According to The Wall Street Journal, millennials between the ages of 25 and 39 are departing from The Big Apple (my ol' hometown of New York City) that is a decline of roughly twice the size in each of the three previous years. Crains NY stated millenials are leaving The Empire state as a whole and seeking new places to live. This is due to a change in the current working environment as this group of individuals plan to work remotely due to recent developments of the COVID-19 pandemic.
