Just count how many baby boomers move here to retire, then take into account the number of young to middle aged adult kids who are in tow. The giveaway is lots of old cars (Hondas) parked on the street...a sure sign of millennials in the basement :-)

Recent news article suggest that millennials are helping to reshape rust belt cities....much of it is affordable homes in these old industrial cities. Sounds like a good solution.

No kidding, where I live their is a house close by with 7 cars parked always in street or driveway and young people driving most. Their 2 car garage is packed to almost to the ceiling with stuff. All but one car is driven by males and not of school age.
