What I am still not clear on is the state of 140 West Street, which

Street CO. 140 West withstood the same impact that befell 7 WTC, one
would think. It's on the corner of West Street and Veesey, separated
from what was 7 WTC by a narrow alley. If anyone knows the operational
status of 140 West, please post.
I called in a stack of trouble tickets a while ago. One upside is that VZ

All the circuits I called in, while homed out of the Broad Street CO, were
routed through the West St CO. The gentleman I spoke with said the
building had structural damage, no power, and that some of the breeches to
the structure opened up into equipment rooms. To repair the circuits, he
said they will be re-engineered. The folks that do that were apparently
housed in the WTC. There was no ETR on any of the lines.
