Census: New Yorkers Are Moving To Miami In Droves

New York to Miami ranks as one of the top migration flows between metro areas, according to newly released census data.

Between 2009 and 2013, about 22,000 people made the move from the New York metro area to the Miami metro area.

Migration from New York to Miami ranked first on the list for metro areas that aren’t near each other. All other migration patterns in the top ten are for metro areas that are close to each other, such as Los Angeles to Riverside, California.

Recently moved down here from NYC(20 years) and I recommend every Manhattenite to do the same…Miami doesn’t know yet what is coming. A very exciting transition is happening and it will only continue. Go Miami and have confidence and don’t bicker about little things. Think big like New York!

I feel the enthusiasm is fantastic. Take the goods and learn but please keep in mind we are not New York. People leave New York for a reason.

People leave NY for a reason. Yeah, it’s called the weather. Some people want to create a New New York with palm trees.

And I say let them keep coming, they are one of the few groups of people that are so easy to help purchase or rent because they have budgets that match the current market in Downtown and Brickell. We love New Yorkers.

Good for money hungry leeching real estate agents, bad for people who are greatly affected by $100 rent increases every year.Why do people on this blog think that a higher cost of living is good for Miami? It isn’t… There aren’t enough high paying jobs here to sustain this constant rise in housing cost. That’s why most millennials

First of all, if you read my comment again you will notice that I specifically wrote in Downtown and Brickell. Miami as a city has plenty of other areas that are perfectly affordable for people in different economic brackets. No one is holding a gun to anyone’s head forcing them to live in this particular area.

Second of all Real Estate agents do not control how high or low prices get, that has to do with the basic rule of economics of supply and demand, all we do is provide a service to anyone, whether they are looking for $1500 rental or a 4 million penthouse.

People are paying $1300 for 1 br (with an hour and a half commute) in west Kendall now–it is insane, not affordable by any stretch of the imagination! Unless, of course, you’re willing to commute from Homestead. Or live in the hood. Or AirBnB your bedroom and sleep in the living room. I think Miami will soon follow in New York’s footsteps and we’ll have to start with micro apartments. But right now, we have a situation where it only makes financial sense for developers to build luxury condos and market them to foreigners. There is no public or private incentive to build affordable apartments marketed to the local 99%ers.

Uh, what happened to the rest of the sentence? You were doing so well in educating us.

My boss came back in the office. I had to pretend to work… Duh!

if you actually were working, and not pretending to, then you could afford to buy a place and not worry about having your rent go up. I am a millennial with a self made seven figure net worth and it was earned, not given. Get to work and then you don’t have to worry about a landlord

Someone’s upset.

You’re gonna get it now millennial, shouldn’t have said you are a “seven figure net worth” person. That means you are one of those people who think that “a higher cost of living is good for Miami.” I think anonymous will now put you in the class of the “money hungry” for that, and that makes you “no good for Miami.”

Hopefully, we’ll keep on coming down. Bad winters, high taxes.
But just know that Miami ain’t Manhattan.

Let’s see…Miami is spelled “Miami” and Manhattan is spelled “Manhattan.” Yep, you’re right, Miami is definitely not Manhattan….glad somebody took the time to point that out to us.

Danny

I have no issues with New Yorkers coming down but for those on here saying lets turn Miami into New York is ridiculous.

Bring your money and your cuisine. Leave your politics at home. If you guys do this you’ll be fine.

The only thing they droves is they droves da prices up.

Scott

I am a New Yorker and moved to mIami and after several years of feeling like I was living in a foreign country I moved back to NYC

Dan

That’s because you only speak English. Most people from other countries speak 2 or 3 languages. For those of us who do, Miani feels just right.

Marc305

Not necessarily true Dan, I only speak English and Miami feels just right for me, I’ve been here since ’96 and I love it! However I am from the North East myself and Scott might have a point, many people feel that way. NYC has people from all over the world as well, but most if not all of them, speak English or make an effort to do so. No one expects you to speak their language. In many places in Miami that is not the case and if you are from here, you know that.
