In September 2017, Amazon announced that it would build a second corporate headquarters, where it would offer 50,000 potential new jobs. The announcement asked for proposals for the location, suggesting that it hoped local governments would offer economic investment incentives. (Amazon founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.) Bids came in from 238 sites across North America, including Los Angeles, Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Orlando, Florida. For a year, observers speculated about which city would be chosen. The day before the midterm elections, the Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon would split HQ2 between New York City and Arlington, Virginia. New York offered incentives valued at roughly $3 billion, based on existing state and local economic programs. Virginia offered about $1.5 billion in incentives, much of which included investments in education, infrastructure and workforce development. These were new initiatives but hardly giveaways just to Amazon. … [Read more...] about Amazon will move into New York City after all. Did it really need public investments?

There is so much good television right now. One might say there is too much. And yet among the glut of excellence, there is only one show of which I will never miss an episode. One show that I implore all who ask to watch, too. The greatest show on TV is The Real Housewives of New York City. Sure, I may be exaggerating the truth a bit for dramatic effect—my girls at Beautique have taught me well. But there is such great entertainment value to this show that it would be imprudent to ignore it in this conversation of #PeakTV, which has extended to demand greatness and precision from reality television just as it does from scripted fare. The Americans is phenomenal, Big Little Lies changed the game, and April will see the returns of Veep, The Leftovers, and Fargo, plus the premieres of The Handmaid’s Tale and American Gods. But Tom and Luann are still going forward with their wedding even though Bethenny found proof that he cheated, and Ramona refuses to let it go—a … [Read more...] about We Need ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ Now More Than Ever
Chefs and foodies be warned: It’s not even noon and Anthony Bourdain is sipping a glass of Balvenie PortWood 21 Year Single Malt Scotch and talking about the joys of jujitsu—chokeholds and cauliflower ears included. But just when I think I’ll need to get my fingers wrapped and scrounge up a mouth guard, it turns out that his early-morning workout has relaxed the typically tightly wound 59-year-old New Yorker and he’s now, thankfully, in more of a joking mood than a sparring one. In fact, talking about his eponymous public market—which is scheduled to open at the end of next year on Manhattan’s far West Side—has rendered him downright contemplative. “This is a concept that should work completely independent of anybody’s name,” he says. “It’s something we should have had five, six years ago, ten years ago. Hong Kong has it. Singapore has it. Why don’t we have it? We’re an international city. We’re … [Read more...] about Anthony Bourdain’s Top 5 New York City Restaurants—and Why the Food Network Is a ‘Petri Dish’
By Giorgio Panetta CBS2 Chief Meteorologist/Weather Producer We have some winter weather to deal with today. But the good news, it’s really just this morning, as the system is a quick hitter. Skies are cloudy and snow filled as you leave the house or apt, but mainly early on. (Credit: CBS2) A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued through the overnight hours until 11 a.m. on Wednesday. The National Weather Service is urging commuters to budget in extra time for their trip to work in the morning. The New York City Emergency Management Department also issued a travel advisory for Wednesday’s commute. “As the rain transitions to snow Wednesday morning, you could face messy road conditions during your morning commute. Public transportation is the best way to get around, as it helps to alleviate any potential gridlock,” Commissioner Deanne Criswell added in a statement Tuesday night. If you were to sleep until noon, you might miss it all together. Snowfall is on the … [Read more...] about New York Weather: 12/11 CBS2 Wednesday Forecast, Snow Expected To Impact Morning Commute
