Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Barryville is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Barryville is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Barryville who work in office and administrative support (12.03%), healthcare (8.79%) and management occupations (7.35%).
Of important note, Barryville is also a town of artists. Barryville has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Barryville’s character.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Barryville is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Barryville’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Barryville is worth considering.
One downside of living in Barryville, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 37.24 minutes every day commuting to work.
