Beechview is located southwest of Downtown, and has always been home to a diverse group of working class families.

It has many amenities that make it attractive for families who wish to live in the city, such as the Carnegie Library, good schools like Beechwood Elementary and Brashear High School, and recreational opportunities like Vanucci Field.

The Broadway-Beechview Avenue ridge top forms the "spine" of the Beechview community. Nearly all of its commercial establishments and churches are located along this corridor. The bus line and the "T" offer quick and easy access to Downtown or the South Hills.

The hilly topography is crossed by cobblestone streets lined with single family homes built in the years around the turn of the century. From cozy cottages to original homesteads, to the latest in architectural designs, Beechview offers home buyers a diversity of choices in both size and style.

Beechview residents of all ages have a variety of ways to fill their leisure time. Athletic programs, senior activities, and religious, civic and social organizations are available. Recreational facilities include two parks, four parklets, a public spray park, a senior citizens center and a public library.

The Seldom-Seen Greenway, one of the last undeveloped parcels of land in the city, can be explored by nature lovers.
