The loss of something like 60 Hudson shouldn't cause more than an annoying route flap in your network.
My point being that building a network which doesn't have more than an annoying route flap, if /both/ 60 Hudson and 111 8th avenue are lost, is extremely hard (*) (especially if it has a transatlantic component). And that's true even if you have your own fiber. (*) hard means that it isn't compatible with existing topologies, and building new ones is expensive. Alex Bligh Personal Capacity.
