Are people really leaving New York City?
Of course people are leaving New York City! Some by dying, others by relocating to other states.
And this is very good news, because according to official New York City Government Population Projections, New York City is projected to grow from 8.2 million persons in 2010 to 9+ million in 2040, an increase of 783,000 or 9.5 percent. It was 8,622,698 in July of 2017.
By the way, within a very few years, Brooklyn will have more people than Chicago.
We need a lot more people to leave. Please. Just go. Anywhere. Because there are a lot more coming to take their place.
"I LOVE NEW YORK"
