Albany and New York City have been named two of the best cities for business in the United States for 2018.

Chamber Of Commerce released their list of the best cities for business in 2018 and New York City was the only city in New York State to make the top 25. New York City was ranked as the second best city for business, with Los Angeles, California coming in first place.

Albany was named the 52nd best city for business by Chamber of Commerce. Buffalo was the other city in New York to make the list, coming in as the 47th best city for business in the United States.

Chamber of Commerce compared multiple factors when creating their list. They compared things like the number of establishments, the number of paid employees, education of the population, median and mean earnings, and more.

Maybe this is the reason Amazon chose New York City as the location for its second headquarters or HQ2.
