Google has finalized the purchase of the largest building in Manhattan. We talked about the rumor of this purchase back in October.
At the time we also noticed that despite the apparent importance of the building to Google, their own Place Page for the site had it located in Brooklyn. Yikes!
Well, maybe you just need to buy the building to actually get something that even looks like support from Google as it relates to Place Pages. We are happy to pass along that the new Google Manhattan location is indeed in Manhattan and not Brooklyn. Here’s the updated result as of today.
Phew! Is that a relief!
Now, Google, about that support issue ………..
UPDATE: This is an interesting article that references Wired’s take on why this building was critical to Google. It’s a major fiber hub. Now that makes sense.
