Amazon is Coming to New York City

Amazon’s arrow now points to New York City.

Earlier in 2019, Amazon scrapped its plans to open HQ2, the name it gave its NYC headquarters. This December announcement emphasized that the company will receive no tax breaks or financial inducements for the new office project.

Amazon already has over 3,500 employees in New York City and an additional 5,000 workers in warehouses in the area.
