What happens when even dreams that come true are not enough
“New York has the reputation of being one of the best cities in the world, and it is,” says Bridget Nicholas, born and raised in the city. Despite this worldwide acknowledgement, New York has seen many people come and go, and this video explores some of the reasons why residents are fleeing the big city.
The city has the reputation of being the best place on Earth, but, still, many people are fleeing due to several reasons. Although over the past five years 4.8 foreign immigrants moved to New York, 2.8 million residents (including U.S.-born people and others born abroad) decided to leave.
Three female characters, New Yorker Bridget Nicholas, American from Florida Malorie Marshall and the Argentinian Victoria Barceló talk about their reasons why they are fleeing New York. The intense rhythm, homesickness, competitiveness are only a few of the factors why people make the decision to live somewhere else.
Now, more than a decade after the attack to the twin towers, New York is still avoided by some residents who make up their minds and decide to go somewhere quieter. Statistics from recent years prove that many newly-arrived to the city leave in a matter of years. The transitory spirit of the big urbe makes the protagonists reflect on the place, examining its magic and letdowns, and what happens when dreams coming true are not enough.

Over the past five years 4.8 foreign immigrants moved to New York, but, during the same period of time, 2.8 million residents (including U.S.-born people and others born abroad) decided to leave.
