I asked about Ambler and now about this town as well

Is this a safe town to live in?

How's the housing (for rentals) in this town?

How about supermarkets, maybe public transportation and a main street area?

Is this a walkable town?

Thanks so much!

In both of these towns (Ambler and Collegeville) I've seen very reasonable apartment rentals through allaroundphillyhomes ranging from $650 - $800 for a 1 bedroom. Is there something wrong with these lower priced units I wonder especially ones in the $650-$700/month range. It'll be just for myself and I'm a male in my middle 40's. If I'm responsible for utilities - what could that be? Also is there apartments with part or all utilities included?

Thanks so much again!

Collegeville is very safe. There is limited public transportation (bus service). The nearest train stations (Norristown or Lansdale) are about 25 minutes away. There are some apartment complexes in town, but not many. Yes, there is a Main Street, but I have to admit it's not that great. However, it's surely authentic, but there's not too much in the way of useful stores on Main Street. The following supermarkets are anywhere from 0-10 minutes from Collegeville: 2 ACME's (one is brand new), 2 Giants (one is brand new), Redner's, Landis', Genuardi's, Amelia's, and a new Wegman's is going up right off 422. Speaking of that, as part of the Wegman's development, they are putting in a "town center" lifestyle center. Try googleing "providence town center."
