Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hails Amazon's possible pullout from NYC”

Michael Gianaris, D-Queens, a noted critic of the deal, to the state's Public Authorities Control Board, which could be the deciding force behind the development plan for Amazon.

But people were divided when asked about the almost $3 billion financial incentives on offer, with 46% supporting them versus 44% who opposed the package.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo framed the original announcement as a tremendous job creation opportunity for the entire New York region.

Meanwhile, some local real estate insiders shrugged off the report as a negotiating move.

NY also offered up to $505 million in subsidies. The $5 billion investment is expected to create more than 50,000 jobs across the two new headquarters locations, with over 25,000 employees each in New York City and Arlington. In Long Island City, they saw this as a threat.

Along with his agent Patrick Williams, Son was reunited with former Tottenham team-mate Kevin Wimmer. It's going well so far, but we have just got to take our time with it and make sure we get it right.

The company faces a third City Council hearing and a session of NY state's Public Authorities Control Board. At a recent panel discussion about lessons learned from the process, Mike Finney, president and CEO of the Beacon Council, did not mention any specific feedback he'd received from Amazon officials about South Florida's bid The event was sponsored by the Miami Herald.

Several local officials and newly elected Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose district borders the NY site, opposed the Amazon deal.

Amazon's plan to open a second headquarters in New York City may be in danger.

"If Amazon does not come to NY, it's because of the political opposition".

But some residents in the rapidly transforming Long Island City neighborhood across the East River from mid town Manhattan's skyscrapers have loudly opposed Amazon's plan.

Fed to be "patient" with rate changes
Charlie McElligott, cross-asset macro strategist at Nomura, said the Fed "utterly "bent the knee" to the stock market ". Powell said the policy change was not driven by a "major shift" in the Fed's baseline assessment for the U.S. economy.

"With their long history of abusing workers, partnering with ICE to aid their persecution of immigrant communities, and contributing to gentrification and a major housing crisis in their hometown of Seattle, New Yorkers are right to raise their concerns and opposition to this plan". Westin has helped rally opposition to the deal from labor unions, community groups and prominent politicians like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose district is adjacent to the proposed site. In December, the search giant announced that it's putting $1 billion toward a sprawling campus in the city. "It's not over, but I'm proud of the values we fought for".

Amazon is having second thoughts about plans to build a massive office in New York City, according to a new report from The Washington Post. But locals have objected to the displacement they say the new center will bring and the added pressure it could put on the city's underfunded infrastructure. "If they stop Amazon from coming to NY, they're going to have the people of NY to explain it to".

Amazon, for its part, has tried to win over its future neighbors. The company has also launched an aggressive mailer campaign to Queens residents "from your new neighbors at Amazon" to counter anti-Amazon flyers distributed by Gianaris.

On the other hand, Amazon has significant backing in the form of Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

If the deal does fall through, some fear it could have broader repercussions on New York's ability to attract top corporations.
