Those orange lights aren’t for Oktoberfest or Halloween.
New York is portrayal the city “Amazon Orange” in support of its
bid to be the horde of Amazon’s future second
headquarters, according to
a tweet from Politco reporter Gloria Pazmino, who
cited the mayor’s office.

One World Trade Center will all spin orange at 9 p.m. on October

neighborhoods will also spin orange.
Alicia Glen, the city’s emissary mayor in charge of economic

city’s economy and industries — as good as the enterprise of many
immature people to work in the city — are adequate to captivate Amazon
but big financial incentives.
“Kids wish to work in NYC. They don’t wish to be in a suburban
