Amazon.com Inc has dumped its plans to build a major outpost in Long Island City, New York.

Reuters reports the hub could have created 25,000 jobs.

Thursday, Amazon blamed opposition from local leaders upset by the nearly $3 billion in incentives promised by state and city politicians.

Opponents of the project feared congestion and higher rents.

They also objected to handing billions in incentives to a company run by Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man.
