What: It is Pittsburgh’s version of the East Village in NYC. An awesome main street with tons to do and see.

Why it Works: The main part of South Side’s Carson Street is 21 blocks of everything you ever could want in your neighborhood. It is a truly urban setting that has dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, and everything else in between. East Carson Street is one of Pittsburgh’s premier places to work and play. Carson Street is conveniently located just minutes away from downtown and Oakland, our city’s two largest areas. It is a large mix of life long residents, college students, families, and young businessmen and women. It is not unusual to see a young tattooed twenty-something year old walking with an elderly person out for an afternoon stroll. The overall mood of the people I would say is energetic and proud. It takes a special kind of person to live on Carson.
