Supported by ByMichael Kimmelman Nov. 12, 2018 The innovation myth used to involve the back of a suburban garage or an office park in Silicon Valley. The tech industry was incubated not on the mean streets of the big city, but in sleepy hamlets like Murray Hill, N.J., and Mountain View, Calif. So with reports of Amazon’s plan to split HQ2, its second headquarters, between Crystal City, a part of Arlington, Va., just outside Washington, and Long Island City, in Queens, what are we to make of tech’s steady migration to marquee cities?

At 1,070 feet, the tower is the second-tallest building west of the Mississippi. Mr. Benioff moved Salesforce into it in January, right before his software company became the largest private employer in the city. Mr. Benioff, who is 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, is as hard to miss as his tower. He’s forceful, flamboyant and quotable, a fourth-generation San Franciscan who has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into his city. This week he stepped out onto a broader stage, purchasing Time magazine with his wife, Lynne, for $190 million. The longtime summit of East Coast journalism has now, after a stop with temporary owners in Des … [Read more...] about A San Francisco Tech Mogul Buys a Fabled Slice of New York Media
