1. Friendly neighbors. 2.Playgrounds very close. 3. Schools are very close, with in walking distance of our street. 4. Business area within walking distance. 5.Restaurants and bars in walking distance. 6. Two grocery stores within walking distance. 7. Movie theater within walking distance. 8. A variety of shops within walking distance. 9.A large family swimming pool nearby, free to residents. 10. Organized athletic programs for both boys and girls.

I like how close the grocery store is. Also it is a central location, you can easily get to down town, the airport, etc. The neighbors are all friendly.

Pittsburgh is a very livable city. There is a lot to do and see nearby. There is a good mix of food and lots of parks and things to do.

What is unique is that most of us are more mature citizens and retirees.I go with friends to the nearby coffee shop and convenience. Also we have several restaurants in walking distance.

picnic is one of the things. Another is mixing up with friends. And finally eating out with friends.
