Definitely has a hometown feel, close community, school and educational systems are getting better, job opportunities are limited and there are many neighborhood parks along with a family oriented Island Grove for everyone to enjoy. Unfortunately, the drug epidemic is just as bad as everywhere else. However the town has taken steps to get the community involved and make them aware.
Review Abington
Abington is a really small, tight-knit community where everyone knows what's going on around town. Our schools are improving (building a new middle/high school in the coming year) and so are our town programs and community. Overall, Abington is great place to live
It's a small town that has a strong community that cares for one another. When one suffers a tragedy the community comes together to support that family. Abington lost a dad on 9/11 when his plane hit the second tower. Every year we hold a memorial race in his honor. For a little town we have suffered much loss but through it all we stand together and lean on one another. No one is forgotten.
