Real Estate Prices

Occupations and Workforce
Quogue is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 88.45% 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 (29.58%), management occupations (16.34%) and office and administrative support (13.80%).
A relatively large number of people in Quogue telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.12% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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 vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the village experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller village.
Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Quogue is worth considering.
One of the nice things about Quogue 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.
Even though Quogue is a smaller village, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly the train for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
