New York already has an Alphabet City, named for Avenues A, B, C and D just north of the lower east side of Manhattan. Now it will have an Alphabet City on the West Side as well. Phys.org reports:
Google's parent company Alphabet said Monday it was investing over $1 billion in capital improvements to establish a new campus in New York City.
In a blog post, Alphabet and Google CFO Ruth Porat wrote that it is leasing large office buildings in Manhattan's West Village neighborhood, the centerpiece of a campus more than 1.7 million square-feet large.
The new campus, which should be operational starting in 2020, will be known as Google Hudson Square and "will be the primary location for our New York-based Global Business Organization," Porat wrote.
