Brookline – A silent neighborhood
Brookline is a great neighborhood for families in Pittsburgh, it has great pubs and shopping opportunities, while the rents are also pretty affordable. It is located in the South Hills part of the city, southwest to the center. With it’s population of approximately 15,000 it can be considered the second largest neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.
In general this is a quite area of the city, but still there are plenty of things to do. If you are more of an introvert, you should definitely check out the Carnegie Library, which offers a fantastic variety to the citizens living here and to the visitors who are only here short-term.
At Brookline Blvd you can find pretty much anything when you think about shopping, so this is a great place to start if you want to buy some interesting things. If you plan on moving here with your family, it is definitely a wise move, the neighborhood has a lot of schools, such as the Pittsburgh Concord K-5.
Originally this was part of another borough, but in 1908 it was annexed to Pittsburgh. The neighborhood is surrounded by Beechview, Bon Air, Carrick and Overbrook. While the center of Pittsburgh is not very close, this little area compensates with a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The name is originating from a city in Massachusetts, it has been given to this neighborhood by the early settlers. Brookline has been changing quite significantly in the past decade, a tram to the city center was built in 1905, but later it has been closed in 1966. Thanks to the Liberty Tunnel now this area is so much easier to reach and this has also contributed a lot to the popularity of the neighborhood among citizens and visitors in Pittsburgh.
