New Yorkers fleeing Florida due to epidemic turn Palm Beach south of Hampton


New York City has been changed forever by the coronovirus epidemic, but Palm Beach has also been replaced by New Yorkers’ southbound flows.

Palm Beach, Florida, has been a popular destination for COVID-19 in spring and New York to avoid the threat of summer civil unrest.

Many of those visiting Florida have young families who are no longer interested in the complexities of living in New York City at such a dangerous time.

Bloomberg received a letter from a Sotheby’s realtor to customers, claiming that the average age was ‘falling from a child’s highchair faster than a spaghetto.’

The echo of the changes taking place in Palm Beach is an echo of the changes that were seen in the 1980s as finance staff started making the sector look like it is today.

Sarah Wattenhall, president of the Colony Hotel and Andrew Wattenhall, a finance worker, is a native New Yorker who moved to Palm Beach in March.

During the coronovirus epidemic, Sarah Wattenhall redesigned parts of the Colony Hotel to make it more conducive to the influx of families visiting the area, adding de Gernay wallpaper and making some furniture stain-proof.

Another New Yorker who recently relocated from New York to Palm Beach is Anna Rechecheva, who worked at Citigroup before starting her own hedge fund.

“Without an epidemic, this step would not have been as easy,” Retcheva told Bloomberg. ‘I am able to concentrate without much attention, but have the ability to take advantage of the good weather.’

Palm Beach Day Academy, an ed-ed private school for pre-K to ninth-grade students, has added 65 new students from the Northeast US over the past several months.

Additionally, with the influx of young families from New York, demand for teenagers and householders has increased.

The Wellington Agency, a domestic staffing agency with outposts in New York and Palm Beach, is training new hires on Zoom before beginning to work with wealthy clients for the first time.

There is no indication that New Yorkers are going to close their roots in Palm Beach anytime soon.

The South Florida Business Journal bought a New York investment group an apartment complex on the island for $ 47 million.

Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs is looking to move its asset management division to Palm Beach, though not everyone is a believer in the rumor.

‘The whole idea that financial services, such as hedge funds, are going to be the creators of this huge jobs is ridiculous’ developer Jeff Green told The Palm Beach Post.

‘I think some people will come here, they will try it, move some people and see if more people come, but I think every hedge fund is leaving New York City and going to Palm Beach.’

What’s not silly is the departure of New York from the most populous city in 2020.

More than 300,000 people are estimated to have left the city since the onset of the epidemic, according to an address request obtained by the New York Post in November.

There were 295,103 address requests by residents of the city to the US Postal Service from March to October.

Since a request involves a house, the number of people who actually leave the city is much higher than the 295,000 people who fled.

There were 244,895 requests from March to July alone, when in 2019 there were just over 101,000 requests in the same time period.

The change of more than 13,000 address requests listed a forwarding address in Palm Beach, Broward or Miami-Dade County.

Many of these people are likely to leave the city due to COVID-19, as New York City was the epicenter of the virus during its early days in the United States.

The latest figures show more than 364,000 by coronoviruses in NYC and the city has suffered 24,526 deaths as a result of COVID-19.

Those visiting Palm Beach to avoid coronovirus may not have the luck they would expect: The county has seen 72,706 COVID-19 cases and 1,768 deaths.

Crime is another reason people are fleeing the city. While the crime rate is slightly lower than a year ago, the city has a murder rate of 39.7 percent, according to NYPD data.

Palm Beach, which is much less populated than New York City, saw 87 murders in 2019, while New York City saw 426 in 2020, remaining for a few weeks.
