Very pretty neighborhood. Most folks in my situation (26, renting an apartment) live in Shadyside or Lawrenceville for proximity to shops and nightlife. I've really appreciated being a bit removed from that, in a quiet area with lots of trees and families. Still easy to get to other neighborhoods and to the Universities in Oakland, where I work.

Very quiet neighborhood with lovely caring neighbors. Most children go to the three neighborhood schools. There are parks in close vicinity as well as churches and synagogues. There are a few cute restaurants and a family owned market. The area is beautiful and quaint.
I absolutely love Point Breeze. It has a very strong sense of community with many active residents. In addition to being next to the largest park in the city, there is a small business district has great a few great restaurants. Great for families, young professionals, pretty much anyone.
