North Fork is a very small town located in the state of California. With a population of 4,248 people and just one neighborhood, North Fork is the 533rd largest community in California.
Real Estate Prices
Housing costs in North Fork 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 California.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, North Fork isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in North Fork are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, North Fork is a town of service providers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in North Fork who work in management occupations (17.79%), office and administrative support (10.03%) and law enforcement and fire fighting (9.95%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.97% 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 North Fork is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town 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 town.
Residents will find that the town 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, North Fork is worth considering.
North Fork is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
