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.

The massage envy facility is okay but over all the town was disappointing. The original synagogue's and many of the original houses are very nice. Only... More

While the area is still a Jewish neighborhood, it is intermingled with Asian, Italian, Mediterranean, etc. Shops and restaurants of many nationalities are interspersed throughout. It is a fun place to walk or drive by.

With broad sidewalks and a busy, interesting main street (Forbes Avenue) full of intriguing local shops, this is a Saturday destination for us.
