    Bellmawr used to be a thriving small town where everyone knew everyone, however now the crime rate has gone up and it doesn't feel safe to walk alone, especially at night, anymore. Most of the businesses that have closed down have just been left to crumble. The Black Horse Pike has become an eye sore full of decaying buildings and closed businesses. It is not a place I would like to raise my family in anymore, and I'm glad we moved out.
    Review Bellmawr
    Very white, very little diversity. The people seem quite prejudiced against anyone who is different than themselves. Drug problems are big with those prejudiced groups and their children.
    This is a great town to buy your first home in, it's safe, it's clean and the people are fantastic! Plus it's so close to Center City Philadelphia, I'm there in under 15 min
