The East Village has a reputation as a haven for recent college grads who don’t stay very long, and a new study seems to corroborate that.

The neighborhood saw the largest outflow of residents over the course of 2016 along with the East 20s, according to Updater, a website that helps people relocate. “Residents moved to gain more space, lower their rent, or buy their first home,” Updater CEO David Greenberg told DNAinfo.

Most residents who left the East Village and the East 20s moved to Hell’s Kitchen, Carnegie Hill, Murray Hill and the Upper West Side.

Meanwhile, the Bronx neighborhoods Spuyten Duyvil and Kingsbridge saw a noticeable increase in the influx of new residents. Hunts Point and Mott Haven saw the biggest influx in the borough. The borough has seen growing interest from developers who are betting that it will attract more residents who are priced out of Brooklyn or Queens.

In Brooklyn, Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bushwick drew the largest number of new residents, while Long Island City, Astoria and Sunnyside were the most popular neighborhoods in Queens. [DNAinfo] — Konrad Putzier
