For those of you who don't live in New York, this does not sound like a big deal. But for the Ogilvy folk it will be like moving to Siberia.
Currently, Worldwide Plaza is surrounded by restaurants and bars and movie theaters, and there's a subway station right there in the basement of the building.
Over on 11th Avenue there's ... a Sunoco gas station and a motorcycle dealership.
This photo from a real estate publication makes the new block look kind of cool, but beneath it I've posted a shot of the other side of the street. There isn't even a Starbucks!
Worst of all, here's a Google map of the distance between the nearest subway station and Ogilvy's new HQ. It's nearly three quarters of a mile. Nice walk in the summer, but in winter, with the wind blowing off the ice-choked Hudson River (only a block away), it's going to feel like Scott's trek to the Antarctic.
