1 in 3 New Yorkers Under 30 Plans to Get the Hell Out
According to a new Marist College poll, 1 in 3 New Yorkers under the age of 30 plans to escape the state "at some point" for good. Which means the rest of us will finally have a little room to move! One in four adults plans to leave the state within five years, mostly for economic reasons including taxes, cost of living, etc. This could be a problem that "will drain the state of its next generation" (assuming no one moves in to replace them, which is a dubious theory at best -- the city has long been, to a certain group of post-grads, a kind of transitional opportunity), or it could mean we finally get a really great, rent-stabilized apartment. We'll be glass half-full about this, for now. Hey, 50 reasons to be happy you live here! [NYP/Marist]
