A massive, heavily fortified skyscraper that has puzzled New Yorkers for years — sitting windowless and unlit in Lower Manhattan since 1974 — is reportedly hiding a very dark secret.
On the surface, the ominous structure — known as the “Long Lines Building” — serves as a giant telecommunications hub for the New York Telephone Company, which is an AT&T subsidiary.
But a recent investigation conducted by The Intercept indicates that it might actually house a covert surveillance mega-center, where millions upon millions of phone calls, faxes and emails are intercepted daily by the National Security Agency.
