It is possible to get a potential difference between buildings caused by grounding impedance. The tie wire bleeds that off. Could be as high as 50 -100 volts and wouldn't be stopped by flipping breaker off. So grabbing the neutral could be interesting.

Ask me how I know
2000 F250 7.3 CC 20+ MPG @ 10000 #
2013 Golf tdi 50+ mpg
1988 Ranger EV Volt batts>> 17,000 MPG and climbing. Apart for rebuild.
