Saratoga could use a large business like Amazon. With the "free" tuition plan that Cuomo put in place and the requirement that after graduation they are required to work in the state for a specific time as a pay back, it would help some of the young people who are moving out of the area after high school.

It is a part of the Albany metro area and that would be the airport they would use.

Saratoga Springs and even Ballston Spa are walkable, with nightlife as well.

NYC and Boston are only a couple of hours away and could be potential areas to get talent from, as well as area colleges/universities.

Not sure about public transportation, but that could possibly be appropriately adjusted.

Hey, why not? Might as well join the hundreds of other cities trying.

I do think Bpt shortchanges the possible talent pool though. There are good tech colleges in this area. Albany airport would be just fine, too. But, they're not going to Saratoga county. Or Fairfield County, or Hartford.

Yes, which has direct flights to a couple of the cities and could possibly add the others if necessary.

IMO this is too big to put in Saratoga. Saratoga wouldn't be able to support it.
