One year later, renters are "frantic" to return to NYC

Someone on TikTok was so right about these people, and how they shouldn’t even be allowed to return.

They ran away when things got tough and now wanna come back? No. You don’t deserve to be called a NYer.

Fox News' Kennedy (and many on the DL) have assured me that NYC is a smoking wreck of a shithole of a crime-ridden, Mad-Max hellscape who have defunded the police and that no one in their right mind would think of returning to!!

And now this?

A good friend of mine had his landlord spike his rent by a ridiculous amount that he won't be able to afford, and he's been trying to find a place and it is NOT going well -- glad I bought ten years ago!

No point in returning yet. The pandemic isn't over. It'll probably be years before things really return to normal.

I'm sure someone will make a few dollars figuring out how this is the fault of AOC or bail reform or giving unemployment benefits to people or the (now over-with) eviction moratorium.

This article seems written by a rental broker.

I thought NY passed some new law last year that prevented brokers' fees being charged to renters, and that the landlord's had to pay the?

My recollection is hazy but I think the real estate industry got to Cuomo who had it overturned.
