Manayunk has been my home for over three years. I purchased a row home in Manayunk to use as an investment property and have lived here while saving money for a second home. I wasn’t sure how much I’d enjoy living in Manayunk because I’ve always been more attracted to the compactness and excitement of the Center City neighborhoods—the restaurant, bar, and culture scene. Living in Manayunk has turned out to be great. I’m an indecisive person and when I decide it’s often a balance between many options. Manayunk is the ultimate balance neighborhood. It’s part city, part suburb. It provides quick access to the positives of Center City, it provides a quick commute to my employer. I’m twenty minutes from Center City, from King of Prussia, from the Main Line, from Plymouth Meeting, from Chestnut Hill. There’re back ways that avoid traffic. There’re expressways when there’s no traffic. If I don’t feel like leaving Manayunk’s Main Street has plenty of dining and drinking options. Manayunk is the perfect balance neighborhood.
