A new list of where new New York City residents come from shows Westport among the top 20 places –- barely, it’s No. 20 on the list.
And a similar list of where new Westport residents come from has, surprise, surprise, New York, N. Y. as No. 1.
The list was compiled by White Pages-style search engine Spokeo, which tracked migration patterns via cell phone numbers. It said when people relocate, they tend to hold on to their mobile numbers. So it analyzed phones registered in a particular city to create a ready-made data set of who is moving from where.
As for New York City’s registered numbers, it found most new residents are coming from the states of New Jersey and Connecticut with cities Washington, D.C. as No. 1, followed by Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Jersey City, Hoboken, Newark, and Montclair, N.J. Westport was No. 20 on the list.
