Getting the hell out of Dodge

From the NY Post:

Despite the nation’s longest economic expansion, the Empire State is actually losing population, an analysis of US Census data released Monday reveals.

The total state population as of mid-2019 was 19,453,561 — a drop of 76,790, or 0.4 percent, from the previous year, according to the study by the Empire Center for Public Policy.

...the high cost of living may be catching up with the Big Apple region, historically a magnet for newcomers that offset population losses in economically struggling upstate.

New York’s population has been stagnant over the past decade, with a modest 75,459 increase in residents since 2010, a growth rate of just 0.4 percent, ranking 46th-lowest out of 50 states.

Stagnant growth has real consequences.

The state will likely lose at least one and possibly two congressional seats — and political clout — after the next official decennial census count because of its failure to grow compared to other states.

New York, continuing a decades-long trend, was a net exporter of residents to other states — with 180,649 more residents moving out than moving in from other states over the previous 12 months.

Economic expansion only for the greedy top few & corps. NO true growth for normies.

The report shows biggest loss is from upstate to the Sunbelt. Most from NYC go to Jersey. Westchester and Dutchess to Connecticut. And two counties that border Mass to Mass.

So NYC is probably young families to the burbs. Upstate is probably old snowbirds. But suburb to suburb to another high tax state is new.

Remember that when you leave, also leave your liberal mindset back in your home state. We who are normal are not looking forward to you migration.

I dont see this as a bad thing. Less transplants and more housing becomes available. This is not a bad thing.
