I didn´t read anything bad about it, maybe some traffic problems in rush time. I´m looking for a place that my son can play outside safe, good schools and a good city life near (30 to 40 min) . Bucks Community College has a pastry chef course that my wife wants to study. The downside it´s that the cost of living there it´s not that low, but reading about NJ, Boston and NYC costs it´s not THAT high.... A good 2br/2bth townhouse it´s U$ 1.600 to rent and 350k to buy. I will be travelling to PA on november to do a good research in the area and to know the entire state (Pittsburgh, Scranton, Lower Merion etc) but I think the winner will be Newtown! One other good thing about Newtown is, that NYC it´s 1:30h or maybe a little more.
enwalker, also check out Yardley. It is 10-15 minutes from Newtown, but more laid back and also right along the Delaware River. You will also be that much closer to New York.

Why am I not surprised LM and the rest of the Main Line is being disrespected and stereotyped?

Montgomery county is nice. Rural enough to have nice, well priced land, urban enough to be close to major shopping areas and jobs.

Anywhere in Pa? Probably Wayne or Lower Merion.
