"Taste of suburbia"

West Torresdale is an affordably priced neighorhood located in Far Northeast Philadelphia. It is situated between the Delaware River, Bensalem Township, Bucks County and Holmesburg. West Torresdale is a largely residential neighborhood and has a diverse residency including Hispanics, Polish Americans, African Americans, Italian Americans and Asian Americans.
Due to its far placement from Center City, West Torresdale has a suburban ambiance to it that many people enjoy. A lot of the houses are spread far apart and include little front yards. This makes it a quiet neighborhood but also causes residents to need a car since everything is far away.
West Torresdale still has a high crime rate. Parts of it can also be dirty. Try to keep an eye out and never walk alone at night by yourself.
The area’s main transportation artery is Roosevelt Boulevard. This road can get extremely congested during rush hour because of all of the people commuting home from work. Roosevelt Boulevard also has numerous traffic lights, which tend to hold everybody up. If you want to avoid the daily annoyance of traffic, try taking public transportation or avoid driving on Roosevelt Boulevard all together.
West Torresdale is slowly becoming a better place to live in.
