Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Copake is a town of managers, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Copake who work in management occupations (20.11%), office and administrative support (14.48%) and sales jobs (7.56%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Copake is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
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, Copake is worth considering.
In Copake, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.30 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
