I’ve been living in East Allegheny(West Deutschtown) for just over two months now. I absolutely love this neighborhood. There’s lots of great food nearby. Subba kitchen, Siempre Algo, Park House, Huzsar, North Shore Deli, and more. There’s a grocery store, and gas station in the neighborhood which is very convinient. The proximity to downtown is unmatched by any other neighborhood in the city, you’re practically there. You have Pittsburgh’s Central Park at your doorstep. Every major highway in the city is accessible within a two minute drive or less. The only downside to the neighborhood are the crackheads that roam about, but they don’t really bother me.

I live in the bad side of town right next to a hospital. While there are a lot of privately owned places and a few big company places like Giant Eagle, a gas station and rite aid I usually ride the bus else where to get what I need. Most of the businesses are dirty and the customer service is awful. Even Giant Eagle is badly stocked and pretty dirty. The 15 minute bus ride is worth it. Other places in Pittsburgh are great, such as southside, waterfront and waterworks.
The problem with the food in my area which is Deutschttown is it's not consistent. One time the food is great, other times it's like you didn't go to the same restaurant. I usually walk downtown to eat anywhere.
