And not just Miami. We're now talking up the coast all the way to Jupiter.

Don't you live in New Jersey or something? You have an awful lot to say for someone who doesn't even live in NYC. You should focus on Jersey matters and leave us New Yorkers alone.
We're losing lots of native New Yorkers to South Florida as well. They now got stronger Brooklyn accents than Brooklyn does.

That is true. Transplants, the rich and tourists flooding the place.

Because we have tourism which continues to grow. Tourists are now everywhere. They too want to stay here for cheap, so they travel to the outer boroughs. Hotels are expensive. Cheaper to stay in someone's place for the time you are there.

Are you talking about cars and what time period are you comparing to?

cars, trains, everywhere. It's packed everywhere at pretty much all times. I remember many parts of the city being ghost towns when I was growing up 15-20 years ago.

The population has grown...

Quote:
The U.S. Census Bureau has estimated New York City’s population at 8,622,698, as of July 1, 2017. This represented an increase of 447,565 residents (or 5.5 percent) over the April 1, 2010 decennial census count of 8,175,133. Post-2010 growth translates into an average annual gain of about 62,000 persons, or a compounded 0.7 percent. The city has not witnessed such a robust pace of growth in over a half-century. Population growth has been fueled by the continued surplus of births over deaths (partly due to record high life expectancy), which has been partially offset by net outflows from the city.
