This Amendment amends a statement dated June 2, 1997 ("Original
Statement") filed by BRT Realty Trust ("BRT") relating to the
Common Stock, $.01 par value (the "Common Stock") of Tappan Zee
Financial, Inc., a Delaware Corporation (the "Company").

Item 3.   Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

As of the date hereof, BRT has acquired a total of 119,950 shares
of Common Stock of the Company at a net aggregate cost of
$1,683,093.69.

BRT has acquired 13,000 shares of Common Stock of the Company since
the Original Statement at a cost of $223,250.  The $223,250 was
derived from BRT's working capital.

It should be noted that on October 17, 1996 BRT entered into a $25
million revolving credit agreement ("Credit Agreement") with CS
First Boston Mortgage Capital Corp. ("First Boston").  The Credit
Agreement will mature on October 17, 1998 with the right for the
Trust to extend the Credit Agreement for two additional six month
periods.  Interest is charged on the outstanding principal balance
at the lower of LIBOR plus 3% or the prime lending rate plus 1%,
adjusted monthly.  As collateral for advances made by First Boston
under the Credit Agreement, the Trust has pledged certain mortgages
receivable and real estate owned, and the stock of all but two of
its subsidiaries.  At the date hereof $1,800,000 is outstanding
under the Credit Agreement.  Funds may be taken down under the
Credit Agreement to purchase shares of the Company's Common Stock.


Item 5.   Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a) BRT owns, as of this date, 119,950 shares of Common Stock of
the Company, constituting approximately 8.01% of the 1,497,062
shares of Common Stock outstanding.

(b) BRT has sole voting and dispositive power with respect to the
119,950 shares of Common Stock it beneficially owns.

(c) BRT purchased in open market transactions 13,000 shares of the
Company's Common Stock as follows:

          Date            No. Of Shares       Price Per Share
