Amazon to Lease Office Space in New York City

The e-commerce giant will take over 335,000 square feet in Manhattan. The space will be located in the borough's upcoming Hudson Yards neighborhood. Earlier this year, Amazon abandoned plans to build its second headquarters in N.Y.C. Unlike previous terms for HQ2, the company will not get billions in tax incentives. Won’t you look at that: Amazon is coming to NYC anyway - *without* requiring the public to finance shady deals, helipad handouts for Jeff Bezos, & corporate giveaways, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, via Twitter. A report from 'The Wall Street Journal' says the new office will house 1,500 employees. A spokesperson for Amazon says it will open sometime in 2021.
