South of the Monongahela River waterfront, and just across the river from downtown Pittsburgh, is the desirable neighborhood of South Side. Made up of two separate sub neighborhoods, the South Side Slopes and the South Side Flats, South Side is known know for its nightlife, its tremendous character, and its revitalized commercial district.

Once a run-down industrial area, South Side -- like many neighborhoods in the greater Pittsburgh region -- has undergone an impressive transformation since the 1980s. Today, this area has become a prime destination for restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. One particularly well known area is South Side Works, a collection of restaurants and shops located on the site of a former steel mill. Here you can have dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, check out a movie in the brand new cinema, or embark on a pub crawl through the many bars and clubs along East Carson Street.

The popularity of South Side is enhanced by its easy accessibility via public transit. The area is served by several bus lines as well as the light rail system, making it a breeze for commuters to get to work in downtown Pittsburgh, as well as for students who live downtown to visit South Side for its entertainment and nightlife.

Real estate in South Side has risen dramatically in value in recent years as its popularity has increased. Fortunately, the charm of the original homes has not been lost to history. The neighborhood known as South Side Flats features one of the largest collections of original Victorian homes along a main street that you can find anywhere in the United States. In fact, the entire length of East Carson Street is designated as a national historic district. This means that if you are lucky enough to own a home here, there are very strict rules as to what can and cannot be done to the exterior of the home. Elsewhere in the Flats, one can find street after street of charming row homes, as well as some newer condominiums and apartments. Like the homes themselves, the residents of South Side are an eclectic mixture of those who have lived here for generations, and those who are just discovering the charms of this appealing neighborhood.

South Side is a place where people want to be, and where you can easily get to wherever you are headed. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a place here to call home.
