Bryn Mawr Reviews
Bryn Mawr is a beautiful area, with wonderful schools and some nice restaurants. There are a fair number of Indian residents, but in general the neighborhood skews very much towards Caucasians. Despite the college there, the nightlife is near non-existent with only a few bars around town and none of them particularly cheap or seedy. Depending on your age, that could be a positive or a negative! It's definitely a wealthy neighborhood.
Clean, beautiful, and friendly, Bryn Mawr has provided me with an amazing setting to spend the majority of my life. I began my Bryn Mawr experience when I was 4 years old when I began at The Shipley School, though it was only two years ago that I moved to live in Bryn Mawr as well. Though I may not live in the wealthiest part of the neighborhood, it is one of the most friendly and safe places I have spent an extended period of time. The only negative I can think of are the entitled drivers (and people) who frequent the La Colombes and spin arenas.
Bryn Mawr has been a friendly, supportive, and very involved community to live in. With different areas ranging from upper class to middle class to lower middle class, I have never seen any discrimination at any school or community events. With every local business, park, school, and work place all being very inviting and supportive of the people who live in the area. It would be nice to see the town take a bit more action in helping out the inner city communities.
