I think I probably know the answer to this after looking at SEPTA's regional rail map but thought I would ask here just in case.

Are there any suburbs near Philly or suburban-like places in Philly that are still in SEPTA's Zone 1?

Thanks.

No. I think its all too rough. You are better off in CC or the inner ring burbs like Cheltanham, Narberth or MT Airy Chestnut.

Glenside is the northern tip of the R1.

Leighland's opinion notwithstanding, there are a few city neighborhoods within SEPTA's Zone 1 boundary that have a bit of the tree-lined, grassy and quiet feel usually associated with suburbia. I would look into neighborhoods around the regional rail stations at Queen Lane, East Falls, as well as 49th St.

49th Street is in the University City neighborhood; you could also take the light rail trolleys #13 and #34 from there.

Yeah, I'm a pain
49th is a great suggestion. I keep forgetting about UC

No worries leighland. I'm glad that we can agree on some things.
