Old Forge Profile


Overview

Old Forge is a tiny town located in the state of New York. With a population of 762 people and just one neighborhood, Old Forge is the 776th largest community in New York. Much of the housing stock in Old Forge was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Housing costs in Old Forge are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in New York.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Old Forge isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Old Forge are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Old Forge is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Old Forge who work in office and administrative support (17.10%), maintenance occupations (17.10%), and management occupations (14.50%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.44% 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 Old Forge 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, Old Forge’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

The town 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, Old Forge has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Old Forge a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 11.95 minutes getting to work every day.

Being a small town, Old Forge does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

Old Forge Demographics

The population of Old Forge 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 Old Forge, 23.95% have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Old Forge in 2010 was $26,662, 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 $106,648 for a family of four.
