Don't you think that that would be big news if it were true? Something tells me you are from Texas, Southern Boy.

I should have added that it was hearsay. My apologies for that.

Keep in mind they said Metro area not actual city.

I'm thinking Detroit, Cincinnati, Nashville, Hartford, and Philly.

Reason being is many of those have the space, the costs and the access to other markets. If costs were not a factor we would see this being pushed in NYC. I see more of a midwest or eastern path on this and staying in the USA.

It can't be in SF because they just don't have space let alone the price. Boston? The traffic alone and the fact that the MBTA is in a financial control board would have this yanked.

For Atlanta, I'm sure that Amazon would force MARTA to extend a line right to their campus. But Atlanta would raise taxes and do it just to compete with the other cities.
