Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions a and b of section 11-224.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York or of any other law, any installment of real property tax that is ordinarily due and payable on January first, two thousand thirteen pursuant to paragraph b of subdivision 2 or paragraph b of subdivision 3 of section 1519-a of the New York city charter, with respect to eligible real property as defined in section two of this local law, shall be due and payable on April first, two thousand thirteen.  With respect to any such eligible real property, if the installment of real property tax that is due and payable on April first, two thousand thirteen under this local law is not paid in full on or before April first, two thousand thirteen, the commissioner of finance shall charge, receive and collect interest upon the amount of such installment not paid on or before such date, to be calculated from April first, two thousand thirteen to the date of payment.
§2.  For purposes of this local law, "eligible real property" shall mean any tax lot that contained, on January fifth, two thousand twelve, class one or class two real property as such classes of real property are defined in subdivision one of section eighteen hundred two of the real property tax law, on which any building has been designated by the department of buildings in accordance with section three of this local law.

(b) during the period beginning November first, two thousand twelve and ending November thirtieth, two thousand twelve, after inspection by the department, such building has been determined to require repairs or to have a restricted area and such determination has been indicated by a notation on such department's records and/or by the posting of a yellow sticker on the building, and during the period beginning December first, two thousand twelve and ending December twenty-eighth, two thousand twelve, after inspection by the department, has been determined to be seriously damaged and unsafe to enter or occupy or completely demolished as a result of damage caused by the effects of the severe storm that occurred on October twenty-ninth and thirtieth, two thousand twelve, and such determination has been indicated by a notation on such department's records and/or by the posting of a red placard warning on the building.
