    fine neighborhood, high density, lots of families, right next to Frick Park and the famous blue side.  Very much my idea of a good neighborhood.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

    •  Bethel Park here, in the 70s and 80s. (2+ / 0-)

      It (along with Mt. Lebanon) has a downtown along a main street with the light rail running through it.  I think Bethel should develop some of the neigborhood around the light rail more - it does have local businesses along Brightwood Road near the municipal building/library.  

      My dad grew up in Greenfield, and my parents lived on Beechwood Blvd. before they moved to Bethel before I was born.  Squirrel Hill isn't as jammed together as I see the new Portland development, though.

      9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.
