Close to Pittsburgh’s most established neighborhoods, and gritty Greenfield draws a new generation of homeowners with affordable housing and a do-it-yourself ethic.
Greenfield is a popular neighborhood for young families and first-time homebuyers due to its spectacular views of Pittsburgh's skyline and walkability to Squirrel Hill. It is located just southwest of the Squirrel Hill tunnel and Interstate 376 and is walkable to Squirrel Hill (and its well-regarded public high school).
Nearby Second Avenue offers an alternative route Downtown, while shopping and nightlife are just a few minutes' drives south on the storied Homestead Steel Works site. It is home to Saint John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church, Saint Rosalia's Church, and more than a dozen hillside-hugging staircases connecting pedestrians to public transportation and the neighborhood's independent businesses. It also offers plenty of free and low-cost fun for kids and families, such as a gym, outdoor pool, courts, basketball and bocce courts, baseball and soccer fields, and swimming pools. The Greenfield Community Association is an excellent source for other goings-on year-round.
