Review of Norristown, Pennsylvania

Intended relocation
Star Rating - 6/22/2009
No review yet, rather a preview: We are looking to relocate from Hong Kong to Philadelphia or its environs and, via Internet sources, we get the impression that Norristown is a good place to purchase homes and settle, but seems to be in decline and wonder if that's the start of descent down a slippery slope.

Philadelphia itself is confusing: It has terrible comparative stats with other major US cities (e.g. New York) but we've been there and it seems less dangerous and unpleasant a place than statistics suggest. We wonder if its troubles are confined mostly to certain neighborhoods or if they are citywide.

We will find out this August when we visit for three weeks. More then...
