Torresdale is a relatively safe place. Certain areas are better than others, but overall really safe. There aren't really any schools, but you can travel to schools closer to the city. It is a very family friendly area and is maintained nicely. There isn't all that much diversity, but people are nice. It is a good distance away from the city. It takes about 30 minutes to commute to the city from Torresdale. There aren't many job opportunities, but you commuting is always an option.

There are so many friendly and unique people inhabiting the neighborhood of Torresdale. You can always count on others to lend a helping hand no matter what. The whole community comes together as one to really raise each other up, and that is something that we definitely need to see more of in this upcoming year. I wouldn't want to grow up anywhere else than Torresdale.
A relatively safe, friendly neighborhood. Not many job opportunities, but it is a good and reasonable distance from the city and the suburbs.
