That video was amazing. I was thinking the post office was the best option originally but I’m sold on Lincoln Yards now. It’s just an exceptional site, and an exceptional developer. The stadium is a little much though, I must say.

I'm now thinking Atlanta, Chicago, and Austin, in that order.

I do know that crime in very concentrated in certain US cities like Chicago. What you don't seem to understand as an American is that this is also true in low crime cities like Toronto and Montreal.

Speaking of Toronto and Montreal................a new report stated that the 4 top AI cities in the world are #4 Toronto, #3 Seattle, #2 Montreal, and #1 SF.

DC is really easy to get around. Has this thing called the metro.

You seem to think you know it's NOT going to NOVA. It will not go to Chicago or Atlanta. Just lots of fanboys pumping their dream. Won't happen. I believe it will go to Nova, Dallas, or remote chance Austin. Dallas has opened its checkbook.

What makes you such an expert on where Amazon wants to relocate? You seem to be just as big of a fanboy as the rest whose opinions need to be taken with a large grain of salt. Maybe throw in some analysis with your conclusions and you’ll be taken more seriously.

What a laugh.

This list of best choices are topped by the 4 areas Amazon wishes other cities have flights to...
1 New York
2 San Francisco
3 Seattle
4 Washington DC
5 San Jose
6 Northern VA

Their 7th pick is very intriguing: New Orleans

Bezos/Amazon doesn't need nor necessarily want the "checkbook", which is why the selection process seems so wide open.

It also has the best public transit of all the other leading sprawled out or sunbelt like metros better than SoCal, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Austin etc. With direct access to Dulles Int'l and Reagan via Metro. I'd say it should still be recognized as a leader.

And btw LA is the epitome of what you said, NOVA probably 2nd or 3rd.

That report in Geekwire is useless without including Montreal and Toronto who are strong contenders. Funny how earlier Geekwire itself said that Toronto was the top pic.
