Having been with Southwestern Bell, not NY Telephone, I had no idea where that company had its headquarters, but having visited NY several times for the then AT&T I could tell you its headquarters were at 195 Broadway (usually just "195") and Long Lines headquarters were at 32 Avenue ot the Americas (the only place I ever heard of that gave its address as "Avenue of the Americas," almost everyone else gave their address as "Sixth Avenue."

I would suggest most of the things our esteemed moderator suggested originated at "195" (Broadway), not at a single regional AT&T subsidiary.

OK, from now on I'll list Verizon's address as

1 Pretentious Place Valhalla, NY

.. in the hopes that readers stop confusing a building with what happens inside it!
