Occupations and Workforce
Quogue is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 90.86% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Quogue is a village of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Quogue who work in sales jobs (20.57%), office and administrative support (18.57%) and management occupations (18.29%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.01% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Quogue is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the village’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Because of many things, Quogue is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Quogue really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Quogue perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
Quogue is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
In Quogue, a lot of people use the train to get to work every day though Quogue is a relatively small village. Those that ride the train are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
