The character of Bridgeville is exemplified by its slower-paced atmosphere. Access to public green spaces, like Chartiers Park, is easy from many locations in the borough since there are a few of them close by for residents to visit. Most areas in this borough are reasonably quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case around Interstate 79, Raymond P Shafer Highway or one of the railway lines.
Roughly two thirds of the population of this borough own their home and one third are renters. Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing many of the dwellings in this borough, while the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. A majority of the housing growth in this borough took place pre-1960. This part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area also has quite a good variety of unit sizes; it is quite easy to find homes ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
