The Washington Post reported the story earlier on Friday.
Responding to the report of Amazon's second thoughts, de Blasio's office said in a statement, "The Mayor fully expects Amazon to deliver on its promise to New Yorkers". "The idea that we need to subsidize them in any way blows our mind".
"Can everyday people come together and effectively organize against creeping overreach of one of the world's biggest corporations", freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted on Twitter with a link to The Post's report. But it's not for nothing that Amazon wants to be in NY.
At the outset of its search previous year, Amazon said it was looking for a business-friendly environment. "I would do that all day long", Cuomo said at a press conference in Long Island, where he was talking about the budget for the area.
A source toldthe Post: "The question is whether it's worth it if the politicians in ny don't want the project, especially with how people in Virginia have been so welcoming". The HQ2 project has actually split the city's labor movement.
Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union - which has worked to help unionize Amazon warehouse workers in Staten Island - pointed the blame at Amazon.
Of course, Amazon has heavily researched other cities and may still be in conversation with some of them for potential future sites. "Amazon is a billion-dollar company".

Despite emphatic support from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, other local Democrats haven't been as welcoming.
Consider that there is a reason why NY is stagnating and Texas continually leads the country in economic growth, and why Dallas specifically has a knack for attracting corporate headquarters. This week, Virginia officials passed an incentive package that includes up to $750 million in state subsidies for the proposed National Landing campus. "Because it is so ironic for Amazon, after they spent one year with everyone seducing them, and everyone courting them, we win and then there's political opposition".
Critics claim the deal offers too many subsidies to one of the world's largest companies, led by the world's richest man.
The Legislature and governor would have to sign off on a New York City-only millionaires tax.
Whatever the outcome, Amazon's gambit shows how much the HQ2 sweepstakes has backfired.
Politicians, locals and advocacy groups appear to be trying to avoid side effects of an Amazon invasion - rent hikes, crippling traffic and giving the lucrative company substantial tax breaks - as Seattle experienced during Amazon's explosive growth there over the past decade.
The Post's sources said no specific plans were in motion to cancel the headquarters plans, noting that Amazon may try to pressure the state's lawmakers with the threat of canceling the deal. "Amazon would be exceedingly foolish to actually pull out of this deal".
