I love the little suburban town that I've lived in nearly all my life. It's just the right amount of quiet and comfortable with it s that anyone would feel at home moving here. The area I particularly live around is close by many store junctions, so it would never be difficult buying at a person's convenience. The town is a great balance of nature and city; anyone can find themselves at home with either part of the town. One thing I feel might be missing with how disjointed is feels with the more interesting aspects of a town. The most notable buildings are our elementary school, library, police, and fire station. Out could be a town daily overlooked for someone to live somewhere else off they wanted a town that stuck out a little more on the maps.

The location is in a great loving place. What I would like to see change is the violence that happens there. In Collingdale there and a few little "Gangs" that cause the problems and change how people see the suburbs of Philadelphia. Overall without the few people it is a great place.
I like the fact that it is so close to both McDade Blvd and Baltimore pike. All of the main stores you would want to shop at are within a 10-15 min drive. However, the neighborhood has changed for the worse over the years. Most of the streets are not as nice anymore compared to how it was 15 years ago.
