Chester Township Reviews

1 review
The town I live in has around 6,000 residents, although somehow all details of everyone's lives seem to be public knowledge. The nosey people aside, the town is nice. There is a good public school system and a pleasant park. The town is safe; there was one murder here in the past 30 years. People leave their doors unlocked at night. Kids walk around town at all hours unattended and feel safe doing it. That is the best part about the town - one feels safe here. Isn't that what home is supposed to be, somewhere where one feels safe? However quaint it may be, the town has very little to do. The closest movie theater is 30 minutes away. Most of the scenery consists of fields of corn and soy beans that seem to go on forever. If I could do it all over again, I would choose to live in a big city, perhaps like the famed New York City, where one can walk down the street and not be recognized by 10 people who have known them since birth.
