Craryville is a very small town located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,303 people and just one neighborhood, Craryville is the 678th largest community in New York.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Craryville isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Craryville are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Craryville is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Craryville who work in office and administrative support (14.85%), management occupations (11.09%) and sales jobs (9.12%).
Of important note, Craryville is also a town of artists. Craryville has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Craryville’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.59% 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
Another notable thing is that Craryville is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Craryville’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
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, Craryville is worth considering.
Even though Craryville 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.
