New Yorkers Are Freaking Out That Amazon's HQ2 Could Cripple The Subway System

2018-11-13 14:08:471 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Amazon has reportedly decided on two locations for its second headquarters: Long Island City, Queens, and Crystal City, Virginia. Initially, Amazon made it seem like it would crown only one winner in the HQ2 competition. That would have brought 50,000 new jobs and add $50 billion to a city's economy. Instead, these jobs and funds could now be divided between two locations. A $25 billion economic stimulus and 25,000 more workers could do wonders for Long Island City — an area that has only recently begun to attract a growing population. But New Yorkers are far from ecstatic about the decision. Locals in Long Island City worry about overcrowding in schools and sewage lines that are backing up. Across the city, residents fear that additional commuters could put pressure on an already fragile subway system.
