It's not because of the Covid. I am looking into relocating because hey, I am getting older and I want warmer weather. It's up to my wife and daughter who both love NYC. I would like to not to be exposed to extreme weather.

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.
A reason you should love the politics, gun laws, and proximity of people and taxes is that it's paying your salary and pension enabling you to retire well and early. The states you love to hunt in don't have progressive government and a liberal tradition of paying municipal workers and paying police officers well. I am proud we pay NYC cops well. I support that. What does a police officer get paid in rural whereever get paid nothing right ? We give up ownership of guns to allow the professional police departments to handle that aspect. The large popularion provides justification and the tax base to justify the large number of officers. If NYC was a smaller City you might not even have a job in the NYPD. You speak of delinquency and degenerates like that is a NYC phenomenon crystal meth, heroine and other drugs and whatever ill you mention are rampant in rural America. And hobbies are a reason to hate ? Gee whiz. If I grew up in Honolulu should I hate it cause I want to ski ? My point to you was and is, this inclination to say you hate something like a City is silly at best and indicative of a cycle of thought that will go with you where ever you live. Best to shake it. Sure leave if you want but why be negative in the process ? Break the cycle. We did for weeks during the quarantine, I witnessed it.

Because... I want to?

Your feelings on this city are not the same as others (as evidenced by this thread which sure seems full of people ready to leave).

Does it seem full of people ready to leave? The thread's title would seem to attract mostly that, but aside from a few people who have outright saying they're in NYC now and looking to leave, you also have people saying they're looking to stay thus far, a person who wants to move here, and a lot of posts that are in a different situation entirely.

This very thought came to my head. Atlanta/Metro Atlanta are BEGGING for police officers. The pay and benefits here are laughable for what the job requires. I doubt you would have anything near to what you have now if you didn't live in a city like NYC.
