More Than 300,000 New Yorkers Have Fled City Since Pandemic Began

Mairead McArdle

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have fled New York City since the coronavirus pandemic began in the spring, new data from the U.S. Post Office shows.

However, the actual number of New Yorkers who escaped the city this year is much higher than that since a single address change could represent an entire household, and the data from the Post Office does not include the many New Yorkers who have fled without officially changing their address.

Last year, New Yorkers made only 101,342 address change requests between March and July, compared to this year’s eye-popping 244,895 requests during the same period.

More and more people are coming to the realization that this city is overrated.
