I like Newark too, in fact I love Newark. I'm born and raised there. For a lot of reasons I think Newark, could be a good choice. But i don't think it's going to happen. My guess is going to be Atlanta. The airport is better and the cost of living a lot less than anywhere in the NYC tri state area. But I'll still keep my fingers crossed.

Wall Street Journal Today - new short list - still has Newark & New York City on it.

Newark makes some sense - Amazon just built two huge warehouses by the Turnpike (exit 8A) and it has great access to that as well as NYC & EWR.

Atlanta
Austin, Texas
Boston
Chicago
Columbus, Ohio
Dallas
Denver
Indianapolis
Los Angeles
Miami
Montgomery County, Md.
Nashville
Newark, N.J.
New York City
Northern Virginia
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Raleigh, N.C.
Toronto
Washington D.C.

My bet is on Boston, Chicago or philly


I'd go with Boston, but for the stupid MA support of non-compete contracts. Since the top prospects would not want to deal with that, no tech firm wants to locate there if it has a choice. Chicago is too far from mountains for the outdoor enthusiasts like skiers climbers and cyclists. They're spoiled by the NW. The only rec there is boating.


Chicago is a definite no go given the crime situation and the dysfunctional government there.

Denver seems like a popular choice, and it was the sole city selected by the NYT in their piece from two weeks ago in which they whittled down all the various potential locations. It is definitely a very likely choice. I could see them going for something in FL (Orlando?) or TX (Austin or San Antonio) because of the low taxes and relatively cheap cost-of-living, plus plenty of young people and favorable weather most of the year, albeit brutally hot summers. Those FL/TX places would lack the appeal of a top-level school, but at least Austin/SA have TAMU close by. The NYT times dismissed some locations because of the lack of "mass transit" that is prevalent in larger cities, but that may not be as important a component in the right location.

The top college thing is the one torpedo in the popular Denver candidacy. If it had a little better economy Pittsburgh would be a real contender.

Heard on NPR today about Amazon's search for new HQ location. Does anyone know for sure whether JC is submitting a proposal? And do you think it would be a good thing (downsides mentioned in the NPR piece included increased gentrification, infrastructure overload etc)?

Read their complete list of desires, JC is not a good fit. Too expensive and too far from outdoor activities.
