Medusa Profile


Overview

Medusa is a very small town located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,867 people and just one neighborhood, Medusa is the 590th largest community in New York. Much of the housing stock in Medusa was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Medusa is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Medusa is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Medusa who work in management occupations (15.77%), office and administrative support (10.64%), and maintenance occupations (7.33%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Medusa has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Medusa is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’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.

The overall crime rate in Medusa is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Medusa has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Medusa has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Medusa than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Medusa may be for you.

In Medusa, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 37.28 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Medusa Demographics

The population of Medusa overall has a level of education that is slightly above the US average for all US cities and towns of 21.84%. Of adults 25 and older in Medusa, 23.95% have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Medusa in 2010 was $28,394, which is middle income relative to New York, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $113,576 for a family of four. However, Medusa contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Medusa home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Medusa residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Medusa include Irish, Italian, English, and Dutch.

The most common language spoken in Medusa is English. Other important languages spoken here include German and Arabic.
