Bedford Profile


Overview

Bedford is a very small town located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,895 people and just one neighborhood, Bedford is the 593rd largest community in New York.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Bedford is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.92% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Bedford is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bedford who work in management occupations (18.06%), sales jobs (13.40%), and office and administrative support (10.93%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.46% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Bedford is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Bedford is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Bedford’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

In Bedford, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 32.15 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.

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