Elmont rally shows support for bid to bring Amazon’s 2nd HQ to LI

More than two dozen gathered in Elmont on Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, to call for Seattle-based Amazon to bring its second headquarters to Belmont Park. Holding a banner across the street from the race track that said "We want Amazon," they chanted "This is my backyard" in a reversal of the oft-mentioned "Not in my backyard" cry against development.
