"Lovely street in a lovely subdivision"

Swanson Lane is part of the Mill Grove subdivision in which I grew up. Two of my best friends lived on Swanson, so I have spent many hours playing and walking in its vicinity. I would prefer living on Swanson to living Mill Grove or Hathaway, because it is a short street with a cul de sac, which allows for very little traffic and the chance to really get to know your neighbors. One great feature of Swanson is that there is a huge empty lot at the cul de sac, and because of the lack of house at this location, you can see all throughout Upper St. Clair from this point, and the view is truly breath-taking.

"A traditional, picturesque suburban street"

My parents have owned a house on Mill Grove Road for 21 years now; I lived there with them from the time I was 4 until I graduated from high school in 2001. In addition to being a street with beautiful houses, almost every yard is professionally maintained. It is rather hilly, as is the neighborhood which bears its name, so it is not good for children learning to ride bikes or for people with health limitations to use for outdoor exercise, but in my opinion, the hills add to its charm (it is in the South Hills of Pittsbugh, after all).

There are tons of families with small children, so everyone drives pretty slowly. There is also a large number of pets in the neighborhood as well; people walking dogs can be seen at almost any hour of the day when there is light. Everyone is friendly and says and/or waves "Hi" to one another when passing in the street. It is truly a great place to live.
