As of this year, there is a large increase in wealthy people selling their NYC homes. If someone is selling their NYC home, do you think he is moving in or out?

Correct, Detroit depended too much on one industry, and that industry vanished... however, you can create the same result by chasing ALL businesses and industries from a city by imposing prohibitive taxation and other anti-business measures. Oh right, and the big difference from Detroit is that there is noooo ethnic/racial tension in NYC at all... :-).

The discussion is not about shoes and feet, but about facts reported in the news.

I think you should keep 7s engaged in such discussions until he is enlightened enough to realize that NYC is regressing in many aspects compared to pre-de blasio eras...it is pretty a tough job but I am confident that you are the right person to do this enlightening...

Who cares. I’m here in the city to make a **** ton of money and retire in my early 50s. Move the heck out of here and live the life in Central America.

I love NYC, but f it.

The democritters in the state legislature are trying to put together a single payer heath insurance bill . This would come with an additional 12-18% tax on top of existing income taxes. If the goes through we'll really see people fleeing the city/state.

^ The only thing that's keeping it an all-out mass exodus is that jobs are still here. Once companies and their jobs also leave, watch out.

Stupidly, the Democrats are doing their darndest to make it difficult and expensive to operate in New York (both city and state) so you know its just a matter of time before businesses leave en masse too.

It's like they are trying to make living and working in NY as difficult as possible for those that are positive contributors to the city/state's tax base and economy, while catering to the people that contribute the least. Retarded.

And for this exact reason will Trump win in 2020.

Not that this is intentional, but how else can they get revenue for all the social programs to keep their voter base in tact.

The next recession or next big movement will break this or democrats hold on the city or state. Remember how it all fell apart for the Dems as GOP captured both the governor and mayor. People just got tired of how bad NYC became.

Good point. It doesn't matter if a million people leave, my income wouldn't change. In fact, it'd go up due to 'mandatory' COL changes, whatever that really means.

My only other option at this level without needing a car is San Francisco, and I don't want to be in California...
