Cold Spring Harbor Profile


Overview

Cold Spring Harbor is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 5,106 people and just one neighborhood, Cold Spring Harbor is the 320th largest community in New York.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Cold Spring Harbor is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 94.47% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Cold Spring Harbor is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Cold Spring Harbor who work in management occupations (21.68%), sales jobs (13.34%), and office and administrative support (12.08%).

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

Of important note, Cold Spring Harbor is also a town of artists. Cold Spring Harbor has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Cold Spring Harbor’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.58% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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, Cold Spring Harbor 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.

Cold Spring Harbor 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, Cold Spring Harbor’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

One of the nice things about Cold Spring Harbor is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

One downside of living in Cold Spring Harbor, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.65 minutes every day commuting to work. However, 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.

Even though Cold Spring Harbor is a smaller town, 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.
