I lived in Blue Bell for nine years, ever since I was twelve years old. It's a quaint suburban area of Philadelphia that isn't particularly large, and the main quality it's known for is that Ryan Howard (1st baseman of the Phillies) has a house there. Despite that, it's far enough to distance yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city and really get to know your community and surroundings.

I've never had any issues with crime and safety in my neighborhood or in those around it.

Although I do love blue bell, I wish I lived in a neighborhood with more neighbors. I do lack a little bit of a sense of community on my street, but what it lacks in community it makes up in opportunity. There are many places to go, shops to explore, and restaurants to enjoy in the area.

It area is very costly, rent is very high so it is hard to work and live here. The bars are very friendly and the food is excellent. Overall this wouldn't be high on the list of places I would be moving back too. If it was more middle class friendly and younger friendly I could see the area grow. As of right now there are not very many new businesses coming to the area, because it is already established. I see the area staying the same for a long time to come.

I have lived in Blue Bell my whole life and enjoyed it. There are many local restaurants to try and the streets of Ambler are only a ten minute drive. I went through all Wissahickon schools and felt that we are a very diverse and accepting group. I intend to move my family and children into a very similar suburban school district since I have enjoyed my experience so much.
