Brookline in Pictures

Photos by Amy Fisher @pawsburgh Photography

Located in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, Brookline is the second largest Pittsburgh neighborhood.

Brookline housing values have been increasing over the last several years, as most people choose to stay here and available homes for sale remain low. Brookline is a wonderful place to live, work, shop, eat, and raise a family!

Moore Park celebrated its 80th Anniversary with a giant community picnic in August of 2019.

Rich in diversity, Brookline is a family friendly community with kids from different cultures and backgrounds. With parks, playgrounds, a community pool, dek hockey rink and 3 elementary schools what family wouldn’t want to raise their kids here?

Known for the steep cobblestone streets, Brookline kids have no problem riding bikes around the neighborhood and staying in shape!

Our main Boulevard underwent a very large reconstruction in 2013 which lasted until the spring of 2014. New sidewalks, streetlights, and decorative landscaping were put in place after years of planning and anticipation.

The walkable main street is home to many mom & pop restaurants, bakeries, salons and shops.

Dan McGibbeny succeeded in both professional sports and as a community champion. He was a tennis and little league star, inducted into the Western Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in 1983. His tennis team won the championship round in 1976. Danny passed away from cancer a year later. Mayor Richard Caliguiri dedicated the newly built field to his memory in October 1977. Danny has family who still reside in Brookline.

Annually Brookline’s main boulevard is transformed to host parades, Breeze 5k walk/run, Breezefest festival and other family friendly holiday events.
