Statement by Council Speaker and Acting Public Advocate Corey Johnson

Re: Amazon’s Decision to Cancel Move to New York City

“I look forward to working with companies that understand that if you’re willing to engage with New Yorkers and work through challenging issues New York City is the world’s best place to do business. I hope this is the start of a conversation about vulture capitalism and where our tax dollars are best spent. I know I’d choose mass transit over helipads any day.”
