Wealthy Families, and Their High Taxable Incomes, Are Fleeing New York... Forever

Escape from New York, the Post calls the new imperative.


Due to increasingly squalid conditions on the Upper West Side, including two new homeless shelters packed with junkies and registered sex offenders, longtime dwellers are departing the Big Apple with no plans to ever return.

One of the Escape from New Yorkers is Elizabeth Carr, one of the area's most vocal leaders in combating mounting crime in the well-heeled 'hood. She was an administrator of the Facebook group NYC Moms for Safer Streets, and the face of a public-safety movement that has attracted thousands to demand better policing and city services.

"In the best of times, NYC is a hard place to live," said Carr. "Now you have all this other stuff. It's a question for families... to have to see a guy masturbating on the corner or explain to my kids while I'm buying diapers at Duane Reade why this guy wearing no shoes is collapsed on the floor and they’re doing CPR on him."

...


Crimes committed over the past several days would've been unheard of a year ago in the quiet neighborhood that’s home to Lincoln Center and restaurants by Daniel Boulud. A 40-year-old woman was randomly stabbed in the 72nd Street subway station at noon Thursday; a 56-year-old man was sucker-punched while dining outdoors with his wife Wednesday night; photos were posted online of a man masturbating on the steps of the New York Historical Society; and onlookers witnessed an apparent overdose in the aisle of a Duane Reade across the street from the Lucerne Hotel.

...

Carr said one friend couldn’t find a broker to take on her apartment listing at 72nd and Columbus, normally a desirable spot, because conditions were so bad.

...

“There was no reason to leave before,” said a born-and-bred Upper West Side mom, who asked for anonymity. “Now, I’m done. I can leave tomorrow and never look back. If I never came back to this block, that would be fine.”

The six-months-pregnant mother of a toddler daughter just put her apartment of a decade near the Lucerne up for sale.

"I have definitely seen more crime, drugs and harassment in one week than in my whole experience growing up here," she said. "I don't want to see a child get hurt or raped, before they realize maybe it was a mistake to put [hundreds of] drug addicts and sex offenders near schools in the most dense residential population in the city."

...


"As a parent, this isn't the place I once knew. I feel like NYC is disappearing so fast and no one’s doing anything," said the tile manufacturer, who drags her two boys to work with her so they’re not fending for themselves outside alone. "There's nowhere for them to go. I don't want to feel afraid, and I don't want my children to be scared to go outside."

They've literally killed the cities. This is going to be the most transformative shift in 100 years.
