Why is everybody moving to Poughkeepsie?


By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.

A study of Americans fleeing the big cities last year found that Philadelphia and Miami were the top two choices of New Yorkers who left the Big Apple. But a surprising player in the relocation rush was Poughkeepsie, which came in third. The survey, by StreetLight Data, a transportation analytics firm, looked at migration out of the country's top ten metro areas and found that Poughkeepsie ranked eighth most popular relocation destination in the nation, up from 17th last year.

Like many Americans who relocated last year, Poughkeepsie's new residents were seeking smaller communities that offered both urban conveniences but with rural/suburban outdoor space. After living in cramped high-rise apartments and quarantined indoors for most of 2020, the thought of having a back yard to relax in or a quiet neighborhood to walk the dog in has made it hard to resist moving to communities in the Hudson Valley.

Even life-long city dwellers are finding that Poughkeepsie and similar communities like Rhinebeck and Beacon offer the best of both worlds - the convenience and excitement of living in a city with dining, shopping and nightlife, while being minutes away from wide-open spaces and quaint, country villages. Commuting is a thing of the past for many city workers who have grown comfortable working from home or telecommuting.

It's not hard to understand why the Dutchess County area is so attractive to fed-up urbanites. It offers spectacular vistas of the Shawangunk mountain range, miles of trails for hiking and biking, attractions like the Mid-Hudson Walking Bridge, orchards, locally sourced dining and wineries, all linked to the rest of the world via train, car and an international airport.
