Not Manhattan, everything there's underground and more expensive.
Bronx we can do poles. I guess ConEd are the guys to talk to.

I'm talking about contracting a fiber run to a carrier neutral colo with
either title or a long term right.

Yes, I know it's a PITA. Right of Way, Municipality Access Agreements, 
and a seriously expensive installation with maintenance to boot.

But looking over the books, if it costs less than 100k to do, it'd pay 
itself off in 2-3 years and leave us with a hell of a lot more bang for 
the buck.
