Are people leaving upstate NY because of the weather? Cuomo takes heat for comments

ALBANY - Maybe it's the weather.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is taking heat for comments Tuesday that upstate's winter weather has factored into the state's population loss in the region.

"More people are leaving upstate net? Yes. People will make demographic choices about where they want to live," Cuomo told reporters after an economic-development speech to the state Business Council.

No they are leaving NY/NJ/CT because of the cost of living and taxes. And seniors are moving to Florida, Arizona and other sunny states.
