This neighborhood is absolutely beautiful, with people so friendly, you’ll be waving hello to several of them walking down the street. Scenery is priceless, and there are many activities that are perfect to do with family. Wish I still lived here!

Squirrel Hill North is a great place, with great restaurants and small shops within walking distance, as well as parks and schools. The neighborhood itself is very safe, and residents are friendly! One of my favorite things to do in the mornings is walk into "upstreet" Squirrel Hill and get a pastry or coffee from a local bakery.
I lived here for three years before, and forgot how much I love Squirrel Hill. So much diversity, everything you need within walking distance. Right in the middle of the action and close to all the neighborhoods you would want to go.
