Newark has an unmatched technology infrastructure and a set of assets that is far more distinctive and “Amazonian” than any other location in the state. Newark is an ideal home for the creativity, innovation, and passion that define the Amazon culture, and it possesses the infrastructure and access to elite technical talent to fuel Amazon's growth.

A higher education hub, with more than 50,000 students and researchers. One of the nation's most advanced and complete transportation infrastructures, including air, rail, bus and highways. More than 25 miles of 10GB fiber cable. And all of it within 10 miles of New York City - in the heart of the most valuable metro region in the world ($1.5 trillion)
