Amazon Drops Plans to Build Headquarters in New York City

Washington Post, Feb. 14, 2019–Robert McCartney, Jonathan O’Connell
The company issued a statement saying it did not intend to reopen its search for a second headquarters at this time, but would continue with plans to put at least 25,000 jobs in Arlington in Northern Virginia and 5,000 in Nashville. New York was scheduled to get 25,000 jobs under the original announcement in November, which split the 50,000 jobs for a second headquarters between New York and Virginia.
