The Western Union Building
60 Hudson Street (formerly the Western Union Building) is a 23-story commercial building in Tribeca owned by the Stahl Organization. Completed in 1930 with an art deco style the building was designed by famous architect Ralph Walker. It currently serves as a major data hub and colocation center, where dozens of telecommunications companies route internet traffic and exchange information in a "meet-me-room" through fiber-optic lines. The building was made a landmark in 1991.
During 2015 the building owners enacted a series of renovations on several floors and undertook significant mechanical work on the building. In February 2016, a crane at the site collapsed as it was being secured, killing one and injuring three. Source: therealdeal.com
When it was built, Western Union relied on AT&T circuits as part of the Western Union network. There are many conduits connecting 60 Hudson to the AT&T Long Lines building at 32 Avenue of the Americas which was built just two years later in 1932. This in part explains why the two buildings became two of NYC's telecom hotels (in addition to 111 8th)
