"We're focused on engaging with our new neighbors - small business owners, educators, and community leaders", it said.

Inc.is reconsidering its plan to build a corporate campus in NY after facing a wave of opposition, according to a report.

The Post, which is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, cited two sources familiar with the company who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"The question is whether it's worth it if the politicians in NY don't want the project, especially with how people in Virginia and Nashville have been so welcoming", a person familiar with the company's plans told the Post.

A new rumor suggests the planned Amazon NYC headquarters is being reconsidered.

The company is considering other options for the NY location, including relocating thousands of jobs to other areas and withdrawing altogether.

Amazon is moving forward with plans to construct another headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, near the nation's capital.

Though, unlike in Virginia, where elected officials passed the state's incentive package fairly quickly, approval from NY is not expected until 2020.

The investigation started between six and eight months ago, when a police officer pulled over a motor vehicle in country Victoria. Three of those arrested in Australia will appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court later on Friday.

The relatively unknown board weighs in on any financing and land use deals that run through public authorities, which primarily include economic development projects. Amazon is already finding this out in its home city of Seattle, and it's running into opposition in NY because numerous people there don't think it fits.

One reason for the big difference in whether Amazon is welcomed or not lies in the nature of the locations where the new headquarters would be.

Nearly immediately after Seattle-based Amazon announced past year that it chose Long Island City as one of two sites to build new corporate offices, a backlash emerged from lawmakers and community organizers in the Empire State. "I am against the deal that has been proposed and don't believe that it can form the foundation of a negotiation", Gianaris recently told the New York Times.

On Tuesday, embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) signed a bill to provide up to $750 million in cash incentives for Amazon to bring 25,000 jobs to the northern part of the state.

In addition to raising concerns about the tax breaks given to Amazon, critics have noted that the company has said it would not support employees who seek to unionize. The selections came after a year-long competition with hundreds of cities vying for Amazon's favor.

One supporter of the deal Van Bramer spoke to "seemed genuinely anxious, and that led me to believe that it was real", he said. Plus, adding 25,000 high-paying jobs to this corner of Queens will only make gentrification worse, activists warn.

Sure, Amazon shimmied into Virginia and got everything it wanted. "It's setting a bad precedent", Carlo Scissura, president and CEO, New York Building Congress, told CNN Business on Friday.
