Most Expensive Babylon Neighborhoods
Babylon is a somewhat small coastal village (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 12,172 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Babylon is the 153rd largest community in New York.
Babylon home prices are not only among the most expensive in New York, but Babylon real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Babylon is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 85.03% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Babylon is a village of professionals, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Babylon who work in management occupations (14.69%), office and administrative support (12.83%) and sales jobs (11.98%).
Also of interest is that Babylon has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
In addition, Babylon 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, Babylon 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, Babylon really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Babylon 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.
Babylon 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. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
In Babylon, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.15 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit.
Even though Babylon is a smaller village, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly the train for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
Babylon is one of the most well-educated cities in the nation. 41.69% of adults in Babylon have at least a bachelor's degree. Compare that to the average community in America, which has just 21.84% with a bachelor's degree or higher.
The per capita income in Babylon in 2010 was $45,139, which is wealthy relative to New York and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $180,556 for a family of four.
Babylon is a somewhat ethnically-diverse village. The people who call Babylon home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Babylon residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Babylon include Italian, Irish, German, English, Polish and Russian.
The most common language spoken in Babylon is English. Some people also speak Spanish.
