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.

I love living in Torresdale. The people who live here are so kind, and you still get the city feel (because we are located in Philadelphia).
Low crime. Has schools, parks, shopping, and dining options. Close to major roadways. I can get to the city in 10 minutes and can get to the jobs, which are in the suburbs in 30-50 minutes. I'm just not thrilled with my neighbors because they mostly stick to themselves, and I'm not thrilled with the nightlife because it's mostly pubs where people eat or taverns where the older crowd go after work or dinner. Everything fun or interesting is somewhere else.
