Norristown does have bright spots- Lou’s for zeps, 5 Saints Distilling, VonC Brewing, Theater Horizon is a great local theater, Elmwood Zoo, access to the farm park, August Moon, Emiliano’s, multiple legit taquerias, access to the R6, high speed line, SRT, etc. It’s not all doom and gloom.

Not Reading, but just over the bridge is West Reading. Vibrant Main Street, lots of boutiques, restaurants, craft breweries, etc. The old outlets have been transformed into really nice apartments. Close to Reading Hospital, Reading Art Museum, Grings Mill. If I had to move back to Berks, this would be my pick.
