South Side


The heart of the South Side is Carson Street, starting around 9th Street. Its 19th-century shops and walk-ups have won national recognition as a model Main Street, for good reason. Bakeries, hardwares and ethnic benefit societies coexist with restaurants, old and new, as well as novelty boutiques and bars. You'll find some great houses here, from the brand new to the rehabbed homes on the slopes that used to go for a song. Don't miss the great riverfront trail for biking or running or the chance to catch great views on a trek of city steps – about half are legal streets, and Pittsburgh's 750 staircases double San Francisco's total. South Side residents can easily get Downtown by taking the 48 or 51 bus routes, while the Station Square area offers unique service by way of the T and the Mon Incline. Student favorites like the 54 and 75 provide transit to Oakland as well as other great neighborhoods -- 54 also goes to the North Side, the Strip District, Polish Hill and Bloomfield, while the 75 serves Shadyside's Ellsworth Avenue and East Liberty's Bakery Square.
