According to a recent piece by Aaron Renn at City Journal, the New York area lost nearly 2 million net domestic migrants in the 2000s.
Chicago didn’t rank among the top 10 destination metros for net migration by New Yorkers. Atlanta, Allentown and Charlotte did.
Although New York attracts far fewer domestic migrants than it loses, Chicago helped to mitigate the net loss. It was “the leading net exporter of people to the New York metro area.”
We’re skeptical of the pictured sign’s claim that NYC is “tolerant of your beliefs,” but we’re fairly certain that Chicagoans won’t be judgmental of New Yorkers’ spelling.
