Island Heights Profile


Overview

Island Heights is a very small coastal borough (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New Jersey. With a population of 1,668 people and just one neighborhood, Island Heights is the 447th largest community in New Jersey. Much of the housing stock in Island Heights was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic boroughs in the country.

Housing costs in Island Heights 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 New Jersey.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some boroughs where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Island Heights is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Island Heights is a borough of professionals, managers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Island Heights who work in management occupations (15.67%), teaching (9.55%), and sales jobs (9.30%).

In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.

Because of many things, Island Heights is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Island Heights a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The borough’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Island Heights has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Island Heights’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
