Rated the safest? Must be because everyone is moving out! However, what natural disasters are they referring to? I guess this is the NY politically correct word for terrorism, as in 9/11! Ridiculous!

I don't think Yonkers is included

So what? It's among the most expensive . That's why, Andrew Cuomo, people have left it in droves for warmer, equally as safe, places where your hard-earned money goes farther and where your quality of life increases tenfold!
