People Fleeing NYC

The New York Post reports on hometown population trends:
More than 1 million people moved out of the New York area to another part of the country since 2010, a rate of 4.4 percent — the highest negative net migration rate among the nation’s large population centers, US Census records show.

The number of people leaving the region — which includes parts of New Jersey, Connecticut, the lower Hudson Valley and Long Island — in one year swelled from 187,034 in 2015 to 223,423 in 2016, while the number of international immigrants settling in the tri-state area dwindled from 181,551 to 160,324.
Sadly, other parts of the country have to absorb these unpleasant migrants with their trademark chip-on-shoulder 'tudes.
