Wainscott Profile


Overview

Wainscott is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 904 people and just one neighborhood, Wainscott is the 780th largest community in New York.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Wainscott is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 94.25% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Wainscott is a town of service providers, professionals, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Wainscott who work in maintenance occupations (21.26%), management occupations (18.97%), and office and administrative support (14.94%).

Of important note, Wainscott is also a town of artists. Wainscott has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Wainscott’s character.

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Wainscott has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 21.26% 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 Wainscott is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town 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 town.

In addition, Wainscott 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.

Wainscott 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 town’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, Wainscott’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

Wainscott 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.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Wainscott spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 15.60 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Wainscott is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Wainscott isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 97.81% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

As is often the case in a small town, Wainscott doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
