Explanation of Responses:
1. These shares of Common Stock are held by the Wight Foundation, a charitable organization, over which Mr. Wight holds sole voting and investment power. Mr. Wight disclaims any pecuniary interest in these Common Shares.
2. The Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of these securities, and this report shall not be deemed an admission that the Reporting Person is the beneficial owner of these securities for the purpose of Section 16 or any other purpose.
3. These Common Shares are held by Mr. Wight's spouse. The filing of this Form 4 shall not be deemed an admission that Mr. Wight is the beneficial owner of the Common Shares.
4. These Common Shares are held by Interstate Properties, a New Jersey general partnership of which Mr. Wight is a general partner. The filing of this Form 4 shall not be deemed an admission that Mr. Wight is the beneficial owner of these 5,603,548 Common Shares, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest.
5. On May 23, 2013, the reporting person received a grant of restricted units (the "Restricted Units") of Vornado Realty L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"), the operating partnership of Vornado Realty Trust (the "Company"). The Restricted Units are a class of units of the Operating Partnership that following the occurrence of certain events and upon vesting are convertible by the holder into an equivalent number of Class A Units of the Operating Partnership. Class A Units are redeemable by the holder for cash or, at the Company's election, Common Shares of the Company on a one for one basis or the cash value of such shares.
6. These Restricted Units vest immediately. These units are not transferable until the reporting person is no longer serving as a member of the Company's Board of Trustees, other than in connection with a conversion of the Restricted Units to Class A Units and a redemption of such Class A Units for Common Shares. Any Common Shares issued in connection with such a redemption must be held by the reporting person until such person is no longer a member of the Company's Board of Trustees.
