Amazon is now close to an agreement & # 39; for these 2 cities to share their new headquarters & # 39; HQ2 & # 39 ;, according to a new report



What do Crystal City, Virginia and Long Island City, New York have in common?

If he New York Times that's right, it's the two communities that will share Amazon's 50,000 jobs as a result of becoming the shared home of HQ2:

The company is about to reach an agreement to move to the Long Island City neighborhood in Queens, according to two of the people briefed on the discussions. Amazon is also close to reaching an agreement to move to the Crystal City area in Arlington, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, one of the people said.

Amazon already has more employees in those two areas than anywhere else outside Seattle, its base of operations and the Bay Area.

If the Times is right, it is a great victory for these two communities, but also a blow that will probably be felt more strongly in two places:

  • Dallas, which is the third city that has been mentioned repeatedly in the last 48 hours, more or less as in "late" negotiations with Amazon, and perhaps to a lesser extent–
  • Newark, which already has the headquarters of the Amazon subsidiary, Audible, and where the mayor of the city told reporters: "We are glad to be here, we have already benefited from being in the race."

If you keep a score, this is how this developed in the last days. First, The Washington Post (owned by Jeff Bezos, of course) reported that Crystal City was in final talks. Then, an Amazon executive used Twitter to attack whoever leaked that story.

Then, The Wall Street Journal reported that Dallas and New York were still in the race, and then reported that HQ2 would be split in two, but did not say which two cities.

Now, maybe, we have the final details. We should know for sure within the week. Or maybe Amazon is playing with all of us.

This is what I am reading today:

Children do not want to work in fast food restaurants. So they are turning to the elderly
