3 Events to Check Out Neighborhoods – Mt. Washington, Bellevue, Point Breeze

One of the best parts of Pittsburgh, as you probably already know (but since it is back to school season – I know we have some new to Pittsburgh readers – bare with us as we educate them on why Pittsburgh is amazing) – is the Neighborhoods.  The city of Pittsburgh has 88 neighborhoods – you can check out a map and a list here.  Outside of the city – there are even more neighborhoods and boroughs in Allegheny county.  Three of these neighborhoods have orgaized events this week to invite others to come to check out their neck of the woods.

These three events give you a chance to check out Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods – South, East and Northwest.
