New Yorkers Are Leaving The City In Droves: Here's Why They're Moving And Where They're Going

One million people have fled New York City and the tri-state area—which encompasses New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island—in the last nine years. According to Bloomberg, almost 300 people are moving out of the area per day.

This trend is not exclusive to the New York metropolitan area. Many similar regions are seeing their residents migrate to other states. Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, as well as Connecticut's Hartford, Bridgeport and New Haven, have all experienced a substantial exodus of people.

United Van Lines, the large moving truck company, keeps statistics on the flow of people. The company reports that three states in the Northeast—New Jersey, New York and Connecticut—are among the top places from which people are moving the fastest.

These statistics make sense to anyone living in these places. The costly living expenses, crumbling infrastructure and high tax rates are a big problem for residents. If you live in NYC, you are forced to pay exorbitant taxes. The schools, bridges, tunnels, trains, airports and hospitals are falling apart. Casually walk the streets of NYC and you'll notice that they are crowded and dirty. It's likely that you'll see or be confronted by homeless people who clearly display symptoms of serious yet untreated mental or physical issues. The politicians running the city feel that it's more humane to let them to live on the streets, as opposed to being treated in appropriate facilities. The crime rate has risen. To top off the misery, it's cold and snowy in the winter and oppressively hot and humid in the summer.

Darren DeFazio, the vice president of the finance and accounting permanent division at Robert Half, contests that although the overall business climate is strong, "corporations have left the area and relocated to cities that offered more attractive deals and incentives for companies and their employees."

Ernie Russom, a recruiter and executive director at the Westview Associates working in the greater New Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware regions, lamented the high number of "mergers, closures and relocation of the largest employers in his area." He notes that there are no plans in place by the politicians to attract new companies to replace the ones that have left.

The politicians don't seem to care. Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City, was out of the state—busy with his Don Quixote quest for the presidency of the United States—while New York suffered a major blackout. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. Representative for New York's 14th congressional district, led a movement to stop Amazon from building a second headquarters—a deal that would have created over 10,000 jobs. The anti business sentiment drove Amazon away and most likely scared off companies that might have considered New York City.

In the past, there were few alternatives to working in NYC. It was a mecca for banking, finance, media, advertising, fashion and other industries. Any company or individual who wanted to be seen as a big player in their space felt the need to have a presence in the city. Now, with the rapid growth of technology, which makes it easy to work anywhere in the world, there is less of a need to be clustered in the city.

Yet ANOTHER illustration of why socialism just doesn’t work.

The government of course does have a role to collect enough tax revenue to provide for common good, but as soon as overzealous socialism minded politicians take it too far, this is the result.

Why don’t voters ever learn?

I think any move out of the State of New York should be delayed by one year for every liberal democrat that individual voted for.

If you voted for higher taxes, more social services, more welfare, etc. You dang-well better live with those consequences.

The article neglected to mention the departure of one of New York's best taxpayers, a real estate tycoon who dabbles in politics. He commented, "I cherish New York, and the people of New York and always will," Trump said, "but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state."
The businessman, noted for his direct manner of speaking and ties which are too long, has relocated to Florida.

Trump is moving to skirt his responsibility to pay huge taxes so that the New York AG can continue to investigate him. Obstruction! IMPEACH!

And, unfortunately, some of them will take their lib voting ways with them. They don't learn. They are like cockroaches who move to another apartment when one apartment is fumigated.
