"I love my neighborhood...."

I moved here in late 2006 with my wife and child. I was welcomed immediately by the neighborhood kids and families. There is a park around the corner from the house where basketball, a playground, and picnic tables are readily available. There is access to local buses, trolly lines, and train lines. While the commute to Center City is a little long at times, it gives one plenty of time to read or knit. The mayor of the town is responsive to email and their is a vibrant amount of local government activism in the town. There aren't a lot of place to dine besides diners, chinese take out, pizza places, and Mission Burrito (the excellent local california-style mexican place)--but you can go west on Baltimore and run into more dining and shopping just a few miles away. The property taxes are a bit steep and the school system might need a little help, but there are alternative private schools in the area. Before you take my word on the schools, please do your own research though. In all, I love this town. The people are fantastic and it is a diverse and pleasant place to live. It doesn't even seem like we are just a few miles from Philadelphia. The city moto is "No Place for Hate!"
