I'll just answer everyone at once rather than cluttering the list with a 
bunch of replies...

Yes, we're very lucky, this building is a free-for-all as far as labor 
(and more importantly, letting us sell access to other tenants).  Very 
happy with our choice so far.  Have an FOC of 7/27 for an ethernet drop 
from ConEd to connect back to our PoP at 111 8th Avenue.

After reading, I think I'll just rule out local suppliers (unless anyone 
knows of someone cheap and local in NNJ) and ask for mail order houses.

George G. mentioned cablewholesale.com, nice prices, $68/1000' CAT5E.  I 
did notice that there and on a few other places I found via Google there 
is no brand name mentioned.  Should this be a concern?

I'm also looking for someone that carries a full line of Hubbell 
jacks/panels/IDFs, any pointers?

Thanks all!

This client is more than a client, so I'm not really looking to do this to 
make any more than the time that involves me, just FYI.
