"A place located near everything!"

This area has a lot to offer since it's right there against the Boulevard. There are stores all up and down the the corner streets like the Boulevard and Grant. There are five gyms: Bally's, Gold's gym, Retro Fitness, Planet Fitness and LA Fitness. All are pretty much near each other and have different price ranges and luxuries so there's something for everyone. The places to eat are abundant as well. There are many fast food places for on the go like Chik-fil-a, but there's also a lot of sit down restaurants. On Welsh and the Boulevard is this Italian place that's charming with good food and the pricing isn't bad either. There's a good Mexican food place as well on the same plaza that has great decor and yummy food. In the big plaza though, that's Grant and the Boulevard, there's a whole host of stores that are really helpful if you need to get things done around the house. There's a Walmart, Lowe's, HHGreg, and even a craft store to fulfill all your wants. There's a pet store on the same plaza if you want a furry friend to share your new home with. The restaurants on whatever plaza though are nice and there are some that aren't chain restaurants which is good for experiencing new things. There's an amazing Indian food restaurant behind the Nifty Fifty's eatery. It offers takeout or eat it. The decor isn't much, but the food is the best and the prices not bad.

"Its an aiport neighborhood- what do you expect?"

I can’t imagine wanting to live anywhere near an airport unless you are doing so for the convenience of being close to the airport for travel or work purposes. When residential homes started popping up near Northeast International Airport a noise abatement procedure was enforced for pilots. Despite the promise of keeping the noise down, the area is still pretty bare.

The neighborhood is primarily an industrial area with companies like Nabisco and Pepsi Cola and other companies distributing from the area. A lot of the property around Northeast International Airport seems lonely with many closed down factories and abandoned buildings. When the area lost most of its manufacturing industry many people left the neighborhood behind. This didn’t stop the construction of outlet malls though. There are plenty of those around and many of them have empty store fronts.

If you do live in this area you’re at least close to some of the nicer parks and recreational areas of the city, like Pennypack Park and Fox Chase Farms. You also have access to public transportation and parking is abundant, because no one is going to the Northeast Philadelphia Airport to hang out. The website for the airport even gives you suggestions on things to do that are far away from the neighborhood.
Pros
  • near Pennypack Park and Fox Chase
  • public transit
Cons
  • air traffic
  • empty stripmalls
