Oyster Bay Cove Profile


Overview

Oyster Bay Cove 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 2,251 people and just one neighborhood, Oyster Bay Cove is the 545th largest community in New York.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Oyster Bay Cove is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 93.83% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Oyster Bay Cove is a village of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Oyster Bay Cove who work in management occupations (19.71%), sales jobs (16.30%), and healthcare (14.92%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.23% 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

In addition, Oyster Bay Cove 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.

Oyster Bay Cove is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Oyster Bay Cove’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

Oyster Bay Cove 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

In Oyster Bay Cove, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 33.52 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.

In Oyster Bay Cove, a lot of people use the train to get to work every day though Oyster Bay Cove is a relatively small village. Those that ride the train are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.

Oyster Bay Cove Demographics

If knowledge is power, Oyster Bay Cove is a pretty powerful place. 72.40% of the adults in Oyster Bay Cove 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.

The per capita income in Oyster Bay Cove in 2010 was $102,983, which is wealthy relative to New York and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $411,932 for a family of four.
