New York is such an amazing place to visit and base yourselves if you are a company. We just love it and there are so many reasons why, however this article is limited to five reasons you should love New York and its culture.
Many consider the area to be the greatest city in the world currently, and you’d be strongly pressed to disagree. However, all cities shine brightly and have their positives. Below we talk about why many tech-based companies choose to base themselves in New York.
1. The transport networks
Technology-based companies put in a lot of consideration as to where they should base themselves. It is vital to the success of the business in terms of culture and employees being able to come together to get the best out of their facilities. The reason New York is top of the list for these companies is its public transportation network. For the audience reading this blog, you’ll be delighted to learn that the public transport technology is also getting upgraded. That is what is really exciting. There are now countdown clocks in every subway station across the station (why did it take so long?) and the exciting new venture of electric buses! Who wouldn’t want to live or set themselves up in an area like this?
2. State-of-the-art technology everywhere
A quick walk down the high street in New York and you can immediately see why a tech-oriented person would fall in love with the place. There is a reason why organisations such as PIRATE have set up their tech-oriented music and rehearsal studios in the area. The state-of-the-art technology available is allowing the music scene in New York to thrive. Forgive us for the technology focused excitement but these music studios really are state of the art. If you fancy yourself as a musician or a podcaster you should check them out.
Across New York, the studio provides everything you need on a plate in terms of technology. All you would need is a computer. It’s a tech savvy musician’s dream. Covering both Brooklyn and Queens, you’re never too far away either. The equipment available is state of the art which is expected of most music studios. You’ve got monitors, microphones, keyboards, interfaces, headphones and many other pieces of equipment. It’s great to see.
3. Amazing venues for live events
Continuing with the music and technology theme, New York boasts a couple of venues which make the experience truly fantastic. If you’re in the Manhattan area you need to make sure you check out the Beacon Theatre which is a sight to behold. You may be a little apprehensive about visiting now but definitely put it on your bucket list. The variety of arts and the different cultures on show in New York is something you just have to experience.
Not only is the venue a perfect host, but the music on show is also brilliant. With surround sound technology, you really do get a feel for the music and atmosphere. When going to bars and clubs becomes a thing again, you shouldn’t hesitate twice about checking it out. You may even be able to get there on an electric bus!
4. Thriving businesses
Being a place that most people want to live and a must visit for tourists, local authorities have been able to attract big business to the area. Not only do these companies and organisations want to take advantage of the technology available in such a modern area, but they are also proud to be at the start of an area which is continuing to grow. Timeout.com notes that in the last year alone, New York saw a net gain of 4,387 rent-stabilized units, highlighting how quickly the area is growing!
5. A lovely multicultural area
Technology is a universal language. Whether you are from China, Russia, the United States or the UK, coding language and other types of tech, it does not matter. A speaker is a speaker in any country, it does the job. However, it is still important to note that New York is one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the area. This allows for the technology sector to continue to boom. It also helps with attracting tourism which is good for both business and in terms of revenue. In fact, it would be silly not to talk about some of the figures. Across the five boroughs of NY, the inhabitants speak roughly 800 languages.
Effectively, there are many reasons why we love New York but the fact it caters to nearly everybody is a major reason why technology companies are beginning and continuing to set up shop in the area. You’re never far away from a booming business or a high tech studio.
