Sun, space and lower taxes : why New Yorkers are moving to Miami
Many do not want to repeat the experience of living in small apartments in any future lockdown
For years, Chaya Krinsky, 36, and her husband Bruce, 38, have dreamt about moving from New York to Miami with their three young daughters. But it wasn’t until Covid-19 forced them to work from home that they realised it was a viable option.
“We had always been nervous about how the company would be impacted,” says Bruce, who runs a furniture manufacturing and import business based in Brooklyn with his wife.
“But working remotely was so efficient and so easy, we realised that we didn’t need to have physical meetings or be surrounded by colleagues,” he says. “And that meant we don’t need to be in New York.”
