Google is close to signing a lease in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood, about a block away from Apple.

The search giant is eyeing 131 Greene St., a roughly 4,100 square foot space, Crain's New York reports (via 9to5Google). Other nearby tenants include Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany & Co., and Louis Vuitton.

This would be Google's first-ever retail store. Until now, Google has relied on small stations inside retailers like Best buy to promote its Nexus and Chromebook products.

not being a New Yorker, my first thought when seeing the location-pictures was, where is the parking?

then, what will they charge for top ten search results?

then, who is going to hurry and put in a bagle/coffee shop right next door?

then,........ will the google-bus protestors block the whole street? :)

Will the retail workers also get 20% of their time to spand on outside projects, as well as the other Google perks?

Will all the workers wear Google Glass and greet all customers by name? I see all kinds of fun with this.
