Well, it's pretty delightful for dog waste fanatics though. Different strokes, man.

The politics, the gun laws, the distance between it and the real outdoors, the proximity which living here requires you to be in with multitudes of other people, the acceptance of degeneracy and over-all filth/decline which gets beat into people as normal, the million little ways which this area pilfers your pockets through fines, fees, tools and regulations... I could continue.

My typical hobbies and interests no longer match up with the reasons others cite as positives to this city. It's just no longer of me or for me except in that my immediate family remains and working 4-5 more years here will likely result in a life long retirement for me beginning well prior to my 50th birthday.

Looking at the homes in Midwood, $1.5M+ for a home is still a bit high.

What do you all think are the chances that things that were dens and parlor rooms and other such where another tiny bedroom was simply shoved in might disappear and be undone? Will the median square footage of living space per resident end up going up for a while?

As long as there is no cure for the virus, NYC will see negative growth. Most tech jobs are hiring people from around the country for remote work no need to be on site. One of the perks of working for NYC telecommute now is get paid NYC salary and not step foot here and not have to pay NYC taxes.

I am looking at moving to the South West or Southern California. I have friends there. I have put in for transfers. I love NY though. If people really hate it here they should leave because I wouldn't live somewhere I hate for more money. What good is money if your dead. This experience should be teaching us that. It would be bad living and dying in a city just because you love it. Yet, imagine remaining in a city you could have left but staying for more money and having family or yourself die. Where is the logic ? I love this City warts and all and would return with glee on vacation frequently
I just heard on the radio that a recent study estimated that more than 20% of NYC residents have antibodies already to covid-19. I wondered if your family were found to have antibodies, would you change your plans to leave? Or if you found out the virus was less lethal than you had previously thought? We all live with some risk in our lives and I wonder how you factor risk into your decision.
