I moved full-time to Bustleton at the very end of my sophomore year in high school, so May 2016 and ever since then I've been so happy. It's much closer to my school, a 10-minute drive away and the commute is much shorter if I have to take the bus. While I haven't gone to any of the public schools nearby, I have heard good things about CCA Baldi and Anne Frank Elementary School. I live in the middle of 4 different shopping centers, there's so many opportunities where I live and it's much cleaner and calmer than my old neighborhood of Mayfair. I feel much happier here at where I am now and I love the people in my neighborhood and the feeling I get as I walk through it.

The neighborhood is always kept clean, and they're many people from different backgrounds taking walks or enjoying the local scenery. The local playground and park fields are clean and frequently used. There is not much crime and people feel generally safe to go out. During holidays, much of the neighborhood is in a festive mood with lights and the such. I have lived here for a while and have met many wonderful neighbors.
Compared to other Philadelphia neighborhoods this area is safe, clean and family friendly. There is a large Eastern European immigrant community. A variety of local food markets and restaurants can be found representing the tastes and cultural traditions of the multinational residents.
