Brett Tabke posted a thread at WebmasterWorld linking to a Village Voice article named Google: The New Port Authority. In short, Google won't comment now, but it appears Google is looking to occupy 111 Eighth Avenue (link to Google Maps & Birds Eye view at Live Local, a building built in 1932 to house the Port Authority - it is huge.

Eustace left out the part about the 300,000 square feet of space that Google plans to occupy in the heart of the city. It's a poorly kept secret that the company will soon open a huge new office and networking facility at 111 Eighth Avenue. Google's new base in the city will dump a sizable influx of Google employees into the social and professional environment of Chelsea and the West Village.

Honestly, I have walked and driven by that building a bunch of times, I didn't even notice it.

But folks at WebmasterWorld are impressed with the building and the rumors that Google will move their NY offices their, in order to expand.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

I worked for WebMD and we occupied the 7th floor and Nike is on the 6th Floor. The building is massive - I used to ride my motorized scooter through the halls.
