Apartments in Pittsburgh Neighborhoods
Pittsburgh can be broken down into the downtown area, called the Golden Triangle, and four main areas surrounding it.
The North Side is home to various neighborhoods in transition, with people becoming increasingly interested in renting apartments in this area. It is primarily composed of residential neighborhoods and is known for its architecturally interesting buildings and homes.
The South Side neighborhoods include the Southside Flats and Southside Slopes, and South Hills neighborhoods.
The East End is home to the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, Chatham College, and many city neighborhoods.
The West End includes Mt. Washington, with its world-famous view of the Downtown skyline, as well as the West End neighborhoods Elliott, Sheraden, and Duquesne Heights.
If you'd rather rent an apartment in a more suburban neighborhood, look to the South Hills neighborhoods such as Brookline, Carrick, Beechview, and Overbrook, some of the West End areas such as Oakwood and Westwood, as well as far North Side neighborhoods like Observatory Hill and Brighton Heights.
