Google Opens NYC Office, Has Kickass Cafeteria Menu and Sweet Lego Sculptures


krispy_kreme_burgerYesterday was the first official day at the new NYC offices of Google.

The company has three floors in a building that stretches from Eighth Avenue to Ninth Avenue and from 15th Street to 16th Street, a few blocks west of Union Square. The workspace is light and airy and built around the concept of working in teams, with people sharing offices and cubicles connected in groups. Along with a cafeteria and a game room, there are snack stations throughout the office.

The NYC offices were the base for the project that eventually became Google Maps.
