Manchester is quiet overall, as the streets are usually calm - although that is not the case near the railway line or Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Highway.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Manchester is an important part of its character.

The median year of construction for properties in this part of the York metropolitan area is 1980.
It can be difficult to walk to high schools and primary schools from properties for sale in Manchester. At the elementary level, there are both public and private schools.

The best approach to move around in this part of the York metropolitan area is very often a car.
