City landmarks to turn orange in honor of Amazon HQ2 bid | In the News

As the proposal deadline for cities vying to be home to Amazon’s second North American headquarters looms, New York City is lighting up some of its most iconic landmarks Wednesday night.

To support the city’s official bid for what’s being dubbed as “HQ2,” the Empire State Building, One World Trade, 4 Times Square, 1 Bryant Park, Bloomberg Tower, Pier 17 in the Seaport District, billboards in and near Times Square and LinkNYC kiosks across the five boroughs will all turn “Amazon orange” at exactly 9 p.m., the New York City Economic Development Corporation announced.

Though officials think New York is a prime contender for Amazon’s HQ2, how does the city measure up to some of the other cities bidding?
