Boston Profile


Overview

Boston is a very small town located in the state of New York. With a population of 5,024 people and just one neighborhood, Boston is the 329th largest community in New York.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Boston is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Boston is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Boston who work in healthcare (13.58%), office and administrative support (12.79%), and sales jobs (9.24%).

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


Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Boston has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Boston has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Boston than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Boston may be for you.

Boston Demographics

In terms of college education, Boston is substantially better educated than the typical community in the nation, which has 21.84% of the adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree: 32.65% of adults in Boston have a college degree.

The per capita income in Boston in 2010 was $31,507, which is upper middle income relative to New York and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $126,028 for a family of four. However, Boston contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Boston home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Boston residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Boston include Polish, Irish, Italian, and English.
