Could Boston Be Amazon’s New Headquarters?
It's a prize that most large cities in the U.S. would love. A huge company that expects to create 50,000 high-paying jobs. According to the New York Times, Amazon is looking for a second location in North America, and Boston is on the short list.
The Seattle-based company reportedly wants a city that already has more than a million residents, has an international airport and a dependable mass transit system. The company also wants a location that has good recreational opportunities.
A follow-up story at MSNmoney.com lists Boston as one of the 20 cities in contention. Others include Atlanta, Baltimore and Dallas.
