Long Beach is the 10th hardest working place in New York State and fifth on Long Island.
Long Island's 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.
The report said of Long Beach:
Not to be confused with its Californian cousin, this Long Beach is home to some 33,275 folks that know what a hard day’s work is worth. With the second-highest commute time of 43 minutes and an unemployment rate of only 6.4 percent, you can bet that Monday through Friday residents are either at their desks or on their way there. Once at work, they’re there to stay, with a No. 13 ranking in that category of 38.9 average hours per week.
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.
