Good news for New Yorkers! Amazon plans to split its new headquarters into two locations into two different cities and one of them could be New York.
It's been a yearlong search for the online shopping giant and in addition to the main headquarters in Seattle, the New York Times is reporting that Amazon is nearing a deal to move to Long Island City in Queens. The second location will be Crystal City in Arlington, Va. and will create 25,000 jobs in each location.
“I’ll change my name to Amazon Cuomo if that’s what it takes,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “Because it would be a great economic boost.”
“It would be a great economic boost,” he said.
He also joked last week that he would be willing to rename Newton Creek to the Amazon River.
