A rich town formerly known as Delaware Township, located 5 miles outside of philadelphia. Its bordered by Haddonfield, Marlton, Mount Laurel, Voorhees, and shitty ass towns that no one really cares about like Lawnside, Pennsauken, Merchantville, and the worst, Maple Shade. Most people in the Philadelphia/ South Jersey area have heard of it or have been here either for work related reasons or because cherry hill mall is the only good mall for miles.
It started as farm land but the population exploded by the 1950 and 60s. Today the only farm left is located on Springdale road.
The town can be classified as being "very convenient" since everything you could need is there. This can also be a bad thing since it attracts some white trash from Maple Shade. And some actual threatening ghetto trash (unlike other surrounding towns that claim they are "hardcore") from Camden since the New Jersey Transit bus stops in numerous sections in the town. It also has the PATCO stations in Woodcrest and Ashland which provides transportation into center city philadelphia.
Cherry Hill is known for having a large amount of jewish residents, in reality only the East side (mainly woodcrest and springdale) have a noticeable amount.
The East side has a reputation for being the richer side of Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill East High school was ranked 41st in the State for SAT scores (1668) while Cherry Hill West ranked 124th (1529). East high school also has a notable theater program
The West side is classified as "poor" when in reality most parts of it are not. Most section 8 housing in cherry Hill is on the east side (Sergie Farms). The Cherry Hill Library, the Cherry Hill Mall/ Pavilions shopping centers, Kennedy Hospital, and Ellisburge Circle are all located on the West side. Cherry Hill West also has one of the best choirs in the state.
