Year pursuant to this Article, such excess shall, at the option of Landlord, either be paid to Tenant or be credited (without interest) against the next ensuing payments provided for in said Paragraph G, except that if no such payments shall be due or become due, such excess shall be paid (without interest) by Landlord to Tenant. If the amount payable by Tenant for such Tax Year pursuant to this Article exceeds the payments made by Tenant pursuant to Paragraph G of this Article, Tenant shall pay the difference within ten (10) days after Landlord furnishes tenant with a statement for such Tax Year. I. Reduction and Refund: In the event the real estate taxes for any comparative year are subsequently reduced as a result of a final determination of a legal proceeding, settlement or otherwise, then upon Landlord's receipt of the refund from the taxing authority, the Tenant shall receive the appropriate re-computation and adjustment, including payment to Tenant of its proportionate share of the net amount of such refund of such Real Estate Taxes which may be received by Landlord or Landlord otherwise shall give Tenant credit against other monies due Landlord from Tenant; with the understanding, however, that if a comparative year goes below the base year there shall be no recomputation or adjustment in Tenant's favor. This clause shall not survive termination of this lease. 50. RENT PAYMENT APPLICATION: Regardless of the amount paid or payment specifications of the Tenant, all rent or additional rent received will be applied a) first to late fees (see lease clause 51) b) second to bounced check charges (see lease clause 59) c) third to attorney's fees (see lease clause 59) d) fourth to arrears, with the oldest arrears paid-down first, and e) then to current amounts that are due. 51.

B. Further Instrument: The parties agree that the provisions for attornment hereinbefore set forth do not require the execution of any further instrument. However, if such lessor or mortgagee of which Tenant agrees to attorn, as aforesaid, reasonably requests a further instrument expressing such attornment, Tenant agrees to execute same promptly and if Tenant fails to do so, Tenant hereby appoints Landlord Tenant's attorney-in-fact to execute such instrument for and on behalf of Tenant. 53.
