"Amazon's move to Long Island City is a tremendous win and confirms New York is a global leader in tech. The fact that Amazon is choosing a borough outside of Manhattan marks the culmination of a long term City and State economic development strategy to diversify our economy throughout the five boroughs.

This announcement is a significant achievement for our state and local leaders, congratulations to Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, NYC Economic Development President Patchett and everyone on their teams who worked to make this happen"

- John H. Banks, REBNY President
