Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Quogue is a major vacation destination. Much of the village’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, Quogue’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Because of many things, Quogue is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Quogue a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Quogue has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Quogue’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Quogue is worth considering.
Quogue 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.
One downside of living in Quogue, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.69 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Despite being a small village, Quogue 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.
