I guess this info from Moderator Cut: Competiting site is incorrect as well:

"In 2000, Ridley Park had a median family income of $62,378. Ridley Park is full of successful families and individuals. The town has a large middle class. Ridley Park isn't a place with a large population of people in poverty. The town benefits from its educated workforce. Ridley Park, compared to most towns like it, can boast of a large population of high-income unmarried people."

Apparently its close statistically to Haddon, NJ, Barrington, NJ and Audobon, NJ...don't really know these areas but I know Ridley Park so I'm assuming they're pretty good.

Did you live in Ridley or have you seen it in any meaningful way? My friend lives in a lovely neighborhood there, there is a quaint small shopping district, the proximity to the city is good, schools are good, not really seeing your beef with the place...

I've seen it as a concrete, blue collar town. Nothing impressive. Maybe a bit harsh about garbage but that's what I think of. Haddon Township is far superior to Ridley Park, Audubon and Barrington are probably more on the same level.

Ridley Park is not impressive, but it's hardly garbage. There are sections that are very nice, pretty little neighborhoods with smallish houses. Not all blue collar but it's all some people can afford. I grew up going to church in Ridley and had a lot of friends who lived there, some people just like the proximity to the city. Not everyone can afford Media.

Just to clarify, I actually work at home (writer), as does DH, but he doesn't drive,
so we need a walkable town with good transportation options.
So we would be in Media for work and social life,
and I was just wondering if it is as pleasant as friends who live in Swarthmore area say it is. I met someone who mentioned Chester crime, and that it is close to Media,which prompted my question.

tesser Does the crime in Chester extend to Media? I am thinking of moving to either Media or Doylestown, and am moving from an urban, fairly high-crime area. I don't want to worry anymore about being safe walking around...I have heard Media is great, so am wondering about safety, etc.
Media is a very safe and rather affluent town, this goes to everyone, the majority of Delaware county is very nice and affluent there are only a few sections that are very run down but they are very isolated. Wallingford, a very wealthy town with excellent schools and average homes in the 500k borders Woodlyn which is like Chester and wallingford is completely safe and away from the crime.
