A mad rush for the exits as New York City goes down the tubes

It’s not just a few Upper West Siders who are fleeing New York: Moving companies say they’re swamped with calls from residents looking to ditch the city — even though the COVID crisis has waned.

One likely reason: The virus was but the last straw; New Yorkers are fed up with the shootings and lootings, homelessness on the streets, sub-par online schools, sky-high taxes and the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

On Sunday, The Post highlighted families who’ve given up on the Upper West Side — now teeming with junkies, the homeless, convicts and others — and are headed for greener pastures outside Gotham.

Chicago Suffers Another Bloody Weekend Leaving 64 Shot, 11 Dead

Jul 13, 2020 11:51 am CT: Chicago police say 64 people were shot including 11 fatalities in 50 shooting incidents across the city over the weekend.

CHICAGO — A 15-year old boy was the first to die during another violent weekend in Chicago when 64 people were shot, including 11 fatalities, police said.

Terrance Malden was shot in the back around 4:50 p.m. Friday in the 9800 block of S. Hoxie. Malden was on the street when someone in a light-colored car pulled up and started shooting. Malden was taken to University of Chicago Hospital where he died, authorities said.

Police said there were 50 shooting incidents between Friday and Sunday. Malden was one of six juveniles shot during that time, police said.

If only these cities had something in common that we could learn from...

People have been leaving major areas to then transform the new areas to look more like the places from which they "escaped." Maybe SpaceX gets to Mars sooner than later and the transports start before the end of the decade.

A minority report of what kind of crowd this thread is about?

- All major cities in the U.S. are growing
- All major cities in the U.S. have a Democrat as mayor

(1) I'm not sure your first bullet is true.
(2) It doesn't matter anyway. The point of the thread is for people to root for their political team. Data just confuses the issue.

Typical leftie response. Claims the "real facts" say otherwise, offers no real facts. Fingers in ears.

Oh, and before you go look for a "source", you'll find dozens of articles supporting my point and one article that basically says, "Nuh Uh, the 'real facts' say otherwise", and then offers cherry-picked, manipulated statistics to weakly make its case.

As is typical, such fake news is designed to make its case through the headline and some initial hyperbole, then discourage the reader from actually digging into the matter by presenting some illusory tl;dr blather that looks on the surface like teh math and teh scyents.

The truth is that, once again and as usual, Democrats are shooting themselves in both feet while yelling bloody murder.

I didn't anticipate I have to say:
Fun with definitions: "Only cities growing are major cities!"
Fun with statistics: "Growing populations of rats come with a city growing"
Logical turn: I don't need to say the conclusion ... but you know the problem with rats in New York City.

I don't laugh about simple wording/spelling jokes. What about this:
The problem Germany had some 88 years ago was that one third of its population voted for a mass murderer. Why is the poll for a mass murderer in the U.S. as high as 41%? You'll be asked about that satanic commitment like we have asked our grandparents.

I think he was still aspirational in 1932. Another part of the problem was the people who would enact his will.

Landscape of rubble persists as Minneapolis demands taxes in exchange for permits

Quote:
Cleaning up that mess is expensive. Most property owners must pay $35,000 to $100,000 to clear their sites of debris, with larger tracts — such as strip shopping centers — costing as much as $400,000, according to property owners. That doesn’t include the money those owners must pay to get their permits. On average, the owners of properties destroyed or significantly damaged owe $25,000 in taxes for the second half of 2020, which come due in October, according to a Star Tribune review of county property records.

“When it first hit my desk, I was flabbergasted that this was a requirement,” said developer David Wellington, whose family owns several properties that were destroyed in the riots. “We need to make noise for people who really need the help and, frankly, it isn’t us.”

In Wellington’s case, the family paid $188,944 in property taxes to get a demolition permit for their Hi-Lake Shopping Center, which was hit by three or four fires that gutted the property. Wellington said his company has deep pockets, so that wasn’t a major hardship. But he said many property owners lost their only source of income to the riots and the pandemic, leaving them unable to comply with the city’s rules.

Lifelong New Yorker says City is "Dead Forever". This time is different. Democrat mayor and governor too busy smiling at TV cameras at DNC convention to comment.

San Francisco just as bad, on its knees, as it were. Really taking a pounding, so to speak.

I just heard from a german journalist living in New York the same. Perhaps the "big town fever" in all countries calms down. (But in Africa the big towns keep growing)

Not looking forward to this year's list of best cities to live in, as they are really going down on it.

Wow. 100% increase in property on the market, and prices down 20% to 50%, with the suburbs taking it up the ass just as bad as the city.

The people fleeing the shit-storm must be moving in with family or moving to the country.

Or maybe they finally went to Canada like they promised they would.

FEMA should fire up the Soylent Green plants that Obama had build for the Death Panels. That's what we should do. Why let a perfectly good crisis go to waste?
