Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo hold a press conference on Amazon’s Headquarters Expansion to Long Island City.

Patch reports that Amazon is getting $1.5 billion in tax breaks and grants to move to New York City, the massive company said in a blog post announcing the move Tuesday.

Editor’s note: We think that using a Harlem coast-line of the east or west side would have been a great place for the Amazon headquarters, but we expect that a good number of those 25,000 jobs will include Harlemite hires.
