Default Amazon cancels plans to build New York headquarters

Quote:
Amazon is ditching its plans to build a new headquarters in New York after facing backlash from members of the community."After much thought and deliberation, we've decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens," Jodi Seth, an Amazon spokeswoman, said in a statement.

I wonder if they will double down on their place in Virginia. I think it is smart for them to pull out of NY, since it is an expensive place and they'd have a lot of local opposition.

Good point. Maybe Jeff Bezos plans to buy London after it collapses due to Brexit and make it the second HQ, as a bizarre independent state where he can avoid paying any corporate taxes at all. Oh, I guess they can do that here in the US instead!
