I absolutely love every single thing about it. It is a much better quality of life.

Now how many more days until retirement?
Palm Springs is a gay area, so unless you are gay..........Now, Palm Desert is not, it is more family- oriented. But remember, California prices are about the same as NYC..........

If you had any idea of nyc's dynamics then you'd know that it is immigration which has and is keeping the pop numbers afloat. The number of transplants is so little as to be insignificant ( in the scheme of things) and plent of natives leave.

Where would a new immigrant from Trinidad be better off? Tennessee or NY?

It was a slight increase. The only thing that saved nyc is its high birth rate, immigration and the trade off of migrantory transplants. However nyc is still not out of blue yet, i read some pdfs prior to the last census that states more nyers move out compared to new comers moving and frankly thats bad. At least there is a trade off of young educated nyers who are leaving and educated transplants who are moving in. A good thing citi habits, corcoran and other real estate agencies host seminars on college campuses through out the country about moving to NYC.

To add to the high birth rate; it is high among the poor and immigrants.

Surely, one can''t rely on the census here. There's probably more that a million people in NY who are either too dumb or afraid to be counted. Thinking that they might get the boot out the country or are trying to hold on to their government subsidized apartment...

?

You're not going to get an accurate count of illegals and some recent immigrants that may need to live multiple families to an apt.



If you believe that certain groups have always been underrepresented than the decade over decade stats inherently take that into account and the census would be very accurate in terms of pop changes.

If anything the incentive is to overplay the stats because as it's tied to congressional seats and federal funding.

The recent census has nyc as 8,175,133 residents

On an average day, you will have 100K to 500K people from nearby states coming to NYC for work. (new jersey, long island, upstate ny, connecticut , etc)

In a Year, NYC will welcome 45 million tourists. So let's say 123K tourist on average every day.

NYC is a mecca for illegal immigrants. Let's say 100K to 500K illegal immigrants living in NYC.

I would say an average NYC day has 8.5 to 9.3 million people. That's fcking crowded!!!!
