O- they got the information from realtors and from actual inquiries by people requesting relocation info from their site.

P.S. I don't hate anyone - I hate the situation the massive influx has created. I think it rude for a bunch of people to move into a place and tell the people how stupid they are and how their lifestyle is not as good as theirs, etc.... Were I to move to New York ( which I have visited frequently - bot the upstate and the city), I would attempt to blend in, not change their culture. This is where Yankes reinforce the stereotype of being loud and obnoxious. As I stated, thankfully, I know some exceptions - but I HAVE observed a pattern in my interactions and it's unpleasant.

Funny, I never heard a complaint from a northerner all the years I worked in the north, about ALL the southern workers that came up to take jobs. I worked with plenty of them! And I didn't hear any complaints made by the southerners about the good paying jobs they were getting up north either. Now that much of the northern industry has moved down south for lower wages, northerners are going to follow the work. That's just how it is. I never felt prejudice before moving to the south. And as a northerner, I never treated a southerner as if they didn't belong when they were in my home state. The US belongs to all legal citizens, regardless of what state we choose to reside in.
