Most Expensive Quincy Neighborhoods
Quincy is a larger medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 93,397 people and 20 constituent neighborhoods, Quincy is the eighth largest community in Massachusetts. Quincy has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities.
Housing costs in Quincy 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.
Quincy is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 86.36% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Quincy is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Quincy who work in office and administrative support (13.91%), management occupations (10.13%) and sales jobs (9.29%).
Also of interest is that Quincy has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One thing noticeable about Quincy, although not a huge city, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Quincy is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Quincy a pretty good place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
Quincy 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.
One downside of living in Quincy, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.98 minutes every day commuting to work. It is, however, a pedestrian-friendly city. Many of its neighborhoods are dense enough and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot. In addition, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Quincy use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Quincy‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the subway. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
The citizens of Quincy are among the most well-educated in the nation: 40.04% of adults in Quincy have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Quincy in 2010 was $33,932, which is lower middle income relative to Massachusetts, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $135,728 for a family of four. However, Quincy contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Quincy is an extremely ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Quincy home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.
