Westchester County jumped into the frenzy around the location of Amazon’s second North American headquarters. County Executive Rob Astorino held a news conference on Sept. 26 at the Westchester County Center to make his pitch to lure the retail behemoth’s “HQ2,” which would employ up to 50,000 and could cost $5 billion to build and operate, according to LoHud. Amazon seeks a metro area with at least 1 million residents, which is slightly higher than the population of Westchester, but its proximity to New York City and commuter rail lines are considered pluses. Bids are due Oct. 19. [LoHud]
