With fourteen of its boroughs, towns, and townships making the list, Montgomery County dominates the Niche.com ranking of 25 Best Places to Live in Greater Philadelphia, writes Clara Lefton for Philadelphia Business Journal.

The site aims to help people discover schools and neighborhoods that are the right fit for them within 25 miles of the City of Philadelphia. It covers areas such as the cost of living, public schools, real estate, and crime and safety.

West Conshohocken was the first to break the top ten at 9 with Penn Wynne nabbing 8. Lower Merion Township came in at 6 thanks to high marks in Crime and Safety while Ardmore ranked fifth with four A grades.

However, the highest ranking town in the County is Narberth, which came in the third with a coveted A in Crime & Safety and A+’s in the Public Schools and Good for Life.

Further down the list, Upper Merion Township, Jenkintown, and Montgomeryville took spots 11 through 13, King of Prussia, 15, Montgomery Township 16, and Bryn Mawr at 18. Upper Dublin Township ranked 25, preceded by Oreland at 23 and Whitemarsh Township snagged 20.
