Amazon announced last week that it will spend $5 billion on the construction and operation of its new location called Amazon HQ2.

Executives at Amazon.com (AMZN) are pushing for the e-commerce giant's second headquarters to be located in Boston, according to Bloomberg.

Boston's lower cost of living as compared to other cities being weighed is also said to provide it with an advantage.

A group has covered the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the University of Virginia campus, according to WVIR . They chanted as the statue of Thomas Jefferson was covered by a black tarp.

So far, Boston's response to possibly landing Amazon has been restrained.

"Amazon is a big opportunity that Boston has to review", Walsh said in a statement. "I think it has to be: is Boston the right fit for Amazon and is Amazon the right fit for Boston?"
