Re: ''New Yorkers are freaking out that Amazon's HQ2 could cripple the subway system, but...''

If it's anything like Google's NYC offices there will indeed be staff coming and going at all hours. Their main cafeteria is open 24x5 to support this.

Amazon's "cloud computing" related areas for example require 24x7 monitoring and support. While the data center itself isn't locating here, people who monitor and manage it might well be. Considering that minutes of server outage can translate to millions in lost revenue (whether it be for Amazon or the customers they host), there will be white collar shift workers. Not to mention developers who hold non-standard hours whenever possible. Finally, consider that Amazon is a global company and will hold meetings with other countries, likely during their business hours (when trying to woo a new customer you're not doing it at 2AM their time).
