Statement by Supervisor Ed Romaine Regarding New York City Being Selected as Site for Amazon HQ2

Town Seal

Farmingville, NY –  “I want to congratulate Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on selecting Long Island City, Queens as one of the final sites for Amazon’s East Coast headquarters. Brookhaven Town has a population of a half million people, offering a significant talent pool for jobs being offered at this facility. As the largest Town in New York, and a short commute away from this site, Brookhaven offers numerous housing options for Amazon employees, as well as business sites for Amazon suppliers. Should the residents of Queens decide to oppose this development, we want to assure Amazon (and other tech sector businesses looking for an East Coast location) that our offer still stands, and Brookhaven’s doors are open for new business.”
