The one thing you won't have to worry about when moving to Yeadon is the ability to travel. Yeadon is conveniently located just four miles from the Philadelphia airport, which was ranked as the best connecting airport in the United States. From the upbeat Baltimore pike, Yeadon is located only three miles from Interstate 95, about four miles away from PA Route 420, while the interchange of Interstate 95 and 476 is merely six miles away.
When moving someplace new, it is always wise to take into consideration the cost of homes or the prices for renting apartments. For Yeadon, the home values are slightly lower than the average for Pennsylvania, and also less than the national average. This includes pricing for both purchases and renting of homes and apartments. So you can rest better knowing that a dime will be saved if purchasing a home in Yeadon is an option. However, while moving to Yeadon, you should know that most homes were built around 1949. 1960 is the median year for houses built in Pennsylvania. This fact is usually a cause for alarm; but, for those who are into the classics, this is a goldmine.
Unlike other areas, like Bothell, where you have to pack a pair of boots, Yeadon is a relatively calm environment, with an average weather pattern. Both sunshine and rain share their days here evenly, like twins who have just learned the value of sharing.
Well, for Yeadon, there is not much need for paying separate utility bills before moving in. All is handled in one go, except for the usual deposit of course. Finding a studio for rent in Yeadon can be a bit tasking because they are cheaper than the regular apartments and so almost always occupied, but they are just as spacious as those in other suburbs. From there, sailing is smooth for the tenant. On the side of home owners, payment of bills is just like any other place in the world; carry your own weight. However, the most outstanding element of Yeadon is the incorporation of LIHEAP, a program that provides support for residents who require help paying for their utility bills. Both homeowners and tenants who need the extra help are eligible to apply. Therefore, finding a studio for rent in Yeadon with all utilities paid is not so unusual.
There are no actual neighborhoods within Yeadon, as Yeadon is a neighborhood itself, a suburb just outside of Philadelphia. However, the areas nearby, such as the city of Philadelphia, the Darby Borough, and the Lansdowne Borough have a unique characteristic: They have a low number of one bedroom apartments. The closer to Yeadon, the more bedrooms are offered on average. For example, the distant neighbor, Lansdowne has almost half of its rental space available in 4-6 bedroom houses. On the other hand, the immediate neighborhoods, the Boroughs, are more owner occupied than rental occupied which means they have a lower population than the adjacent city of Philly.
With the proximity to Interstate 95, transport by road is the most common form of travel for Yeadon residents. Living only a few miles from the Philadelphia airport is somewhat of a luxury for the habitual traveler. While the airport is uniquely linked with global destinations, if you're searching for a way to travel at home, you can always visit the American Swedish Historical Museum. The vast history of the previous settlers and the gradual growth of Yeadon are contained here. The Camden Children's Garden provides a space for those who wish to spend time outdoors. Elsewhere, outdoor enthusiasts can visit Community Park, a 3.5 acre tree lined park with walking and bike trails, playgrounds, a fitness area, basketball courts, soccer fields, and picnic groves. And of course, Yeadon pays homage to its roots with the yearly celebration of Flag Day, with events, singing, marching bands, and community activities.
