Nashville TN is growing very fast. The suburbs are great and it's enjoying a building boom the last few years.
People fleeing Chicago/suburbs and California are accelerating the growth.

I would chose Austin, TX over Nashville, if I were to pick a boomtown. I donít think itís in BG2008 alley, but Raleigh, NC or Denver would be great picks for me. Since I am a small town guy, I would pick Boulder or Colorado Springs over Denver and Asheville over Raleigh and I like Flagstaff, AZ much more do then the hellhole Phoenix.

Each itís own. What I donít get is moving Florida where a lot of NY seems to go. Boring landscapes , trashy, hurricane hazards, terrible climate unless live right at the coast and like boating.
Life is too short for cheap beer and wine.

I have been told that atlanta is generating buzz among those considering leaving NYC.  delta hub makes air travel easy, assuming there will be air travel. lots of parks. lots of new high rise apts. many parts walkable. good diverse restaurant scene. lots of transplants so not provincial.  moderate winter (and NYCers can take the heat in summer).

Its funny but Ive been noticing a lot of media hoopla and narrative currently trying to label "safe neighborhoods" as some stupid sort of anti black thing called a "sundown town", which to steal a joke from everyone's favorite President, "the 1890s called and want their policy back". Which is odd, because at least they are safe during the day. Unlike, lets just say, many "other" neighborhoods, which are never really safe at all...anyone wanna walk Washington Heights right now? Fuck, midtown isn't even looking all that good. What a joke.

It's important to note that most of the internal migration so far is happening because of COVID-19 risk, not due to other safety risks.

The risk of contracting a serious case of COVID-19 while living in a densely populated city is much higher than in a rural setting especially during the early period of the pandemic.

Another factor is that many of the people who wanted to be in the city wanted to be in the city to have access to street cafes, nightclubs, cultural events, and so many of those amenities are no longer available in the city. Most of the people I have spoken to who moved or want to move say that the reason they want to leave is that the lifestyle they wanted is no longer available.

The risk in a big city comes from the anti-social behavior that is more likely when people believe they have anonymity. Busy streets helps to minimize the criminal's feeling that they are not being watched. So a depopulated city or a city where people avoid going out offers criminals a sense of anonymity without a sense of being likely to be observed. If crime spikes it is likely to happen because of the Pandemic, not because of the party affiliation of the mayor.

By the way, a silly data point. Can anyone refer me to a pandemic movie that doesn't feature rioting in cities? I haven't seen that one yet.

Fort Worth has safe neighborhoods; Monticello , Crestwood ,  and Westover Hills.
Downtown living is safe also and the town is 30 minutes from DFW airport.

The National Association of Home Buildersí survey revealed homebuilder confidence has risen to its highest level ever in the wake of lockdowns, working from home, urban riots and looting, school closings, a national movement to defund police, the ongoing closures of many urban amenities such as theaters and museums, and a rise in violent crime in many cities. Living in an apartment in a city center strikes many families as less attractive than it has in recent years.
