New York Is a Genuine Tech Hub (and That Was Before Amazon) - The New York Times

Mr. Nevill-Manning found his developers and opened the engineering office in New York. Today, Google employs 7,000 people in the city, and more than half are engineers and technical staff. The Google story mirrors the rise and evolution of New York as a genuine tech hub.
