Most of the city can sympathize with Andrew Yang’s reason for skipping town — up to a point. 

“We live in a two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan,” he explained. “And so, like, can you imagine trying to have two kids on virtual school in a two-bedroom apartment, and then trying to do work yourself?”

Lots and lots of New Yorkers are doing just that, and even the suburbanites are finding the house pretty crowded. Things are even tougher on those families struggling to log on to said virtual school with little or no access to the Internet, or even a working computer. It’s tougher still on parents who don’t work from home but need someone there when the kids are stuck in remote class — sometimes with little notice.

Will voters resent the fact that Yang had somewhere to flee to with his wife and two young children as COVID-19 surged? Namely, a four-bedroom house in New Paltz, Politico reported.

We doubt it. But sympathizing with what Yang did and voting for him are two different things. If Yang doesn’t have solutions that will keep people in the city, rather than fleeing to the suburbs, they’ll keep him in New Paltz rather than Gracie Mansion.
