Patchett’s EDC: From Amazon to Willets Point

New York City is one of the finalists to house Amazon’s second headquarters, although not everyone thinks it’s the right match for the city. Joining us to make the case for Amazon is James Patchett, the president and CEO of the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

Patchett also discusses the growing challenges in achieving the city’s ambitious affordable housing goals, defends the city’s investment in ferry services, and updates us on the status of two long-delayed projects: the Willets Point development in Queens and the Kingsbridge Armory in the Bronx.
