Verizon Communications Inc. (About this sound listen ) (/vəˈrzən/ və-RY-zən), commonly known as Verizon, is an American multinational telecommunications conglomerate and a corporate component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.[6] The company is based at 1095 Avenue of the Americas in Midtown Manhattan, New York City,[2] but is incorporated in Delaware.

When the Justice Department of the United States mandated AT&T Corporation to break up the Bell System, one of the seven Baby Bells was Bell Atlantic, the original name for Verizon.[7] Bell Atlantic came into existence in 1984 with a footprint from New Jersey to Virginia, with each area having a separate operating company (consisting of New Jersey Bell, Bell of Pennsylvania, Diamond State Telephone, and C&P Telephone).

As part of the rebranding that the Baby Bells took in the mid-1990s, all of the operating companies assumed the Bell Atlantic name. In 1997, Bell Atlantic expanded into New York and the New England states by merging with fellow Baby Bell NYNEX. Although Bell Atlantic was the surviving company, the merged company moved its headquarters from Philadelphia to NYNEX’s old headquarters in New York City. In 2000, Bell Atlantic acquired GTE, which operated telecommunications companies across most of the rest of the country that was not already in Bell Atlantic’s footprint. Bell Atlantic, the surviving company, changed its name to “Verizon”, a portmanteau of veritas (Latin for “truth”) and horizon.[8]

In 2015, Verizon expanded into media ownership by acquiring AOL,[9][10] and two years later it acquired Yahoo!. AOL and Yahoo were amalgamated into a new division called Oath Inc.

As of 2016, Verizon is one of three companies that had their roots in the former Baby Bells. The other two, like Verizon, exist as a result of mergers among fellow former Baby Bell members. One, SBC Communications, bought out the Bells’ former parent AT&T Corporation and assumed the AT&T name. The other, CenturyLink, was formed initially in 2011 by the acquisition of Qwest (formerly named US West). Its Verizon Wireless subsidiary is the largest U.S. wireless communications service provider as of September 2014, with 147 million mobile customers.[11] And as of current, it is the only publicly-traded telecommunications company to have two stock listings in its home country, both the NYSE (VZ; main) and Nasdaq (VZA; secondary)[12] As of 2017, it is also the second largest telecommunications company by revenue after AT&T.[13] [emphasis added]

May 28, 2018, 10:30pm.  About Me.  Walking on Atlantic Avenue, Beauty Road, on my way back to where I live, YWCA Brooklyn on Atlantic Avenue between Third and Fourth avenues, I asked a young man if I could take a picture of his cap—I explained to him that I am trying to become a fashion photographer.

Military pattern, red circle red check, upside down R, red/orange combo.  I did not mention to him that, the red check on his cap reminded me of Verizon’s red check (or that, at the moment Stop & Shop cashier opened the cash register after totaling my groceries, another employee [who was standing ready to put my groceries in bags but I asked her not to] said loudly, PATRICIA—she was calling the cashier at the check out next to where I was).  He is now a plaintiff in a legal case against Berkshire Hathaway, Accenture, Bain, Citi, Verizon and other corporations including the Mormon Church of Satan’s entire corporate portfolio. Stop & Shop employees, Atlantic Terminal Brooklyn, are also plaintiffs.   cc “Patricia Rodriquez” and the rest of the Mormon Danites/Danettes who used my checking account number (in the year 2006) and Astoria Bank routing number, to write blank Commerce Bank checks, or some such convoluted concoction.  cc all Mormon barristers.
