A neighborhood near the Manayunk section of Philadelphia that boasts of an upcoming social scene and a less crowded atmosphere than areas such as Manayunk. This neighborhood is diverse in many ways, including the age and cultural background of its residents. East Falls borders the Schuylkill River, and can be seen as an active community in an ideal location. Some positive aspects of East Falls: the recreational trails (The Loop on Kelly Drive, Wissahickon, and Forbidden Drive), the lack of fast food restaurants, the accessibility to Center City (via Regional Rail and Bus), and the landscape (there are actually hills in East Falls, unlike most of Philadelphia).
