New Alexandria is a tiny borough located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 552 people and just one neighborhood, New Alexandria is the 914th largest community in Pennsylvania.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some boroughs where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, New Alexandria is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, New Alexandria is a borough of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in New Alexandria who work in office and administrative support (14.44%), sales jobs (8.45%) and teaching (7.75%).
Of important note, New Alexandria is also a borough of artists. New Alexandria has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape New Alexandria’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.39% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
The borough is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, New Alexandria has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes New Alexandria a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Being a small borough, New Alexandria does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
