I work in Abington and live near Cherry Hill. Cherry has more of everything (except hills) then Abington. More homes, more shopping, more entertainment, more schools..

Less public transit, less history, less charm, more cookie-cutter housing, more strip malls, more grade-level highways. It's formed in a completely different fashion from Abington, even if both are large, middle to upper middle class suburbs. I'm not saying CH is objectively "bad" but there are definitely tradeoffs between the two.

There's less history? Tell me that you can't believe that you said such a thing.

I said less history, not absolutely no history, although Cherry Hill does have relatively little in that department. Abington was founded in the late 1600s. It has Quaker meetinghouses, historic village centers, lots of charming pre-war architecture, and other things Cherry Hill simply doesn't. It's not quite as cohesively historic as the Main Line or the Haddons, but it certainly offers a different feel from Cherry Hill.

I go there all the time; the Starbucks on Marlton Pike is "my place" when I get sick of campus and I exclusively shop at Wegmans . I sometimes eat over at the Kibitz Room as well.

The regional rail is more extensive than Patco; charm is subjective, but I don't find masses of pre-fab housing remotely charming; there's definitely more cookie-cutter housing in Cherry Hill--there's some custom construction going on in the Voken Tract, and otherwise, a teardown here and there that provides for a little break in the otherwise 4- or 5-model developments, but nothing remotely like the piecemeal estates you'll find in Rydal, Meadowbrook, Huntingdon Valley. Abington is home to some soulless sprawl as well, but Cherry Hill is one cul de sac after the other.

It's a taste preference.

Pay attention.. I was talking taxes.. Higher taxes = better neighborhoods. No exception to that rule.

Ok I stand corrected. Have you ever traveled off the beaten path with a car (not a bus)and seen some of the gorgeous homes, country clubs and farms? Are these homes 'souless', whatever that is? The Kabitz room is very cool

I see. You mean few remaining old or historic buildings. Colestown, founded in the late 1600s, is long gone. Whatever remained of Ellisburg was razed in 1938 when the state put in the circle.
