Wallingford Reviews

Wallingford is a nice neighborhood, but has become incredibly gentrified as the years have gone on. Housing is incredibly expensive, which pushes out any low-income community members who live here. Furthermore, the HALA act that is proposed will likely destroy many of the homes around the area for ugly duplexes that don't have any low-income housing.

Very nice suburban area. Walking distance to small playgrounds and local amenities, short bus ride to places like the Chittaden Locks and Discovery Park. Some interesting stores like Open Books poetry bookstore and the glass art supply store.
The median price to rent is much higher now, and so is the median house to buy. Crime is accurate. Due to zoning changes, allowing apt. landlords to push out family homes...its really expensive, and all spaces are smaller and smaller, with not much parking.
