I don't think Germantown or West Oak lane are really worse than Upper Darby, not that UD is that bad either. Also weren't you the guy who thought Germantown was around like, Germantown and Lehigh?

Thats fine, it's just weird to judge a neighborhood if you don't know where it is.

There are areas in Gtown and WOL that are WAY better than areas of UD. I think it's a block by block thing really.

Also Germantown is on the cusp of gentrifying right now I think. There are a lot of rehabs and new construction going on around there

I guess There's not much going for that particular area. Most people don't probably even drive that far up Market.

Did you bother reading the thread or is your MO just to move around various C-D boards and create random posts on "dead" threads? Lol

There you all go again. Time and time again, it's the same people.

Upper Darby sucks huh? Cool. Stop talking about it like you have a clue. It's been like 20 years, and you were never from here to begin with.

Nice little jab, Pilot. Springfield is a suburb of Upper Darby and Chester and has largely forgettable housing stock. I laugh whenever I hear about kids from your neck of the woods becoming addicts and doing other trashy things and committing crimes or pulling knives in fights. Serves fake snobs like you right. Also, we've been moving into your neighborhood for years now, along with plenty of people from Philly. Hi, neighbor! I hear people like you are fleeing to Broomall now to get away from us. That makes me so sad. Your contributions of zero sense of community to your suburban hometown and blaming literally everybody else for your township's problems will be so missed!

Literally none of the "old timers" posting are even remotely from Upper Darby so you aren't actually old timers. You're tourists.

If you want to know about Upper Darby, feel free to ask people who aren't snobs and actually CURRENTLY live in or are from the township. Thanks.
