Fox News reported that even more New Yorkers departed since several people could live at the same address.
“Since the data details only when 11 or more forwarding requests were made to a particular county outside NYC, the number of moves is actually higher,” the publication said. “And a single address change could represent an entire household, which means far more than 300,000 New Yorkers fled the five boroughs.”
In comparison, nearly 59 percent fewer New Yorkers left the city back in 2019, with just 101,342 recorded between March and July last year.
Manhattan Institute Director of State and Local Policy Michael Hendrix believes many Americans are “afraid” of becoming another CCP Virus statistic and think it is safer to live in quieter neighborhoods.
“They are afraid of catching a deadly virus, and they are afraid of crime and other quality of life concerns,” he told Fox News. “One thing we also hear is about trash and cleanliness of the city.”
