These telephone employees comprise the gmirwai ntlniiiiistmtive and execu- tive forces of the cmupnny‘s Long Island area. This concentration of liinlior tuliniuistratire personnel in a s:|u;ie buildin3.; is not only an eco- nuiuicnl zirruiigeiuent from the stand- point oi’ ollicient operation. but also xunkes av-.iiiul)le space in which addi- tional ceutrul oliice facilities nray be installed as requir.ed, in buildings oc- cupied by oilico forces transferred to the new building. Work on the hentiquarters building ‘began in the fall of 1929 with the de- molitiou of twelve tenement buildings that i‘ormorly occupied the site. which extends 100 feet on Wiiloughby Street and 255 feet on Bridge Street. Founda- tion work started in November of that year and the building's steel struc- ture was ‘begun in June. 1930, with the brick work commencing at month later. Within n year ot that date the ‘building was completed and tenants began moving in last 'une. The moving period required over tour months, in which time consider- able necessary equipment was brought from the older buildings and installed in the new ot This work pro- gressed with a minimum of interfer- same material. These entrances lead into lobbies that give access to the main corridor from which the two banks of elevators are reached. Twelve elevators in the two banks provide a swift and convenient sys- tem of transportation to the higher lloors. A large business oiiice is lo- cated at the Willougliby and Bridge Street corner while diagonally oppo site at the other end of the iirst floor is nu auditorium seating 400. A cafeteria, soda shop and lounge for employees is located on the lirst of three basement levels, with kitchens. boiler rooms. refrigeration macliiner-y.~ ventilators and pumps contained in the two lower basements. From the second to the twentieth floor a vast area is being utilized by the general o forces. while from the twentieth to twenty-second space is provided for the managerial o with the executive o lo- cated on the twenty-third Ad- ditional general o space is at- forded on the next two floors, while .the twenty-sixth and twenty-seventh house elevator equipment and water supply tanks. in the Long Island area there are now about 760,000 telephones, or -one- quarter or all the telephones in New York State.\tiore than twice as many telephones as were in service on ‘the island ten years ago.
