Google Opens New Office in NYC



I received an invite to the opening of Google’s new Manhattan offices but had to pass due to a full schedule – it looks like I should have found the time….

The office space at 111 Eighth Ave., which real estate experts estimate is costing the company $10 million a year in rent, is similar in design and functionality to its headquarters in Mountain View. This includes a fully equipped game room that would make any high school boy drool. Foosball, air hockey, ping-pong and pool tables are all available for employees to take a break and “blow off some steam.” The room also has a video game area, bean bag chairs, massage chairs and even a full basketball hoop setup.
