Escape From New York

Sound familiar???

More US citizens are leaving the bay area than moving to it. It’s been offset for foreign immigration. If foreign immigration stops or slows, the bay area will start seeing population declines. I wonder how many immigrants are starting to look at other cities instead of the bay area.

Anecdotally, they aren’t because they simply like it here. The mild weather, the other Asians around here, makes it seem friendly enough and way more stable enough. My wife’s good friend’s brother from HK has a business and he bought here and plans to visit and stay often. The Bay Area is not going to be a ghost town…

Current SF immigrants including those from all over the US and the rest of the world like the urban scene. I don’t see them fleeing. Maybe their kids or when they retire
