New York Exodus to ‘Pro-Business’ Florida is a Hot Trend That Won’t Simmer Down

Thousands of Americans fled from New York to Florida during the pandemic to escape high taxes and crime rates, according to one real estate adviser. 

“This trend is going to continue. You already have 10,000 New Yorkers that have fled the state. It’s April of 2023, and already in the first quarter, you’ve seen that many people get out of the state. I see it every day,” Sotheby’s International Realty associate Jenna Stauffer said on “Mornings with Maria” Monday. 

“So many people are moving to Florida,” she continued. “So, this isn’t just a pandemic trend. This is a trend that I think is really going to continue.” 

Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis told Fox News Digital last month that 900 new residents move to the Sunshine State daily, migrating from states “you would predict they would come from” such as New York, New Jersey, and Illinois.
