  • 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 good news for New Yorkers is that Google is now considering more populated cities, such as San Jose, California (0.98 million) and Phoenix, Arizona (1.48 million).

    It may be too early to declare that New York City is the next Silicon Valley, but the evidence that we’re headed in that direction is hard to deny. Various neighborhoods across Manhattan have proven to be fertile breeding grounds for new tech start-ups like Foursquare Labs and Gilt Groupe, plus Google, Facebook, and Twitter have all opened offices here. Over the past 5 years, high-tech employment has risen by 30% to 90,000 jobs, and New York City recently surpassed Boston in tech venture capital raised. These developments are impeccably timed as well; both the Manhattan real esate sales market and the NYC economy as a whole are looking to non-traditional sources of activity to replace, or at least supplement, the declining activity of the financial sector.
