East Hampton is a very small coastal village (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,113 people and three constituent neighborhoods, East Hampton is the 716th largest community in New York. East Hampton has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic villages in the country.
East Hampton home prices are not only among the most expensive in New York, but East Hampton real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
East Hampton is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 88.87% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, East Hampton is a village of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in East Hampton who work in sales jobs (18.83%), management occupations (17.00%) and art, media, and design (10.12%).
Of important note, East Hampton is also a village of artists. East Hampton has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape East Hampton’s character.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.82% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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.
Another notable thing is that East Hampton is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the village’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
In addition, East Hampton is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.
The village is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, East Hampton has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes East Hampton a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
East Hampton is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One of the benefits of East Hampton is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.10 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Even though East Hampton is a smaller village, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly taxis for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
