Fleeing? Are they kidding? There are more people under 30 coming here to Manhattan than practically anywhere else in the country surely?

NYDAILYNEWS

A new Marist College poll shows that 36% of New Yorkers under the age of 30 are planning to leave New York within the next five years - and more than a quarter of all adults are planning to bolt the Empire State.
The New York City suburbs, with their high property values and taxes, are leading the exodus, the poll found.
Of those preparing to leave, 62% cite economic reasons like cost of living, taxes - and a lack of jobs.
"A lot of people are questioning the affordability of the state,"
...
An additional 38% cite climate, quality of life, overcrowding, a desire to be closer to family, retirement or schools.

My guess = mixture of greener pastures elsewhere and college grads with huge debts not being able to get jobs except as waitresses/waiters.

I hope it doesn't quite happen this way though.
