On November 17, 2009, the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York ("Bank") announced that Mr. Michael M. Horn and Mr. Joseph J. Melone (the "Elected Directors") had both been elected by the Bank’s membership on November 13, 2009 to serve as Independent Directors on the Board of Directors ("Board") of the Bank commencing on January 1, 2010. The term of Mr. Horn will be for four years; the term of Mr. Melone will be for two years. (Both of the Elected Directors currently serve on the Board; their current terms expire on December 31, 2009.) A copy of a report being sent to Bank members providing detailed information about this matter is attached as Exhibit 99.1.

The election of Mr. Horn and Mr. Melone took place in accordance with the rules governing the election of Federal Home Loan Bank directors contained in the Federal Home Loan Bank Act and in the related regulations of the Federal Housing Finance Agency ("FHFA"), the regulator of the Federal Home Loan Banks.

At the time of this filing, neither of the Elected Directors has been named to serve on any committee of the Board for 2010; further, whether the Elected Directors are expected to be named to serve on any committee of the Board for 2010 has not yet been determined. (Mr. Horn is currently Chairman of the Board and serves on the Board’s Executive and Audit Committees. Mr. Melone currently serves on the Board’s Audit, Government & Congressional Affairs and Strategic Planning Committees.)

Compensation of the Elected Directors is expected to be in accordance with a 2010 Director Compensation Plan ("Compensation Plan") which will be voted on by the Board at a later time. Details regarding the Compensation Plan will be disclosed after the Compensation Plan is adopted in an appropriate filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
