The pandemic saw tens-of-thousands of New Yorkers move to Florida.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said almost 34,000 New Yorkers moved to the Sunshine State during the past ten months. Meantime, a real estate executive in South Florida said many New Yorkers who worked remotely during the pandemic are now looking to move permanently. However, an adjunct professor of economics at Hofstra University believes the exodus to Florida won't be permanent for everyone.
