Crime & Safety
Barrington is a small town 20-25 minutes outside of Philadelphia. Barrington has a rich history, going back to the early 1900's. Very family friendly, and a very safe area. I've lived here for 17 years, and I hope to settle down here.
I Have lived here for almost a year now and I have never had a single problem within the area. The neighborhood is very friendly and accommodating and hospitable to us when we first moved in and the general safety of people is one of Barrington's priorities; with 24/7 rounding police officers that keeps the neighborhood a safe and a crime free area. Apartments and other rental properties are reasonably cheaper compared to apartments located to other city and sub urbs.
It's a nice small town with a great school district. The town is coming along nicely with everything that's being redone, but it would be nice if the construction on the main roads would finally end.
