Facebook is coming to the East Coast – fitting nicely into Mayor Bloomberg’s Plans to turn NYC into the next leading high-tech city in the World.
From the Ny Times:
“We want the next Facebook to start here,” Mr. Bloomberg said. High-tech jobs in the city have grown by more than a third over the past five years, the mayor added, noting his goal to make New York “the world’s No. 1 hub for information technology and social media.”
[..] Facebook announced on Friday that it planned to open an engineering office in New York City in early 2012, establishing the company’s first such outpost beyond the West Coast.
