Did someone say higher taxes and higher real estate prices were a good thing, because that doesn’t seem to be the case in New York City. In fact, people are fleeing the New York City area in droves, according to Bloomberg. New York City leads all US metro areas as the largest net loser with an estimated 277 people moving out of the area every single day. This is more than twice the 132 people who left the metropolis one year ago. Los Angeles and Chicago have also seen a triple digit net loss of 201 and 161 residents leaving in 2019, respectively.
