Most Expensive Gloucester Neighborhoods
Gloucester is a medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 29,626 people and nine constituent neighborhoods, Gloucester is the 57th largest community in Massachusetts. Much of the housing stock in Gloucester was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Housing costs in Gloucester 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 Massachusetts.
Gloucester is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Gloucester is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Gloucester who work in office and administrative support (11.76%), sales jobs (10.31%) and management occupations (9.78%).

Gloucester 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
