New Yorkers want to move to Boston

An analysis from Redfin based on housing searches.

https://www.redfin.com/blog/2018/05/...migration.html

There is an interactive graphing tool at the bottom of the analysis for examining which cities departing Bostonians are looking at, and the origin cities of those living elsewhere and interested in moving to Boston.

Re: New Yorkers want to move to Boston

Though it really says more about Redfin's user base than anything else, I'd say that, from my anecdotal experience, it's directionally right.

I wonder if it's also based on including the broader metro areas - for example, does Westchester to Wellesley count?

Re: New Yorkers want to move to Boston

I should point out that for the longest time Redfin did not support Manhattan. Seems like that changed only in the last year but if you used Redfin in the past to search there you might not have known about it.

Re: New Yorkers want to move to Boston

I don't believe it. After you've lived in NYC it's hard to move anywhere smaller. Even my old roommate who moved to LA told me pretty much everyone out there is from NY anyway!

Re: New Yorkers want to move to Boston

The Census Bureau tracks this in a more comprehensive way (but with a data lag).

https://www.census.gov/data/tables/2...migration.html

Based on my reading of the table from 2011-2015, an average of 10,560 people moved from Boston to NYC, while 14,779 moved the other way.

It would be interesting to see more about the types of people moving: student vs non-student, foreign vs native born, people coming from Manhattan vs the suburbs, etc.
