Google Opens Up A Big Office in New York

After a year of speculation, Google has opened a new, bigger office in Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan. The company has had an ad sales team in the city since 2000, but this is the biggest such effort from the company… it is the company’s largest advertising sales team and also has the largest engineering group outside of the main office in Mountain View, CA.
Google’s New York-based advertising team has been instrumental in securing big partnerships, including recent deals with MySpace and AOL, said Tim Armstrong, VP of advertising sales.
Google also added an engineering staff to New York City in 2003. Since then, more than 100 engineering projects have been housed in New York, including: Google Maps, Google Spreadsheets, parts of Google Checkout, Google Blog Search and Google Mobile Search.
