Report: Rockville Centre is Fourth Hardest Working Place in New York

Village one of five Long Island communities that topped recent list with hardest working people.

Rockville Centre is the hardest working place on Long Island and fourth hardest working across New York State.

The south shore dominated a list of hardest working places in New York State with five communities making the top 10 on a Movato list.

Rockville Centre ranked first among Long Island communities and fourth overall. Floral Park tied Lynbrook for sixth overall. Massapequa Park was ninth and City of Long Beach was 10th.

According to the report:

Workers are at their jobs for an average of 39.8 hours a week, and are are subjected to an average commute time of 36 minutes, which is ninth on our list for that category. It doesn’t help the commute that 93.6 percent of the 24,023 residents are employed, so the roads and buses are probably packed with people on weekday mornings.

Luckily, the 17th place adjusted income rank helps bail out the hard-working joes of Rockville Centre. The median household income is $104,023, which means all that overtime and extra effort really pays off in the end.

Just missing the top 10 were Garden City (11th), Valley Stream (15th), Freeport (23rd), and Hempstead (34th).

The list, released last week by Movato.com, compiled data from household income and cost of living, average time spent commuting, unemployment rates, and average hours worked per week.

Scarsdale, Rye, and Dobbs Ferry took first, second, and third place respectively. Also making the top 10 were Mamaroneck (fifth) and Peekskill (eighth). Read the full list here.
