I read “Amazon seeking HQ site” [News, Sept. 8], and it started me thinking.

The company’s site requirements are: within 1 to 2 miles of major highways, direct access to mass transit, within 30 miles of a major population center and within 45 minutes of an international airport. The site that came to mind was Belmont Park, where New York State is looking for development proposals for unused land there.

This could be Amazon’s answer — and ours.
