Facebook leases huge office in NYC

Facebook has just made a huge bet that people will return to work with the leasing of The Farley building which used to serve as the main post office building in Manhattan. This lease adds another 730,000 square feet bringing the total to 2.2 million square feet in Manhattan’s West Side. This area is becoming a tech corridor with the rest of FAANG (minus Netflix) also owning office space there.

However there is one huge problem… we’re in the middle of a pandemic and may be halfway through a paradigm shift towards permanent work from home. If/when all of this is over, are people still going to spend hours get ready, commute to work, go up to the office, coming home then doing it all over again?

Second are people even still going to want to live in New York City? I can see some of the potential turn offs with the city being crowded and expensive during a global pandemic and recession. Taylor also mentioned how the city smells bad but the only thing more garbage than NYC streets are Taylor’s takes. I’m proud to be from nearby Long Island and I go back up to the city at least once a year. New York City is the pinnacle of culture, arts, food, nightlife, finance and soon to be technology as well.

I think Facebook and other tech giants are making the right bet and ultimately the office space will be a useful asset for them!

  1. Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!

  2. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

    Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll
    be book-marking and checking back often! y2yxvvfw cheap flights

  4. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    you get the issue solved soon. Cheers

    much more useful than ever before.

    a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start

    Too cool!

  8. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. But think about if you added
    some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    niche. Good blog!

    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  31. I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you
    could space it out better?
