Not only does it have spectacular views of the city of Pittsburgh, but the slow pace and mix of residents from all walks of life creates a friendly neighborhood feel.

Neighbors welcome all of the tourists who come to view our “steel city.” We laugh when they comment they thought it’d be a lot smokier, dirtier, and more polluted.
