South Side enjoys a historic commercial district on the National Register and lies on the Monongahela River opposite downtown and minutes from the Oakland Civic district. Shops, restaurants and bars line East Carson Street and walking is inviting both there and along the riverfront River sports abound and biking all the way to Washington DC is possible on the Great Allegheny Passage although you may chose to bike the many bike trails that connect the city. For those interested in testing their physical endurance, there are winding historic steps that tie the "flats" of the South Side to its slopes. An annual October "Step Trek" invites participants to explore the slopes' neighborhood and enjoy breathtaking views while climbing many of its 12,000 steps.
South Side is minutes away from the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, The Andy Warhol and the Pittsburgh Symphony, Ballet, Opera and other cultural attractions.
The South Side was home to many of the steel mills that lined the Pittsburgh rivers and, thus, was home to many ethnic groups. Old churches and schools bear the imprint of various ethnic origins.
Shopping is eclectic as very few chain stores are present. The area claims some of the top restaurants in the region and its bars attract a youthful following.
The house is 21 miles from the Pittsburgh International airport ( $50.00 cab ride), 1.9 miles from the Amtrak station and 1 1/2 blocks from the 51 & 48 bus line. It is also 1.2 miles from the light rail transit station
