Amazon Exits Planned NYC HQ2

Amazon Pulls Out of Planned New York City Campus

Amazon said on Thursday that it was canceling plans to build a corporate campus in New York City. The company had planned to build a sprawling complex in Long Island City, Queens, in exchange for nearly $3 billion in state and city incentives.

Amazon’s full statement is at the link (and will probably be repeated all over the Net, if you’re blocked by a NYT paywall).

Well, Amazon folded quickly.

And the Mayor and Governor probably have cardiac issues now that they have to face twin budget deficits without Amazon’s future employment income.
