Greenfield is located southeast of Downtown and is surrounded by Squirrel Hill and Hazelwood. It is accessible by Second Avenue, the Parkway East, and the Boulevard of the Allies.

Greenfield is one of Pittsburgh's "surprise" neighborhoods, where spectacular views of the Downtown skyline are found in unexpected spots throughout the community.  It is home of the Magee Recreation Center, and is on the border of Schenley Park. The Greenfield Avenue and Murray Avenue business districts are thriving, and the neighborhood is just minutes from Squirrel Hill shops.

Declaring itself as "a suburb in the city," homebuyers can find the house to fit their needs, from Victorians to Pittsburgh boxes to post-World War II ranch houses.  A homebuyer looking for convenience, affordability, and a personal view of  July 4th, Light-Up Night, or the Three Rivers Regatta fireworks can find the home of their dreams in Greenfield.

The Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh is a thriving commercial and residential area. In fact, Oakland is Pennsylvania's third largest "Downtown." Only Center City, Philadelphia and Downtown Pittsburgh can claim more commerce and activity than Oakland.  It is surrounded by Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, Greenfield, Bloomfield, the Hill District, and Bluff.

Art museums, history centers, prestigious universities, grand architecture, quaint coffee shops, international cuisine, arcades, art cinemas, live entertainment, and two main thoroughfares all describe the hustle and bustle that is Oakland.  In short, Oakland is the cultural, medical, educational, spiritual, and technological center of Pittsburgh, boasting many world-renowned institutions and attractions.  Moreover, it is the entrance to the charm and natural beauties of expansive Schenley Park.

Many Oakland residents are students at the University of Pittsburgh or Carnegie Mellon University, creating a diverse student/residential body that is comprised of individuals from at least 90 nations.  Long considered the cultural center of Pittsburgh, Oakland also houses the Carnegie Library Main Branch, the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, Carnegie Music Hall, and Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall.

If it's shopping and dining you're after, be sure to cruise the Craig Street business district.  Once the sun goes down, grab your favorite beverage in one of Oakland's many nightclubs.

Memories of Roberto Clemente and Honus Wagner remain strong in Oakland, where the outfield wall of Forbes Field still stands.  The landscape is dotted with the architectural genius of Henry Hornbostel--Rodef Shalom synagogue, and all visitors must be sure to visit Phipps Conservatory, Fifth and Forbes avenues, Pittsburgh's two main east-west traffic arteries, pass through Oakland, with bus stops on nearly every corner.   Most Oaklanders get around by bus or by foot, lending a true "city" closeness and atmosphere.
