Google New York's Trendy neighbourhood

We already gave you a look inside Google New York’s offices, but what about the outside?

As part of our “Google New York” week, TBI set out to see what it’s like to work in this trendy neighbourhood.

Situated in between Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, Google New York offers plenty of cool things to do right outside the office.

We scoped out a few hot spots where Googlers can eat, drink, or just hang out when they’re not — you know — Googling.
