Manhattan’s Internet Vault

I guess this is transportation related… transportation of data. Anyway, an interesting article on the Hurricane Sandy damage to Manhattan’s internet infrastructure. Some staggering photos of the telecom vaults in use in NYC. I’ve been inside some cool telecom and electrical vaults, but these are beyond anything I’ve ever seen.

Unfortunate that the pumps to keep air in the copper insulation for flood protection were located on floors that made them vulnerable to flooding.
