Lovely area close to bus stops, night life, and universities. You're never far away from something interesting when you live in Shadyside!
Shadyside is a perfect location for a grad student or young professional. It is very close to the University of Pittsburgh and CMU, and the neighborhood has very easy access to several bus lines. There are a lot of shops and restaurants all within walking distance, and the nightlife is lively. Rent in this neighborhood is much higher than most other areas of the city, and street parking can be a nightmare. But if you don't have a car, this area is convenient, lively, safe, and wonderful.
