New York is more and more techy & sexy!
Amazon is opening its first physical store in the city, on 34th Street, right between the flagship Macy’s store and the Empire State Building.
IBM has just announced the official opening of its Watson headquarters at 51 Astor Place to serve local startups: moreover, it will invest $100 million in startups using Watson.
And on November 6 YouTube will open its new space at the Chelsea Market. “People think of YouTube as a West Coast company, but we’re here because New York is at the intersection of many creative communities — fashion, film, big media companies and of course, Madison Avenue,” said Lance Podell, the global head of YouTube Spaces, to The New York Times.
