Owning a home in the big apple, has always been a huge dream of mine with being born and raised in lower Manhattan all of my life. What’s more convenient than living in an area that you know like the back of your hand. Your jobs are there, your friends are there, and your memories so what could possibly make me change my mind now.
Well with the way things are going now, living in the city that never sleeps is becoming less desirable to a large group of people. The hustle and bustle of the city has more of a negative tone than a positive one in 2020. With the Coronavirus literally destroying small businesses and other facets of life, it has also single handedly eliminated dreams of one day living in the big city. People are now gravitating towards suburban areas,stepping away from the city, and trading in their convenient commute for more green space.With the coronavirus rampant in U.S. cities and big towns many people are thinking of relocating to less crowded or even rural and country areas.
But in a post coronavirus world where dense city areas are tightly-packed New York has been the epicenter, more and more may favor the suburbs instead.
Scared of the risks they’re taking by living in a city that has been called the epicenter of the covid-19 epidemic. “Why New York? Why are we seeing this level of infection? Well, why cities across the country?” Cuomo stated in a briefing last month.
“It’s very simple,” the governor said. “It’s about density.”
Density is what’s making people flock to the suburbs. People are willing to just pack up and leave, but can you blame them. Cost wise it makes sense, moving just 20 miles away from the city could save you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Being that you were willing to purchase, we’re talking cheaper property taxes, lower costs of goods, and most of all you’ll definitely save on gas.
NYC Brokers are predicting housing sales will jump dramatically in Staten Island, where things are a little more spread out and less cluttered compared to the city’s real estate.
In my opinion, i do not see a change in population statistics within inner cities. If you take the attacks of Sept. 11th and the 1918 flu pandemic, the city has rebounded time and time again. Will there be more demand in suburban areas? Possibly, but don’t count New York City out just yet.
“New York loves all of you. Black and white and brown and Asian and short and tall and gay and straight. New York loves everyone. That’s why I love New York. It always has, it always will. And at the end of the day, my friends, even if it is a long day, and this is a long day, love wins. Always. And it will win again through this virus. Thank you.”
– Governor Andrew Cuomo
