Industry is not Manufacturing: Tax Breaks to Set Up Shop in NYC

Tax credits from NY State are helping VICE move to 60,000sf at South 2nd and Kent (and add 525 employees) and Amazon set up a photo studio in a 40,000sf spot at Kent and North 12th (creating over 175 jobs). Both sites are in areas still zoned for manufacturing. Helping the moves are $6.5 million and $2 million in tax credits, respectively.
