Buchanan Profile


Overview

Buchanan is a very small village located in the state of New York. With a population of 2,268 people and just one neighborhood, Buchanan is the 539th largest community in New York.

Housing costs in Buchanan are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in New York.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages, Buchanan isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Buchanan are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Buchanan is a village of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Buchanan who work in office and administrative support (14.63%), sales jobs (9.43%), and management occupations (6.99%).


Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Buchanan 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.

Because of many things, Buchanan 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, Buchanan really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Buchanan 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.

One downside of living in Buchanan is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Buchanan, the average commute to work is 30.91 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the village, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.

Even though Buchanan 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.
