Virginia is the birthplace of eight presidents. And Virginia is one of the two states where e-commerce company Amazon is planning to install its HQ2, its second headquarters. The company is based in Seattle, Washington. It announced plans for a second base more than a year ago. After a nationwide competition between cities to attract Amazon, the company announced that New York City and Crystal City, Virginia would be the two places where Amazon's new homes would be. In total they offered $2.8 billion in incentives to Amazon but that figure could go higher.
