Bridgewater Profile


Overview

Bridgewater is a very small town located in the state of Connecticut. With a population of 1,641 people and just one neighborhood, Bridgewater is the 162nd largest community in Connecticut.

Bridgewater home prices are not only among the most expensive in Connecticut, but Bridgewater real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Bridgewater is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.68% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Bridgewater is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bridgewater who work in management occupations (15.01%), sales jobs (13.09%), and healthcare (10.50%).

Of important note, Bridgewater is also a town of artists. Bridgewater has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Bridgewater’s character.

Also of interest is that Bridgewater has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.70% 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

In addition, Bridgewater is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Bridgewater is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Bridgewater’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

The town 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, Bridgewater has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Bridgewater a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

In Bridgewater, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.72 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 Bridgewater, a lot of people use the train to get to work every day though Bridgewater is a relatively small town. Those that ride the train are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
