The irony! The residents that flee California complain that wherever they go, its isn’t as good as California. Cracks me up. The place was awful enough to leave, so lets convert this new city into the place I fled.
Coast to coast movers are something special too. I’m going to leave a metro are of 20 million for another metro area of 20 million! Look, I get it, they are completely different cities in almost every way, but it generally sounds like this NY to LA move is a half measure. You want a change, but you’re afraid of a real change. God forbid one gives up their coastal-cosmopolitan-elitist bragging rights!
