According to below article from WSJ Google and Amazon rumored to hire 12k and 25k jobs in NYC the upcoming years.

Anyone with insights to what teams going to be located there? And where? Interesting moving back from West to East-Coast.

      You don't necessarily need to live in Manhattan. The apartments in Jersey City and Brooklyn are cheaper than that in Bay area and commute is only about 30 minutes by subway which doesn't get jamed like highway in California.

      Why isn't 4-5k per month rent possible for an L4 or L5?? Chelsea seems to be a pretty awesome area.

      Not to mention that cost gets split if with housemates or a girlfriend / spouse..

      We need a tech hub so we can constantly hire and pivot out 10% of our pool. That means only existing tech hub.

    Will Google finally allow more L3 and L4's to transfer into the NYC office?

      L3 and L4 are peasants that shouldn't be given the privilege to move to NYC.

      Min TC to move to NYC is $500k

      Have you been to NYC? If not, then please don't spread the fake news. Median household income there is just 70K. You can have a descent life with 150K in NYC and luxury life for over 200K TC.

      I had lived in NYC for 3 years. Luxury apartment in Manhattan costs 4k a month. You don't need a car in NY so you save a lot of $ from car maintenance and gas cost. The food costs about the same. So you still get lots of savings after paying rent and everything for 200K salary. There are tons of artists and musicians live in NYC for under 60K a year.

      Thatโ€™s the definition of decent life, not luxury

    Great place. Much better connected than Midwest.

    You're asking the richest guy in the world to put his company somewhere. Of the richest guy of the top 2 richest companies can't establish a big center in the big Apple, nobody else can
