111 Eighth Avenue, designed by Lusby Simpson and completed in 1932 to house the Port Authority of New York, is one of the largest buildings in the city, an architectural marvel, and a landmark. Looming like a 15-story locomotive over Chelsea, the mammoth red-brick structure occupies an entire city block between Eighth and Ninth avenues and 15th and 16th streets—a footprint larger than two football fields. And a footprint big enough for Google's giant steps.
They have very tight security. You get photographed when you go inside.
Only a handful are known to have made it out. In an exclusive interview with Penn and Teller, the lucky escapees said they had told Google they had been clicking on their own AdSense ads, so Google kicked them out.
We know that in New York, this is the bare minimum for an office building. I'm sure visitor access will be highly restricted and other New York-style security requisites such as reflective tints on the windows may be in order.
Google's blockbuster invasion of New York and its impending takeover of nearly two floors of the massive building aim to make New York City a key component of its little-publicized global expansion
first graf made it sound like they bought the whole building. but that doesn't seem to be the case...
