Most Expensive Greenbelt Neighborhoods
Greenbelt is a medium-sized city located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 24,125 people and seven constituent neighborhoods, Greenbelt is the 48th largest community in Maryland.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Greenbelt is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Greenbelt is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Greenbelt who work in office and administrative support (13.13%), teaching (10.42%) and management occupations (8.83%).
Also of interest is that Greenbelt has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Greenbelt, while not large, also appears to be attractive to some younger, educated professionals, who help shape the character of the city.
One downside of living in Greenbelt is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Greenbelt, the average commute to work is 32.15 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the city, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Greenbelt use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Greenbelt‘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 education level of Greenbelt ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Greenbelt, 41.91% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.
The per capita income in Greenbelt in 2010 was $31,704, which is middle income relative to Maryland, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $126,816 for a family of four. However, Greenbelt contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
