West Point Profile


Overview

West Point is a somewhat small town located in the state of New York. With a population of 6,580 people and just one neighborhood, West Point is the 251st largest community in New York. There's nothing like the smell of a brand new house, and in West Point, you'll find that a large proportion of houses were recently built. New growth in residential real estate is an indication that people are choosing to move to West Point, and putting down their money on brand new construction. West Point’s real estate is, on average, some of the newest in the nation. West Point does seem to be experiencing an influx of affluent people, because the median household income is $100,385.00.

Occupations and Workforce

70.41% of the workforce is employed in the armed forces, making the military a huge focus of life in West Point.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

West Point is a small town where college students really create the town feel and character.
