The streets need to be repaved and few homes have driveways and the street parking is tight. There is access to public transportation, the bus, the train, the incline, and biking trails. The park across the street is clean and well kept. Shopping and restaurants are only .5 miles away so everything is very walkable, if you don't mind the hills. The view is the BEST in Pittsburgh.

i just moved into MOUNT Washington 2 months ago, am glad i did buy my first home here. It has the freshest air quality coz of Arlington woods, take the incline 3 times a week and get to feel like a tourist as i enjoy the best city view ever. The neighbors are so friendly , 5 min walk to the Tline am in downtown in less than 10 minutes....... and 10 buses can take me to downtown every 5 min. enjoy walks at Grand View and the parks and trails
Mt. Washington is a great neighborhood where you could walk most places. The incline connects you to station square and downtown.
