One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.12% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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.
It is a fairly quiet village because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Quogue has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Quogue has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Quogue than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Quogue may be for you.
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.
