Progressive utopia of New York City is losing residents at an alarming rate

At the end of 2019 Mayor Bill de Blasio claimed that New York City Is ‘safest big city in America.”

Demorats….delusional as always.

Excerpts from the NY Post report:

New York is in a State of Decline. Despite the nation’s longest economic expansion, the Empire State is actually losing population, an analysis of US Census data released Monday reveals.

The total state population as of mid-2019 was 19,453,561 — a drop of 76,790, or 0.4 percent, from the previous year, according to the study by the Empire Center for Public Policy.

New York was one of only 10 states to suffer a total population decline in 2018-19 — its fourth consecutive annual decrease after five years of growth, and the largest population drop of any state. Only West Virginia, Alaska and Illinois saw their populations fall at a faster percentage clip.

“You’d think with a strong economy, New York wouldn’t be losing population,” said the Empire Center’s E.J. McMahon, author of the report.

He surmised that the high cost of living may be catching up with the Big Apple region, historically a magnet for newcomers that offset population losses in economically struggling upstate.

Not anymore. New York’s population has been stagnant over the past decade, with a modest 75,459 increase in residents since 2010, a growth rate of just 0.4 percent, ranking 46th-lowest out of 50 states.

Stagnant growth has real consequences. The state will likely lose at least one and possibly two congressional seats — and political clout — after the next official decennial census count because of its failure to grow compared to other states.

By comparison, the total estimated US population of 328,239,523 was up about 1.6 million over the 2018 total. Since 2010, the national population has increased by 19,493,985, or 6.3 percent — nearly 16 times the New York rate.”

I just wish that the New Yorkers who left wouldn’t bring their politics with them to infect their new cities and states, like what ex-Californians have done to states like Nevada and Texas.

Vox Day thinks, and I concur, that if one moves to another state, they shouldn’t be able to vote for 3 generations. Before voting, someone needs to know the people, the culture, and issues of a state.

Those fleeing ‘progtopias’ like NYC are a form of metastasizing political cancer. It’s what has politically “killed” NH, CO and more recently, VA.

NY State has some elements that I find appealing, like Adirondack Park, but economically it’s a wasteland. It’s not a good place to start a business, it’s expensive and government regulations are burdensome. So I think the decline is due to attrition. It’s good that they will lose a couple of (dem) congressional seats. Maybe AOC’s will be one of them. I doubt it, NYC is a different world and the population is relatively stable I think. So I don’t care if people leave NY in droves as long as they don’t move up here

There is indeed talk that AOC will lose her seat due to redistricting. Though the Dem party wants to go where AOC does, they’re smart enough to LIE about their intentions. AOC has been too honest for the Dem leadership; plus, she upstaged Nancy Pelosi, an unforgivable sin! Ergo, her seat WILL be gone after the census. This sort of thing has precedent in American politics. Both parties have done it. The GOPe did it with Allen West, because he wasn’t squishy enough for them; he didn’t toe the RINO line, so his district was eliminated. The Dems have done… Read more »

That makes sense. AOC served her purpose of putting full-bore Marxism (the GND) into play, now time to pull the plug. She’s too easy to caricature, an embarrassment. A cretin, she can’t even talk..hey you guys. (((Frank))), the one Dick Armey used to call Barney Fag. From my very own socialist hellhole of MA. Of course. Every time I heard that filthy lisping pedophile I wanted to take a scalding hot shower. Now with a ticket on the first coal cart to hell

Democratic policies entrenched here for over 70 years are responsible for this. Now here is another problem: A lot of Midwesterners are moving in here—-and I will tell you: They’re corny as hell, and many of them are just as Democrat as the others who left! Only DUMBER!!!

“Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today…..”. I’m sure ole blue eyes would not be staying in New York and waking up in a City that stinks thanks to de Blasio. What a shame everything these liberals-progressive leftist touch they turn it into a big turd.

I remember the “I Love New York” campaign. At the time, NYC could make a case for a livable city. Things have sadly changed since then.
