Shadyside is the ultimate in city living in Pittsburgh. It has the shops, the restaurants, the tree lined streets, and the night life. Yet it is just minutes away from PITT and CMU, the Oakland hospitals and even downtown.
When others have to get in their car after an evening of fun on Walnut Street or Ellsworth, you can just walk home to your apartment. In the morning you can just walk to the nearest coffee shop for your breakfast.
By either walking to campus or taking the shuttle or bus, you save the expense and hassle of parking in Oakland. The short bus ride on the busway to town also saves the parking expense.
Have no doubt about it, Shadyside is hot!
