New York City’s Infrastructure Is Crumbling. It Just Agreed To Help Amazon Build A Helipad.
The city and state of New York have agreed to help Amazon build an onsite helipad as part of the agreement to build its new headquarters in Long Island City. Amazon released the agreement Tuesday, along with its announcement about the location of its new headquarters: one in New York and one in Arlington, Virginia. The state of Virginia has similarly agreed to help secure the company an onsite helipad. New York “agree[s] to assist in securing access to a helipad on the Development Sites, as part of the Development Plan and subject to FAA approval,” according to the agreement. If the helipad cannot be onsite, it will be built nearby. Source
