Delco is the nickname for Delaware County, Pennsylvania.more...
Delco isn't just a place to live; it's a way of life. And, Delco is not something you can obtain with a short visit or while you are only passing through. If you never been or don't actually live here, you just won't understand.
Delco is a blue collar kind of town. We're the ones who built the houses MontCo and Chester County. We're white collar wannabe's and don't really care how we do on our annual reviews. It's not a bad thing, it's just who we are.
Delco is something you can spot from across the bar while out of town. Speaking of bars, there's a 42:1 ratio when it comes to Bars to Library's. And, it's cool to be a 26 year old bar back...you're just waiting for your big break.
Delco is in everyone, you just need to find it and to find it you need to live it. It's the way you walk, the way you look and the way you talk. The residences of Delco aren’t cocky, we're confident....confident because we know.
When describing someone else from Delco, you say their name, state that you know them, say they're a good guy/girl, and then say their high school or the parish they're from. That's it. No need to disclose any additional information because that's all you need to know. Again, if you don't live here, you won't understand. (Not being cocky here either..)
When telling other people that you're from Delco, they'll look you up and down and snarl and stare. But hey, we're used to it by now.
