Duquesne Heights Reviews

I liked the area overall but it had its drawbacks. I had foundation issues in my house. Many of the other houses I looked at had bad foundations. Duquesne Heights used to be called Coal Hill for a reason. Its mined out and they collapse. The rock slides, mud slides and winter problems on steep roads got tiring. There were break ins while people were at work. Lost tourists would park in front of my driveway. I moved to nearby Crafton Heights from the edge. Who would have thought they have city views too. With the money I saved I bought a boat and shopped for vacation houses.

I moved here 1 1/2 years ago from Turtle Creek and I love it! Quiet, tree-lined streets, a nice park with a dog park, rec center with a pool, nearby restaurants and night life, close to downtown and sporting events on the north shore and easy access to other parts of the area. Low crime. Friendly neighbors.
Pittsburgh is a place I feel safe in. The overall atmospheres are great and I get to meet new people through my daily public transit on the inclines about everyday. I am never under or overwhelmed. Pittsburgh hosts several great events like annual festivals that are cool to check out and things like the Great Race which I try but usually fail at. For people born in the city and that live in the city they know how to get around pretty easily avoiding a lot of the traffic, when there even is any.
