Google Office-NYC-Chelsea-Vintage Subway Train

For transit nerds, the NYC Google Office in Chelsea has a fun vintage train sitting in a common work space. The “Google Rapid Transit” train shown above is a recreation of what looks to us like the old elevated rail trains (any thoughts?). The Google “Special” train has a destination to Mountain View (Google’s headquarters in California) and the stations listed are both in Mountain View.

The rest of the office has other fun NYC specific details such as a red fire hydrant and street grate:

There’s even a conference room designed like a super-cramped NYC apartment!
