Are you back on the sauce by any chance?

If you are going stray from your own board stick with the facts. Your misinformation will not suffice here.

If posters come to the Philadlephia board with emphasis on affordability we lead them towards Gloucester,Camden and Salem Counties. You might get away with your circus act on the NJ and NY boards but your act isnt going to fly here.

It is what it is bro. I tell it as it is. PA is a natural destination for retiring or downsizing NJ folk. Certainly not the main line but the PA burbs in general to the north and west. PA is very affordable in most locations. South Jersey also benefits from the flight out of Philly in search of better quality of life.

Good evening.

It appears that this thread topic has inspired a return to a long standing debate about preferred suburban areas. That's fine... but let's keep the debate civil and the criticism constructive.

Thank you.

Bristol Boro and specificly The Hariman neighborhood directly on the Delaware River in lower Bucks County sounds perfect for you. It is a charming little victorian town that time forgot. "Bristol township", adjacent to but not part of Bristol Boro is a low income area that keeps prices in the boro lower then they should be. Also as I said few people know that it even exists.

I'm moving from Voorhees to Gloucester City. Gcity is affordable in that the retail tax is only 3.5%, the marina is up-and-coming, you can walk or bike everywhere and the people are so nice! Real estate taxes are low, too and the espresso bar on King St, owned by Glenn Hastings, is wonderful! I can't wait to move there!
