Amazon narrows its list of potential second headquarters CNY doesn’t make cut

Local News

Central New York isn’t going to be home to Amazon’s second North American headquarters.

Local business leaders attempted to lure Amazon along with 50,000 jobs to the Syracuse-Utica-Rome region but no luck. Yesterday Amazon tweeted the 20 communities that are still in the running for HQ2.

New York City, Newark and Philadelphia are among the finalists for Amazon’s second headquarters. Amazon says it’s looking for a metropolitan area with one-million people or more that offers a stable, business-friendly environment.
