Facebook has moved into its brand-new Astor Place office space, and there's a high probability that you're going to 'Like' it more than your own office.
Business Insider and Curbed NY have given the world a glimpse into the two-story, Frank Gehry-designed space, and it's pretty much everything you'd expect. Located in the Wanamaker Building, the 185,000sqft office houses 500 employees and features wide-open layouts, exposed ceilings, and plenty of custom art & gaming tables.

If you happen to work at Facebook, or go to the office unveiling party tonight (which of course Facebook is making a 'thing'), you'll immediately discover an actual Facebook Wall, where coworkers are encouraged to post messages (or sign their name... or maybe let everyone know their relationship status...). From there, you'll also discover a host of other super-sweet features inside the building, like a coffee bar and Desimone’s café -- run by Head Chef Nate Eckhaus (if that name sounds familiar, it's because he's worked at places like Eleven Madison Park and Blue Smoke).
If employees need a little time to themselves, they can brush up on their literary game in the office library, which is paneled with Douglas fir. Facebook truly knows the only way to work.
Pete Dombrosky is an Editorial Assistant at Thrillist and he still thinks his office is pretty neat, even without a café. Follow him on Twitter to find out why.
