Power outage in NYC?  No problemo!

During the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, many buildings were completely out of commission due to power outages.  The storm prevented many financial firms from conducting basic business, as well as more complex operations such as trading.    In an effort to protect themselves from future incidents, many New York City based hedge fund, private equity, and boutique financial service tenants are now considering buildings with backup generators.  Below is a list of Class A Buildings With backup generator capacity.
