Left the state in 1967, never to return. The problem IMHO is that NYC and the boroughs provide the voting block to elect any liberal who makes the most promises to the liberal gimmie, gimmie people there. Kalifornia is the same way and the criminal liberal democrat party makes best use of the myrmidons inhabiting the major cities. I always felt that if every citizen voted for a conservative, a republican, whatever, the city would elect the liberal. The election map for hitlary clinton was typical, the city, the boroughs, and every major city from Buffalo to Albany to NYC gave her the victory. schumer's victory always are because of these areas and means NY will always be a den of criminals.
