Edgewood Reviews

7 reviews
All Categories
Edgewood is a beautiful town of 19th and early 20th Century homes on the edge of the City of Pittsburgh. A little over a third of the borough is also considered part of Regent Square and blends nicely into the rest of Pittsburgh's East End. The easy access to Squirrel Hill, Frick Park, and easy commute to downtown via the East Busway or I-376 can't be beat.
Review Edgewood
This is a very convenient neighborhood with beautiful homes and tree-lined streets. For the time-being, it is also somewhat more affordable than other neighborhoods in Pittsburgh's East End (like Shadyside or Squirrel Hill. It seems that some neighbors do have issues with the school district so that may been an issue of concern for some to consider.
The police seem to be reliable and the public works department is efficient.
