From 'Disgraceful' To 'A Mess': The Reactions To Amazon Pulling HQ2 Out Of NYC

Amazon announced Thursday that it would not move forward with its plan to bring a 25,000-job headquarters to New York City's Long Island City neighborhood.

Despite polling showing support for the project, and pleas from New York City's business community to hold Amazon to the deal, public opposition to the $3B in tax incentives the city and state agreed to give Amazon was fierce. 


Reactions from public officials and others to the announcement were immediate, with many taking to Twitter to express strongly held views on the outcome.
