Oakland

Home to Carnegie Mellon, Pitt, and UPMC
Known to be one of Pittsburgh's liveliest neighborhoods, it is the educational and medical heart of the city since it's home to Carnegie Mellon, Pitt, UPMC, and nearby Carlow University. Naturally, a ton of students live in this area but it also hosts young professionals and families. In terms of popular spots, you can find people enjoying the likes of Essie's Original Hot Dog Shop, Conflict Kitchen, or Spice Island Tea House.

The Cathedral of Learning is the main landmark in this neighborhood and can be seen for miles as it dominates the Oakland skyline. There's also two world-class museums here, which give the area a bit of culture. The bottom line for this neighborhood is that it's close to all of the major universities and provides great access to the rest of the city.
