Gawker is temporarily down because the 57th Street Crane just flooded our servers with sea foam, or something. Back with you shortly. — Gawker (@Gawker) October 29, 2012 
Mediaite is temporally down. Our NYC based Data center is down due to Hurricane Sandy. We will be back shortly. — Mediaite (@mediaite) October 29, 2012 Other major data hubs located south of 36th Street include 111 Eighth Avenue (the Google building), 60 Hudson Street, 32 Avenue of the Americas, and Intergate.Manhattan (375 Pearl Street). Officials in New York are bracing for tonight’s high tide, which is coinciding with the landfall of Sandy further south along the New Jersey shore. The National Hurricane Center projects the storm surge from the storm could exceed 11 feet in lower Manhattan, which could lead to flooding of manholes and even the subway system. “Water levels at the Battery have been rising quickly and are now over 10 feet,” Con Ed reported on Twitter.
