And given the fact that, according to the New York Times, 8% of all Floridians were born in New York, 4% in Pennsylvania, and 8% in the rest of the Northeast, this is no surprise. In fact, approximately 50,000 New Yorkers move to Florida every year, simply because they are fed up with harsh northern winters. In February of 2015, for example, the average daily temperature in New York was 24.1 degrees, with a fresh new batch of sleet arriving in March.
