Just in time for property values to crash in S. Florida.

Who the fark sees all the news about climate change and Florida flooding and moves to Floriduh?

More than 33,500 New York residents made the move to the Sunshine State and sales of white jeans and Dan Marino jerseys have skyrocketed.

The most popular counties for New Yorkers in 2019, 2020 and the first part of this year were Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade,

New Yorkers moving to  south Florida.  Isn't this a repeat from just about every year for the last 50 years?

FL is probably half former New Yorkers or their kids..  Seems that way at least.  This is not new but maybe has picked up a lot.

I always assumed that Florida Man is usually originally from Staten Island or New Jersey.

Grew up in Queens, living in North Florida, getting a kick out of this thread.

Among the excuses around colonialism was the notion that the natives weren't yet capable of self-governance.  Hopefully our Northern settlers can help sway their guide politics.

Everyone in NY and NJ moves down to Florida....

I know what site I'm on, but NYers moving down to FL is the opposite of news.

I lived in Florida during the pandemic. And during that time I moved as far away from Florida as you can possibly get.

At least 1/3 are from Ohio.

Just remember, as one very smart Sheriff said. Don't vote down here like you voted up there.

Yep. My sis and her hubby been there 28 yrs and have the audacity to call the "come down for winter in the north" people "snowbirds".  Cracks me up.  You are safe from me...WAY too humid for me.  Ashamed to say I live in Ohio.  The state that gave the country the idiot gym jordan.

Wow- talk about damning with faint praise. Ouch.

Florida is like Lady Liberty to plenty of New Yorkers and New Jerseyeans (who were once New Yorkers). That's why Florida is the way it is:

"Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Florida is nice to visit, but I could never live there.

/sorry for littering your state with trash

No, no they don't.


That's just an excuse Florida uses to deny the existence of Florida man.


Your state sucks.

In the south we say the ones who come down for the winter are damned yankees. Those who move here are goddamned yankees.

It's not that the bottom of Florida's bell curve is lower than any other state's that makes Florida Man a thing.  It's how far to the left the middle of the curve is compared to everywhere else.

And that lopsided distribution isn't from people who were born there, those people get the same RNG as the rest of us.  It's the people that self-select by moving there.

Grew up in Ft. Lauderdale in the 70's and 80's.  Parents were from Staten Island.

I wisely moved away a long time ago.

Grumpy Cat: Florida is nice to visit, but I could never live there.


Yeah, in the dead of winter it's a nice break from the cold weather.

But after a few days, I quickly find it underwhelming.
 
2021-07-26 1:11:14 PM  
Yeah, despite what the article states, those people aren't there to stay.  At least until the retire.

A lot of those work for financial institutions that haven't fully moved back to full-time on-site work yet.

When that happens expect that number to go down drastically.

I've ordered quite a few circuits and managed the installs for those types clients.  Talking to my POC for said companies have been saying it's only temporary and that the emails from C-Suites are saying prepare to come back into work.

But go ahead florida, feel superior for a while.

I always considered NY man the pupal stage of Florida man.

I can understand your point.

Was there in the early 80s for 5 weeks when it got really cold in December (was warmer in ohio)  I actually laid out and got a tan and was able to collect shells at low tide because I was the only one on the beach.  Passagrill outside of Tampa, could look out my window and see the Don Caesar hotel.
 
2021-07-26 1:52:12 PM  
I've always had a strong suspicion that "Florida man" stories were about people not actually born in Florida.

Hey I resemble that !    ,I was an Ohioan back in the late 80s and was living in West Palm , Royal Palm , After 4-5 years living in that hole I decided that bringing up children in hoods that have 8-10 year old selling crack on the corner was not a good idea.

I went back to OH-HI-O

Did you think Florida man was exclusively native?  I mean sure, native Floridians are dumb, but it takes a special type of stupid to decide to move there.

/would probably take a NASA supporting job around the Cape
//but that's about it for moving to Florida
///would hug Lake Ontario, an infinite source of fresh water that's unlikely to flood me

I would have moved away from Ft. Lauderdale too.  Fun to visit but not to live.  To many people down there and it still blows my mind when you drive west through nothing but sprawl and then bam, everglades, nothing at all (but cane fields).
