"A beautiful boulevard near the heart of Squirrel Hill"

Wightman is one of the most beautiful streets in Pittsburgh. In its most picturesque section, it is an extremely wide street with only one lane traveling in each direction. It has wide sidewalks shaded by very old and tall trees. Most of the houses in this section are very large with huge yards. There are some townhouses here as well and they are generally well-maintained. At both ends of the street, there are more apartments and smaller houses, but the entire street appears to be well-maintained. I lived just off of this street and walked to school along it every morning. It was peaceful and residents are very friendly. It is conveniently located near the Squirrel Hill shopping district and is only a few blocks from Schenley Park, which is one of the largest parks in the city. It contains a visitor’s center with a café, nature trails, and ice rink, soccer fields, Phipps Conservatory (a recently expanded botanical garden), and many other amenities. It is also home to a large number of sculptures and monuments which make the park a grand space. Wightman gets some traffic, but because the street is so wide, it is rarely a real problem. In spite of its size, the street is easy to cross due to the clearly marked crosswalks that give pedestrians the right-of-way. It is truly a special street in a great location.
