Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 0.2 square miles (0.52 km2), all of it land.

East Lansdowne is located about a half a mile west of Southwest Philadelphia

It is also an enclave of Upper Darby. The Township of Upper Darby, namely the Stonehurst/Stonehurst Hills/69th Street and Fernwood Neighborhoods, completely surround the small borough. Union Ave to the west separates Lansdowne, PA from East Lansdowne and Upper Darby. A one-block expanse of land at its widest. It is the former railroad track that gives East Lansdowne Borough's western boundary that vaguely ovoid shape.

While it is completely surrounded by Upper Darby, Yeadon, PA is on the other side of the SEPTA Media/Elwyn Line Railroad tracks, thus connecting Yeadon to East Lansdowne from the southeast.
