Amazon dumped New York, but cities still wooing the company

SeattlePI.com Friday, 15 February 2019
Amazon's breakup with New York was still fresh when other cities started sending their own valentines to the online giant. Officials in Newark, New Jersey, one of the 18 finalists that Amazon rejected in November when it announced plans to put its new headquarters in New York and northern Virginia, sent a giant heart that read, "NJ & Newark Still Love U, Amazon!" Representatives of other jilted suitors, such as Chicago and suburban Maryland, tried to get Amazon's attention and say they're still interested in a relationship, too. The love notes came even though Amazon said it doesn't plan to pick a new city to replace New York, where the HQ2 project was supposed to produce 25,000 jobs.
