In my neighborhood of Squirrel Hill it's pretty good, but in a lot of other areas there is definitely crime. Especially in Homewood, Hazelwood, and Lincoln Place--super crazy!
Review Squirrel Hill North
Generally pretty good restaurants, it depends where you go but there are fancy places and more affordable ones as well.
There is a very nice gym available, many people just choose not to go because they do not care about their weight and believe themselves to be healthy.
