Regent Square is one of my favorite neighborhoods. It is set away from the city living and feels more like a suburb in close proximity to the city living style. The neighborhood still has a great selection of restaurants and coffee shops and is situated next to Frick Park. Pet owners are highly welcomed in this neighborhood. Also, the neighborhood has just amazing trees that makes it feel very nature-focused. It is also located near bus transportation and convenient to commuting to Downtown. Two major drawbacks are the public schools (K-12) and the high property taxes for an owner (about $5k per year per $100k in house value. Yes, expensive!) Safety is pretty decent, but I would make sure to lock your car doors every night. Even to this day (2018), items are stolen from vehicles in street-parking when doors are unlocked. I do not believe there are break-ins in any vehicles or homes.

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.
