Tannersville is a tiny village located in the state of New York. With a population of 517 people and just one neighborhood, Tannersville is the 831st largest community in New York. Tannersville has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic villages.
Occupations and Workforce
Tannersville is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 89.52% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Tannersville is a village of sales and office workers, service providers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Tannersville who work in office and administrative support (31.88%), food service (20.96%) and sales jobs (10.92%).
Of important note, Tannersville is also a village of artists. Tannersville has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Tannersville’s character.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.89% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 Tannersville 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.
Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Tannersville spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 19.21 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the village are less than they would otherwise be.
Being a small village, Tannersville does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
