8,336,697 people live in NYC according to US Census figures released on Thursday, March 14, 2013. It’s at a record high. More people are moving to the Big Apple than are leaving it. Since the 2010 count, more people moved here than live in the city of Hartford, Connecticut.

No wonder the trains are packed. Aren’t we all supposed to have flying cars now anyway?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg discussed the new numbers and future transit trouble at a press conference today. PIX11’s Greg Mocker hit the streets.
