Mt Lebanon is close to the city, with a few t and bus stops in the area, while maintaining a quiet suburban feel. Its a cute area and has many walkable restaurants/shops, but diversity is a major issue. Mt Lebanon is overwhelmingly white and does not have many cultural sites or attempts at inclusivity. Even the restaurants in the area are mainly Eurocentric. The school district is fantastic at surface level, but fails to provide students with an adequate education about the history of nonwhite countries, present day struggles for people of color, and doubles down on white washing literature and American history. If the issue of diversity in this town was actually talked about and those in charge began instituting changes, this would be a fantastic place to live and raise a family, but it is impossible to ignore this huge red flag.

This is a wonderful community to live in! The streets are walk-able and everyone is so friendly. I have never felt unsafe or out of place. The town is very liberal and accepting, but there is not that much diversity. Public transportation is wonderful considering the small size of the city. Getting to downtown Pittsburgh is very very easy as there are buses frequently as well as the trolley.
This is neighborhood were I lived for past 12 years and I can say that there is no place here for single parents with low income. There are no school basses or any kind support from community with after school programs, most residents are married couples with above average income and they spoil their kids with stuff that single people can’t afford, sports and private music art and so on lessons. Everyone expects you to have money since you “reside” in this school district, so expects that you will have to do a lot with your kids on your own and it’s not that easy when you have to work 70 hours a week to afford housing in Mt. Lebanon. Other than that it’s beautiful and safe here if you have good income and can pay higher property and local income tax.
