"Affordable place to live"

Summerdale is a neighborhood located in the North section of Philadelphia. It is situated between East Wyoming Avenue to the south, Front Street to the west, Roosevelt Boulevard to the west and Cottman Avenue to the north.
Summerdale is a largely residential neighborhood and offers many different housing options including row homes, single-family houses and twin-family houses. The area also has a few affordable apartment complexes and condos.
Summerdale is predominantly an African American neighborhood but there are also Hispanics, Asian Americans, Irish Americans, Italian Americans and Polish Americans who call the area home.
Since it is a largely residential area, a lot of Summerdale is spaced out. This means that you need to have a car to easily get around. A bike might suffice too. The public transportation system in Summerdale includes SEPTA buses that will take you all over the northeast as well as into Center City.
Even though it is a residential neighborhood, Summerdale does have a large crime rate including robberies and muggings. This makes it essential to always be on the lookout and make sure your car doors and house is always locked.
Summerdale is a good area to live in if you are on a tight budget.
