Sag Harbor 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 2,268 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Sag Harbor is the 548th largest community in New York.
Sag Harbor home prices are not only among the most expensive in New York, but Sag Harbor real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Unlike some villages, Sag Harbor isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Sag Harbor are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sag Harbor is a village of professionals, managers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sag Harbor who work in sales jobs (13.94%), management occupations (10.43%) and personal care services (9.75%).
Of important note, Sag Harbor is also a village of artists. Sag Harbor has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Sag Harbor’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.29% 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.
Another notable thing is that Sag Harbor is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the village’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.
In addition, Sag Harbor is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.
Sag Harbor 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.
Despite being a small village, Sag Harbor has a lot of people using the subway to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on the subway are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.
