Transportation Capital

All roads lead to Newark.  Amazon's workforce can easily get to the new HQ2 by automobile, train, airplane, bicycle, or on foot.  Newark Airport (EWR) is a 7 minute train ride from our downtown trains and the Accela is faster to DC than from nearby cities.  Port Newark is the 3rd largest port in the country and provides unique partners in global logistics like Maersk and United Airlines.

World Class UniversitY Talent

Newark has long been the home to great universities.  Rutgers-Newark was ranked the most diverse university in America, and NJIT has ranked in the top 50 best ROI nationwide.  Rutgers Law, Rutgers Medical School, Seton Hall Law School, and other graduate schools make Newark an attractive place to recruit graduate level talent.  Essex County College creates unique apprenticeship and training opportunities, so Amazon can create non-traditional models for shaping the tech talent of the future that will scale across the country.
