Are you considering leaving the city to find a more reasonable place to live? Well, you're not alone.
Even before the pandemic, big cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago were seeing triple-digit daily losses due to domestic migration. The pandemic has only amplified the problem as the amenities of big city life have decreased.

Stefanie and I review the following:
