Working in Burlington
Burlington is a very diverse and family friendly neighborhood. It’s a good place to buy an affordable house that is decently sized. It’s pretty safe, but that aren’t that many things to do in the immediate area. You have to drive 5-10 minutes to get from the developments to the department stores, library, etc. The local government could invest more in parks and recreation so kids aren’t loitering around the 7/11 in the summer with nothing to do. There are basketball courts, tennis courts, and a running path, but I think there should be more to do.
A River Runs Through it. Our Main Street is the beautiful scenic Delaware River featuring a wide variety of boat traffic from kayaks to Ocean Freighters. The promenade features dramatic sunsets over the water. In Burlington City your neighbors live in homes formerly occupied by ex-Presidents and Governors. Finally we feature walk to train service that connects directly to Amtrak. Go anywhere in the U.S. while your car remains parked at home.
I love how small burlington is, everyone is pretty close here. I grew up here and made many life long friends. This is my home. If I could change somethings, it would be the crime. I wish it could be a safer place for kids and families to grow up in and not have to worry about bad things happening in their neighborhood. Overall, I love Burlington and was thankful I got to grow up here.
