After Amazon announced plans to invest $5 billion in the construction and operation of a second headquarters, Nevada wants in.

Amazon is publicly seeking a home for its second headquarters, and a report from Bloomberg on Tuesday says some execs are already pushing for Boston.

The city's proximity to Harvard University and MIT, as well as Logan Airport's offering of nonstop flights to Seattle and Washington D.C. are said to be a big plus.

"Amazon is a big opportunity that Boston has to review", Walsh said in a statement.

"Bloomberg is incorrect - there are no front-runners at this point", the company tweeted.

Amazon has responded saying that all cities remain "on an equal playing field". "I think it has to be: is Boston the right fit for Amazon and is Amazon the right fit for Boston?"

The new facility would require as many as 50,000 full-time workers.
