One would think Darby or Chester but probably not. Chester, especially, is pretty destitute.

Definitely Lansdowne IMO. Has a good main street area and amazing housing stock.

Yes, I agree. Lansdowne has a ton of potential. The housing stock is great and close proximity to the city still.

No! Forget about it.

Market St across from 69th St Terminal is worse than ever. If you go there at all you'd know that.
Not a single hint of improvement.

Long Lane, which was not too bad, oh, 10 years ago, looks like crap.

Want me to go on?

Yes, I keep hoping Lansdowne because, yes, it has some spectacular looking houses...almost mansion like.
But, I think, it's dry which may keep some eating establishments from starting up. Not sure why it has not gone anywhere with BYOBs.

I’m no real estate expert, but isn’t the public school district one of the leading factors in what determines housing prices ? Yes, Lansdowne does have some beautiful, old homes, but also has a pretty crappy school district (William Penn SD). So as long as the schools remain bad it will never be an attractive place for families to move.

Many sections of Upper Darby still have a long way to go. Also, the school district isn’t great, so that will keep real estate at an affordable range.

Lansdowne voted to repeal its "dry" status back in the spring, so businesses will now be able to sell alcohol. That should spur some new bars and restaurants and hopefully help rejuvenate it.

That said, William Penn SD is legit one of the worst in the state, so that's a big barrier to overcome in the near future.
