  • Why Doesn’t NYC Have Google Fiber? By Tim Sheehan | February 27, 2014

    Last week, Google identified nine metro areas where the company will explore a possible expansion of its Google Fiber internet and television service.

The bad news is that Google still has no plans to bring its blazing fast internet to New York City.

  • 35 XV Reveals Its Future Self By Janna Allen | March 21, 2013

    Once Xavier High School sold off its unused air rights to Alchemy Properties, the Chelsea neighborhood was unsettled. Rumors of a hotel going up within the neighborhood were being whispered on the streets back in 2008. Residents were perturbed due to thoughts of losing a quiet neighborhood in lieu of a busy hotel, and protested vehemently.
