Hilarious, allegedly a boyscout got mugged so Brookhaven isn't safe any longer. Allegedly!

link please?

Brookhaven murder rate. 0.0%
Brookhaven rape rate 0.0%
Brookhaven violent crime rate 0.0%

Household income is a respectable $50,000 per year. The neighborhoods are spotless, schools are very adequate, retail options sadly are limited to main stream fast food america.

You may here of an occassional indivdual getting arrested for shoplifting but given Brookhavens relatively close poximity to Chester it is an anomaly how safe that town is. The Brookhaven police deapartment and borough council have done an incredible job over the years in kepping Brookhaven an amazingly stable close knit community.

No link to give you I read it in the paper. Also saw it on action news channel 6. I don't live in Brookhaven, but did look for houses there in 2002. Personally I did not like it. I though the boy scout incident was not funny or hilarious. I thought it was horrible for the poor kid.

No the boy scout isn't hilarious, the fact that you posted an alleged boy scout mugging without any facts, and are trying to make Brookhaven out to be these crime infested town. Thats the hilarous part. Its hilarious in the fact that you are 100% dead wrong. Brookhaven is one of the safest towns in Delaware County. Its a gross miscarriage of justice for you to portray a very stable community in a much different light.

As far as you not liking Brookhaven? Well Brookhaven is probably better off without you. Arent you the one who wants Oxfords low cost of living but Main line amenities? I have this strange suspicion you aren't going to be happy no matter where you end up. Hopefully its out of Pa.. Hopefully its soon.

Rainrock your awfully personal in your attacks and I will remind you that personal attacks are against the terms. State your opinion and let other's state theirs. I have every right to state my opinon without your harassment. You do not need to critque what I say. If find you doing it again I will report it.

Thumbs up Brookhaven/Media PA area

I came to Brookhaven/Media to meet a friend almost 2 years ago and fell in love with this area. I was able to walk in the streets in the evening and I felt safe. I met some wonderful people as I passed by and in the stores I shopped, restaurants I ate at. I was amazed at what this area had to offer compared to where I live - Nothern California. I have never forgotten this city and I have been working my tail off to save every penny I can possibly make trying to get out of California and move to this wonderful area and become a resident. Brookhaven or Media, PA will be my next home and I hope to be there next year. Once I arrive I will be the happiest person you will ever see.

To whom anyone this may concern......
Ive lived in most of the places RainRock speaks
of and find his observations to be right on. A lot
of people in these forums come to ***** because
thier neighbors dog barked all night which really isnt
going to provide a useful, unbiased piece of information
for somebody asking a question. To the O.P.
Quarryville is a very rural town, typical of that area.
Farmers, transient workers, close to Amish, etc....
Nothing that stands out but nothing that makes it
bad. My Wife used to teach in Quarryville and the schools
were good and safe. You are within driving distance of
anything you want and some nice state parks and
water areas. You will find very affordable housing.
If you realize you are going into a more provincial, closeknit
situation from the start, you probably wont have any problems
at all.
