Inside the Internet

 Photo: Jim Henderson

OHNY invites you to an extremely rare look inside one of the Internet's major hubs, the historic AT&T Long Lines building at 32 Avenue of the Americas.

As ephemeral and immaterial as the Internet may seem, it is composed of physical things–wires and boxes and switches–that are housed in buildings all over the world. Built as one of the centerpieces of a globe-spanning telecommunications infrastructure, 32 Avenue of the Americas has since been reinvented as a key interconnection point for high capacity data networks.

Andrew Blum, journalist and author of Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet, and John Gilbert, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of building owner Rudin Management, will lead a tour.


Tickets to this event are non-refundable. Should you be unable to attend, the full price of unused tickets may be treated as a donation to openhousenewyork and is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
