Eddystone is a quiet charm. Very good schools, very safe, access via highways and trains. Most of the people who live there were raised there. It is affordable living and perfect for families because it is safe, good schools and you can get to Philadelphia or Delaware easily.
There is a great selection of local businesses, from retail to food. Service could use improvement in some places, but overall it is above average.
