As a new homeowner in Beechview, I greatly enjoyed the article highlighting some of the area's businesses and restaurants ("Beechview a Big Draw for Pittsburgh Latino Residents," Sept. 8). While I am not Latino, I still enjoy living in such a unique corner of town. I believe articles like this further emphasize that Pittsburgh is "most livable" not only for the cost and convenience factor but also for the diversity aspect.
One thing I love about Broadway Avenue is the lack of chain restaurants and stores. The PG really did a nice job highlighting some of those stops (such as Tienda La Jiminez and Casa Rasta).
A small, related fact that the PG forgot to mention is Beechview is downwind from Dormont, one of the South Hills' most sought after and coveted neighborhoods. Given Beechview's proximity to Downtown, one could not ask for much more for the value.
Thanks to the PG, I hope that more people see what a "diamond in the rough" this neighborhood is. Good work, PG!
