Why are New Yorkers leaving the state?
The Empire Center says New York State has lost 1.4 million residents since 2010. And the U.S. Census Bureau says an additional 126,000 have left between 2019 and 2020. Those leaving say it is because of the cost of living, poor job growth, increased crime due to bail reform, and the biggest reason of all, taxes.
