Nope, I'm actually trying to move *to* NYC from Westchester because after doing the math it will cost me the same even with the income tax and I can avoid the 2 hour commute each way plus dealing with metro north. Don't care about schools, and I don't need a 2k sq ft of home on a half acre of land, so there's really no reason to stay in the suburbs. Also I hate driving everywhere, which is required up in these parts.

Now if someone would just buy my Westchester house...!

Where do you live that you hate Metro-North? The Hudson Line is great, but the Harlem line... Overcrowded...

I live on the Hudson line southern Westchester. By all accounts it's a dream commute, but getting to downtown via the subway from GCT is taking 2 hours on a good day. Plus, lately dealing with the school traffic which overwhelms the local roads at home is becoming a headache. At this point I'm ok with living in a much smaller place in exchange for getting 4 hours of my life back every day.

I think he/she selling to another wealthy person who likely move in or rent to another wealthy person who will move in.

Even if home prices are dropping, they have long way to go before wealthy are the not the primary investors/buyers.

Have you considered leaving NYS entirely?

Between July 2017 and July 2018, New York lost 180,306 people and gained 131,746 new residents. A difference of 48,560 abandoned New York — the biggest decrease of any state in the US.

The report states that while New Yorkers are leaving en masse, “the blow is being softened by international migrant inflows. From July 2017 to July 2018, close to 200,000 New Yorkers sought a new life outside the Big Apple while the area welcomed almost 100,000 international migrants.”

I read Carl Ichan is moving his hedge fund from NYC to Miami yesterday: 75 employees and taxpayers which earn avg. of $1.4 million each.

We left manhattan a few years ago. while always expensive, the city was safe and clean during Giuliani and Bloomberg years. It is sad to see what progressive NYC voters have done to it recently by electing de Blasio.

^ Besides a headcount, I'd also be curious of the income/wealth of the people leaving versus the people coming.

The city was safe and clean during Giuliani and Bloomberg?

Rats, gangs, shootings
The city still had all of the above when those mayors were in office, so I'm confused
There were more dangerous neighborhoods in the early 2000s in NYC than there are now
