Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Quogue is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the village experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller village.
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. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One downside of living in Quogue is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Quogue, the average commute to work is 34.69 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the village, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
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.
