Moon Township Reviews

Moon is great! No we don't live on the moon, you can't imagine how many times I've heard that "joke". It is close to the airport, major highway, tons of restaurants. It has everything you need and if it doesn't, Robinson is a 10 minute drive. It's a small town feel but it covers a big area. Neighborhoods feel like a small town but as a whole it's pretty big. I've just recently moved but I love that area and that it's close to Pittsburgh. Sounds silly but I wish there were more sidewalks in the area, that's about all I'd change.

Growing up in Moon was wonderful. The safety of the town made myself as a female comfortable to walk to and from school when the weather was nice, along with playing in the streets with all the children in the neighborhood til dark. One thing I would change in moon, is side walks and traffic from the traffic lights. Some lights are not in synic with each other, so you are consisting stopping at lights creating traffic jams at certain times of the day. In a lot of the older neighborhoods of Moon and certain locations of business there isn’t any sidewalks, but if the township were to add sidewalks I believe more people will step out and walk around town.
I grew up in Moon Township and currently reside here, so I know the area very well. I have loved living here! It is a safe and exciting area while being close enough to enjoy the city of Pittsburgh as well.
