Honestly, I am kinda loving it.

I've been going into NYC on the weekends and have no trouble finding Manhattan parkings!

Plus a whole less traffic!

It doesn't take a genius to see what you said doesn't make much sense. I think that is a very low bar for genius. How did "Almost everybody would test positive(ish) for Coronavirus if tested." make sense to you? I think you must have meant something other than what you wrote, because otherwise it's just plain silly.

It's nice having the streets to yourself, problem is the parking rules are the same in Manhattan. I can get anywhere in minutes now (I LOVE IT) but the parking costs are the same, so if I drive in Manhattan I go after 6 pm for free parking.

It's insane, I have to do a double take when I see 18 minutes to downtown Manhattan on the GPS while in Newark, or seeing 28 minutes Greenwich to Queens in the middle of (supposedly) rush hour

If you consider that over half came from Manhattan alone, I don't believe there is a massive exodus of people actually moving. I bet a lot of those are wealthy people with second homes who will be staying there till this is all over. Then you have the students who are not going to in person college classes anymore and had their summer internships or new job offers rescinded who are moving back home. Then you have the regular kids who were just furloughed or laid off going back home also.

This. It will always be overfull as the island is just too small. I would not bet on prices of rentals or coop/condos going down too much. No 'fire' sale. A few will leave who were probably leaving anyway but ithe vacancy rate was about 1% before this.

I won't even get into the fact that I was the one who ultimately kicked out the roommate by using a combo of psych skills and being more psycho towards him than he was to me, but my point is that yeah, lawyers are NOT in a position to talk about anyone being a predator.

In fact, it is in their interest to drag out cases so they can squeeze you and bill you as much as possible. I used to suspect and dislike expressions like "I hate lawyers", but after having dealt personally with quite a few in recent years, yeah, they are scum for the most part.
the nicest thing I can say about most lawyers is they're better than rapist and child molesters.

I moved from NYC to NC and planned to return someday. Once the transplants leave,rents will come back to reality.If you are a die hard New Yorker leaving is not an option. Also many wealthy NYC residents have left for their second homes.

Once they get tired of raising their own kids and cleaning their own clothes they will return because that is where their 'help"is.....
