Most Expensive Baldwin Neighborhoods

Unlike some towns, Baldwin isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Baldwin are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Baldwin is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Baldwin who work in office and administrative support (13.67%), management occupations (11.48%) and sales jobs (11.10%).
Because of many things, Baldwin is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Baldwin 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 town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Baldwin has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Baldwin’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Baldwin 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
One downside of living in Baldwin, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 35.00 minutes every day commuting to work. It is, however, a pedestrian-friendly town. Many of its neighborhoods are dense enough and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot. In addition, 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.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Baldwin use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Baldwin‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the train. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
