Fox Chapel Reviews
Review Fox Chapel
The High school's renovations were incredibly. Along with new shops and restaurants at the waterworks mall and a new park openning along the river, my neighborhood has really boosted in the past few years!
Pittsburgh is a great city for families, but after growing up here for many years it has become a bit dull. I wish downton Pittsburgh had a more lively atmosphere. However, I have noticed positive changes that accommodate a younger crowd in certain areas of the city. I really think there is an attempt to cater to the growing college student population in areas like Oakland and Shadyside. As an upcoming college freshman, I chose to leave Pittsburgh for Boston. I was largely attracted to the lively atmosphere of Boston-more college students such as myself. I also like how accessible Boston is to pedestrians in terms of public transportation. I rarely use public transport in Pittsburgh, but I've already utilized it in Boston. I do not think I'll be returning to Pittsburgh, although I believe it has a bright future.
The schools in the area are top notch, but it is an overwhelmingly white neighborhood. The cost of living is pretty high, but there are a lot of wonderful ammenities. It is a mostly residential area, so there's not much in the way of nightlife or shopping.
