ConEdision released this statement this evening:

> another portion of lower Manhattan. The area is bordered by Dover Street
> on the north, the East River to the east, William Street to the west
> and Wall Street to the south. 

> Earlier, electric power in lower Manhattan was lost to an area bordered
> by Thomas Street to the north, Broadway on the east, the Hudson River

> options. Con Edison is in close contact with city officials. 

There are several telco hotels near and within those bounderies, but I
don't have specific information about individual buildings.
