Google is Buying a New York City Office Building for $2.1 Billion

Google is buying a new office building on Manhattan's West Side for $2.1 billion, the most expensive sale of a U.S. office building since the pandemic started. From a report: The tech giant is already leasing a 1.3 million-square-foot building in Hudson Yards, also on the West Side, which it has an option to buy. New York City is the company's second largest office location. The move highlights a long-term push for a return to office work, even as companies across the industry delay their reopen...

Semi- is the only summer left to us

In the effort to pretend we’re having a normal summer, my clan has been lucky. With the weather, for instance, my wife and I winging it home from New York City hours before that hurricane hit and shut down the Springsteen / Santana / Costello concert as a flood flowed through Central Park. We never got bad heat whether upstate or down in two weeks in the Empire State, always missing it by a day. Everyone wore masks on the plane, in restaurants, on the subway, in museums; many people wore them un...

Reader Ride Report: Discovering the Fanno Creek Trail

(A relaxing, carfree experience. Photos and story by Mike Perham) Note: This report was submitted by longtime BikePortland reader, supporter (and recently co-owner!) Mike Perham. My route.

Travel: What it’s like to visit Kauai right now

Like a breath of fresh tropical air, rules that have scared away mainlanders from visiting what many consider as Hawaii’s most beautiful island have been significantly loosened. Kauai recently reaching Tier 5 status, the least restrictive of Hawaii’s five-level system of coronavirus orders, has the tourist-hungry Garden Island embracing visitors with a sigh of relief and heartfelt “e komo mai!” The “welcome” mat at Lihue Airport, Kauai’s primary gateway, still comes with strings attached — maski...

Little Island and Brooklyn Bridge Park, Here I Come!
