Lawrence Profile


Overview

Lawrence is a somewhat small coastal village (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 6,559 people and just one neighborhood, Lawrence is the 268th largest community in New York.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Lawrence is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 96.30% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Lawrence is a village of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lawrence who work in sales jobs (20.67%), office and administrative support (13.98%), and business and financial occupations (10.78%).

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

A relatively large number of people in Lawrence telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 7.50% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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

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

Lawrence 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.

In Lawrence, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 37.31 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit.

Despite being a small village, Lawrence has a lot of people using the train to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on the train are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.

Lawrence Demographics

If knowledge is power, Lawrence is a pretty powerful place. 75.86% of the adults in Lawrence have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.
