WSJ picks Boston as a top contender for Amazon's second headquarters

Ever since the e-commerce giant announced September 7 that it was seeking proposals for a site to build a new $5 billion North American headquarters that would be on par with its Seattle site and bring around 50,000 jobs, cities have been in a race to prove they have what takes to land the deal.

Amazon invited cities and regions to submit proposals and announced last month that it had received 238 from across North America. Based on this method, the Journal found that Dallas, Boston, and Washington D.C., respectively, have the "strongest characteristics". This analysis apparently lends more weight to the things Dallas does have going for it: no state income tax and a comparatively low cost of living.

The WSJ/Green Street rundown also noted this: "Boston boasts a great sports-bar scene (10 professional-sports titles since 2000 will do that), and a millennial population that has grown about 9% since 2012".

Atlanta, Chicago and Denver were the three cities that matched up most closely with Seattle, Amazon's current home, while New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago were the three with the most tech talent. The company is expected to make a decision next year, promptly killing this "virtual cottage industry" of Amazon HQ2 predictions and putting an end to the desperation and debasement of civic leaders around the country.
