A city in located in suburban Philadelphia
in Haverford Township
, Delaware County
. It has the privilege of being surrounded on three sides by the affluent towns of Broomall
, and Haverford and the curse of butting up against Upper Darby
on the fourth. The school district is excellent, and the neighborhoods are safe. The Main Line
is a stone's throw away, which gives you access to all it has to offer: schools, first-class shopping, bike trails, etc. On the down side, Havertown is full of soccer moms who won't think twice about blocking the aisle in Super Fresh and refusing to let you pass, cutting you off in traffic, or stealing your primo parking spot at the Manoa Shopping Center. Their husbands are terrors, too, who will try to run you down at crosswalks with their Beamers and get mouthy if you hold up the line at the bank or the supermarket. Havertown kids are loud and rude and think they're gangsta
when they're not. The cops are lazy but have plenty of energy to secret themselves in the dark recesses of the Swell Bubble Gum parking lot every Saturday night in the hope of nailing speeders. Havertown has lots of Havertrash
, people who had to settle for Havertown because they couldn't quite afford that McMansion
on the Main Line
; as a result, their attitudes are foul and they take their disappointment out on those around them.
We moved to Havertown because the Main Line was too expensive.
