Skip to comments.New York’s future flees to Florida
Posted on 03/31/2013 9:19:54 AM PDT by lowbridge
New Yorkers have long retired to the warmth and ease of the Florida coast, but eyebrow-raising numbers show that in recent years, most of those moving from the Empire State to the Sunshine State have been going there to find work.
Florida remains the top destination for outbound New Yorkers, but the new migrants are a lot younger than youd expect.
According to the five-year American Community Survey, which the U.S. Census conducted from 2007 to 2011, 78% of the people who migrated from New York to Florida in those years were under age 60. The ages with the highest proportions of migrants to Florida were 18, 19, 21, 24, 28, 40 and 55.
Even leaving out the 18- and 19-year olds, many of whom are probably college students, thats a lot of early retirees, and an astonishing number of young workers.
Even the numbers of New Yorkers moving to Florida in their late 30s and mid 40s arent much lower than the number of retirees moving at the end of their careers.
This means that an increasing number of New Yorkers either cant afford to remain in their home state or cant find work there and are thus moving to states with friendlier business climates to find it.

Let’s hope they don’t take the Nu Yawk culture and mindset with them.
Besides work, the younger folks probably want to move somewhere that they can safely drink Big Gulps and eat Doritos without being harassed.
Welcome to Florida. But please leave your tired, failed, progressive impulses, entitlement mentality and union thuggery in the Evil Empire State.
They can't and won't. And that's why Florida is such a political mess and turning increasingly to the left.
Every other car on I-85S in NC is NY, NJ, VA or MD. Thats fine, just leave your moronic lib crap that your running from at home.
Mental Illness is NOT welcome here.
I’m leaving for Spring Hill, Fla. in a week from today. I was kidding with the Capt. of my charter and asked “Ya’ll ain’t gonna call me a damn Yankee are you?” He said “You gonna go back, or stay?” I said I was gonna go back and he said “We’ll just call you a Yankee.” I told him I’m from the middle of PA and probably to the right of Atilla the Hun. He said I “jes’ GOTTA meet you!” I told him to round up the Goliath Groupers, I’ll be there.
I used to live in Florida. We didn’t like New Yorkers then and I doubt they’ve gotten any better in the interim.
If and when this tax paying, hardworking, liberal hating, freedom loving “New Yorker” is finally left with no choice but to give in to the socialists and leave, the last place I would consider is that shit hole called Florida.
You know those lights were bright on Broadway-
But that was so many years ago...
Before we all lived here in Florida-
Before the Mafia took over Mexico.
There are not many who remember-
They say a handful still survive...
To tell the world about...
The way the lights went out,
And keep the memory alive...

They are all over the Carolina’s.
My cousin moved to Florida, had two kids and died at age 38, in 1985. One of the kids is a “photojournalist” with a Florida daily and a wicked lib. The cousin himself was pretty apolitical, the kid contracted there, though his aunt, the cousin’s sister lives on the Upper West Side. By choice.
Florida is doomed.
That is all.
Their first act on arriving in Florida is to register as democrats and start telling people who have been here for hundreds of years how things should be done.
NYC should have been quarantined 100 years ago, before it could spread it's infection to everywhere else.
You’re joking right?
It’s like a cancer metastasizing.....
These data are telling: the NY (and New England) locusts are invading and “transforming” the Sunshine State. What’s the over/under in years before Florida institutes an income tax?
They do and they are RUDE and obnoxious and demanding, just like back home huh?!
This is why I didn’t move back to my home state upon husband’s retirement from the Navy back in ‘00, TOO MANY DAMN YANKEES
“Lets hope they dont take the Nu Yawk culture and mindset with them.”
No hope necessary, they did it decades ago. And many of them decided to come here to California to crap in our nest instead!
“NYC should have been quarantined 100 years ago, before it could spread it’s infection to everywhere else. “
Not just New York, but all of “New England.” Everyone talks about cutting California loose. How about starting in the middle of Virginia and cutting everything northeast of there loose first! This is where the country’s “Infection” started.
