Amazon plans to split its new headquarters between two cities — and New York may be one of them, according to reports.
Following a yearlong search, the online shopping giant made the decision to build two offices for its “HQ2” — in addition to the company’s headquarters in Seattle, The Wall Street Journal said Monday.
According to The New York Times, the company is nearing a deal to move to Long Island City in Queens and to Crystal City in Arlington, Va.
The split headquarters will have 25,000 workers each.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been trying to lure Amazon to the Big Apple — joking last week that he’d even be willing to rename Newtown Creek to the Amazon River.
On Monday, he also joked that he’d change his name to “Amazon Cuomo” if need be.
“It would be a great economic boost,” he said.
