Turtle Creek Reviews

I've lived in Turtle Creek for my entire life. My great grandfather moved to Pittsburgh from Poland and my house has been in my family for several generations. It was once a very small, family-oriented town but it has been overtaken by a lot of people who have littered, car-jacked, and vandalized property. A good majority of the people who live there are low-income and treat the township with disrespect. It's very upsetting, but there are improvements trying to be made in the community.

I love the street I live on. It is quiet and rarely anyone is ever outside. So if your looking for a peaceful area with friendly neighbors I suggest Brown Avenue. ALTHOUGH, the one thing I do not like is someone got killed a few streets over. Also someone was shot on the same street I live on but it was said to be an accident.
Turtle Creek is a decent neighborhood to live. However, the violence in Turtle Creek has definitely increased. The schools are ok. They have gotten better since I have been in school. However, the statistics are lower than other local public schools. There is not much to do for night life. There are a couple of bars in the area. But that is pretty much it. There are 3 parks in the area. The cost of living is fairly cheap. I am in a middle class bracket and can afford living. However, I don't have much money to really do activities. There are many different types of races and nationalities in Turtle Creek. I think Turtle Creek is a decent place to live. It's close to the parkway, has stores and shopping in convenient areas, and the schools are fairly decent.
