Amazon’s plan to open a second headquarters in Long Island City, New York, just across the East River From Manhattan has been abandoned amid backlash. The retail giant announced on Thursday that it will not open a facility in the city and will instead focus its efforts on new offices in Crystal City, Virginia and Nashville, Tennessee.

Currently Amazon says it is not exploring options to replace its New York City plan but there is speculation that it will reopen its search among 20 former finalist locations.
