I think overall it's kind of a wash. It would have been great if NYC got it but ifnot don't think it'll hurt em either. My concern was I could see the move driving housing prices up in an already ridiculously expensive city. Same can be said for Office space rent. If those go up will that prevent other businesses from opening up in the city(too expensive to operate). Esp tech start ups. In terms of corporate welfare unfortunately these days it's the price of doing business.
Btw Amazon is supposed to be opening a warehouse on SI Forgot when it opens.
