Norwood Profile


Overview

Norwood is a somewhat small borough located in the state of New Jersey. With a population of 5,869 people and just one neighborhood, Norwood is the 301st largest community in New Jersey.

Norwood home prices are not only among the most expensive in New Jersey, but Norwood real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Norwood is a decidedly white-collar borough, with fully 88.87% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Norwood is a borough of managers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Norwood who work in management occupations (19.87%), sales jobs (13.76%), and office and administrative support (12.95%).

Also of interest is that Norwood has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.


Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Norwood is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. 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, Norwood is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Norwood 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, Norwood has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Norwood’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

One downside of living in Norwood, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.17 minutes every day commuting to work. However, 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.

In Norwood, a lot of people use the bus to get to work every day though Norwood is a relatively small borough. Those that ride the bus are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
