What cities commonly grab people from other cities and what cities are they coming from?

ie "There are lots of New York people moving to Chicago"
"There are a lot of transplants from this city here"
"We've lost a lot of people to this city"

Obviously, many cities get people from all over but the fact is that there has be trends.

Also, what reasons do they have for moving?

ie weather
affordability
job
change of pace
move to bigger or smaller city

Perhaps this thread could establish some common trends on where people are moving from and why they are moving.

I've read that recently a lot of people are moving from Brooklyn to Philadelphia. Not necessarily people originally from Brooklyn, but people previously living there.

When I lived in Philly, a bunch of people I knew (or knew of) moved to New York.
