I moved to the Hazelwood borough of Pittsburgh about a year ago and I love it. It's close enough to downtown and the college that I'm attending while still being somewhat suburban. I feel very safe here because the neighbors all watch out for each other and are very friendly.

There is a lot of crime in certain areas. Not all but the good and quiet areas are affected by these crimes. There isnt a lot to do around the area. There needs to be more resources for kids and parents who dont have the means or funds to pay.
It’s an up and coming neighborhood that is experiencing growth with the potential of amazon coming into the area
