I see one in NY! It had previously been an IBM town until They switched to a services model and the town has been kind of depressed since they left. However a lasting legacy was a pretty good tech school. A gigafactory is located here because it’s based on research/patents from Binghamton University plus is now a lower cost of living area.

Im sure they haven’t forgotten a legacy of pollution from early IBM days and the much earlier leather and other manufacturing, and will not accept that again. My childhood had too much hazardous waste cleanup from 100+ years ago and there will still be people who remember that
