NYC population growing, but not as fast

The Census numbers show that the five boroughs gained 23,960 people between July 2006 and July 2007, a rise of 0.29%. The growth is consistent with the city's population trends in recent years: The city gained about 40,000 people during the same period between 2005 and 2006. New York City's population now stands at a record high, 8.275 million people, according to the Census numbers.

Staten Island and Manhattan grew the fastest last year, at 0.6% and 0.5%, respectively.

I find it hard to believe that the population is grwoing faster. Most single family homes where I used to live are now two and three family homes...
Unless of course they are illegals living in illegal apartments..

That is the point - people are flowing out of the city and being replaced by three or four times as many illegals.

The population is woefully undercounted. Queens alone has nearly as many people as Chicago (with an infrastructure built for about 2/3 of what is living here)

Excuse me, but I think my father's block in northern Flushing (near Bowne Park) gained 23,960 people between July 2006 and July 2007.

It's so obvious that multiple/greatly extended Asian families are living in rented single-family homes.

Why else would there be 50 - 100 pairs of flip-flops in front of each doorway?

And since when do illegals fill out census forms?

And how about the vans that pull up each evening and disgorge Asian men? Who's counting them????????????
