It is a very quiet neighborhood. You can probably hear a pen drop from blocks away. There is rarely any crime committed in this area. If you have kids or want to visit the park, it is 5 minutes away. As far as cleanliness, it is spotless.

If education is a concern, then it is worth mention that the school district is rated one of the best in Pennsylvania.
