I really love the new changes that are taking place to improve the area. Everything from new restaurants, stores, health care and even the Free Store.

The part of Braddock that I live in is very secure and quiet. I have never had an issue and feel very safe in my home. While there are areas of Braddock that are quite poor, my area is more middle class. I would like to see some of the unoccupied buildings to be either torn down or reoccupied, cleaning up the town a bit.
It is really close to the waterfront, but it is a little run down and the roads need a lot of work. It is an easy commute time to the parkway to avoid the massive traffic in the morning and evenings because the exit is right before the tunnels.
