And furthermore, the population of NYC is still growing...

1) This study in happiness (from the OP) has Florida #3 and NY dead last

2) Domestic Migration by State (http://mcdc2.missouri.edu/data/popests/Reports/dmig_report_states - broken link)

...and this one shows that NY State has many more people moving out than in (opposite is true for Florida)
