Amazon selected the Long Island City neighborhood in the NY borough of Queens, across the East River from Manhattan, and the Crystal City section of Arlington, across the Potomac from the United States capital Washington, where Amazon plans to create a new neighborhood called National Landing.
"We've delivered on those promises and more, and today, with Amazon committing to expand its headquarters in Long Island City, New York can proudly say that we have attracted one of the largest, most competitive economic development investments in USA history".
Amazon has amassed an unduplicated database of available sites and cities' strengths and weaknesses from the volumes of HQ2 proposals submitted.
The company said the new facility would create as many as 50,000 jobs and cost at least $5 billion to build and operate.
The project is expected to bring in 25,000 jobs for the New York City community, with the potential for 40,000.

In an attempt to woo Amazon into choosing them, many cities and states tried to incentivize the company through tax break offers and gimmicks.
Other local elected officials in New York City voiced criticism as well. Others slammed the company for settling on obvious cities after a lengthy search that drew 238 bids, including many from smaller cities in need of the "transformation" Amazon promised.
The development projects, which could be announced as soon as Tuesday, promise to bring the cities a giant infusion of jobs and tax revenue, but are nearly certain to draw fire from critics concerned about their impact on infrastructure and property values. Long Island City and Crystal City also have access to mass transit and major highways and are both within 45 minutes of global airports. Amazon has said the new jobs will have an average wage over $150,000, and the company has so far suppressed unionization efforts from its workforce.
"First of all, the sheer size and scale of Amazon and its interest across many areas of technology, retail, and various consumer services".
In the end, Amazon picked locations that would allow it to tap into an existing tech talent pool on the East Coast.
"Second, Amazon's forecasted strong growth means it wants to avoid the issues it had in Seattle where its expansion caused problems with the supply of labour, property, and put pressure on general infrastructure".
