Life in the big apple

A Democrat shithole city - from the New York Post:

Hundreds of bodies remain in Brooklyn freezer trucks months after COVID-19 began
The corpses of hundreds of New Yorkers remain frozen in trucks on the Brooklyn waterfront more than six months after the coronavirus first struck Gotham — and as the city braces for a possible second wave.

An emergency disaster morgue was set up in April on the 39th Street Pier in the Sunset Park neighborhood – and it’s there where roughly 650 bodies are being stored in the freezer trucks, the city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed to The Post on Sunday.

Many of the bodies are of people whose families either cannot be located or cannot afford a proper burial, the agency said.

And then there is this - from the NYC ABC affiliate:

New York City business owners face uncertain future as new restrictions loom
Even though New York's positivity rate is the lowest in the Tri-State area, officials are still warning that new restrictions are imminent.

And this:

On Friday, de Blasio again warned New York City is headed for new restrictions as data shows COVID-19 cases are still rising.

"The restrictions that are coming. I've been very overt in the fact that the governor said an orange zone is coming. By our own projections, based on the state data, that will happen soon after Thanksgiving, probably the first week of December," de Blasio said during a radio appearance.

And the upshot? From the NY Post:

New stats reveal massive NYC exodus amid coronavirus, crime
More than 300,000 New Yorkers have bailed from the Big Apple in the last eight months, new stats show.

City residents filed 295,103 change of address requests from March 1 through Oct. 31, according to data The Post obtained from the US Postal Service under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Since the data details only when 11 or more forwarding requests were made to a particular county outside NYC, the number of moves is actually higher. And a single address change could represent an entire household, which means far more than 300,000 New Yorkers fled the five boroughs.

Time for another U-Haul Index

Pretty dramatic difference - 3.6 times higher.  I picked Charleston, WV as it is the capitol of West Virginia - a red state.  I also picked middle of the week and away from the beginning or end of the month.  Get the lowest price for each query. Again, this is just a fraction of the people moving - a lot of people will pack everything into their vehicles and other people will hire the job out.
