Chose to move here when I bought my first home after living in Willingboro NJ, mostly for affordability (because Jersey taxes are ridiculous), city-living/conveniences, and school choice (I'm a mom and a teacher). Overall I like this neighborhood....It can be shockingly "suburb" quiet most of the time and there has been a LOT of growth in the seven years I've been here--rehabbed houses are selling for almost double what I paid for my short sale! Also two new developments for seniors have recently been built. This IS the city though, and you'll have occasional reminders of that (i.e. the rare sound of gunshots, or seeing a police chase on 53rd street). But overall, those things don't regularly occur around here. There are even quieter pockets of Wynnefield the closer you get to City Line Avenue. If I had it to do all over again, I just would've bought a bigger house in Wynnefield. PS-most houses have a garage, which is nice!

I was born and raised in Wynnefield. It is a usually a quiet neighborhood with an occasional disturbance during the summer months. Wynnefield is a place to raise your children and create longtime friendships and relationships with neighbors. The key to a great neighborhood is the relationship you have and create with others. Getting involved and being proactive in your neighborhood will in the long decrease crime and increase property value. No where in this city are you completely safe however if you get to know your neighbors and reciprocate respect for one another Wynnefield is the place to live. Wynnefield is convenient to every part of the city. You connected to Fairmount Park and City Ave making Wynnefield a central place to commute. Wynnefield is West Philadelphia's best community in my opinion. Move here and you will love the decision you've made.
This neighborhood is generally okay to live. Compared to other place in the country it is definitely not the best because of the amount of violence that takes place. It is a beautiful are however, the youth lacks maturity and responsibility. This is makes certain things difficult such as feeling safe to walk to the store, going to school or just enjoying yourself outside. I see the future for this area having the potential to improve, however it is up to the parents to set better examples for their children so that they can value life. It is not the are that is difficult to live in, it is the people that area making it difficult to live with.
