The finalists include plenty of east coast cities such as Washington D.C., Atlanta, and New York City. Texas claimed two spots on the list, with Dallas and Austin representing the Lone Star State.

There is no specific date that Amazon has chosen to make their final decision, but they have stated that it will come at some point this year.
