Love visiting this neighborhood of Pittsburgh. There are cool places to stop and shop, and restaurants aplenty. A person can even go to the movies here. Nice to walk around and sample the architecture.

My sister-in-law lives in the neighborhood, so I am there periodically. The houses are often attractive and often have lovely gardens in front. However, as someone who has travelled the world, I would not recommend a special trip there for sightseeing.

Nice, safe neighborhood with a fun vibe. Great to stop for a quick coffee or some noodles. Two main streets are Forbes and Murray, both have interesting eateries.
