Net income attributable to Kimco rose to $127 million from $90 million last year. The increase was due in part to a gain of more than $26 million from the sale of operating properties.

Kimco's funds from operations, an alternative measure of real estate trust earnings, rose to $183 million, or 44 cents per share, up from $141.2 million -- 35 cents per share -- from the same quarter last year.

On Long Island, Kimco owns the Airport Plaza shopping center in Farmingdale.
