If Norman Rockwell were alive today, the scenes he might paint might well be set in Regent Square. This quaint neighborhood on the eastern edge of the Pittsburgh is made up of attractive family homes and tree-lined streets, many of which are made of brick. The small business district hosts an old-style movie theater, adding to its charm. Abundant trees gives the neighborhood an almost park-like quality.
The neighborhood's close proximity to fabulous Frick Park coupled with an eclectic and thriving three-and-a-half-block commercial area further adds to its appeal as a great place to visit. While Regent Square is a neighborhood onto itself, it is actually composed of portions of four municipalities: Edgewood, Pittsburgh, Swissvale and Wilkinsburg.
Regent Square is considered a family neighborhood in every sense of the word. Neighbors get together for sing-alongs on porches. Residents will stop and chat while walking their dogs. While visiting, check out the mural in the heart of the business district that depicts parts of Regent Square and Frick Park. You'll find residents pointing out their homes and identifying birds indigenous to the area.
Even Norman Rockwell would have had a hard time staying focused on his paintings while visiting Regent Square!
