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.

Regent Square has a very nice downtown area. While I don't live in Regent Square, it is only about a twenty minute walk from my house. I love the urban location. It is centrally located and surrounded by several other nice neighborhoods. Easily accessible right up the street is up the shopping plaza Edgewood Town Center. Braddock Avenue has several nice restaurants and establishments. Square Cafe, for example, holds personal nostalgic value in present-day delicious food. D's is a great place to grab a bite with a group of friends. Ease is a nice restaurant for a form night out on a Friday or Saturday night.
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.
