Friendship is truly a neighborhood. Most people actually know who their neighbors are and socialize with them. The Flower festival, Progressive dinner, First Friday Art and entertainment, House Tour and many other events provide many opportunities to meet neighbors. We are right between two neighborhoods ranked as the coolest in the nation and they are packed with walking distance restaurants and entertainment venues. Friendship is lined with stately Victorian houses and has a diverse population. We are centrally located to hospitals, universities and public transportation. Friendship is great city neighborhood.

Friendship has diversity in race, income, education background, and ethnicity. I love my new and long time immigrant neighbors and the mix of ages of my friends. Everyone bonds after snow storms or in times of loss by pulling together to shovel others’ walks or providing food.
Very accessible via bus routes to various other parts of the city of Pittsburgh. Not as many bars per capita of surrounding neighborhoods (could be a pro or a con). Outrageously beautiful homes to gaze at while strolling through the neighborhood. Rent prices can be all over the place. If it's cheap then it is most likely a drafty, though quirky and beautiful apartment. Unless you can drop half a million on a home, then don't bother looking to buy here. There is an art crawl on the first Friday of every month with lots of food, wine, and art.
