Centre Island Profile


Overview

Centre Island is a tiny coastal village (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 409 people and just one neighborhood, Centre Island is the 867th largest community in New York. Much of the housing stock in Centre Island was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic villages in the country.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Centre Island is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 94.52% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Centre Island is a village of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Centre Island who work in management occupations (21.46%), sales jobs (17.81%), and art, media, and design (10.50%).

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

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 13.02% 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

Because of many things, Centre Island is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Centre Island really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Centre Island perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Centre Island 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

One downside of living in Centre Island is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Centre Island, the average commute to work is 45.88 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the village, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.

Even though Centre Island is a smaller village, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly the train for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
