LIVING IN AMITYVILLE

Amityville is a somewhat small coastal village (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 9,494 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Amityville is the 192nd largest community in New York.

Housing costs in Amityville are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in New York.

Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Amityville is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Amityville is a village of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Amityville who work in office and administrative support (12.80%), sales jobs (10.31%), and management occupations (8.45%).

Also of interest is that Amityville has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One of the nice things about Amityville is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

One downside of living in Amityville is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Amityville, the average commute to work is 31.67 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
