We are on our second house in Point Breeze and we could not imagine living anywhere else.

PB is like a fairy-tell... Clean, Friendly, Best Parks In Western PA, Local Amazing Restaurants, Coffee Shop, Doctors Office, Dry Cleaner, Vet (s), Mature Trees, Block Parties... I could go on and on and on...

There is simply no better place to live in Pittsburgh.

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.
