I'm guessing the only reason Newark is in the game is due to that 7Bn or 7 Trillion or whatever obscene amount of dollars they're throwing at Amazon is. Gives Amazon leverage to squeeze other cities.

Unlike the three tiny cities from New England that I mentioned, Newark isL

1) Less than 10 miles from the largest city in the USA
2) 20 minutes to Midtown Manhattan via rail
3) Has a major international airport

It's not even close to being comparable.

I agree, being part of a 20 million person metro area puts Newark in a very different boat from Worcester and Providence. I'm not very familiar, but I think Newark would score pretty poorly on public transit, no? PATH to NYC, but what else? Is local transit just buses?

What is wrong with your complete lack of reading comprehension?

He was comparing the DC suburbs to the Boston suburbs. He made no mention of where HE lived.....and not to put words in his mouth (which is something only people like YOU do), I presume Jouhou would agree he wasn't referring to Portsmouth in his post at all.

You continually make a game out of taking people's posts completely out of context and trying to create strawmen arguments. Let me guess, you used to be an annoying younger sibling growing up?

Whatever, you are taking away from a good discussion where there is good back and forth and information being learned with whatever gamesmanship you feel is important.

+1. Exactly. Add in the $5 billion and Newark should not be taken lightly in this.
