Review Blue Bell
I lived in Blue Bell for nine years, ever since I was twelve years old. It's a quaint suburban area of Philadelphia that isn't particularly large, and the main quality it's known for is that Ryan Howard (1st baseman of the Phillies) has a house there. Despite that, it's far enough to distance yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city and really get to know your community and surroundings.
It area is very costly, rent is very high so it is hard to work and live here. The bars are very friendly and the food is excellent. Overall this wouldn't be high on the list of places I would be moving back too. If it was more middle class friendly and younger friendly I could see the area grow. As of right now there are not very many new businesses coming to the area, because it is already established. I see the area staying the same for a long time to come.
Blue Bell is a very quiet neighborhood that is perfect for young couples to start and raise a family. There is very low traffic within the neighborhood and there are a range of people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
