SL Green Comments on ISS Recommendation in Support of Reckson Acquisition.

NEW YORK -- Following the recommendation by Institutional Shareholder Services ("ISS") that Reckson Associates Realty Corp (NYSE:RA) shareholders vote "FOR" the proposed merger with SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE:SLG), SL Green President & CEO Marc Holliday issued the following comments:

"We're extremely pleased that ISS did a thorough and impartial review of the pending transaction and has concluded that it merits shareholder support. This development represents another significant step forward for us. Many major Reckson shareholders have indicated to us that they intend to vote in favor of the deal at Reckson's November 22, 2006 special meeting of shareholders.

"Assuming that the merger is approved, as expected, we hope to complete it in early January. We look forward to having Reckson's shareholders come on board as shareholders of SL Green, which has produced the highest total returns of any U.S. office REIT for each of the past three years. We will work hard on their behalf to achieve superior results."
