1. New York
Here it is, America’s most-fled metro area. Thanks to steep food and housing costs (and the rats), people tend to come and go from the New York area all the time. According to Census data, almost 200,000 leave and go out of state every year.
Maybe it’s at least a little surprising that Redfin finds the city they most want to flee to is Boston — not a place where they can expect to find low prices or more elbow room.
