We came to check the area and have some pastries from an asian (most likely taiwanese) bakery. The area is just ok but the amazing variety of ethnic foods impresses. "I am sure there are many hidden gems to be discovered here" - the foodie greyhound in me wondered.

It's a middle-class residential neighborhood. Decided to visit after we finished the Museum. Unfortunately, none of the stores were appealing to us and the main drag was pizzerias and Asian take-out restaurants. Better parts of Pittsburgh to see.

This is a great diverse area of Pittsburgh. Although it is mostly known as a Jewish neighborhood over the years it has become more diverse. There are some great shops to visit; Little's Shoes, Ten Thousand Villages, and Orr's Jewelers and some small clothing shops. There is also a great (expensive) French pastry shop. There are a number of Asian... More

When I grew up in Squirrel Hill in the 50's, it was predominately a Jewish neighborhood. While there is still a significant Jewish population, the face of the neighborhood has changed and it is much more diverse. In part, because it is an easy transit ride or walk to the universities. In part because the neighborhood has beautiful older houses... More

Squirrel Hill is an area I pass through to get to Homestead and Kennywood Park. The area seems quiet we ate there once or twice at a fast food restuarant. I think the restaurant could have used some updating.

Squirrel Hill is a local middle-middle class neighborhood with the kind of shops and businesses that serve locals. Over the years, the neighborhood has lost most its ethnic feel and is now just another nondescript city residential neighborhood. place. There isn't a single thing to attract any visitor. Pittsburgh has some good stuff, but why waste time fighting the traffic... More
