Bloomfield
Bloomfield is also known as Pittsburgh's "Little Italy".

Bloomfield is a middle-class Italian-German neighborhood that is very quiet and offers affordable housing close to campus. The neighborhood is populated largely by families, and most apartments are in older houses or small apartment buildings. If you are looking to buy a house, homes in Bloomfield go for reasonable prices and have good resale values.

Catching a bus can be easy on the main street, Liberty Avenue. Or even bike to campus when the weather is nice.

It has a lively mix of restaurants (my favorite being Thai Cuisine), coffee shops, and Italian grocery stores (be sure to check out the Groceria Italiana’s “homemade” ravioli) in its business district along Liberty Avenue. Bloomfield is the middle of everthing! Providing easy access to the Strip District and Shadyside’s shopping districts.
