A new project from the University of Waterloo School of Planning in Ontario called Generationed City has been compiling data on youthification in major cities across the world, including New York City. Specifically, they have determined where millennials, defined as those born between 1980 and 2000, choose to live in relation to the metropolitan area.
The initial results may not surprise you–young adults living in New York City tend to set up shop in North Brooklyn, the Far West Side, the Upper East Side, the East Village and western Queens. [...] What’s interesting about the project in New York is that it shows some unexpected pockets of youth, like Bayonne and West New York in New Jersey, parts of the North Bronx, Forest Hills, and Yonkers.
