Lots of people jumping ship

From AM-NY:

The New York-New Jersey-Pennsylvania metro area added 90,797 people between July 2013 and 2014, the third biggest gain in the U.S. But the New York metro area was unable to make the top 20 list of fastest-growing urban areas.

People nonetheless are still flocking to the city, but mainly from outside the U.S. International migration accounted for 85,438 new residents in a 12-month period ending June 2014, compared with 82,022 from July 2010 and 2011. Queens, long known as the most diverse borough, attracted the most people from other countries last year, with 27,072 people.

Domestically, however, more people moved out of the city than moved here over the past three years. Including people who moved to another borough, between 2013 and 2014:

Brooklyn lost 32,731 people, compared with 14,908 people between 2010 and 2011
Manhattan lost 21,582 people, compared with 3,620 in the 12-month period ending June 2011.
Queens lost 25,836 people, compared with 17,093 in 2011.
Bronx lost 17,199 people, compared with 18,237 in 2011.
Staten Island lost 2,044 people, compared with 2,099 in 2011.

All of the educated people are either dying or leaving - Queens is the borough of the uneducated and their anchor-baby spawn - the next uneducated generation.

De Blaz is clueless - he should be forced to spend a year in Corona or Elmhurst - it might open his eyes regarding illegal basement apartments and more!

Hah....what about that one million increase in NYC's population that Bloomberg and friends were predicting? I guess they will be third world section eights.

The vacancy will be filled with Chinese. Their cities are overpopulated and they drop kids like rabbits. Welcome to America. Help drive out the "undesirabu" people of color out of New York that give us so much trouble. The old game "Urban removal...Black removal" takes on another face.

Did they also count the illegals?

Losing people?? Oh yeah right! I was haut commenting the other day while driving up Queens Boulevard at 5 pm how Queens feels like a virtual ghost town these days! Give me a fricken break! So many people leaving? Great! Note to developers: The "mass migration is over! Queens isn't the "next big thing" in real estate anymore! Please stop over developing immediately!

The native born are headed out while the Achmeds and Joses of the world are heading in along with their mamacitas and little brats. Are taxi NYC medallions down yet with all the new ├╝ber drivers out there?

Aging boomers reaching retirement and dying-moving.

This is also causing the collapse of other legacy items such as churches, AM radio and movie theaters.

People are the greatest resource a city can have, especially a working and middle class, regardless of whether they are native born or immigrant.

The retired are leaving in droves or dying off. If NYC does not provide affordable housing and quality school system for the college educated native and immigrant born middle class, and for the skilled working class, they will begin to leave in droves in much larger numbers. NYC politicians have no plan to try to keep them, and in fact do everything to undermine them by totally focusing on assisting the poor and unproductive. For example, all the affordable housing touted is prioritized for the homeless, or the extreme poor. In the past, NYC visionary leaders implemented quality middle class Mitchelle Lama housing (stuyvesant city for example) to keep productive citizens from heading to the suburbs. They implemented the amazing specialized schools such as Bronx school of science -schools that put the suburban schools to shame. Now DeBlasio wants to undermine the specialized schools-the schools the educated and/or hardworking immigrants rely on. I already see the signs of stagnation in NYC. How is it that the former Grand Central Hospital is allowed to stand as an abandoned eyesore for years next to one of best elementary schools in NY state, in one of the best neighborhoods in Queens?! Don't the neighbors care? The parents? This tells me people are not vested in the future of the city, and preparing to leave as soon as possible. I think even the illegals would leave if given a chance given the unfriendly housing and school system. If folks are not careful, NYC will be just the island of Manhattan with luxury building for the filthy wealthy, and housing projects for the perpetually poor. The boroughs will go down the tubes as the fed-up working and middle class flee to Florida, Colorado, Utah and the Carolinas, or die out, or end up in the many assisted living facilities that seem to be popping up all over the place around here. End of rant.

Just got back from NC. I can't believe I returned. There is nothing better here in NY than anywhere else anymore. Charlotte was clean, friendly, affordable.
Every restaurant is packed because the middle class has disposable income. There were even mom & pop stores and restaurants. Parking was available everywhere. No potholes, no litter. We went through the "bad" neighborhood and it wasn't any worse than East New York but looked a lot better!
The teenagers everywhere were NICE kids. I think this taxpayer is out of here...
