Amazon can’t quit Long Island City, Queens. The e-commerce giant signed a lease to open up a 20,000-square-foot delivery station at 38-50 21st Street in the neighborhood where it almost built its second headquarters, Crain’s New York Business first reported. It plans to open the spot later this year, the company confirmed.
Amazon will take over the entire one-story building, owned by developer George Xu, between 40th and 38th avenues that was formerly home to a Green Apple Supermarket.
