Will Bunch has worked at the Daily News for 20-plus years and is now senior writer.Since 2005, he’s written the uber-opinionated, fair-but-dangerously unbalanced opinion blog "Attytood," covering a range of topics (but mostly politics and the media these days); it’s been named best blog in the state by the Associated Press Managing Editors and best blog in the city by Philadelphia Magazine.And while the city has two ideal sites for an Amazon campus on paper, in reality the Navy Yard desperately needs the subway link that officials have dilly-dallied over for years, while the Schuylkill Yards between 30th Street Station and Drexel University doesn’t even have the giant platform that it needs to be built atop.Having said all of this — and maybe it’s just hometown bias — a part of me thinks Philadelphia is a more serious contender than some of the experts are saying.
But in a shocking and completely unexpected development, Philadelphia turned out to not the only North American city to see itself as the perfect mate for Amazon. ) announced that it would be bidding, aggressively, for the Amazon HQII.
The second thought was — if Philly did miraculously win this billion y reality show, do the city’s twenty- and thirty-something women really deserve to have their budding romantic lives strangled by a tsunami of dull tech geeks?
That may seem like an odd reaction, unless you read the viral story that came out of Seattle a couple of years ago with the blunt headline, “Amazon Is Killing My Sex Life.” The article in Dame Magazine blamed the tech giant for making its original HQ city “lousy” with “boring tech dudes.” The weird part is that Amazon’s overwhelmingly male (sigh) hiring practices should have created a -style dating windfall for Seattle’s young and restless females, but the reality is counter-intuitive.
After all, much of the city’s renaissance — its revitalized neighborhoods and its many small tech start-ups — has happened without those same experts paying much attention.
I think Bezos — who, like everybody, wants to rule the world — wants to plant his flag on the East Coast. But if Philadelphia is in the mix, now is the right time to ask whether we even want to be.
