I recently read that New York is losing about 200 ppl a day, who are moving out of state.


Where are they going?


I've asked some ppl (not retirement age or not yet thinking of retirement), if they would ever consider Florida and most said no for a wide range of reasons.


So where are all these NY'ers going? And why?


Inquiring minds want to know...


Thanks.

Ive wondered as they did a news special on it for my area.

We might join 'em!!!

We plan to leave the state sooner than later to a warmer climate.

But that wil be retirement and to to a kuch cheaper tax area. Ny taxes are too high, and we get less and less each year, especially my area.

This year sone goid funds were finally donated, but because we are the red headed step child we usually lose out to NYC.

We'll see what local leaders do with the funds.

I live on the west coast and we'll be soon retiring and moving to the northeast. Sad thing is that our preference would be to move somewhere in NY, but we're just middle class folks -- and I mean actually middle class, not what two-income professional families like to call "middle class." Since learning of the staggering tax burden of living in NY that idea has gone completely out the window. Now we're looking at PA instead. I'm not an anti-tax kind of person, but seriously, the combined tax obligations in NY are a huge disincentive. If you can go there and make a ton of money, maybe that works, what with the higher wages, higher property values, but it doesn't work for a retired person or even a person with modest income, a regular job, just wanting to buy a little house and live comfortably.

It makes me sad about NY. I wish it could save itself somehow, but don't see how it can possibly happen with their giant deficit and all.

FLA (I've been here 10 yrs, I see them coming every year).....for the weather, low cost of living, low taxes, low housing costs. It has been like this forever.....feels like NYC (and NJ) South.

Saw a sign on a truck with a FL license plate...... don't move to FL, it's full.

As far as why are people leaving NY? One thing would be the high taxes. I think our state has the highest. Another reason might be the long, cold winters.

There seem to be a boatload moving into the coastal towns of Virginia. Also Williamsburg and Charlottesville.

......

So where are all these NY'ers going? And why?
This website provides state-to-state population migration statistics

State-to-State Population Migration

The latest New York migration data is for 2011 with a net loss of 95,591 people.

Here are the top 8 destinations:

1. Florida - 59,208
2. New Jersey - 40,815
3. Pennsylvania - 29,436
4. Texas - 26,155
5. California - 25,629
6. Connecticut - 20,015
7. Massachusetts - 19,431
8. North Carolina - 18,321

Since 4 of these top 8 states are neighboring states, many people are likely to move for job related reasons. Except for Pennsylvania, the COL in the other 3 states are comparable to New York.

It's likely that warmer weather is one of the reasons people move to Florida, Texas, California and North Carolina.
