Lyme Profile


Overview

Lyme is a very small town located in the state of Connecticut. With a population of 2,374 people and just one neighborhood, Lyme is the 154th largest community in Connecticut.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Lyme is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 85.39% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Lyme is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lyme who work in management occupations (19.80%), sales jobs (15.29%), and art, media, and design (8.33%).

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

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.82% 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

In addition, Lyme is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals. "Urban sophisticates" is not just about being educated and well-off financially: it is a point of view and state of mind, one that you might call 'urbaneness'. But such people can and do regularly live in small towns, suburbs and rural areas, as well as in big cities. They read, support the arts and high-end shops, and love travel.

Because of many things, Lyme is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Lyme really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Lyme perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town 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!) Lyme 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. Lyme has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Lyme than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Lyme may be for you.

Lyme Demographics

The per capita income in Lyme in 2010 was $52,332, which is wealthy relative to Connecticut and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $209,328 for a family of four.

The people who call Lyme home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Lyme residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Lyme include Irish, German, Italian, and Polish.

The most common language spoken in Lyme is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and French.
