Aston is a nice community although sometimes, as mentioned below, does get a bad rap. I attribute this largely to its proximity to Chester as well as the fact that it has been relatively "underdeveloped." In my opinion, it's a great value: you can get a lot of house for your money without sacrificing convenience and without having to move to the exurbs. Aston is very close to Wilmington and a quick ride by train to Center City from the Elwyn station. Septa is planning on building a new station on Route 1 at "Wawa" for the R3 Commuter Rail line which will allow even easier access for Aston residents to get to Philadelphia and other points in the Septa system.
