I like the slopes because it’s in very close distance to everything in Pittsburgh and affordable compared to other neighborhoods here. I also like it because of some of the breathtaking views from the slopes of the city of Pittsburgh. I don’t like how run down some of the houses are and the landscaping everywhere could use some help. There’s a lot of garbage. Not a fan of the parking either it’s very tight. I do like the walking distance to Carson street though it’s nice for people who like to go out at night, or just for dinner! Overall the neighborhood is average.

Great location, amazing views, and wonderful people. This feels like the Brooklyn of Pittsburgh with incredible views of the city. There are some great parks, and you can easily live here without a car.
Beautiful view of the city. Wonderful neighbors. So close to the thriving neighborhood of the southside flats. Housing is cheap.
