The 2006 MySpace Outage

MySpace's prolonged outage in July of 2006 was caused by a power failure at 1200 W 7th. A heat wave caused a utility blackout and the UPS infrastructure at the building failed. Source: NBC News.

Rising Realty has since invested in the infrastructure of the building, and there have been no further reported incidents.
