Big and Bright? Texas Outshines Broadway's Lights
Harris county, in Houston, boasted the largest influx of New Yorkers, which Bowles said could be explained by a few characteristics: "It is growing, it's a very diverse city, there are large immigrant communities, and it's a major metropolitan area, there's a fairly diverse economy; I think Houston is a natural destination and your money goes a lot further there."
But does this uptick in New Yorker transplants to Lone Star State cities suggest a trend?
"Is 4,000 people or 3,957 a whole lot? You know, I mean, it's a fairly small number, but it's on the rise, and I think that's the only thing we're saying," said Bowles.
