“People who work here are able to enjoy the Empire State Building’s urban campus and state–of-the-art amenities, which include six unique on-site dining and cuisine options with more to follow and the city’s largest tenant-only fitness center and conference center. We couldn’t be happier that LinkedIn chose to make this move with us.”
