To clarify, the TELEHOUSE facility inside 25 Broadway is in generator
power.  Other building tenants, such as Deloitte Touche and Neve
Yerushalyim, are still without power.

Last I heard, 111 8th Avenue (and nearby facilities, including
Chelsea Markets and the Level(3) "Mondo Condo" on 10th Avenue?) is
also without utility power, but doing ok on generator for the most
part.

MFN sent this out:

  "As a result of the major power outage in New York and other cities,
  our generator system at LGA1 (NY1) is experiencing heating issues.
  Critical loads are currently running on UPS systems alone.  We are
  working aggressively to get the generator system repaired, and
  believe we will be able to do before the UPS systems loose their
  capacity.  We do have several hours with which to work, and do not
  believe that this situation will become customer affecting, however
  it does have the potential to become customer affecting."

I'm not sure how accurate the "several hours" figure is.   Presumably
they have a large battery plant, or a lot of empty racks...
