TELECOM Digest OnLine - Sorted: What's Historic?

What's Historic?
Thu, 24 Mar 2005 20:14:58 EST

This item forwarded from another list (and which apparently
originated in a newspaper) calls Basking Ridge "historic."

To many of us 195 Broadway would be historic. Basking Ridge was
a johnny-come-lately and I remember the panic among Manhattan workers
and how AT&T held driving lessons for employees from NYC.

Verizon has agreed to pay about $125 million for the sprawling Basking
Ridge campus that once served as the historic headquarters of AT&T,
according to five people with knowledge of the transaction.

Verizon, the nation's biggest telephone company, eventually could move
its operations center and up to 1,000 employees from Manhattan to the
10 interconnecting buildings in Somerset County, said the sources.
