NYC Ex Pats Flee to Yonkers

The YO is experiencing an influx of  NYC ex pats. 

Covid, crime, and cleanliness are impacing the culture mecca. The Hamptons as well as New Jersey, Greenwich and Scarsdale  have become safe havens for those who can afford it. 

In a recent NY Post article, Yonkers is in the top ten of destinations for city escapees. New residents are concentrated in 10701 which also has the highest Covid rate in Westchester County. https://nypost.com/2020/11/14/new-stats-reveal-massive-nyc-exodus-amid-coronavirus-crime/

But as stated in the movie, Field of Dreams, "Build it and they will come."
