Concerned about development in Suburban Philadelphia?  Worried about revitalization of a commercial area?  Looking at the impacts on the surrounding residential areas? Are you thinking of starting a business?  Considering a move into the state and need to know what resources are available? Last night, State Rep Greg Vitali hosted a free public Business District Revitalization Workshop at the New Manoa Elementary School in Havertown for anyone interested in improving and revitalizing the local business districts.  In addition to brief introductions by various elected officials, the presentations included five representatives from various organizations which covered the spectrum of resources available for communities and individuals for both private and public improvements. In order of th...

2008 is not over yet, but I'd like to shed some light on our local market in Haverford Township real estate.  If you've been listening to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) advertising, you've heard the famous line repeated, "Every market is Local, talk to a Realtor".  While national news focuses on the national averages, you might be pleasantly surprised to find out how our local Havertown real estate market has faired. First of all I'd like to make one distinction.  While a stock market graph looks like a plane nose diving, the real estate market graph continues to follow regular trends.  As all the bad news of the stock market makes us feel like everything is sinking, this is not a fully direct correlation...there are too many other factors involved.  Factors including the lo...

As a kid, I remember riding my bike around Havertown with my brother and friends everywhere.  We road to every ones houses, we road down to Oakmont to stop by Mapes, we road to Paddock Park to find some cool obstacles to jump...we had a blast.  If you didn't have a bike, you walked, because you could actually walk from one side of Havertown to the other safely.  What I didn't realize until much later was that Havertown is unique in that it is set up for easy pedestrian travel.  Being an older town, a majority of Haverford Township's neighborhoods connect in a grid like system.  Additionally, with few expections, Havertown was developed when cars weren't the main means of transportation and sidewalks where essential to get to public transportation or the local shops. So what's the big de...

So you might be asking yourself, what's so great about this area known as Havertown?  As I've called Havertown my home for almost my entire life, I'd like to share the ins and outs that make it a wonderful place to live.  This is just part 1 of many so I would love to hear from you and get your feed back to  create a true experience for all who are interested.If your heading west out of Philadelphia, your probably driving down Walnut, past 69th Street and the Tower Theater and heading up Route 3 (West Chester Pike).  You'll know you hit Haverford Township once you see the latest mural at Darby Road and West Chester Pike depicting Llanerch Crossing.  If you take a slight right onto Darby Road, you'll run right through the Heart of Havertown.To begin with, the area has been developing sin...

A great question as these boundaries seem to change all the time in Haverford Township.  Here's a link to the registration page of Haverford Township Schools.  Even with this map, I'd recommend calling and confirming as to whether specific addresses attend a particular elementary school.  Boundaries sometimes change and sometimes occur directly down the middle of a street.
