On Wed. Sep. 13, Bloomberg News reported that an estimated 50,000 people who moved from New York City to Connecticut are staying put, per an interview with Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont. The 50,000 estimate was based on data from the U.S. Postal Service, Bloomberg said.
In the interview, Lamont told Bloomberg that the New Yorkers are here to stay, saying they are buying homes here and their children are going to schools here. Because COVID shifted the work environment to a work-from-home friendly model, many of these movers who previously worked in New York City are now working remotely from their Connecticut homes, satellite offices or communing into the city when needed, Bloomberg wrote. Despite big banks and other industries in Manhattan calling for workers to make a full return-to-office, Lamont told Bloomberg the new Connecticut residents are here to stay.
