“Additionally, the vast amount of nearby transit options will make it easy for Tiffany’s employees to travel up to its flagship store on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street; the corporate HQ is also only a short walk away. For 4K Media, it was important for its headquarters to be near similar companies and in close proximity to mass transit options that grant easy access to the area’s international airports.”
