Bronx is a very large coastal borough (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,424,196 people and 339 constituent neighborhoods, Bronx is the fourth largest community in New York.
Housing costs in Bronx are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in New York.
Unlike some boroughs where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Bronx is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bronx is a borough of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Bronx who work in office and administrative support (14.83%), sales jobs (10.12%) and healthcare suport services (7.77%).
Bronx is a popular destination for single career-starters. One thing that you will notice when you are out and about town is that there is a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters out at restaurants, listening to live music, and enjoying other activities. They are a real visible part of the culture of Bronx. This makes Bronx a good place to live for young professionals. With so many people in this demographic, Bronx presents many opportunities for single professionals to enjoy themselves, socialize, and to create lasting relationships.
One of the nice things about Bronx is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
In Bronx, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 40.27 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit. In addition, the borough is also quite pedestrian-friendly, because many neighborhoods are very dense and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot.
One of the benefits of being a big city like Bronx is having a public transportation system, but in Bronx the transit system is the mode of choice for lots of people getting to and from work every day. You will find many people using the subway for their daily commute, even though other transportation options exist. If you ask these commuters, many will tell you that not having to drive in the snarl of big city traffic is one of main reasons for leaving the car at home, or even not owning a car at all. With so many people taking the subway Bronx benefits from a reduction in air pollution and traffic.
The percentage of adults in Bronx who are college-educated is close to the national average for all communities of 21.84%: 18.10% of the adults in Bronx have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.
The per capita income in Bronx in 2010 was $18,171, which is low income relative to New York, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $72,684 for a family of four. However, Bronx contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
