    Last week, Google identified nine metro areas where the company will explore a possible expansion of its Google Fiber internet and television service. With Google Fiber service in semi-large cities such as Kansas City, Missouri and Austin, Texas, the tech scene wondered what the next move for Google would be. 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). The bad news is that Google still has no plans to bring its blazing fast internet to New York City.

  • Hudson Yards Part 1: An Overview By Phil Ryan | September 01, 2011

    The Hudson Yards, one of the signature development projects in the works for Manhattan, is a vast undertaking, requiring the coordination of a multitude of city organizations. Upon completion, the Hudson Yards’ numerous skyscrapers are expected to contain thousands of residential units, millions of square feet of retail and office space, and copious amounts of waterfront and green space.

However, she immediately faced the challenge of trying to enter into a largely chauvinistic world that seemed unable, or at the very least, unwilling, to accept her into its community. So she took matters into her own hands...or perhaps more aptly, her fists of fury.
