Report: Newark, New Jersey revisited in Amazon HQ2 search

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said he plans to announce the finalist for the company's second headquarters by the end of the year and according to the Wall Street Journal report, it could be one of five cities.

According to the report, Amazon executives have visited New York City, Newark, N.J., and Chicago over the past couple months. Additionally, the company has been following up with other locations, including Miami and the Washington, D.C. area, all five of which are among the 20 finalists for its $5 billion second-headquarters project.

However, other cities, like Raleigh, N.C., haven't heard from the e-commerce giant in months, notes the Journal.

Last month, Bezos told a sold-out crowd at the Economic Club of Washington that his team has made tremendous progress in its year-long hunt for a second headquarters and they will announce the decision before the end of the year.

"The team's working their butts off on it and we will get there," Bezos said.
