I’ve had wonderful experiences in Darby. Transportation is great, easy to get around not too far from the city about 15 to 30mins from the airport. Eagles, Flyers, 76ers, and Phillies all in close vicinity. Personally not much I’d want to see change at the moment. Darby a great place to raise your kids.

I have many reasons for my selected answers. For one, I have been living in this area since I was six years old. I lived with my mom, and 8 siblings. I am now 19 and living at Penn State Main Campus University. My family still lives there, but two of my siblings are off to college as well. So there are now 6 of my siblings living there. The atmosphere is definitely getting worst as the years progress. I remember being in kindergarten and my mother telling me and my siblings we were not to play outside for the kids were bad influences on us. I was mad at my mother for this, but now being older and wiser, I thank her for it. The children lack respect for authority, elders, and more importantly themselves. It's a shame that these kids rather spend their time smoking, drinking, partying and sexual intercourse than get their grades right and stay for after school hours. Please do not take this all negative. There are selected groups that make the effort to succeed. That stay after school, that give the extra work and strive to excel. What I am trying to tell you is that there are not enough children and teens that want the same. And what makes it even worst is that the ones that should push them to do well and give them positive advice, such as parents and teachers, are all staring to not care. The principles here are the glue to this complicated art project that seems to keep falling apart. They are the true ones that make this community seem like a positive future is possible. As of right now, I think this community needs more than pieces of papers to tell the adolescences to report to school and do well. If something is not enforce that will make a change little by little, I believe this area will be in for a rude awaking for years to come.
Compared to most cities in the U.S., it's not bad
