I agreed with NovaDragon about the booing to Comcast and FiOS, soley based on pricing. As far as quality and dependable service in the area, FiOS wins hands down.

I have, however, seen better prices with Comcast, but for packages with slower Internet speeds.

It's a matter of speed quality (FiOS) vs. price (Comcast) in my opinion.

Thanks

Loving all the replies folks, thank you. Sounds like some great general areas up there and i'm excited about the prospect of relocating back "home" to the Northeast. Would that general area be considered high risk for flooding? Stats I found online are shoddy, not really giving a positive or negative on it.

And not all of Levittown is bad either. The only areas of Levittown to be avoided are the sections in Bristol Township. The parts in Falls and Middletown Townships (Pennsbury and Neshaminy schools respectively) are fine. As for Fairless being a mixed bag, again just avoid the sections that are in Bristol Township.

The general buffer zone is Bristol, Croydon, Cornwells Heights-Eddington, Andalusia and most of Bensalem. This region is very close to adjacent areas of Philly and is known as the "armpit" of Bucks County. Beyond that, Morrisville is the only other place worth mentioning that is not so great since it is right across the river from Trenton and there is a spillover effect.

I personally like Falls Township since it feeds into Pennsbury which is a good school district and has the cheapest taxes in the area because of Waste Management.

You bumped a four-year-old thread for that?

While we are here, it is worth noting that Langhorne has changed a lot in the last 4 years. Having grown up there, I effectively witnessed the exile of Philadelphians and the colonization of this area by them. Langhorne used to be a cowtown. Now it is starting to look like Las Vegas, neon signs, etc.

No thanks, what do you know about my reservations anyway? I'll tell you a little tidbit. I grew up there where Oxford Valley Rd is, and it once belonged to my family farm where we harvested tomatoes for Campbell's in the early 1900's. That land was eventually taken by our lovely government via eminent domain to build that highway. So, no, I won't just "get over it".

It looks like a circus, sure, but it is also very distracting and will only lead to more accidents in that area. And it is the NY/NJ drivers weaving and darting through that will cause a majority of them.

Sure it is distracting, but so is everything else along the road.
