The data center sits at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, which spans the East River. A few blocks south of the city's Chinatown and just north of the South Street Seaport, the vicinity of the data center is home to a growing number of knowledge workers, according to Nicole LaRusso, senior VP of planning and economic development with the Downtown Alliance.

Oh, John, I'm so disappointed!
Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?
I mean, here it is, the last Monday of the last month of the 1st Quarter of the New Year.
When? When? When?

This is the New York Telephone Central Office at 375 Pearl Street, originally built to replace the central office at 104 Broad St. It never did replace 104 Broad St, after Howard Brunke (Later of TCG) found a way to get more cables into the vault at 104 Broad St. Too Bad, after Hurricane Sandy, I bet they wished they had replaced 104 Broad St.
