Yes IMHO I absolutely prefer the EC or WC and what the locations offer


So lets see on economic output

NE Corrider GDP ~ 3 Trillion
CA (SF to SD) ~2 Trillion
TX Triangle ~ 1 Trillion

Or alumni....... Some are former area residents, but many are Syracuse University alumni or are from surrounding metros.

Raleigh is filled with alumni from many, many out-of-state universities. Michigan and Michigan State are the two I tend to notice the most. That said, I also see Syracuse window decals on cars with some regularity. Raleigh is also filled with tens of thousands of upstate New Yorkers who have come in a large aggregate quantities starting in the 1960's with IBM's initial migration.

Interesting, as I went to State for a few years. IBM started in Endicott, just outside of Binghamton. Since that area is only a little over an hour away, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Syracuse fans had ties to that area.

Nice to see Upstate NY and PA away from Jersey looking pretty good.

US2010 (keep in mind that Cayuga County is included for some decades)

Syracuse Apartment Rentals | Syracuse NY Apartment Finder

P.S.- Why do I hardly see you on the Syracuse forum?
Part of the reason Syracuse metro population expanded is because Nancy Cantor decided to grow Syracuse University. In ten years, student population jumped by almost three thousand. Practically all the metro colleges and universities have expanded their enrollment, thus creating a false population bubble. OCC had no on-campus housing ten years ago. And Syracuse metro's growth was mostly due to growing student population and natural increase.

People still leave Syracuse when things aren't going well.

And the reason I don't make regular trips to the Syracuse forum is because I don't particularly like Syracuse and don't want to sour that forum with my disgruntled presence.

While partially true, that is a little part of the gains in the area. There has been immigration and some have moved into the area due to the cost of living. College enrollment couldn't account for the bulk of the gain, as some of the towns in the metro that have gained people don't have colleges(I.e.- Cicero, Pompey, Van Buren, Marcellus, etc.).

Also, anti-Syracuse sentiment wouldn't be anything new on that forum.
