Beechview is located southwest of Downtown, and is surrounded by Banksville, Ridgemont, West End, and Brookline. The Broadway-Beechview Avenue ridgetop forms the "spine" of the Beechview community. Nearly all of its commercial establishments and churches are along this corridor. The bus line and the "T" give quick access to Downtown or the South Hills.
The hilly topography is criss-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 homebuyers a diversity of choices in both size and style.
Beechview offers residents of all ages a variety of ways to fill their leisure time. Athletic programs, senior activities, and church, civic and social organizations are available there. 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.
As a community, it's imperative that our resident's remain vigilant and look out for one another on a daily basis. By working hand and hand with the police, our Block Watch can help make Beechview a better and safer place to live and work.
The Beechview Block Watch meeting is held on the First Thursday of each month at 7:00 P.M. @ Beechview United Presbyterian Church, 1621 Broadway Avenue (Side Entrance).
