Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some villages, Farley isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Farley are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Farley is a village of service providers, transportation and shipping workers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Farley who work in management occupations (12.75%), personal care services (10.78%) and sales jobs (10.78%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.53% 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, Farley 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, Farley 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, Farley really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Farley 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.
The village 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, Farley has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Farley a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
As is often the case in a small village, Farley doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
