Google Chelsea Market Office

NYC Chelsea-Market

Google was one of the first major tech companies to open offices in New York City, fueling what has become since then a serious tech boom on the East Coast. According to the NY TImes, Sergey Brin, co-founder and president of technology, joked that it’s New York’s offices started out in 2000 from the UWS apartment of Tim Armstrong, now CEO and Chairman of AOL.

Since then, it has expanded to two offices in NYC: at 111 Eighth Avenue, and 75 Ninth Ave, the Chelsea Market Office. The theme of Google’s Chelsea offices is “urban parks” — so there is a lot of exposed brick, dirty windows (with signs saying they are left dirty on purpose), graffiti font, metal and AstroTurf-ish grass. The company recently leased an additional 75,000 square feet in the building, where it already had 320,000 square feet.
