It's useless to debate the situation. Amazon isn't coming to Queens.

We can watch and comment on what happens while Amazon goes to Manhattan/Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, here in Queens, we can observe how our own seemingly preferred industry, sex work, is faring.

manhattan has the lion's share of sex work in the five boroughs.

the wealthy and powerful need to have sex workers within easy reach.

manhattan will always be the sex work capital of the state, if not the nation.

i realize that.

you don't debate.

you make proclamations, then claim anyone disputing them is "disrespecting your boundaries."

have a great day.

Amazon is looking to come to Queens but is looking to bring low income jobs in warehouses.

I guess that’s better than nothing. I hope AOC will not try to ruin it again for people of NYC.

What are you talking about?   She didn't ruin it for anyone . Bezos pulled out once his penis pix got out as a means of distraction.  This had to do with the people of LIC and their representatives.

This was entirely predictable.

Folks fought against Amazon and felt smug about it so that other people can now live in luxury condos instead...and property developers nab those elusive tax breaks.

I don't know why anyone would try to build anything here. Note that the Bridgemarket project under the Manhattan side of the 59th St bridge took 22 years from the day a hapless developer signed a lease until the project finally opened to the public. Endless battles between city agencies, state legislature, community board, judges etc. I can't imagine the expense. There's a remarkable chronology (pp. 35-36 below) that reads like a satire. Very sobering.

Amazon has bought the Lord and Taylor Building from WeWork...

So, looks like that'll be their new NY HQ.

 Amazon has a pretty substantial operation with its trucks right now over by the BQE and St. Michaels
cemetery. It's a fairly good location for that kind of traffic until whatever they are building (says retail on
the permits) gets built where the old strip joint, was across from the soccer fields and 31st? Ave.
