Nassau County’s Industrial Development Agency is looking for ways to take advantage of Amazon’s plan to build a $2.5 billion second headquarters in nearby Long Island City, Newsday reported. Nassau officials said they could possibly give tax breaks to proposed apartments in western parts of the county as part of an effort they hope will draw in some of the 25,000 workers that the e-commerce giant hopes to hire in the region. Officials also said they intend to help local businesses become suppliers for Amazon and spur other potential suppliers to move their operations to Nassau. County officials are joining an army of entities seeking to take advantage of Amazon’s move to New York, but others have been vocally opposed to the Seattle-based company’s move into their backyard. [Newsday]
