Squirrel Hill is a large residential neighborhood in the east end of Pittsburgh that dates back to the 1760s.
It has had a large Jewish population since the 1920s, when Jewish people began to move to the neighborhood in large numbers from adjacent areas. Squirrel Hill is home to over twenty synagogues as well as three Jewish day schools and the Jewish Community Center.
The neighborhood's popular business district is centered at the corner of Murray and Forbes Avenues. Business include a Barnes & Noble book store, a Giant Eagle grocery store, two movie theaters and various specialty shops along with many restaurants.
