The race is on. Amazon announced recently that it is looking for a second headquarters in North America. Their headquarters is located in Seattle, Washington. Logistically, it would make sense to have the second one on the East Coast.

An article in CNN mentions there are eight cities that are a fit for Amazon's second headquarters. These cities are Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Dallas, Austin, Boston, San Jose, and Washington, DC.

What about locating the headquarters in New Jersey ? A major city in the proximity of the New Jersey Turnpike would be a good choice. Camden, New Brunswick, Elizabeth, and Newark come to mind.

Amazon is set to spend billions of dollars developing the headquarters and hire 50,000 workers. I'm waiting to see if any New Jersey city attempts to court Amazon.
