Very diverse and friendly. I never thought I would live in an area where neighbors actually let you pet their dogs, “Black Lives Matter” and LGBT flags dragged various lawns and windows. It’s jjst refreshing to know that I’m spit of everything in this world, in this nation, we can still call each other neighbors.

I've lived here my whole life and I absolutely love it. All my neighbors are so nice and helpful and we all look after each other and each other's houses. Braddock is a lovely place to go get dinner with your family, brunch with your friends, get your hair cut, do some yoga, see a movie, or grab a few groceries at the corner store. Having the park right by my house is so nice to go for runs, walk my dog, or go for hikes or bike rides.
As there are more artsy and young people moving to Pittsburgh because it's cheap to live here the store choice becomes more interesting. It can still grow! Neighborhoods like Lawrenceville already provide a wide variety of local businesses with interesting products. There is a local fashion scene and there are a lot of very cool second hand clothing stores.

A lot of the big corporate stores are in malls outside of the city or in new developments like the south side works which cater to people who are driving.
