Squirrel Hill (east end of Pittsburgh), on Aylesboro between Shady and Denniston, 2 new homes currently being built in our neighborhood--I believe they're asking in the $400s. Very walkable community, near library, shops, etc.

Pittsburgh is a great place to live but it can be difficult to get around. Everyone has their favorite areas and is very loyal to them. I have the perspective of growing up in the east and living in the south and north hills. I think the south hills is the best bet, especially if you are working in the city and can use our "T" light rail system. I live in Bethel Park which is a great place to raise a family. I would also recommend Upper St. Clair, Peters Township and Mt. Lebanon. Taxes are lower in Peters which is where we initially looked 2 years ago, but found we could get more house for the money in Bethel Park.

Pittsburgh is a great city to live and there are many great neighborhoods here. Having lived here all of my life, I find it a very interesting area, as we have a rich tradition of family, culture and neighborhoods that have historically evolved with rich traditions. We have excellent health care facilities, great universities,marvelous sports teams, and wonderful venues such as our zoo, museums, and science centers.

Moving from the center city area and into the suburbs, there are many areas with new construction. Not a large city, it is a quick ride from the western to the eastern suburbs as long as you are not traveling during rush hour. However, a city of many hills, rivers, bridges and tunnels that must be traversed to get around the city, rush hour traffic can be challenging. With that in mind, I would suggest your search to begin in an area that is in the direction of where you might be working, or close to the airport if frequent air travel is necessary.
If you can share a little more detail on what you might be looking for, I would be happy to send you more specific information.

You are moving to a terrific city with so much to offer. As far as family friendly neighborhoods with new construction in your price range you will dozens and dozens that meet that criteria. If you are relocating for a job then where you or your spouse work will be a big factor in narrowing down the best area to live. How close do you want to be to the city?

We currently live in Washington County and love the Peters Township area. We also lived in Pittsburgh years ago in Westmoreland County and liked it there as well. We would also have considered areas north of the city, but it was too far of a commute for us. And there are excellent neighborhoods to the west near the airport not to mention tons of great locations closer to the city in Allegheny County.

I'm sure if you give more detail on what your needs are you will get some excellent suggestions from the Pittsburgh folks on here. Good luck with your search for the ideal place for your family!
