Google NYC Office-Vintage Postcard Wall Spells Out Google-Meatpacking-Chelsea Market-2

Here’s a fun fact even some Google employees don’t know about their New York office, which is full of New York City-inspired decor. In the 9th Avenue entrance, there’s a wall of vintage postcards across from the elevator bank. Most people just take in the cool postcards (if it all) but don’t realize that they’re laid out to spell out “Google” when viewed just a few steps back, by showing the back side of the postcards.

Among the great finds on this wall are skyscrapers that no longer exist, like The Singer Building, some of the world’s tallest buildings like The Woolworth Building and civic landmarks like Grant’s Tomb and the Statue of Liberty. You’ll also see some buildings that still exist but look completely different, like One Times Square.
