Amazon received 238 applications for the opportunity to be the home to HQ2 and they have now narrowed it down to 20. Halifax, unfortunately, did not make the cut. Only one Canadian city is still in the running, go figure it is Toronto. The other 19 locations it will consider are all in the U.S., and include New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver, Boston and Nashville. Amazon has said they will announce the location later this year.
