in annual installments or as term bonds or as a combination thereof.
Bonds and notes shall bear interest at such rate or rates, be in such
denominations, be in such form either payable to bearer with coupons or
registered, carry such registration privileges, be executed in such
manner, be payable in such medium of payment, at such place or places
within or without the state, and be subject to such terms of redemption,
with or without premium, as may be provided by any such resolution of
the authority. Any signature, manual or facsimile, of an officer of the
authority appearing on bonds or notes or coupons shall be valid and
sufficient for all purposes whether or not such officer shall then be in
office. The authority may also provide for the authentication of the
bonds or notes by a trustee or fiscal agent.

4. The resolution authorizing the issuance of any bonds or notes may
provide that such bonds and notes may be payable at such place or
places, within or without the state, may bear interest at such rate or
rates, may be payable at such time or times, may be in such form and
evidenced in such manner, and may contain such other provisions not
inconsistent herewith, including provisions as to reserve or sinking
funds, security for the payment of bonds or notes, redemption or
refunding of bonds or notes, events of default, remedies of bondholders
or noteholders, appointment of trustees or fiscal agents, custody,

prices, at public or private sale, in such manner and from time to time
as may be determined by the authority, and the authority may pay all
expenses, premiums and commissions which it may deem necessary or
advantageous in connection with the issuance and sale thereof. No bonds
or notes of the authority may be sold at private sale, however, unless
such sale and the terms thereof have been approved in writing by (i) the
comptroller where such sale is not to such comptroller, or (ii) the
mayor where such sale is to such comptroller.

shall be liable personally on the bonds or notes or be subject to any
personal liability or accountability by reason of the issuance thereof.

7. Issuance by the authority of one or more series of bonds or notes
for one or more purposes shall not preclude it from issuing other bonds
or notes in connection with the same sports facility or any other sports
facility, but the proceedings whereunder any subsequent bonds or notes
may be issued shall recognize and protect any prior pledge or lease,
made for any prior issue of bonds or notes unless in the proceedings
authorizing such prior issue the right is reserved to issue subsequent
bonds or notes on a parity with such prior issue.

8. All bonds or notes authorized under this section and the interest
coupons applicable thereto are hereby made and shall be construed to be
negotiable instruments.

9. The authority shall have power out of any funds available therefor
to purchase (as distinguished from the power of redemption herein
provided) any bonds or notes of the authority, and all bonds so
purchased shall be cancelled.
