    Lots of drugs. Tons of pizza places, but no other types of restaurants. Cops will fine for curfew violations, but don't seem to care about the huge drug activity in our area.
    Review Birdsboro
    There is many things to do near me. Every store and restaurant I can think of is within 15 miles. It is also close to Reading and the Pottstown/King of Prussia area.
    I like that it is not a crowded area, but it is not the nicest looking place. This would probably not be my first choice of places to live.
