NYCEDC Explores What Amazon HQ2's Potential $13.5 Billion in Tax Revenue Can Pay for in New York City

In case you have been in a coma for a few months, mega-corporation Amazon has selected New York City as one of the locations for its second headquarters, and it's causing a lot of waves. Many people think that the city provided too many tax breaks to the company. But, the New York City Economic Development Corporation says that the city has the potential to get $13.5 billion in tax revenue from the deal, producing this video to show off how we could use that money for good. Check it out.

This is the largest single effort to attract new jobs in New York State history. It is projected to deliver over $186 billion in economic impact to New York over the next 25 years, including over $14B in tax returns to the State and over $13.5B to the City.
