Nation sees cities in West growing

The Journal Gazette

New York might still be the nation's largest city, but the call of the West is luring thousands as Detroit continues to bleed, according to census estimates released today.

With 8.4 million people, New York City is more than twice the size of runner-up Los Angeles. But towns near Austin, Texas, are among the fastest-growing in the nation.

In the Midwest, Detroit lost nearly 10,000 people between 2012 and 2013, while Columbus, Ohio, welcomed a few more than that to rank high among cities with population gains.

And locally, most northeast Indiana towns and cities appear to be holding their own.
