Now that investment banks are nearly extinct, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants tech companies to fill the void.
The mayor told reporters at a press conference about environmental initiatives on Thursday that the city is in talks with Facebook about opening a New York city office.
Funny thing is, Facebook, which is headquartered in Palo Alto, California, already has a New York office near Times Square. It’s one of Facebook’s 10 worldwide offices, spread out in locations like Chicago, Atlanta and Venice Beach, California and Dublin, Ireland.
Most of the U.S. offices are primarily sales offices, said Facebook spokesman Larry Yu.
