What is Silicon Alley? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Computing fundamentals glossary:

Silicon Alley is the growing community of Internet and computer-oriented businesses, mainly startup companies, in the New York metropolitan area, particularly Manhattan's downtown. The term is a play on "Silicon Valley," northern California's computer development community (with perhaps overtones of New York's earlier "Tin Pan Alley").
