LIVING IN BALDWIN

Baldwin is a medium-sized coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 24,368 people and six constituent neighborhoods, Baldwin is the 68th largest community in New York.

Housing costs in Baldwin 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 towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Baldwin is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Baldwin is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Baldwin who work in office and administrative support (14.71%), management occupations (11.34%), and sales jobs (10.67%).
Baldwin 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, Baldwin’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

One of the nice things about Baldwin 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 Baldwin, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 35.97 minutes every day commuting to work. It is, however, a pedestrian-friendly town. Many of its neighborhoods are dense enough and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot. In addition, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.

Although the majority of commuting trips in the town are by private automobile, Baldwin is somewhat unusual for a town of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the train helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Baldwin area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.

The citizens of Baldwin are very well educated compared to the average community in the nation: 38.08% of adults in Baldwin have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
