Point Breeze is a wealthy residential neighborhood in Pittsburgh's East End. It's essentially a residential extension of neighboring posh (and more well-known) Shadyside and Squirrel Hill (though it does have a somewhat distinct atmosphere). Point Breeze is also adjacent to the vast wilderness of Frick Park and the much smaller Mellon Park. Lush tree canopies hover over diverse residential styles ranging from attractive middle class homes to luxurious mansions.

there is so much vegetation here... it can be hard to find the houses!










Point Breeze has a tiny, but charming, business district


the Point serves up Belgian fare

Pittsburgh is one of those cities that just doesn't stop surprising me. I literally always find myself searching for Pittsburgh photos on the forums because I know I'll be in for a treat. Theres all this incredible grit I usually love and then theres those nice leafy "poshy" neighbs you just can't turn down. Gotta love Pittsburgh.

BTW, how long does it take to go from one end of the city to the other? (car, bus)I've always wanted to have an idea of the city's size that's all.

it's a 13 minute drive from Point Breeze, which is on the eastern edge of the city, to Downtown

That's not bad at all. I guess that's the reason why many people prefer to live away in the metro area rather than it the city proper. Can't wait for your next Pittsburgh thread. Cheers.

Wow those are some nice pics of a really nice neighborhood. I like all the trees too. A lot of the pittsburgh picture threads don't seem to show a lot of trees.
