Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Quogue is a major vacation destination. Much of the village’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Quogue’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Because of many things, Quogue is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Quogue a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Quogue has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Quogue’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
The village is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Quogue has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Quogue a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
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, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 34.69 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 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.
