What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Squirrel Hill South Pittsburgh

I like my very friendly neighbors and proximity to a large park. I also like that it is quiet. It also is not too far from a neighborhood that has a lot of great restaurants.

I don't usually visit restaurants in our area. There are a lot of pizza and asian cuisine (almost too much) so eating outside our area is preferred.

I like being able to eat at all the Mexican, Indian, and Asian restaurants on Murray Avenue. I like being able to walk to school. I like being able to go to Frick Park, especially when they do Shakespeare plays under the trees.

I like having walkable safe streets in my neighborhood. All of our nearby neighbors are friendly. Shopping, restaurants, and public transportation to downtown are only a short drive away.

I want parking lot structure with roof. I want more car towed because some cars parked without permission

Our neighborhood is very homely and houses a lot of the city's Jewish population, though it is quite diverse. I love the pizza shops in town.
