I am moving to Chambersburg very soon and I need some help with some nice apartments. The internet is not very helpful with pictures, prices, floor plans, etc. Can anyone help?

Of course...most people are afraid of anything urban. It is that type of thinking that is destroying our wonderful boroughs and cities in favor of township sprawl.

I lived in the Meadowbrook Lane Apartments when I was a young, single guy. Small 1-bedroom places, but affortable and nice (at least they were 15 years ago). Good location off of Wayne Ave.

I feel the same exact way. People have the same "sky is falling mentality" about urban living up here in Scranton, even though we're amongst the safest cities in the nation. This "stigma" has caused our open space to be depleted at an alarming rate for new housing developments so all of these "Chicken Littles" can flee. The notion of in-town or urban living in PA is dead.

for what its worth, downtown Chambersburg is primarily Migrant workers. English may be a second language within the city limits at this point.

Overall, there really aren't a whole lot of apartments in Chambersburg. It is extremely family oriented and built around single family homes. Having said that, my sister once lived in an old victorian home on Philadelphia Avenue that had been converted to apartments. I quite liked it. It was one block north of where "2nd St." changed to "Philadelphia Avenue" on the west side of the street. If you know the area, you know that further north on Philadelphia are some of the most expensive homes in Chambersburg...alas, this was not one of them. But it was a great little place. I also know of some townhomes just north of the Wayne Avenue shopping area between Wayne Avenue and the neighborhood of Coldbrook. I have no idea what they are going for, but they appear to be nice. PM me if you want to live in Fayetteville- I know people that own rental properties there.

Lots of migrant workers downtown, but the borough extends all the way out to I-81 ... most of the migrant workers stay within a block or two of Main St.

You're right about Philadelphia Ave - I've always liked the tree-lined neighborhoods out by Wilson College. Not sure how many rentals are out there, though.

Captain, I didn't know you had a Chbg connection.
