Manhattan, New York is home to many major technology companies but an area called Hudson Square continues to see an influx. Hudson Square is home to some of the largest buildings in the vicinity, for example 111 Eighth Avenue and the Chelsea Market. Along with these large buildings comes large names in the industry. Google announced it had purchased St. John’s Terminal for $2.1 billion and Disney plans to have their new headquarters in a 1.2 square foot b building.
