dont forget too that a good part of transatlantic
fiber is backhauled through the holland tunnel into
lower manhattan, one of many reasons why all the
co-los are on the lower west side (in addition to
cheap buildings with heavy load capacity). also one of
the (again many) reasons i presume the tunnel has
remained closed.

according to Telegeography, Inc of Washington DC most
of the BIG capacity cables like Mercus-1 and TAT14
come ashore in New Jersey around Manasquan. its mostly
the older stuff that arrives on Long Island.
