Best Office Space for Tech and Media Companies Downtown NYC

Downtown NYC provides an excellent venue for tech and media companies because of its existing communications infrastructure. In the past many offices were occupied by financial firms that required high-speed communications. Beginning in 1996 these buildings were upgraded for the “Plug and Go” program which attracted hundreds of internet start-ups.  Today, fiber connections are present in most commercial properties. However, the connectivity at 55 Broad Street and 75 Broad Street exceed most other buildings.
