Newtown Township, Delco, is no longer a great place to live. The traffic is horrible before 9 AM and after 3 PM. It is worse than the city now due to poor long range planning. In addition you have to be on constant guard for deer which are still breeding even though their lands have been taken for houses. Worst of all, nobody in charge cares!

Newtown is a wonderful place to live. The schools are fantastic. The community and people are great. It is growing and improving at all times.
This area can be truly wonderful depending on your personality. It's a very wealthy, well maintained area, which has it's perks and it's downsides too. I prefer a less populated area, but it is nice to have so many stores and places to see nearby.
